Music by Bergman: Ghostpoet

Dark Days + Canapés’ is Ghostpoet‘s most defining album to date. A stunning and stimulating return, ‘Dark Days + Canapés’ is a record that captures the sense of unease felt by so many in recent times.

After receiving recognition for the beat-driven arrangements of his first two albums, third album ‘Shedding Skin’ initiated a more alt-rock sound that saw Ghostpoet Mercury nominated for a second time. New album ‘Dark Days + Canapés’, produced by Leo Abrahams, best known for his work with Brian Eno and Jon Hopkins, delves even further into a fuller, guitar driven sound.

Local Bands: Polseguera

El mallorquí resident a Ciutat Vella Tomeu Mulet és un obrer del rock. Baixista i cantant de Beach Beach i membre de projectes extingits com Kana Kapila o Der Ventilator, enceta nova banda amb dos sospitosos habituals de l’escena de la ciutat: Verónica Alonso (Me and the Bees) i Sergi Egea (un dels fundadors del segell vigatà Famèlic). Abracen un postpunk agressiu en català i modelat per l’escola britànica d’Ian McCulloch (Echo & the Bunnymen). Després d’haver-se passat un any voltant per escenaris de tot el país, ja estan llestos per a l’examen discogràfic, que podrem escoltar les setmanes vinents amb una edició de 100 còpies en format casset. Portarà per nom ‘Sa mata escrita’.

Hit of the week: Nick Mulvey ‘Unconditional’

Music by Bergman: Sinkane

British artist Ahmed Gallab of Sudanese origins knows very well that in the beginning there was rhythm, something to which he applies with great dedication in his double life as Sinkane, a vibrant project of electronic music mixed with delectable funk, jazz, krautrock and Sudanese pop that caught the attention of DFA, the influential New York label captained by James Murphy that released his latest two records. Conceived as a true dialogue between cultures and traditions and with a sound that is furiously contemporary,  “Life & Livin’ It”, is their new album.

Best Covers: Los Coming Soon ‘Let’s Dance’

Lala y Patricio, los hermanos que lideran esta banda argentina ahora residente en Barcelona. Pese a llevar 7 años de carrera es ahora cuando sacan su primer disco con un título de lo más significativo We Are Los Coming Soon. Con este trabajo quieren mostrar la esencia del grupo en un disco compacto.  David Bowie es una clara influencia en su trabajo, donde versionan el tema Let’s Dance del artista británico y esa misma canción da nombre a su tour.
