Alternativmusik puts “TCP” on their 2010-list

Alternativmusik wrote about Take Cair Paramour on their 2010 list. See the whole list here.

3. Ashbury Heights – Take Cair Paramour
Ein Besetzungswechsel ist immer so eine Sache, vor allem, wenn es gleich die Sängerin eines Projekts trifft. Ashbury Heights hat dieser Wechsel offensichtlich gut getan. Auf Take Cair Paramour rückt Anders Hagströms Gesang in den Vordergrund, und die Stücke gewinnen definitiv durch die melancholische Stimme. Die neue Sängerin, Kari Berg, macht ihre Sache allerdings ebenfalls sehr gut. Songs wie I Can Kill You So Easily werden erst durch den Kontrast zwischen melancholischer Männerstimme und ihrem glockenhellen Gesang zu Ohrwürmern. Je öfter man das Album hört, desto mehr Details kann man entdecken. Auch offenbaren sich die wahren Schätze oft erst nach mehrmaligem Zuhören.

Collaboration with Chaos All Stars

Kari Berg and Chaos All Stars release collaboration song at ElectriXmas-festival, November 18th.

Swedish electro-act Chaos All Stars now announce the collaboration with Kari Berg (former singer of Ashbury Heights) and have agreed on releasing a preview version of the song “We Are The Sinners“, exclusively to the visitors of ElectriXmas-festival in Malmö, Sweden, on November 18th.

Kari joins Chaos All Stars

Kari is happy to announce that she is now a member of the Swedish underground EBM-act “Chaos All Stars“.
Kari is no longer just a “featuring artist” with Chaos All Stars; she is now a fully fledged All Star! After working together as well as they did Kari and CAS decided that she was to join them as a new member.

Kari & CAS gig at Tech Noir

Kari and Chaos All Stars will perform at “Tech Noir” on November 5th. The theme for the night is Halloween, so to celebrate this special occasion Chaos All Stars will perform live with the most all stars on stage so far and the concert will be a unique performance featuring never before heard songs.

Chaos All Stars also talks about Kari’s collaboration:
It is an honour for Chaos All Stars to welcome vocalist and model Kari Berg on stage and this gig will be the first official performance of the song “We Are The Sinners” with Chaos All Stars feat Kari. Kari has been working on her solo project for some time now and on that journey our roads crossed, resulting in a creative and intense collaboration. The outcome is the collaboration “We Are The Sinners”, a duet with Nik and Kari about how the mainstream approach on the alternative expressions works. The song is to be released later on but everyone at Tech Noir on November 5th will get to hear it live first!

Ashbury Heights is no more

After the other part of the duo of Ashbury Heights made a public letter (unbeknown to Kari) with complaints on the label, genre and fans, Kari made a public letter about standing outside this argument. Read it here.

This also means that Ashbury Heights is no more and Kari will focus on other music projects.

Catwalk at UMEÅ Fashion Wknd 2010

Kari will be on the catwalk for “Naucler Design” at Umeå Fashion Wknd 2010 on October 23rd at the old Saga Theatre in Umeå, Sweden. Sophie Naucler will participate with her brand new “World of Tomorrow” collection. Later the same evening there will be another fashion show at “Cover Club“.
