Roadburn: Essential Sounds 22.6.18

June 22, 2018

Whilst we’re still enjoying our vacation from Roadburn HQ (still separately, though united by our ability to befriend foreign cats), we have our trusted contributors taking care of playlist duties.

José Carlos, Gijs, Jo and Davy are heralding summer with a wide array of sounds – whether it’s Here Lies Man, Tzusing,  kaukolampi, Baba Naga, The Armed, Sortilegia or Mz.412, this week’s playlist is as scorching and dark, as it is adventurous and exotic at times.

Starting off with Brazil’s underground heroes, Deaf Kids, who are currently taking Europe by storm, we can only hope summer’s here to stay!

Normal service resumes next week!

Roadburn Essential Sounds 15.6.18 (by Tomas Lindberg)

June 15, 2018

When we realised that we needed someone to take charge of our weekly playlist due to coinciding vacations, we knew there were several people we could turn to for help. One that stand out for his insatiable appetite for new music would be perfect, someone who can present a little slice of their current audio passions with the same love and attention to detail that we put into the playlists. So, we asked Tomas Lindberg to step in this week.

He’s known to most as the frontman for At The Gates and Disfear, but also known to some as the enthusiastic Swedish man who is down the front, banging his head and raising his fists at many a Roadburn performance.

So, without further ado, here is a list of Tompa’s current top tunes.

Uran – Emp (Höga Nord Rekords)

Henrik Palm – Missoula (Fetish Records)

Craft – Darkness Falls (Season Of Mist)

Black Salvation – In a Casket’s Ride (Relapse Records)

The Skull Defekts – A Brief History Of Rhythm, Dub, Life And Death (Thrill Jockey)

Robocobra Quartet – Short Stretch Of Day (Abbreviated Records)

Revevorum Ib Malacht – Where Escapism Ends (AnnapurnA)

Dungen & Woods – Loop (Kemado Records)

Agrimonia – A World Unseen (Southern Lord)

The Excorsist – Pusher (Höga Nord Rekords)

Roadburn: Essential Sounds 1.6.18

June 1, 2018

Each week, we’ll collate a playlist of songs that we’re listening to at Roadburn HQ and put them into playlist form via Spotify. Not all the songs will be new, not all of them will be from artists that have played Roadburn or will in the future; consider it a glimpse into what’s inspiring us right now.

If you like what you hear, please subscribe to the playlist – we’ll be updating it regularly! Click here or see below to check out the inaugural Roadburn: Essential Sounds playlist.

Our first ever Roadburn: Essential Sounds play list kicks off with Soft Kill – a track taken from their recently released album, Savior. Swiftly following is Our Raw Heart – a new track from Yob, which will appear on their new album of the same name, which is due out a week today. Welcome back Yob!

We hope these playlists will highlight new bands, and reinvigorate your love for old favourites. It’s been fun to put together – same time next week?

Experiencing Roadburn Festival 2018 with Converge's Jacob Bannon

A huge thanks to Frank and Hollie at Metal Injection who came to Roadburn this year – and created this video documenting their experience with us.

They take a look at what makes Roadburn such a unique experience: the hardships, the changes, the curation process, and more. Including interviews with 2018 curator Jacob Bannon of Converge, festival organizer / creator, Walter Hoeijmakers, and many more!

Roadburn 2019: Heilung, Louise Lemón, Gore

April 25, 2018

We have already started to lay the foundations for next year’s festival, set for April 11-14 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands. We continue our quest for mind-altering, life-changing music, and we hope you will join us in welcoming the following artists to Roadburn 2019:

Heilung, who will bring their shamanic, amplified history from early medieval Northern Europe to the 2019 festival.

Louise Lemón will be preaching her death gospel to the gathered masses.

GORE, the legendary Dutch avant-garde hardcore pioneers, are reuniting to focus on Lifelong Deadline.
