Indie Rock:
Death Cab for Cutie

Best known for the beautiful track ‘I will follow you into the dark’, the indie rock band have just released their eighth studio album, Kintsugi, which is aptly named after a Japanese art movement in which broken ceramics are fused with precious metals to be repaired.

The title was inspired after Chris Walla, one of the guitarists, left the group after 17 years. The new songs, therefore, are just as much about reconciling with the past as moving forward. Listen to the breathtaking guitar work on ‘Ingenue’ and ‘You’ve haunted all my life’ and delight in the album’s melancholic beauty.

Let’s hope that even without Walla they play heartfelt old hits like ‘A Lack of color’ or ‘Soul meets body’. (EN)

Hailing from Atlanta, the US city that produced rappers like Andre 3000, Rome Fortune’s style combines elements of ‘90s rap, electronic music and regional hip-hop traditions. So grab a beer and come and listen! (JM)

Back with new album Full Speed, Kid Ink is definitely not going to slow things down at his concert in Pumpehuset. The record, which had mixed reviews, debuted at #14 in the US album charts in January. (LAB)
