A THOUSAND FUEGOS (Vienna)
Austrian noise-lo-fi-pop whizzkid Wolfgang Möstl (Killed By 9 Volt Batteries, Sex Jams etc.) is bringing his bedroom project to stage. After about 400 diy recorded songs released on cassettes, floppy discs and other odd media the time is right for a full scale debut album. Mile Me Deaf puts together Wolfgang's love for 90s independent rock from Guided By Voices to Dinosaur Jr., quirky pop tunes and his passion for self made intruments.
"Eat Skull" is a magnificent outsider record, brimming with devotion, which will allow Möstl to establish himself as an alternative force. It refuses to sound nostalgic, instead it reinvirgorates a genre often carelessly manipulated." (The Line Of Best Fit)
A Thousand Fuegos is viennas newest wunderkind, people fainted when he played live and his latest album "The Treachery Of Things" got great critical response (i.e. "Artist Of The Week", radio FM4). Soap&Skin personally invited him to open for her at her show in brussels, he also played and toured with bands like M83, Animal Collective, +++
ATF will release a new EP featuring Remixes by Thieves Like us and others right before the tour.
His music has great style, showing his love for trance music, ibiza house as well as a well written song. But listen for yourself!
