Local Bands: Ljubljana & the Seawolf

Ljubljana & the Seawolf neix a Barcelona a principis del 2012 a partir d’un projecte comú de cinc músics que tenen les seves arrels en la música de carrer a partir d’instruments acústics, cops de peu, equilibrismes i més peripècies, com també bregar amb les normatives restrictives que absurdament té la nostra ciutat explicar les expressions artístiques no convencionals. Presentaran el seu nou EP, ‘Shit dope’ (2018). Avui en concert a Laüt.

Local Bands: Balago

La banda barcelonina Balago, formada per David Crespo -l’únic que ha participat en tots els àlbums del grup- i Guim Serradesanferm presenten el seu nou disc, ‘El demà’ (2018), un nou pas en la seva constant evolució en un so que busca obrir nous camins a partir de l’experimentació. Avui en concert a la sala ArtTe.

Local Bands: Malachi Estéreo

Malachi Estéreo arrived from the underworld of Barcelona with the mission of disturbing the establishment and leading the masses. Malachi is Rock, he’s tough, he’s a bullet in the balls and he’s bizarre. Go out and enjoy fucking. It is a group from Barcelona formed by Brown Fox, Albert Julve and Bob Gonzales.

His music is blunt mix of punk rock, funk, electronic and hip hop, Sampleadélicas, fun and fresh songs full of great beats, distorted guitars and lyrics vacilonas, tremendous themes loaded with electroide energy, rotund beats, funk rhythms and eighties synths perfect for make you poge and dance break on the sidewalks, rough and dirty throbbing punk attitude that fuses with disturbing samplers and incisive rhythms creating addictive hits of rave punk, direct, bastards and bizarre raw and visceral sound compositions that vomit electro punk rock pillions and they flirt with funk and house, a very interesting band that has dazzled us because of the quality of their proposal and their huge live show.

Among its influences can be groups like NOFX, Rage Againt The Machine, Coldcut, Jamiroquai, Cypress Hill, Beastie Boys, Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin …

Local Bands: The Unfinished Sympathy

Els veterans The Unfinished Sympathy, que han tornat als escenaris després d’uns anys fora de circuit presenten ‘It’s a crush’, un disc que arriba de la mà de tres dels antics membres de la banda –el líder Eric Fuentes, el guitarrista Oriol Casanovas i el baixista Joan Colomo– als quals s’ha unit a la batería Víctor García, una altra figura cardinal de l’escena catalana. Aquesta nit a la sala Sidecar.

Local Bands: Oso Leone

There is music that is naturally beautiful and there is music that is artificially beautiful. The first hardly needs any make up to enhance the beauty; the second also radiates beauty but needs a little postproduction. There is a third and rare category to which Oso Leone belong:  the beauty of their music is not only intrinsic, but they also know how to embellish it with masterful touches. The fact that musical golden ratio of the Mallorca band was destined for universal fame was already obvious on Mokragora (2013), a folktronic fantasy that caught the attention of half the planet. Gallery Love, their third album, is like a map of an imaginary glass city. Jingles, transparencies, sparkles, reflections… Beauty that is at once fragile and solid. Natural and artificial splendour.

Local Bands: Orange Broek

El duet de synthpop de Barcelona format per Pere Jurado i Arnau Feixes és un nom a tenir en compte. Caixes de ritmes, sintes, melodies d’infecció massiva i regust a Ultravox en un pop de lletres encertadíssimes, on hi ha una certa equidistància entre la irònica distància d’uns Astrud i les temàtiques de desamor cobertes de colors d’uns Pet Shop Boys. Dos working class synthpop heroes.
