entertainment for the braindead is a berlin based one woman lofi orchestra.
since 2007 she has been writing and publishing songs, gathering guitars and banjos,
ukuleles, flutes and other little items to accompany her voice in fragile arrangements. when at home in her berlin headquarter, she crafts paper cutouts for CDs or bakes cookies to go along with the music. and every now and then she carries heavy bags full of gear and instruments through train stations and airports, lulling audiences in close-by living rooms as well as far off places such as bosphorus metropoles or californian deserts.

Postcards: "SEVEN MUSICAL POSTCARDS FROM DIFFERENT POINTS IN TIME AND SPACE. SOME HAVE BEEN WRITTEN FOUR YEARS AGO BUT ONLY MAILED THIS SUMMER. OTHERS HAVE BEEN SENT RIGHT FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD WHILE I WAS THERE. ALL OF THEM TELL LITTLE STORIES OF JOURNEYS AND EXPERIENCES, AND IF YOU PUT THEM TOGETHER IN THE RIGHT ORDER, MAYBE THEY WILL MAKE SOME SENSE TO YOU."
A Series of 7 EPs recorded between 2009 and 2013 in Cologne, Istanbul, Berlin and California. Released over the course of a few months as free downloads.
