Local Bands: Citrus Dude Inc.

Citrus Dude Inc. is born out of a bedroom, where two friends spent their evenings singing and improvising rhymes. The mix of hip-hop, funk, blues, soul and electronics from this duo based in Barcelona transmit nothing but good vibes.

Their music depicts the contrast in their personalities: the energy and wit of Quim’s verses harmonize with the intriguing rhytms that Mario produces. The’ve just dropped their first song “Azúcar de Cañaberal”. The video has been produced by El Bueno Films. This next 25th of May they will do their first concert in La Sexta Baja at Ville à Dômat Fest.

Future Islands step the far field

This Baltimore trio is made up of the deep-voiced Samuel T. Herring, bassist William Cashion and keyboardist and programmer Gerrit Whelmers. Future Islands got their start more than a decade ago, and made it big with their fourth album, ‘Singles’ (2014), which included their international hit ‘Seasons (Waiting on You)’. They’re back with a new effort, ‘The Far Field’ (2017), and more of their electro-pop full of romanticism that combines moments of light with moments of darkness and epic sounds. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.

The Jesus and Mary Chain’s comeback

The kings of shoegaze and post-punk in the ’80s, and possibly one of the best Scottish bands ever, The Jesus and Mary Chain kicked off their career in 1984 and broke up at the end of the ’90s, though they enjoyed a brief moment of glory in 2003 when their song ‘Just Like Honey’ was included in the soundtrack for ‘Lost in Translation’. Following a few solo disappointments, the Reid brothers got the band back together with Phil King, Brian Young and Mark Crozer to do the festival circuit, including Coachella, Primavera Sound and BBK Live. Their new album, ‘Damage and Joy’ will be played tonight in Barcelona at Razzmatazz.
