MANDO DIAO - Open Air
46,30 € *
zzgl. 5,95 € Versand

Mando Diao - BANGPlaygroundSprung out of timeless rock´n´roll guitar riffs and a burning desire; magic has been made. Mando Diao have created an album that is dark, personal, energetic and captivatingly good. BANG is a record that demanded its own existence with the purpose to take on the topics of life?s unforeseeable twists and turns.Freedom has acted as an important source of inspiration for Mando Diao. - We want to inspire people to dare to be as free as they can possibly be. To aspire for freedom rather then being pulled into normative ways, the band says. This album is inspired by all things that are fierce and explosive. When a bombshell is dropped, there is no time for afterthought or hesitation. - No feelings were held back here, Says Björn Dixgård.The darkness present in the lyrics make this album an enticing and nerve tickling portrait of Mando Diao?s very being. The songs are limitless and nothing has stood in the way for the music.-We didn´t hide behind wooly thoughts or tentative descriptions. What we sing, we mean. There is something liberating in calling a spade a spade. The key word for BANG has been hedonism, a philosophical theory about putting freedom and pleasure at the forefront. - We keep carrying on and while illusions burst and the tribulations pile up the bigger our lust for simplicity has grown.The idea for the album came to life during late night parties and big festival appearances. - Sometimes when we?ve played these huge stages we have felt ?fuck, it´s a shame we don´t have more riffs?, so that Björn won´t have to sing his throat off, Jens Siverstedt says. In light of this Mando Diao started to build the songs and the riffs that has then dictated the vibe and tempo of the album. - It was like an epiphany, we are a guitar driven band, of course we should focus on the riffs, explains Jens. Björn adds - thereafter the sound took shape, some songs are on the blues end of the spectra while others are more classic Mando Diao.Parallel to the release of their 2017 album Good Times the band started working on the follow up. - Me and Björn literally started writing and recording new demos at the same time as the last album was released. We had so much energy, energy that transformed into BANG, says Jens. Today it has been a two year process resulting in ten explosive and highly intimate tracks. - This album and our first album, Bring em ? in, are our dirtiest albums, On this album we sound as we do on stage, Björn says.The band has come a long way since the debut back in 2002. With eight studio albums and over 1,5 million albums sold Mando Diao have been a force to be reckoned with. They have played more than 1500 shows in over 30 countries. The line up of the band has changed throughout the years and today Mando Diao consists of Björn Dixgård, Carl-Johan Fogelklou, Daniel Haglund, Jens Siverstedt and Patrik Heikinpieti.Before BANG is released October 18th we can look forward to three singles. One Last Fire, which also stands as the opening track on the album, will be premiered at Dalhalla where Mando Diao performs alongside The Hives and The Sounds on the 30th and 31st of August. - One Last Fire is about feeling the spark within you and deciding to ignite the fire rather then putting it out. Perhaps it´s a little bit about my fascination for Pyromania as well, Björn says laughingly.Single number two is the heavy and catchy Long Long Way. - We wrote it on the tour bus, which is a very unusual thing for us to do. It was during an after party on their way to the next city when they sat and sang together. - Well, I?d call it screaming, Says Björn.Before the release of the album we?ll be treated with one last single. Don´t Tell Me is a middle finger to the establishment Björn explains. - It?s about what I try to teach my kids. It?s important to respect other people but it is also important to not always have that blind kind of respect towards authorities. It?s a sort of red thread throughout our songs. Mando Diao goes their own way which is also demonstrated on Society, a song on the album that comments on today´s world. He Can?t Control You is about a bad relationship that one has managed to leave. - Most people have been in a destructive relationship at one point or another, be it a romance, friendship or part of a family. The amount of recognition in that will speak to a lot of our listeners, Björn says. Linnea Dixgård, sister of Björn came up with the chorus. She?s really talented and it would be a lot of fun if she would start making more music. It?s always nice when I get to work together with her.Get Free is the first Mando Diao song ever to be purely about freedom. Jens came up with the riff that gave birth to an up beat party song prompting us to get loose and let go. You?ll find courage at the very core of this song. I Was Blind treads the same path as it cries out in longing for an end to everything that just has to be done all the time in life. There is definitely a fear among Mando Diao when it comes to the dullness of everyday life. - Take care of your life and do whatever you feel like doing. Make sure to enjoy it, says Björn.BANG also contains a dash of romance. My Woman is a soft and sensual love song whereas Scream For You is more fierce and seductive. The common nominator is unconditional love, free from compromise.Bang Your Head is the ultimate party song, setting the tone for BANG. The song came at the last moment like a powerful dark horse and explains a lot about the bands constant hunt for an audience in motion during their tours. - It?s not that damn easy to be a human being and it?s really important to treasure those wild and beautiful moments, and I think this song in particular and the album overall sums that feeling up really well.Foto credits to Victor Flumé

Isadora: A Novel , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 648min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Using the scaffolding of Isadora Duncan's life and the stuff of her spirit, Amelia Gray delivers an incredibly imaginative portrait of the artist. In 1913 the restless world sat on the brink of unimaginable suffering. But for one woman, the darkness of a new era had already made itself at home. Isadora Duncan would come to be known as the mother of modern dance, but in the spring of 1913 she was a grieving mother after a freak accident in Paris resulted in the drowning deaths of her two young children. The accident cracked Isadora's life in two: on one side the brilliant young talent who captivated audiences the world over, on the other a heartbroken mother spinning dangerously on the edge of sanity. Isadora is a shocking and visceral portrait of an artist and woman drawn to the brink of destruction by the cruelty of life. In her breakout audiobook, Amelia Gray offers a relentless portrayal of a legendary artist churning through prewar Europe. Isadora seeks to obliterate the mannered portrait of a dancer and to introduce the listener to a woman who lived and loved without limits, even in the darkest days of her life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jen Tullock. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/aren/002534/bk_aren_002534_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Lady in Gold
20,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The spellbinding story, part fairy tale, part suspense, of Gustav Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, one of the most emblematic portraits of its time; of the beautiful, seductive Viennese Jewish salon hostess who sat for it; the notorious artist who painted it; the now vanished turn-of-the-century Vienna that shaped it; and the strange twisted fate that befell it. The Lady in Gold, considered an unforgettable masterpiece, one of the twentieth century's most recognizable paintings, made headlines all over the world when Ronald Lauder bought it for $135 million a century after Klimt, the most famous Austrian painter of his time, completed the society portrait. Anne-Marie O'Connor, writer for The Washington Post, formerly of the Los Angeles Times, tells the galvanizing story of the Lady in Gold, Adele Bloch-Bauer, a dazzling Viennese Jewish society figure; daughter of the head of one of the largest banks in the Hapsburg Empire, head of the Oriental Railway, whose Orient Express went from Berlin to Constantinople; wife of Ferdinand Bauer, sugar-beet baron. The Bloch-Bauers were art patrons, and Adele herself was considered a rebel of fin de siècle Vienna (she wanted to be educated, a notion considered "degenerate" in a society that believed women being out in the world went against their feminine "nature"). The author describes how Adele inspired the portrait and how Klimt made more than a hundred sketches of her-simple pencil drawings on thin manila paper. And O'Connor writes of Klimt himself, son of a failed gold engraver, shunned by arts bureaucrats, called an artistic heretic in his time, a genius in ours. She writes of the Nazis confiscating the portrait of Adele from the Bloch-Bauers' grand palais; of the Austrian government putting the painting on display, stripping Adele's Jewish surname from it so that no clues to her identity (nor any hint of her Jewish origins) would be revealed. Nazi officials called the painting, The Lady in Gold and proudly exhibited it in Vienna's Baroque Belvedere Palace, consecrated in the 1930s as a Nazi institution. The author writes of the painting, inspired by the Byzantine mosaics Klimt had studied in Italy, with their exotic symbols and swirls, the subject an idol in a golden shrine. We see how, sixty years after it was stolen by the Nazis, the Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer became the subject of a decade-long litigation between the Austrian government and the Bloch-Bauer heirs, how and why the U.S. Supreme Court became involved in the case, and how the Court's decision had profound ramifications in the art world. A riveting social history; an illuminating and haunting look at turn-of-the-century Vienna; a brilliant portrait of the evolution of a painter; a masterfully told tale of suspense. And at the heart of it, the Lady in Gold-the shimmering painting, and its equally irresistible subject, the fate of each forever intertwined.

Anders Zorn
44,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Accompanying a major retrospective of Anders Zorn's work, this is the first volume in English to explore the Swedish Impressionist's entire career in depth. Anders Zorn (1860-1920) is one of Sweden's most accomplished and beloved artists. Renowned for his light, expressive watercolors, he attained mastery of the genre at an early age and later applied his techniques to oil painting. Zorn is often compared with the artists John Singer Sargent and Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, contemporaries who also were known for their portraits of high-society figures. Taking up residence in London and then in Paris, Zorn established himself as an international portrait painter, depicting fashionable clients in a style both elegant and relaxed. He became a favorite among wealthy American collectors, bankers, and industrialists who sat for him, including art collector Isabella Stewart Gardner and three U.S. presidents. Although perhaps best known for his portraits, Zorn brought equal skill to painting genre scenes and views of nature. This handsome volume provides a thorough introduction to the artist and his works, from portraiture to landscapes and his famous nudes. Four illustrated essays are accompanied by a chronology, selected bibliography, an exhibition checklist, and an index.

Glorette Picard is dead. Her body was found in the alley behind a taqueria, half-hidden by wild tobacco trees, but no one—not Sidney, who knew she worked that alley, not her son Victor who memorizes SAT words to avoid the guys selling rock out of dryers in the Launderland, not her uncle Enrique, who everyone knows will be the one to hunt down her killer—saw her die. As the close-knit residents of Rio Seco, California react to Glorette’s murder, it becomes clear that her life and death are deeply entangled with the dark history of the city, and the untouchable beauty that, finally, killed her. Just as Faulkner spent years populating his fictional Yoknapatawpha County, Susan Straight has captivated readers with her rich portrait of Rio Seco in novels such as A Million Nightingales and Take One Candle Light a Room. Rio Seco is a town deep in the groves, heavy with the sweet tang of citrus and the smell from the old morgue; it’s a place some will never leave. In Between Heaven and Here, the final novel in her Rio Seco trilogy, Susan Straight tells a story of unforgettable intimacy and intensity. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Boehmer.
