Kristy and the Kraks
Kristy And The Kraks, affectionately known as the two-headed love child of Kate Kristal and Ana Threat, are wreaking havoc on the sensibilities of unsuspecting analog lovers, club kids, and vinyl freaks from Vienna to Chicago. Bristling with handfuls of vipers, ripped-out telephone cords, haywire guitar strings, strangulated utterances, and femme fatale crash & flash, KATK have elevated CAVE-GIRL garage anthems to a new level of sleek ULTRA TRASH AuGoGo.

Ivan Antunovic used to release under the moniker I/II, for Totally Wired and Half Releases. For quite a time now he is performing as Iv/An.
The songs on the current 7″ are in Croatian. It was Ivans premiere to record music in his mother tongue.
The EP is available digitally and on vinyl. you can purchase it here, on bandcamp.
Sidesteping the idea of musical genres, the young trio followed their unprejudiced way into making music.
How they found their name? Sabotage in french comes with a male pronoun, so the proper way would be Le Sabotage – but for the Band La Sabotage made even more sense: Female Sabotage!
Alte Sau from Hamburg are Rebecca Oehms, Raoul Doré & Jens Rachut.
„Melody Smash“ that’s what the 4-piece band Cry baby could call their output – a blend of punk, pop and tropical.
Cry Baby are Nicoletta Hernández, Agnes Aye, Marti Farti and Minki Mumu.
DUBAIS is the Arabfuturist, lo-fi, dark disco project of Nadia Buyse.
Nadia is a transdisciplinary international performance artist, cultural activist, and musician.
Using the tropes of Pop music, DUBAIS make conceptual critiques about displacement, Utopia, diaspora, and the post identity complex. She utilizes multimedia strategies like live and pre-taped video, digital composition, dance and movement, with an emphasis, or rather a particular fascination with, consumer products like cell phones and lo-fi recordings.
Lime Crush was formed in Vienna late 2013. the 4 piece has two singles out via Fettkakao, as well as a song contributed to the Totally Wired compilation 2015.
“Adorable mutant of Teen Beat, X-Ray Spex, Shonen Knife and Die Tödliche Doris with a youthful touch of green, yellow and fresh. Grab and sing your life!!” -Half Releases, Zagreb
“100 % wanker-free punk rock guaranteed“ - Viennese Burlesque artist Denice Bourbon.

Crazy Bitch in A Cave has released On Top – a maxi 12″ and and album called Particles on the viennese queer feminist label Comfortzone. he was – from the very begining – traveling to various festivals and showcases, art shows and parties to cities like Los Angeles, Berlin, New York and Steyr.

Tirana’s first appearnce was on the Fettkakao Sampler 2011 with her song Red Hills. Cordula Thym recorded it at the Rosa Lila Villa in Vienna. it was in a kind of a rush, as Veronika just came up with the idea to add a song to the Sampler as a solo artist. after the compilation was released people were wondering who the person behind Tirana could be – and we were keeping it like a secret.
