SLOW TRAVEL BERLIN
Nite Jewel, Lucrecia Dalt, Gudrun Gut, Kantine am Berghain, 9pm
Berghain is, without a doubt, the place to go for the quintessential electronic music experience in Berlin, so it makes sense that electro acts with more of an indie edge are lovingly relegated directly next door to younger sibling Kantine am Berghain. And this coming Friday, artists Nite Jewel, Lucrecia Dalt, and Gudrun Gut join forces in a night that gives nod to beat-savvy female members of Berlin’s genre mascot.
Nite Jewel got her start recording songs on a handheld eight-track recorder, which paved the way for the lo-fi L.A. crooner to embark into more experimental territories. And on her newest album, this year’s “One Second of Love,” the self-described “liquid cool” singer combines a light and lofty voice with tight beats for a refreshing, bordering-on-delicate, aural treat.
She is supported by Spanish ambient singer-songwriter, Lucrecia Dalt, whose newest album, “Commotus,” was released earlier this summer. A geotechnics specialist, Dalt crafts her knowledge on the subject into songs that, like the land, are tinged with bits and pieces of electronic and indie-folk influences, but never settle on one particular place.
Finally, at the helm of the ones and twos is German legend Gudrun Gut, a Berlin-based artist, former punk legend, and recent-day pioneer of the minimal glitch-pop scene. Natalye Childress
