The muses of La Musa: Alice Phoebe Lou

Hailed by Consequence of Sound for her “atmospheric vocal delivery…jazzy indie rock arrangements…(and) experimental, avant-garde textures,” Alice Phoebe Lou truly touches celestial heights with her frankly astonishing new album, paper Castles.

The South Africa-based artist’s second full length recording is a breathtaking song cycle of romance and struggle, solitude and adventure, told through a free-spirited blend of electronic soul and psychedelic folk that highlight her honeyed vocals whilst revealing a limitless approach to musicality and craft.

Songs like “Galaxies” and the potent first single, “Something Holy,” are like snapshots of small intimacies, brief encounters, and moments that matter, all reverberating with authenticity, resourcefulness, and passion. Tomorrow in concert at Razzmatazz 2.

Favourite Gig: Primal Scream

Bobby Gillespie and his Primal Scream, a living piece of history of rock and one of the essential pillars of modern music, authors of key albums such as ‘Screamadelica’ (1991) and ‘XTRMNTR’ (2000), are back in Barcelona to present the compilation ‘Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles’ (2019), a journey through the band’s more than 30 years of music. Tonight at Razzmatazz.

Favourite Gig: Eels

Eels, the unstoppable project of tortured singer and composer Mark Oliver Everett (also known as E), debuted more than 20 years ago with the hit album ‘Beautiful Freak’ (1996). Now they’re back to play tonight at Razzmatazz some of their classics and to show off their 12th album, ‘The Deconstruction’ (2018), published four years after ‘The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett’ (2014).

Favourite Gig: Haiku Hands

Electronic music collective Haiku Hands have announced their debut national tour. The Sydney-based group – Beatrice Lewis and Claire and Mie Nakazawa – has gained attention with their extremely boppy anthem ‘It’s Not About You’ and the funky ‘Jupiter’.  If you’re into strong multi-layered vocals, powerful lyrics and irresistible tunes tonight Haiku Hands in concert at Razzmatazz.

Divus Julius presents: Ladytron

With the passage of time, we have realized that Ladytron has been running for almost 20 years, and therefore they have stopped being that young Liverpool band that wanted to update the sound of synthetic pop – in the manner of mythical 80s groups  as The Human League– to become something better: the great synth-pop formation of its time, beyond the revivals and tributes. Ladytron have baggage, trajectory, important albums and hits, and their concerts have become increasingly rich and solid. Tonight at Razzmatazz they will present their new album Ladytron, the sixth already, and one of the most inspired of their long life.

The muses of La Musa: Tash Sultana

Tash Sultana is a dynamic young artist who has commanded world attention since homemade videos of Tash went viral. A true virtuoso, Tash was soon selling out massive theatres globally and playing at the world’s biggest festivals – no mean feat for an artist who just a year before was recording songs on a go pro in a bedroom. Since Tash’s grandfather gifted a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed a unique style that has people lining up to see around the globe. Tash has mastered over 15 instruments, vocals that shine with a magical quality and a live show that needs to be seen to be believed. The one-person powerhouse started out playing open mic nights on a fake id and busking on the streets of Melbourne. Now Tash is selling out every headline show, from theatres to arenas across multiple countries and playing dozens of high profile festivals around the globe.

Tash Sultana last release  is ‘Can’t Buy Happiness’ – the first new music since the globetrotting phenomenon’s J Award nominated debut album Flow State. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
