about

For the occasion of Cassette Store day 2015, Kitchen Leg Records presents the double cassette compilation
“Mangold!”.
“Mangold!” features 18 different artists from Berlin and beyond covering songs from Brabrabra's debut cassette “Mango”, which was also Kitchen Leg's first release back in December 2013.
Despite their minimal and often lo-fi sound and attitude, Brabrabra made true pop music, and played very catchy songs, winning over audiences in Berlin and even found their way into Everett True's column.
After Berlin based band Classic Muscle began covering some of Brabrabra's songs live we jokingly came up with the idea of making a tribute album. However after mentioning the idea out loud we realized that it seemed to attract quite a bit of interest from musician friends and bands we know and the joke slowly became an
emerging reality. In fact the response was so enthusiastic that we ended up with roughly 3 times the amount of songs than the
original album contained.
“Mangold!” is an eclectic mix of pop/electro/home recorded/folk-blues and other genuine oddities.
Participating artists include Skiing, The History of Colour TV, Delmore FX and Razor Cunts to name just a few.
The cover itself is a photo of the original “Mango”' cover artwork as a work in progress. It is symbolic of the way we work and how we view our label as something we build upon day to day. To quote Bruce Lee, like the water that erodes the rock!

Track Name: Mumbles - Tropical Sensation
About Mumbles: "you don't have to be able to play an instrument or be a musical person, just come by regularly" that was the initial slogan to start our band, since we knew many people who wanted to give it a try and somehow didn't. Mumbles were born out of a desperate need to do anyhow music-making.After a couple band-transformations we had a pile of pretty unique songs, blending our dewy-eyed ambitions and unspoiled skills with a good portion of fuckoff-punkish attitude.
We are the mumbles. We like making noise, pom-poms, cakes, dance, scream and shout.
Their debut cassette "Geese my eyes" will be release by Kitchen Leg rec on Mai 24.

Track Name: Concierge - Sorèl
Concierge is a musician, audio technician, sound designer and vegan chef living in Berlin. Always surrounded by computers and instruments, he developed his sound art as a personal statement to the broken world we live in.
His music is carefully arranged with nervous hand crafted beats which tenuously hold the rhythm together while chilling, eerie and brooding synths pulse and flow around them. What first sounds like a random smattering of noises soon coalesces into infectious beats with bass to fill the dancefloor. Concierge plays guitar in Ruins of Krüger.

Track Name: Ruins of Krüger - Passport
Ruins of Krüger is a Berlin’s nowave-bleachfunk-psyche-truly unclassificable band;one of the most fiesty and interesting bands in town (and not only).

While creeping over humans waste, they transtroys elements into resonances of wrongness punk-trance and outrageous pop. Crystallized bombs or floating spheres they catapult into the chamber. With ordinary weapons the Krügers creats an atmosphere of ruinatic fun like pearl divers. You get thrown into a psychodelic abyss with no escape. Broken errors climbing clean walls until your awake. Ruins of Krüger is a sound-organism, which incorporates all its experiences in art-improvisation-performance-cooking. With several concerts on this earth they isolated an atomic rattle to keep you alive. Expect nothing, get everything, darling!

Track Name: The History Of Colour TV - Passport
Starting out as a conceptual audio-visual project, The History Of Colour TV was created by Jaike Stambach in early 2010. After relocating to Berlin and releasing a string of cassette-only experimental EPs and videos, the project soon evolved into a full band line-up. The music underwent a slow but radical change, gradually incorporating dark, dreamy pop and abrasive electronic soundscapes, with a focus more solidly anchored in the song format. The first manifestation of this came as the Colour TV EP in 2011, and the band went on to explore this sound and style on their two first albums, released respectively in 2013 and 2014 on Saint Marie Records. With a noticable return to more abrasive tones, the release in early 2015 of the Sure enough. EP on Cranes Records hints at what might to be expected from the band in the future.
