Deranged seems to be the common adjective when writing about the Dead Pretties. You be the judge. What seems clear though is that the London band who released their debut single just a couple of months ago are destined for bigger things.

Oh yeah! Just to explain: Checklist is our new weekly showcase of new music. We’re going to be doing this every Friday morning, so if you’re up for some great new music, tune in!

Heidi visited the Vienna based New Sound Festival for the first time this year. Since it’s been going strong for the last two years we thought it a safe bet. Plus the ever energizing White Miles were playing!

The festival is held every year in March at the Ottakringer Brewery, an amazing and pretty much perfect venue. The highlight of the evening was (besides the already mentioned Tirolean rock duo White Miles) the performance of Joan As Police Woman and Benjamin Lazar Davis. Check them out – they just released an album called Let It Be You – you won’t be disappointed.

An already great evening was made even better when we discovered the food trucks in front. All I’m gonna say is: if you find yourself in Vienna hungry, find the Pastrami Baby guys. I promise, you won’t regret it.
