Very nice write-up. I absolutely love this site. Keep it up!
Sixth June started their musical adventure back in 2007 and they are considered one of the purest talents in the minimal synth new scene. Rising from the obscure music scene in Belgrade, they re-based some years ago in the analog synthesizers paradise called Berlin.
Their debut album, Everytime, released back in March 2010 by the German label Genetic Music and the previous EP on Mannequin, Back For A Day, was bringing the band to play to most of Europe. The duo represents perfectly the two sides of the same coin, in fact while Laszlo is producing obscure but expressive, powerful and danceable textures, on the back side the voice of Lidija is living the shape to a wobbling atmosphere you won’t escape from.
Lidija, apart singing in Sixth June, is a professional actress. Laszlo, composer of all the tracks, instead is an illustrator and music video director.
Strongly recommended to fans of Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Soft Metals, Xeno & Oaklander.
You can stream the record in it's entirety via self-titled.

A Great Big Pile of Leaves continue to tour in support of their sophomore LP You're Always On My Mind, which was released on July 2nd, 2013 via Topshelf Records. The record went on to debut at #1 on Billboard's Northeast Heatseekers Chart and gain a number of press accolades. Since the summer, they've toured with The Front Bottoms, mewithoutYou, and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, and played a number of headlining dates including a sold out release show for a crazy hometown crowd at the Studio at Webster Hall.
This tour will bring the band to the west coast for the first time in support of You're Always On My Mind. See below for all confirmed dates and check www.agreatbigpileofleaves.com for the most up to date information.

The Grammys announced their nominations with some extra flash and fanfare this year, flipping the usual early morning podium announcement into a primetime concert special live from the Staples Center in L.A. LL Cool J, who hosted last year’s Grammy broadcast, was back to MC this show as he will for the ceremony on 1/26. Performers included inescapable 2013 stars Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Robin Thicke, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift, all of whom received nominations in major categories. Keith Urban and Miguel teamed for a typically suave cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” too, which was truly pleasant. But the big news was the unveiling of the nominations for the major categories. Find those below.
South Philly hardcore/punk activists Cop Problem's latest battle cry, Buried Beneath White Noise, is charged with the quartet's most enraged anthems yet. With four new tracks engineered by Will Yip (Paint It Black, Circa Survive, Balance & Composure), the dueling thunder of guitarist Randon Martin and bassist George G create diverse and deadly riffage, the percussive backbone provided by Joshua Cohen unilaterally devastates with white-knuckled blasting rolls while his sibling Deb Cohen violently unloads a torrent of vocal fury in retaliation to the vast, daily injustices afflicting innocent life around the globe.
Cop Problem recently self-released Buried Beneath White Noise digitally, but this week the final plans are being locked on the pending physical manifestation of the EP. The 7" pressing will be released in February 2014 through an international joint effort between British DIY label, Prejudice Me, for European territories, and NYC-area-based and Earsplit-operated, The Compound, for North America. Preorders will be available immediately following the start of the year.
