Dr. Beaf A fun young German group making musically colourful soul-pop that's somehow a little indie too. The mastering is terrific with great balance between horns & wind, vocals (not a German accent to be heard) and overall dynamics. It may feel a little formulaic if one wants to be critical, but I'm having so much fun I'll be dancing until the break of dawn. Good work guys!

about

THE JOOLES from Berlin prove on their debut album MOVING MEMORIES, that pop doesn’t need genre classifications. It’s all about great melodies and grooves which wind into your memory to move both the heart and the body. Daria, Alex, Katharina and Richie mix the musical frame just as they like, without losing the golden thread. From the different personal influences rises a fresh sound, which timelessly defies every trend.

A larger part of their inspirations comes from the golden age in the 60s and the 70s, when pop music could be anything: Motown soul, beat, disco, garage rock or pop art psychedelia. But THE JOOLES are not just retro – their vibrant music works perfectly in the present. Above all there’s the bittersweet voice of Daria, reminiscent of singers like Nina Persson or Grace Slick, often accompanied by elaborated harmony vocals.

Since 2011 THE JOOLES have played numerous gigs in Germany and especially the UK, where they toured several times. Their debut album was produced in proper style with analoque equipment at the YEAH YEAH YEAH STUDIOS in Hamburg. Nearly every tone resonated originally within the studio walls, wafted by nordic calm and eternalised through old microphones and machines. (Acoustic memories were also set for the many supporters and companions – this album was also accomplished with the help of a fundraising campaign.) MOVING MEMORIES is not only an exciting trip through a musical heritage, but an archive full of the bands’ memories, including recordings from the road, the road that leads to MOVING MEMORIES.

MOVING MEMORIES was released on April 29, 2016 on WATERFALL RECORDS as CD, LP, download and stream.

Track Name: Rest of Me
You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me
You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me

Another Sunday call
Another tea and apple pie
Another cuddly toy
You always gave me with a smile

But not forever, oh nonono
Only for better, not for worse

You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me
You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me

Another fall, another loss
Another day you didn't call me up
Ever since I'm doing well
You are there and all your Sunday care

But not forever, oh no no no
The pie got bitter, now I know

You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me
You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me

You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me
You take the best of me, you take the best of me
But deny the rest of me
Track Name: Break of Dawn
The stars are fading in the light
Your glance is glowin', holdin' me tight
You caught my eyes, you caught my mind
Mmmmmh

When we got trapped down by the floor
I felt I never wanted more
Just you, just me
And the music for eternity

Give me all of you, I give you all of me
Let us feel the groove and
dance to the beat, yeah

Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn

When we met in the mirror ball
Reflections twistin' on the floor
Just you, just me
And the music for eternity

Give me all of you, I give you all of me
Let us feel the groove and dance to the beat
Spin around to the sound til the morning sun

Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn

Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy, we're havin' so much fun
Let's dance until the break of dawn
Boy we're havin' so, boy we're having so much
We're having so much fun
Let's feel the groove, we're having so much fun
(Break of dawn) Oh, the break of dawn
Oh boy, let's dance until the break of dawn
The break of dawn
