PRESENTED BY PAULINE FREEMAN
Son of the Velvet Rat is the latest project of Austrian singer-songwriter Georg Altziebler (voc/guit) backed up by his partner Heike Binder on vocals and various little instruments.
Georg used to be in a band called "pure laine" they had some inroads in the US during the early 90ies with support from college radio stations leading to a feature on the then legendary MTV show 120minutes.
The music burns slowly, the sound is simple and stark. There is nothing more arresting than a single note echoing against the darkness.
His latest album "LOSS&LOVE" was recorded in Nashville with Wilco/Uncle Tupelo drummer Ken Coomer in charge of production.
Heartbreakingly beautiful, slow minimal folk.
Son of the velvet rat over the years supported acts like The Frames and Lambchop. They play tours around Germany, Central Europe and the US.
Their third album "Loss&Love" was a critics favourite with the German Rolling Stone and the single "Fall with me" became a local radio hit.
LOSS&LOVE; has been shortlisted for the Amadeus Award 2008 (the Austrian equivalent to the Mercury Award).
This April they will return to Nashville to begin work on the next record.
