Mixtaping by Strangers – Vol 11 – ODD BEHOLDER

Erinnert ihr euch noch an Kassetten? Dieses hoffnungslos romantische analoge Format, das es einem im Handumdrehen ermöglichte der Liebsten, Freunden oder auch Verwandten nicht nur eine Freude zu machen, sondern gleichzeitig auch noch eine musikalische Lehrstunde zu geben, inklusive Coolness-Statement! Was war das schön! Wir huldigen nach wie vor dieser Leidenschaft und stellen euch mit unserer Mixtaping by Strangers-Reihe nicht nur tolle neue Künstler vor, die über ihre Mixtape-Vergangenheit und -Vorlieben berichten, nein, wir lassen sie auch extra für euch eine kleine Liste zusammen stellen, auf dass ihr schwelgt in für euch neuer Musik, musikalische Einflüsse entdeckt und die Leidenschaft zur Mixtape machen, weiter geht! Repeat & Rewind inklusive! Für Tape Vol 11 haben wir Daniela Weinmann vom schweizer Pop-Duo Odd Beholder an das digitale Tape Deck gebeten, das gerade mal wieder durch Deutschland tourt und deren neues Video zum Song Coins hier zu sehen ist!

Have you ever done a mixtape before? If yes – when was the first time and for which person? If not – why not and for which person would you do one?
The first person I did a mixtape for was my teenage best friend Monika Bolliger. We gave each other self burnt CDs and we spent a lot of time drawing the cover art. Today she happens to work as a journalist in the middle east – and playlists are still an important means of communication between us.

Which format would you prefer for your mixtape: Cassette, CD, digital playlist?
Playlists. We’re working all the time, oh man, you have no idea. The little time I am allowed to spend in the physical world I rather spend on friends, on cooking, on watering plants, on kissing, on strolling around town and on sleeping than on recording stuff on a magnetic band with a crappy old machine.

Insider tips that the listener won’t know or mainstream hits?
Neither. Songs that tell a story, songs that can speak for us.

Sad/emotional or dance/party songs?
Sad dance songs.

Listing songs one after the other or planning a tonal climax?

I’d like to think that my playlists have a wonderful dramaturgy. But in fact I just stutter around, the songs may correlate to certain things I feel, I feel a certain order, but I know from experience that the listeners usually find it chaotic and weird.

About the cover: self painted, a picture stolen from the internet or a simple set-list?
I actually do paint. But no cover art, never. I’d rather steal a picture from the internet, I mostly look for something odd and vague. But usually I am very particular about the title. I always try to find a perfect title for my playlists, it’s fun.

If you could choose an artist/band, who should do a mixtape for you – which one would it be and why?
The Knife. They have two superpowers which are hard to find within the same superhero: They write incredible pop hymns and investigate in weird experimental sound art. I imagine that their playlist would simultaneously grab your brain and your heart.
