About Luv Plastik:
Luv Plastik is an independant noise rock duo from England. Their music is a literal embodiment of ‘drum and bass’. Distorted, explosive and synthetic bass grooves are combined with classic 70’s drums. The common theme of the music is a vintage-voiced, gritty, dark-humored scream and a murmur. The band’s modern electronic sound and retro rock feel collide to differentiate Luv Plastik’s music from the Beijing underground music scene. Every live show is on the verge of bursting apart, and all of their energy is left on the stage. Over the last year, a lot of local media and magazines have quickly been drawn to this burgeoning new band, which has quickly ascended to the status of new intriguing act to emerge.
Loreli spoke with Luv Plastik on September 12th about playing as a two-piece, working with Ran Records, and half a story before sound check cut us off about Dan's brush with death. Spoiler alert: he lives.
About Remedios the Beauty:
Since 2010, Robin Koob has played with anumerous Beijing artists, like The Randy Abel Stable, Christmas, and the Harridans. She began performing original work as Remedios the Beauty in 2013, collaborating with singer/guitarist Nathan Borofka, combining folk and indie rock to create acoustic music that is simultaneously ethereal and attached to reality. After five years in China, Robin said goodbye to Beijing back in July, though Nathan still plays around town. Loreli caught up with Remedios the Beauty (and their biggest fan, Morgan) on the night of Robin's farewell concert.
