Music by Bergman: Hercules & Love Affair

Tres anys i una aventura en solitari d’Andy Butler és el que ha passat des de la publicació de ‘The feast of the broken hjeart’ (2014), últim disc d’ Hercules & Love Affair, fantàstic projecte disco que completen Rouge Mary i Gustaph pel qual han passat les veus Anohni, Nomi Ruiz, Kim Ann Foxman o Aerea Negrot, entre altres. Ara presenten ‘Omnion’ (2017), el nou àlbum, on hi canten Faris Badwan de The Horrors o Sharon Van Etten, entre d’altres. Aquesta nit a la sala Apolo.

Hit of the week: Algiers ‘The Underside of Power’

Soulful experimental rock outfit Algiers have released their sophomore album, The Underside of Power. The follow-up to the multinational band’s 2015 self-titled debut is out June 23rd via Matador Records. Today they will play in concert in sala Razzmatazz. The Underside of Power is a rallying cry against those oppressive forces, as clearly demonstrated on the album’s title track.

Divus Julius presents…Spoon

La banda de indie rock de Austin, Texas, presentó su último trabajo en marzo de este año, ‘Hot thoughts’, el noveno de su carrera y, dicen, el más innovador, con una vuelta de tuerca en la lírica, tan carnal como elaborada, buscando una clara fusión de géneros. Conoceremos hoy sobre el escenario de la sala Apolo estas nuevas canciones interpretadas por Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, Robe Pope y Eric Harvey, que nos tienen acostumbrados a su ración de melodías asombrosas, inspiradas en la tradición folk-rock-pop norteamericana pero alejadas de lo típico en sus estructuras instrumentales. Canciones compuestas y producidas de manera limpia, arriesgada y creativa. El nombre Spoon fue elegido precisamente por una canción que era parte de la banda sonora de la película ‘Das Messer’, titulada así, ‘Spoon’, y firmada por la banda alemana de krautrock Can.

Local Bands: Ferenc

Fra Soler and Maxi Ruiz are the masterminds behind Ferenc, an impressive techno project that was born in 2003 with the hit ‘Yes Sir I Can Hardcore’. This success was followed by the excellent ‘Fraximal’ and ‘Zambomba’ (Kompakt,2008) before the duo then put the partnership on temporary hold. Fra is known for his longstanding residence at Nitsa and for performances in across the world, and Maxi has been part of the artistic cast for the Apollo group for several decades.
Finally breaking the silence after several years, the duo have  presented their new material at MIRA 2017 at the 3D Sound Room by SON Estrella Galicia, with a live performance in which the expert use of sophisticated arrangements, subtle sound selection and the elegant trademark references of both artists promise a world-class techno experience.
