ALASKALASKA are an art-pop 6-piece from London. They make beautiful, groove-laden music that seamlessly blends jazz, disco, funk and R&B into a bold and playful sound uniquely their own; synthetic beats play alongside live drums, delayed guitars and shimmering saxophones to create something musically rich and delightfully intricate.
Band leader and principle vocalist Lucinda twists brooding and introspective lyrics – akin to the words of Arthur Russell – into infectious melodies reminiscent of Warpaint, Dirty Projectors or Talk Talk, which demand repeat listens and could as easily soundtrack a wistful evening alone as they could a party. They ‘ve just shared a new song: ‘Meateater.’
Warpaint is the name of the angelic Los Angeles quartet formed by Emily Kokal and company. A project that dazzled from their beginning with their EP debut record, Exquisite Corpse (Manimal Vinyl Records, 2009), where the hypnotic and ethereal art rock was already revealed. Record after record they have improved their dark and atmospheric folk sound of shoegaze and psychedelic nuances until their third album, Heads Up (Rough Trade/Popstock!, 2016), where the fog and the mysterious aura of their songs finds its best version.
La darrera nit de Vida promet emocions a flor de pell amb l’espectacle ‘Los Angeles’ de Rosalia i Raül Refree i la presència d’Enric Montefusco i Pau Vallvé, tot això abans d’entrar en el folk atemporal i oníric de Fleet Foxes. Menció especial a la visita a Vilanova i la Geltrú de Mishima, que tornen als escenaris amb nou disc després d’un període d’inactivitat. Les nord-americanes Warpaint i el productor belga The Magician posaran el punt final a un Vida que cada any fa una passa més en qualitat i quantitat.
Most people know Pixie Geldof’s family history, but what they aren’t aware of is her musical chops and her remarkable ability to verbalise loss. The 26-year-old has just released her debut solo album “I’m Yours” Produced by Tony Hoffer (M83, Goldfrapp, Belle & Sebastian) and recorded in LA.
The third daughter of Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates previously fronted short-lived London grunge act Violet, who disappeared after releasing one forgettable single in 2012. Surprising then that, while there are indie shades of Mazzy Star, Warpaint and Lana Del Ray in evidence, her dominant influence is country music.
