Hit of the week: Everything Everything ”Can’t Do”

UK band Everything Everything has dropped a new single entitled ”Can’t Do,” the lead-track off their forthcoming, James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode) produced album A Fever Dream. This is the band’s fourth album. It’s the follow up to the critically-lauded Top 10 album “Get To Heaven”, an album that can now be seen to have been incredibly prescient given the current state of the world. It was their third consecutive Top 10 album, after LPs “Man Alive,” and “Arc.”

So Long Forever Palace

The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever  will play tonight at  Sidecar.

Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever  is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.

Hit of the week: Jens Lekman ‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’

‘What’s That Perfume That You Wear?’ is the first track off Lekman’s upcoming fourth album Life Will See You Now. The track heavily samples steel drums from Ralph McDonald’s track ‘The Path’, giving ‘Perfume’ an ecstatically upbeat composition. ‘Perfume’ operates at a high tempo, with a sweet bass line recalling disco- a genre that Lekman has revealed to feature heavily on his new album.

Productora de Pardals: Tuska

Tuska  released their debut single Fine a while ago. Mestre Bergman introduced to us this duo from Brighton  whose members are: Richard Sturges and Rob Weaver.


Born out of their love for Modern British Rock and all things Psychedelic, Tuska meld together spacey synths, crunchy guitar riffs and falsetto vocals with intricate songwriting to provide a complete experience for the listener. Both multi-instrumentalist and experimentalists Sturges and Weavermeticulously create every inch of their songs harnessing the ability to stuff the right drum beat under the right melody, or peppering the right harmony to compliment the appropriate backing vocal.


Tuska’s debut single Fine is the perfect introduction from the duo, a psych-pop track which builds to an irresistible chorus ignited by a weighty riff that just refuses to leave your head. These three minutes embodies exactly what the band are: cinematic, melodic and intriguing. Some few ago the’ve just released a new song “We could be alone”

Un boom anomenat Hinds

Segurament el grup español més internacional del moment, les Hinds són quatre joves de Madrid que porten més d’un any voltant per tot el món hipnotitzant a tothom amb el seu pop punk garatger d’efectes instantanis. Per fi tenen llest el seu debut en llarg, ‘Leave me alone’ (2016), que han editat al segell britànic Lucky Number i que presentaran acompanades del novaiorquès Tall Juan. Avui a la sala Sidecar.

El retorn de Los Fresones Rebeldes

No només de reunions de grups internacionals viu el món del pop. Aquí també tenim retorns sonats, com el de Los Fresones Rebeldes, grup de Barcelona que va sorgir a mitjans dels 90 en plena explosió ‘indie’ a Espanya. Pioners de l’anomenat tonti-pop espanyol i autors del clàssic indie ‘Al amanecer’, del ja llunyà 1997, s’han reunit per celebrar el 25è aniversari del segell madrileny Subterfuge, que va editar els seus dos discos, ‘Es que no hay manera’ (1997) i ‘Éxitos 99’ (1999). Aquesta nit a La2 de l’Apolo.

Pardals: Ran Ran Ran

Sorgits de les cendres de Tired Hippo i bregats al cau Hi Jauh USB del Poblenou, Ran Ran Ran és la nova encarnació amb la que Ferran Baucells importa l’esperit de l’americana i s’empapa de la tradició del folk per acabar coquetejant amb l’electrònica. El projecte, completat per Jordi Farreras a la percussió, ha donat de si tres enigmàtiques maquetes (Més brotsTot ok stop i L’Encyclopédie) que s’han convertit en la matèria prima del seu primer disc, Ran Ran Ran (Bankrobber, 2015). Són els nostres “pardals” de la setmana.
