By Livia Stier

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND WITH LUIS VASQUEZ OF THE SOFT MOON

For Luis Vasquez, the founding member of The Soft Moon, darkness seems to come to him in many shapes and sounds. His self-titled debut

is a harrowing journey through his past, breathing heavily, contrasting whispers with screams. Bleak, hollow industrial noises chase his distant voice through a landscape of droning bass and drums, reminiscent of ’80s punk fuzz and new wave. This record will tear you apart – in the very best way.

How do you start your writing process?I usually begin with a bassline or my drum machines.

How do you know a song is finished?When it sounds to me like a song that will never end; it sounds infinite. In terms of ending songs live on stage... I like the sounds to fall apart and crumble. In a way I fear closure. I fear death a little bit. I don’t really know how to end things, so I end in chaos.

Why do you often refrain from lyrics?I can honestly say that I’m very bad at writing lyrics.

I create more emotion sonically. That’s where I’m telling the story. So the vocals are only an addition. If I do it, I’m typically going to use it texturally, saying a phrase over and over, almost hypnotically. Lyrics are the very last thing I add.

Is there such a thing as a Soft Moon ‘sound-scape’? I think the vocals, if anything, most define The Soft Moon. They’re probably the softest part within the construction of a song.

How does that relate to you describing them as only an ‘addition’?You know… they come last. If you’re forming a planet you’ve got the core, you’ve created the prairie and then what’s the outside layer? It’s the glow.

Your distinctive visuals seem strongly entwined with the music. Is it deliberate?I’m not sure why I went with that direction visually. Now that I think about it, when I hear sound I see shapes. I just let myself go. I just created artwork based on what I was writing musically. For example, when I hear a kick drum I see a circle, or a rectangle for the bass.

FRIDAY 13 MAYTHE FLESHTONES / THE ANACONDASOT301, 21.00, €12.50The ever-in-motion Amsterdam BeatClub rev up OT301 with an evening of vintage garage rock ‘n’ roll, beach-blanket-bong-out-surf twang and all things hip and beat. NYC’s legendary The Fleshtones headline with their brand of psych-garage rock, while local heroes The Anacondas put the sand back in your Mai Tai with tracks from, amongst others, their fantastic latest release Bad Buzz - Lost In The Space Age. To top it all off there’s the usual stellar BeatClub rogues and rascals spinning vintage wax and looping classic film until those all-too-familiar wee hours. (MB)

MONDAY 16 MAYMICAH P HINSONParadiso (Kleine Zaal), 19.00, €12.50 + membershipThe rough and ready sound of this Texan troubadour was revitalised with the release of his fourth album Micah P Hinson and the Pioneer Saboteurs. Inspired by Walt Whitman’s 1900 poem ‘Pioneers! O Pioneers!’, it’s a classic bout of gothic Americana, filled with blood, guts, tears, torture and mourning; its twanging riffs and Hinson’s raw voice – at times recalling Johnny Cash – are paired up with a soothing chamber choir. Moreover, Hinson cuts a charismatic figure on stage, which makes him just one of these guys you can’t take your eyes off. (SM)

BLACK LIPSDe Verdieping (Trouw), 20.30, €15While the teenage angst antics might have waned a little over the past few years, the full-on 1960s garage-nugget-punk energy continues to thrive in the Black Lips. Live, this self-proclaimed ‘flower-punk’ band from Atlanta, Georgia delivers the sweaty goods and more. Their unbound energy and obvious love of music quite literally drip from every pore and out onto their adoring public. It’s barely contained chaos delivered with care. And, who knows, maybe – just maybe – the nudity or chicken or fireworks or flaming guitars or vomit might just make an appearance again. Not that they’re needed anymore. (MB)

WEDNESDAY 18 MAYEMERALDS / SKELETONSOT301, 21.00, €10Cleveland trio Emeralds are criminally young. Sure, they’re beyond their teens, but the underground music they’ve become renowned for comes across like a bunch of beardy guys who’ve been immersing themselves in analogue synths and studio technology for a couple of dec-ades already. Go back five years and they were just kids crawling around on beer-stained floors, punching pedals as their unwashed hair ob-scured their faces. These days, they’ve evolved into refined masters of arpeggio: John Elliott and Steve Hauschildt working the synths and sequencers, with experimental guitarist Mark McGuire looping, delaying and interweaving tex-tured riffs. Their most recent album, Does It Look Like I’m Here?, is spectacular (and you can even make great ringtones from it), yet it doesn’t quite represent the sheer noise and expression of the live show. They’re paired up with Skeletons, a full-on tribal indie guitar blast. From grooving pop to jazz freak-outs, Skeletons put out it all out there on stage and were one of the highlights of the Subbacultcha! anniversary show back in 2009. They’re currently swinging back around to show off new album People. (SM)

BILL CALLAHAN / JULIANNA BARWICKDe Duif, 19.30, €15

It’s been a joy to follow the progression of Bill Callahan’s career from lo-fi songsmith as (Smog) to the distinctly proud craftsman heard on his recent solo albums, Apocalypse and Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle. His rich, distinctive voice alternates between warmth and forebod-ing, which is particularly enchanting in a live setting. In fact, his last appearance in Paradiso, on a boiling hot summer’s day, was just so genuine that it was one of the shows of the year.

Special guest of Callahan is Sophia Knapp, the young vocalist from the band Lights. But more intriguing is co-headliner Julianna Barwick, a captivating songwriter and vocalist whose songs ebb and flow with her looping sung harmonies and minimal accompaniment. Her latest album, The Magic Place, is even more atmospheric and intimate than her previous works, feeling nearly choral at times, so it may sound almost liturgical in today’s setting. (SM)

THURSDAY 19 MAYTHE MEAT PUPPETSSugar Factory, 20.00, €15 + membership

Okay, so most of us younger ones still think of that legendary Nirvana Unplugged perfor-mance whenever this Arizona band’s name is mentioned, but let’s not forget the legacy of their frantic cowpunk live shows of the early ’80s, as well as the wealth of new material that they’ve released in recent years. The reformed outfit have continued to evolve musically from their thrashing hardcore roots to psychedelic country and now play a more mellow blend of gentle country and folky ballads, as heard on latest album Lollipop. The beauty of a band with a 30-year career and deep discography, of course, is that you never quite know what to expect in a live setting. There just might be some noisy fuzz amongst the folk. (AS)

bouncing off the walls in anticipation of this new sound, when up you jump, alone, microphone in hand and hit them – full force – with your machine-gun, staccato poetry. Yup, poetry. ‘The Bard of Salford’ has been there and done it all throughout his 40 (-plus)-year career, spinning tales of urban disaffection laced with equal doses of Northern anger, humour and wit. While today, the vitriol might be distilled through time’s rose-tinted glasses, it’s certainly lost none of its urgency or relevance. (MB)

GANG GANG DANCEMelkweg (Oude Zaal), 20.30, €15 + membership

This Brooklyn-based electronic-ethno-experi-mental tribe is back and they’re as trippy and vibrant as ever. Their fifth release Eye Contact just emerged on 9 May. It opens with ‘Glass Jar’, an eleven-minute electro jam interspersed with spoken word; its melodies and percussion evolv-ing throughout. The album’s trip continues with each track seeming to melt into the next. It’s like a kaleidoscopic dream or 3D sound collages, engulfing everything from dub and psych rock to R&B and Bhangra beats. ‘We don’t go into the rehearsal room with particular ideas,’ explains keyboardist Brian Degraw. ‘We can only write songs by improvising. But we do divide ideas into structured contexts.’ When things begin to feel right, they acknowledge the groove with eye contact and prepare to recreate the moment. ‘But that’s not why we named the album Eye Contact. We only realised the importance of that afterwards,’ he laughs. The same goes for their trance-like stage show. ‘I write a set list, but in between the songs it’s anything goes,’ says singer Lizzie Bougatsos. ‘I draw what the movement of the improvisation should be like. For example, birds can mean the end of the song should turn into an airy breakdown.’ Talk about free-spirited hipsters. (LS)

AZARI & III Paradiso (Kleine Zaal), 22.00, €12 + membershipHere’s the deal: We love Dan Snaith and Caribou. We’ve been following his melodic indie and electronica since the Manitoba days. But as the success of Swim proved last year, we’re all already in the know, so it doesn’t seem prudent to rehash old dance news. On the flipside, these glo-fi-friendly party gurus from Toronto are extra fresh and only on the way up. Obsessed by dance pop of the early ’90s (remember an era when Technotronic ruled European airwaves?), house beats and disco grooves are at the heart of this reincarnation, but it’s heavily melodic and broader than pure dancefloor filler. With a debut album set for a summer release they seem certain to break out of the clubs. (SM)

SUNDAY 22 MAYSAM AMIDON / PERFUME GENIUSParadiso, 16.00, €17.50 + membership

Perfect for a suitably peaceful comedown follow-ing the chaos of the London Calling weekender. Besides, what these two guys lack in volume is fully made up for in charm. For example, 27-year-old singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas, AKA Perfume Genius, is all about the raw emo-tions of folk. His voice crackles and his songs are intimate and uncluttered works, loaded with unsuspecting melodic hooks. Then there’s Sam Amidon, an American folk singer who puts less of himself in his lyrics – but only because he’s a folk singer in the truest sense, putting his own stamp on traditional pieces that range from mur-der ballads to bluegrass. The young performer has plenty of character to pull it off at least – his live shows embrace anything from interpretative breakdance and stand-up comedy to free jazz pastiche. Goofy moments aside, he treats the music with utter respect. (SM)

TUESDAY 24 MAYTHE WALKMENMelkweg (Oude Zaal), 19.30, €15 + membershipWhile you can definitely hear The Walkmen’s influence in some of the most successful American rock bands of the day (think Vampire Weekend, The Strokes and The National), the dapper New Yorkers have never really achieved the same recognition – or sold as many records – as some of their counterparts. But since when has that ever been a sign of artistic quality? After a decade of making music together and being a perennial support act for the likes of Kings Of Leon and Interpol, The Walkmen seem to have got to a stage where they’re content to continue making well-crafted albums for their own satisfaction, rather than fold under the pres-sure of pleasing wider audiences. As frontman Hamilton Leithauser growled at the beginning of last year’s LP Lisbon: ‘If you don’t want me you can tell me/I’m the bigger man now/I know it’s true.’ Amen to that. (AS)

WEDNESDAY 25 MAYONEOHTRIX POINT NEVERParadiso (Kleine Zaal), 22.00, €9 + membershipBack in the realm of ‘weird as shit’ sounds, Daniel Lopatin (but you can call him Mr Never) has been prominent on the radar of Wire/Boomkat followers for a good few years already, his reputation growing with every release. But it was 2009’s spatial synth landscape Rifts that really started to mark him as at the vanguard of 21st-century composition, its songs taking inspiration from anything from sci-fi and cosmo-nautics to organic ambience. Then along came Returnal last year, spitting out such a violent cacophony in its first few minutes that it seemed Lopatin had woken up on the wrong side of the bed, determined to shake any listenable notes. Yet this album also eventually melted back down into layers of liquid synthesizers, overlapping harmonies, implied beats and bouts of confused percussion. It really was a contender for album of the year, too. At times it almost threatens to evolve into Fever Ray pop before oozing back into a pool of utter abstraction. (SM)

filmNOTABLE NEW RELEASESFROM 12 MAYAMERLet me just make something clear about Amer: it’s not a homage, spoof, rip-off, or even a tribute to giallo, the Italian thriller genre that scared and titillated moviegoers in dark screening rooms back in the ‘70s. Amer represents the next evolutionary step of giallo, crossbred with experimental cinema, and the result is visually orgasmic. It’s more immersive than the fanciest 3D movie, charged with more sexual tension than any skin flick, and boasts some of the finest cinematography ever seen by mortal eyes – yes, it really is that good. Its plot is a triptych showing three phases of a woman’s life, from child to teenager to adult, with sex and death all twisted and tangled up together. By using a mesmerising blend of giallo aesthet-ics, such as point-of-view shots of the unknown killer, or colour filters that give entire scenes an eerie red hue, with extremely rapid edits that are straight out of experimental cinema, direc-tors Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani have cre-ated an honest-to-goodness work of art. And to add to all this giallo magnificence, until 15 May, Melkweg Cinema will introduce screenings of Amer with the directors’ own short studies into the genre. (In French with Dutch subtitles) (LvH)

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUNHobo with a Shotgun is a gleefully demented, intentionally bad film, which is actually rather entertaining if enjoyed as a guilty pleasure. It has the exact look and feel of an ’80s video nasty that you’d pick up at the video store – one with a sticky, grimy cover and an image on the front that wouldn’t look out of place on a faded heavy metal t-shirt. Taking technol-ogy from 2011 and making a film that looks like it was made in the dirty ’80s is a pretty neat trick. And if you’re a fan of Troma-esque gory flicks that are way over the top, you’re in for a treat. Course, ol’ Rutger Hauer was in town to receive the plaudits at the Imagine Film Festival recently, but now it goes on general release. (LvH)

TROLL HUNTERA group of Norwegian film students begin mak-ing a documentary about illegal bear shootings when they inadvertently discover a hunter behav-ing mysteriously. Tracking him through fields in the darkness, they soon learn that he’s after more than grizzlies when a mythical troll attacks them. It transpires that the Norwegian govern-ment has covered up the existence of trolls, which roam the countryside at night, chewing on rocks and dicing up sheep – though nothing gets their goat quite like the smell of Christian blood. It’s a ludicrous plot but terrific fun nonetheless. (In Norwegian with Dutch subtitles) (SM)

MADE IN DAGENHAM

A warm-hearted British story, dramatising events of the Ford factory sewing machinists strike of 1968, aimed at bringing equal pay to women. Despite a historic environment of poverty and economic strife, Nigel Cole’s film bubbles away gently, fitting neatly alongside his Britcom legacy of Calendar Girls – although its German title, We Want Sex, would suggest otherwise. Sally Hawk-ins, Miranda Richardson and Bob Hoskins star.

FROM 19 MAYWELCOME TO THE RILEYSA husband and wife still grieving their long-dead daughter are unable to communicate with each other. She hasn’t left the house in years and he sulks alone in the shed. On a business trip to New Orleans he meets a teen stripper, and rather than trying to sex her up, he decides to move in with her and try to be the parental figure she never had. The wife then decides to brave the great outdoors, roadtrippin’ from Indianapolis to NOLA, obviously getting quite a surprise when she learns her husband is shacked up with a broken

teen. Twilight’s Kristen Stewart is determined to broaden her career with quirky indie numbers like this, but she’s by far the weak link here. James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo at least fair better with softer performances in this unlikely plot – but hey, an unlikely plot is just about forgivable in the world of quirky indie numbers. (SM)

SPECIAL SCREENINGSONE FIRE IGNITES ANOTHERSATURDAY 14 MAYRialto, 16.00Documentary about the legendary club that intro-duced house music, ecstasy and creative clubbing to the Netherlands. The RoXY was founded in 1987 by artist Peter Giele, DJ Eddy de Clercq and Arjan Schrama of Vinyl magazine fame, quickly becoming an internationally acclaimed hotbed of artists, writers and professional partygoers. Director Stacy Lee and producer Eline Bakker will be interviewed after the screening. (LvH)

CITY LIGHTSSUNDAY 22 MAYTuschinski, 10.30Tuschinski’s ongoing celebrations of its 90th an-niversary continue with Charlie Chaplin’s sublime 1931 silent, about a tramp that falls in love with a blind flower girl. Eighty years on, this remains a beautiful romantic comedy filled with typical slapstick and genuine screen emotion. Its poign-ant ending alone sets it apart as one of Chaplin’s finest accomplishments.

KITTEN SOUPTUESDAY 24 MAYOT301, 20.30This animated short film initiative boasts not only an awesome title that references the mind-rupturing Japanese short Cat Soup, but is bolstered by a track record of screenings in Serbia. Its first Amsterdam night, which featured work from animation luminaries such as Bill Plympton and Chris Ware, already attracted a sizeable crowd, so it might be wise to come early if you want to be sure of a seat.

KULTER’S COMING UP ROSES IN BOS EN LOMMER

In the words of the eternal bard: ‘If you build it, they will come.’ This is certainly proving to be the case in Bos en Lommer, where the artist-run

space Kulter has made a home for itself. Two years ago, at the close of an exhibition in a small gallery on Kinkerstraat, artist and Kulter co-founder Julie Dassaud and her cohorts organised an event with wine tasting and live music. A good crowd showed up, and it struck the organisers that the gathered audience were taking in much more of the works on display because they felt comfortable in the space. As fortune had it, they then got the chance to take over the gallery and so began Kulter. ‘We just put a sign up in the window stating “proeflokaal (tasting room) for artists and public”, and off we went,’ says Dassaud.

Upon closure of their Kinkerstraat location, Kulter made its way further out West to the residential Sanderijnstraat. Here it functions as both an intimate gallery space, specialising in bridging art, perfor-mance, music and words, and also as a collective that organises events in collaboration with other artist-run initiatives. Where it succeeds best is in the creation of a homely atmosphere. The artists and public can informally discuss the art while sharing a drink and a

meal and enjoying contemporary, global performanc-es. Dassaud explains the inspiration: ‘Noticing that the public were interested in the processes of artistic collaboration led the artists to reflect on each other’s differing disciplines and approaches. So we decided to organise a series of exhibitions to highlight the interactions between artists and public.’

Dassaud feels the next event, ‘Palatti in Kulter’, fits the proeflokaal’s mandate perfectly. ‘Palatti is a nomadic collective of artists who organise exhibitions and residencies around the world,’ she says. ‘They gather once a year to make site-specific works and this year’s event will be in Bos en Lommer.’ Featured will be drawings from Audrey Bakx, wall paintings and comics from Anna Bas Backer, collage and photography from Betty Ras, and installations and drawings from Gerardo Gómez Tonda and Sara Pape García. Last year, these artists made a site-specific project for Art Pie’s first edition in Istanbul – inspired by byzantine patterns, fish markets, carpets, new sounds and cultural habits. At Kulter, works from the Istanbul fair will be presented alongside new crea-tions, and on the exhibition’s opening day, they will host a ‘black market’, where the artists will part with their handmade objects for a small price or a trade.

Palatti in Kulter opens 14 May, 19.00 and runs until 22 May. Kulter, Sanderijnstraat 21
