Music by Bergman: caroline

The journey of caroline to their debut album is also a valuable lesson in taking your time. The band’s self-titled full-length, released by Rough Trade, arrives close to a decade after the band first came together, and the years spent honing and refining their sound, list of members and philosophy haven’t been wasted.

Starting out in the mid-2010s as a three-piece post-punk band the band have since accrued five more members and seen their sound shape-shift into something far more untraditional and unique. This progression is shown chronologically on the debut album. The Rough Trade-signed band’s gorgeous, challenging debut incorporates midwest emo, Appalachian folk and more into a thing of unique beauty

Divus Julius presents: The Goon Sax

Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC6, Billboard and Rough Trade.

Three years on since the release of their last album ‘We’re Not Talking’The Goon Sax the aussies have announced that their new record ‘Mirror II’ will be arriving on 9th July via Matador Records. They share their first single: ‘In The Stone’

Les muses de La Musa: Joana Serrat

La Musa fa una ullada a casa nostra per fixar-se amb la jove vigatana Joana Serrat i atorgar-li el rol de “musa” d’aquesta setmana.

Mentre el seu segon treball, “Dear Great Canyon”, segueix acumulant lloances i rebent elogis tant d’NME com de les botigues Rough Trade o la ràdio nacional australiana, Joana Serrat prepara ja el que serà el seu tercer treball i el segon que publica en El Segell. Es tracta, sens dubte, d’un dels treballs més esperats de la temporada després que la cantautora de Vic s’hagi destapat com a compositora fora del comú i una de les veus que millor han sabut adoptar el folk estatunidenc obrint noves vies al jazz i al pop. Amb una gira que l’ha portat a actuar a Portugal, Anglaterra, Holanda, Luxemburg i Bèlgica, Serrat pot presumir també de ser una de les artistes catalanes amb més projecció. Serà en el proper Primavera Sound.
