Golden Diskó Ship is Berlin-based musician Theresa
Stroetges who named her very personal artistic output (performed
live with video visuals) after a golden ship found forever
waiting for the party in the harbour of Reyjkavík.
She combines a mass of instruments and found objects (guitars,
viola, glockenspiel, sticky tape, compact disc cases, toys)
together with laptop electronica to form a world of beautiful,
original and individual music. "Dreamy, experimental
folk electronica that sounds like walking on the beach with
the sun in your eyes."

Songs written by Theresa Stroetges.
"The first demo of this project, 'Bumblebee Behind
A Tree', is already an impeccable work, which somehow expands
on the mix of the singer-songwriting and noisyness that Dutch
singer Solex introduced in the late 90's. With her bright
voice and her clearly acoustically based melodies Theresa
might on some level appeal to old fans of Suzanne Vega. But
at the same time her songs are dominated by so many backward
played effects, cut-up beats and other odd ideas, that she
manages to produce a particularly modern kind of freak folk.
The six tracks move from the totally acoustic and minimal
to the big frenetic cut-up of acoustic sounds ("You Blurry
Dream"). The best songs are the ones like the strumming,
but loud "Wake/Sleep", where the pattern in her
complex web of voices, samples and strange ideas gets its
time to settle. Here she is herself without any fixed ideas
about avantgardism or traditionalism. A fascinating presence
between chaos and poetry - if you can separate the two at
all. It makes one want to taste more of this - and luckily
more is already on the way!"
