«New Berlin was conceived as a minimalist recording project in South Texas. The first live performances were as a one-man band employing the use of drum machines, looping effects, guitar, and vocals. Over the course of 2015, various line-ups of musicians began to form around the songs and perform live. The rotating cast eventually solidified into a three piece consisting of Michael Flanagan on guitar and vocals, Gustavo Martinez on bass, and Andrew Richardson on drums. This line-up toured around the United States twice, supporting two different 7” singles that were released through Austin’s Super Secret Records. In between tours, the group produced recordings at Sound of Rain in Edinburg, TX. These recordings would be released on the B-side of an album titled “Basic Function”. The A-side contains recordings made in 2015 before the band had come together. Released through Super Secret Records in the USA and Erste Theke Tontrager in Europe, “Basic Function” presents a history of New Berlin, from its beginnings as a living room recording experiment to its first attempts at working in a studio, and finally as a full-fledged band, road worn by performing around the United States. New Berlin toured the USA again in the Summer of 2017, this time with Sebastian Garcia behind the drum set. A new record will be released through Italy’s Goodbye Boozy Records, and the band will embark on a two-week tour through Europe in May 2018 to support it.»
