Canadian band Half Moon Run bring their epic folk to town to wow fans and newcomers alike with their intense melodies that bring to mind the style of Arcade Fire or Mumford and Sons. They present their third album, ‘A Blemish in the Great Light’ (2019), and you’re sure to hear other great tracks from their debut album, ‘Dark Eyes’ (2012) as well as their sophomore effort, ‘Sun Leads Me On’ (2015). Today in concert at La Nau.
Prolific singer-songwriter (Sandy) Alex G, formerly known simply as Alex G, has built a dedicated following over the past few years through a steady output of washed-out indie odes, gently demented psych musings and, most recently, twangy roots rock. His last record is called House of Sugar and he will play it tonight at Razzmatazz.
Montreal singer-songwriter and pianist Patrick Watson returns to Barcelona seven years after his last visit to present his sixth album, ‘Wave’ (2019). Watson, who has been compared to Jeff Buckley, Devendra Banhard, Andrew Bird or M. Ward, became known after participating in The Cinematic Orchestra’s ‘Ma fleur’ (2007), including his song plus popular, ‘To build a home’. Tonight in concert at Sala Apolo.
Venezuelan-American artist Devendra Banhart conquers hearts wherever he goes with his magical compositions and his charming trembling voice. This year he has presented his tenth album, “Ma” (Warner, 2019), in which he has the collaborations of Cate Le Bon and Vashti Bunyan. Filled with lush melodies and surprising string arrangements, Banhart – who is approaching his forties – deals with the death of parents and mentors and gives life lessons to the son he probably won’t end up having. Cruïlla Primavera presents him tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
The British band Ride, formed in the late 80s by Andy Bell and Mark Gardener, is considered a pioneer of the ‘shoegaze’ sound. Their first stage lasted only until 1996, but they had time to publish such emblematic albums as their debut, ‘Nowhere’ (1990) and their continuation ‘Going blank again’ (1992). After being one of the most anticipated returns of the year when they met again in 2014, in their second stage they have already published a couple of albums, ‘Weather diaries’ (2017) and the most recent ‘This is not a safe place’ ( 2019), which they will review on this return to the city hall. Tonight in concert at Sala Apolo.
070 Shake is really ahead of her time with Modus Vivendi and that’s probably on purpose. Its sound and execution live on another planet, somewhere far away from here.
Though it’s said Shake is a hip-hop artist, it’s best to not box her into any particular category to truly understand what type of artist she is, as she really shows off her range freely on Modus Vivendi. The rapper sponsored by Kanye West will present today her first album, Modus Vivendi, in La (2) de Apolo.
Morgan has become one of the most beloved groups for both the public and critics. After their huge debut, “North”, in 2019 they premiere “Air” and go on tour: more than a hundred concerts throughout the country, in addition to Ireland or UK, including a double of ‘sold outs’ in the Circus Price. A tour that has won, along the way, five Music Awards. Now, the AirTour is over and before the deserved stop to take a breath, Morgan will say goodbye to the stage with twenty-five concerts in emblematic spaces such today in Sala Apolo.
