Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom are more commonly known to the music-listening public as two-fifths of The Burning Hell. With their forthcoming debut as a duo, “Don’t Believe The Hyperreal”, they present to you a collection of songs more suited to intimate gatherings than the stadium stages and cruise ships on which they are accustomed to performing.

In the spirit of the great duet albums of the 1960s, Ariel Sharratt and Mathias Kom shine their wry warmth on the shadowy corners of love between human beings, the foibles and frustrations of flirtations, and the possibility that somewhere in this dark universe – for all of us – there is somebody to duet with.

The album “Don’t Believe The Hyperreal” will be released Nov.27th 2015 through BB*ISLAND for Europe and UK
and for Canada through Headless Owl


Berlin-based Susie Asado moves bare-boned and mischieviously in the sonic ether somewhere between the alternate realities of Tom Waits and Patti Smith. At the heart of the band is Josepha Conrad, who fills the silences in the minimalist arrangements of bass, ukulele, violin and clarinet with her wry, intelligent lyrics. Susie Asado brings levity to their darkness and depth to their playfulness, existing at the point where avant garde meets folk and poetry meets pop. Susie Asado’s new album “State of Undress” was released on the 21st of August 2015.
