Andi Dvorak runs Viennese label Fettkakao which is an absolute gold mine of interesting leftfield music from Austria.
First discovery is Plaided, a duo Veronika and Julia whose first album Playdate is just out. The pair got to know each other through organising Ladyfest Vienna in 2005, they say that all the motivated people in that DIY community inspired them to start a band of their own. Absolutely summing up the spirit of Ladyfest!
The resulting debut album is an absolute joy. Singing mostly in harmony creating a quirky choral effect, then diving in with grungey indie guitar and drums. TOW cannot wait to see this band live.
