Bittereinder has officialy released a brand new music video by for their song,KLANKANATOMIE. Klankanatomie is from their third full length album, SKERM, released in October 2014. The band decided to make a video for Klankanatomie seeing that without any concerted effort from them, the song seems to have generated the most love from listeners - from the guy who proofreads their lyrics to their distribution company to their friends and people at shows - everyone is loving the s
Bittereinder het vanaf dag een vasgestel dat hulle enig in hul soort is en keer op keer luisteraars op hulle tone gaan hou. Album nommer drie deur hierdie dinamiese trio bly trou aan daardie wen resep. Hulle het na 5 jaar nou al deeglik bewys hulle besit oor die vermoë om enige stigma rondom Afrikaanse rap musiek by die venster uit te gooi, dus met hierdie album het hulle skaamteloos hulde gebring aan hulle voorliefde vir engels. Dit bly yl gesaai maar dit het hulle nou die
The future of live music certainly lies with smaller concept shows artists from all spectrums are forced to challenge them selves and deliver one of a kind performances to keep audiences interested. Dowe Digters has created such a platform and once a month artists, poets, musicians and audience members all merge onto one stage to explore poetry and music and allow these paths to cross. Railways Café in Irene is a picturesque setting for this event with it’s thrift store chic
Mieliepop is undoubtedly hosted on one of the most spectacular festival grounds in the country and this is the big reason I continue going back year after year. It’s the rolling green hills split apart by a tranquil river that sets it’s apart from the rest. You are almost guaranteed warm days with blue skies as far as the eye can see. But don’t be fooled by that spring in the air feeling because come night time you will soon be breaking off icicles from your nose and looking
BITTEREINDER has officially launched their third studio album offering - SKERM. The album comes after the release of its title track and video as first single in September.
“As an album, SKERM is more melody-driven than anything we've done before, loaded with singalong choruses and harmonies.”
SKERM was written over the last eighteen months, with a concentrated stint since April 2014. It was recorded and mixed at Sleeproom Studios in Pretoria by Peach van Pletzen, and mast

Chances are fairly good that you are reading these words on a screen. Screens hide, disguise and reveal. They peer back at us. They cast light, they spread darkness. BITTEREINDER's new single is the title track of the band's third studio album: SKERM. The new video itself exists on and in and thanks to screens - Louis Minnaar has created a golden sci-fi electro universe which bonses every bit as hard as the new tracks. "Skerm maak my wakker. Skerm 9-to-5. Skerm in die aande.
When you are an avid festival goer like I am, one gets spoiled by smaller more intimate festivals where it’s easy to get comfortable, the line-up is limited and there is plenty time to rest. And once a year comes the beast that is Oppikoppi and it swallows you whole and spits you back out with a bad case of black lung to boot. So it is easy to understand why I prefer the white beaches of STRAB to the red dust of Northam. Little did I know I was in for the biggest treat imagin
The local line-up at OppiKoppi is a pretty good mix of big name bands and yet to be discovered smaller tallents. But there are some of the headliners that I am particularly amped to see. Here is why... WONDERBOOM Thursday 00:00 James Philips Stage Wonderboom is simply one of those legendary bands that I cannot get enough of. In the recent past I have only been able to se them on small stages at festivals or even smaller gigs in town but this time around I know we are in for s
