Following last year’s Wildlife album, Berlin’s real queen of electronic music Gudrun Gut is set to drop a brand new 7″ via her own label Monika Entreprise.
You can listen to the A-side above with our exclusive premiere of Gut’s beautiful cover version of Canned Heat’s classic “Goin’ Up The Country“. Here, Gut takes the blues-rock hit to some sort of neo-punk level, but flavored with a good dose of Neue Deutsche Welle and smart electronics. The 7″ B-side contains a classy Brandt Brauer Frick-remix of Gudrun’s track “Tiger” (the original appeared on Wildlife), and the digital version features an extra track—Thomas Fehlmann‘s rework of “Going up the Country”. The whole thing is available either digitally or physically from August 30th.
Gudrun Gut’s Going up the Country / Tiger 7″ Single is out via Monika Entreprise on August, 30th.

Right in the midst of the debate about copyright trade agreements ACTA and SOPA pops NYC filmmaker Kirby Ferguson‘s fourth and final part of his documentary series Everything is a Remix. Following up on his remix examinations on the movies ‘Kill Bill’ and ‘The Matrix’ as well as three prior Everything is a remix-clips (watch below), Ferguson now examines the new battles on the fields of software and smartphones, and sample & patent trolling.
Based on the idea of social evolution, Ferguson describes how copyright and patenting were intented to help grow a huge archive of ideas in public domain, and how they’re now being used to increase corporate profits. “Our system of law doesn’t acknowledge the derivative nature of creativity. Instead, ideas are regarded as property, as unique and original lots with distinct boundaries“, states Ferguson in the video statement.
Watch the ‘System Failure’ video below and head over to Kickstarter for more information on Kirby Ferguson’s planned and upcoming documentary This is Not a Conspiracy Theory.
