So, you might be wondering; What’s up with Radiohead At Ease lately. Then there updates, then there’s nothing for a while and then you’re spamming like there’s no Tomorrow.
Pretty annoying for the daily At Ease readers, as it is for me. What went wrong? Well, nothing went wrong as such, but the past couple of years have been pretty insane when it comes to the workload, mostly for Excelsior Recordings. So I might as well tell you more about it. Or, a shameless plug…
Excelsior Recordings is a record label based in Amsterdam and still growing strong in the Netherlands, and slowly but surely getting more coverage in the rest of Europe and elsewhere in the world. An indie label with a wide range of artists, who need a lot of attention, but we do it with a passion. A passion for good music. We’re working with artists like Alamo Race Track, Moss, Daily Bread, DORLEAC, Tim Knol, Triggerfinger, Lola Kite, Anne Soldaat, El Pino & The Volunteers, Scram C Baby, Beans & Fatback, The Sore Losers and zZz… just to name a few of our roster. Most of the names might not ring a bell, but now you know what’s keeping me busy.
So, that’s that. What about At Ease? Well, I’ll keep on working on the site. 13 years of hard work is not something I’d like to give up just now. We’ve got a new Radiohead album coming our way, sometime soon we hope. And Mr. Sean Owen is going to give a helping hand with news updates. At least, that’s what he promised. So, that sorta sums it up. Sorry for the lack of (regular) updates. We’re getting it back on the road.
And since I’m on it, I’d like to introduce the band MOSS to you if you don’t mind. They’ve just played in France, will be in Britain shortly and this Saturday they’re playing New York City at CMJ. So, give them a listen. Or if you’re in New York this weekend, drop by at the Bowery Poetry Club on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 8pm to see them live.
Here’s a couple of videos. And here’s a Spotify playlist. Please let me know what you think.
