Single Spotlight: Bandicoot - Waiting On. So smooth, so funky, so charmingly nonchalant ...




Back when carpe carmina celebrated its 4th anniversary, the four gentlemen of We are Bandicoot took time to send personalized birthday wishes our way which infused us with yet another pinch of enthusiasm for the sun-kissed and groove-enthused surf-latin vibes, for the keen passion and glowing confidence their music entails.

Gig review: Witten (DE). March 28th. A cozy evening with Charlotte Carpenter and chocolate shakes





There is nothing quite as enthralling (and eye-opening in terms of how naturally talented and candid the artist behind the music you enjoy is) than hearing a song live for the very first time after spending hours singing blissfully (or fervently even) along to it at home, while it plays in the background, on the radio, on the record player, in a commercial on TV ... and despite having fond memories bound to the song already which spring whenever that one lyric is sung, that one note is struck, that one bridge gets going, you are finally out to make new ones, even more vivid and haunting as you are now provided with both audio and the right visuals to match.
