    25th Anniversary Celebrations in Bochum

    Aug 10, 2015

    Germany: come and join us this Saturday in Bochum!

    Celebrating twenty-five years of musical diversity, City Slang is hard to define if you like genre-labels: Techno, Indietronic, Alt-Country, Folk, Noise ... Doom-Folk ... we never really cared about WHAT it was, as long as it was super-exciting.

    So Saturday is going to be an adequately open minded party. We brought two of our all-time favourite bands Caribou and the Notwist, and special guests, City Slang newcomers/old-timers HeCTA. And afterwards it's all rave with Roman Flügel, Pantha Du Prince and many many more. Thank you Ruhrtriennale for having us, we... cannot... WAIT!

Consider Naytronix’s second full-length, Mister  […] READ ON

The Diet

SLANG50073LP | SLANG50073DIGITAL | SLANG50073

HeCTA is the brainchild of Kurt Wagner, Ryan Norris and Scott Martin of Lambchop, but don't call it a "side-project"! HeCTA is rather an "expanded universe"! Exploring and experimenting with the idea of combining the notion of “song”, elements from stand up comedy, electronic music and a shared love of the electronic form and it’s many permutations, HeCTA and the album “The Diet”  […] READ ON
