    Dirty Beaches


    http://dirtybeaches.blogspot.com/

    Alex Zhang Hungtai, known by his stage name Dirty Beaches, is a Taiwanese-born Canadian lo-fi musician based in Montreal, Quebec.

    Like Bo Diddley or minimalist synth provocateurs Suicide, Dirty Beaches’ compositions are not so much stripped down as refined to their essence. Drum loops, Hungtai’s croon, and the yearning melodies draped overtop belie as much a sense of haunting mystery as they do romanticism and wry humour.

    Two Wounded Birds are back. And now, at long last, they will release their debut album, the self-titled Two Wounded Birds, and what a glorious debut it is! Not just a collection of songs, but a true album, well-rounded and fully formed.

    It’s been a busy couple of years for the band: they have released an EP—2010′s well-received Keep Dreaming Baby—recorded a BBC session, played Glastonbury, released two singles with Moshi Moshi Recordings and toured extensively with the likes of my band The Drums, Grouplove and Black Lips

    San Cisco


    http://www.myspace.com/sancisco

    San Cisco are from Fremantle in sunny Western Australia. On the weekends they love to go skateboarding, play Nintendo 64 and make a bit of indie pop on the side. Scarlett bangs the drums, Nick plays the electric bass, Jordi & Josh are the guys that play the guitars, write the songs and sing them.

    San Cisco have spent the last year graduating high school, performing at some festivals and playing round town pretty much every weekend. They have also produced their first EP called Golden Revolver, which is set for release early 2011. Confident with stage presence & strong with vocals San Cisco continue to impress with their brand of upbeat summer pop.

    Jordi says: “San Cisco is a place situated between reality & a dream state. It is kind of like a huge cauldron we put all out creative input into, mix it together to make a super explosion of fantastic, wild creations. This is San Cisco.”

    The band was formed by the Strathern brothers Owen and Enda and Shane Davey who met at St. Mary’s Grammar School Magherafelt. After Shane’s departure, he was replaced by Stephen “Leaky” Leacock who they met at Rainey Endowed School in Magherafelt, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. They formed General Fiasco in early 2007 and played their first gig at the Glasgowbury Festival near their home town on July 26th of that year.

Their debut single Rebel Get By was released on 10 November 2008. In an interview Owen said how they got their name. “There were loads of names going about. Someone came up with General Music which no one really liked and I came up with Marley Jedrejak Fiasco. So it was just a combination of two terrible names. There was someone in my class at school called Jedrejak, I think they were Australian. I just thought it was a really cool name.”

    Brothertiger


    http://brothertiger.bandcamp.com/

    John Jagos, the brain behind and sole member of Brothertiger, doesn’t aspire to be anything other than himself. His tunes are ostensibly “chillwave,” but with a sparkling melodic sense that sets them apart from other artists under that umbrella. Since the project’s beginning during Jagos’ freshman year at Ohio University, Brothertiger has developed a nuanced sound that attempts to blend the human and animal elements suggested by its name. As a live performer in the Athens house party scene, he’s gained a reputation for intense joyfulness. Recorded, his songs are more precious, with details and ideas that only reveal themselves with repeated listens. Buoyed by his voice - which contains both adult timbre and youthful disposition - Jagos’ songs combine layered, interweaving electronics with warm, satisfying melodies. He’s been releasing them at a fever pitch, earning favorable press from places like Pitchfork Media and the Fader while preparing his first full length less than two years after he began. Yet even with this gathering momentum, Brothertiger maintains a personal humility and unassuming nature that echoes the subtle exuberance of his music.

    www.thelumineers.com

    The Lumineers are lead vocalist and guitarist Wesley Schultz, drummer Jeremiah Fraites and pianist/cellist Neyla Pekarek. The Ho Hey Songfacts reports that Schultz and Fraites were originally based in New York and started collaborating in 2002 after Fraites’ brother, Josh, who was also Schultz’s best friend died of an overdose. The pair began writing and performing to cope with their grief and they later relocated to Denver, where they met the classically trained Pekarek after advertising for a cellist.

    A Denver, Colorado based group. The roots revival of the last few years has primed listeners for a new generation of rustic, heart-on-the-sleeve music—the kind that nods to tradition while setting off into uncharted territory. The Lumineers walk that line with an unerring gift for timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics.

He also explained that he would be collaborating with Amorphous Androgynous for an album that is due for release in the summer of 2012.

    Green’s first release came on Luis’ label, Tru Thoughts, when his track “Terrapin” was included on the compilation “When Shapes Join Together” in 1999. His debut album, “Animal Magic” followed the next year, completely self-produced and largely self-played, too. Hailed as one of the “new downtempo pioneers,” Green found himself attracting the attention of other labels and eventually signed to Ninja Tune.

  • BUM Murcia, 28-10-'11. Retorno a la adolescencia.

    29 okt 2011, 22:20 av Arantxa90

    Vie 28 Oct – Kaiser Chiefs, Second, SuperSubmarina, Nipples!

    Todo aquel que me conozca sabrá lo importantes que fueron Kaiser Chiefs y Second durante mi adolescencia. Fueron los primeros grupos, extranjero y español, de los que me hice fan, y todavía dura hasta día de hoy. Por ello, este concierto era tan especial para mí. Tal vez la crónica tenga un exceso de fangirlismo, pero para ser sincera, no tengo intención ninguna de ser objetiva en ella.

    Llegamos a Murcia casi a las 4 de la tarde, y después de descargar en el hotel, marchamos hacia la Plaza de Toros. Yo me esperaba cola, pero no había nadie, y hasta las 6 de la tarde no empezaron a aparecer los primeros asistentes. Como todavía no teníamos las entradas en nuestro poder (esto de que sólo se vendiesen en Murcia y nos las tuviesen que comprar no me gustó nada) y hasta las 7:40 no nos las trajeron, nos tuvimos que conformar viendo desde fuera cómo la gente entraba y entraba. Pero cuando por fin pudimos pasar, nos sorprendió que tampoco había tanta gente dentro... ¡incluso pudimos pillar primera fila! (eso sí, en el lateral izquierdo, justo delante de los altavoces).

    A las 8 de la tarde, puntualidad al poder, abrieron el concierto el grupo
    Nipples!, completamente desconocidos para mí. No pegaban mucho con el del resto de grupos de la noche, era más metalero... muy intenso. Sí, al principio me gustaron, pero como ese estilo la verdad es que no me va mucho, el resto de canciones me resultaron muy parecidas. Y teniendo en cuenta la posición en la que estábamos, nuestros oídos sufrieron bastante. Que no quiero decir que fuesen malos, ni mucho menos, solamente que no era lo que me esperaba. Destacar que se atrevieron con el Killing in the Name que todos conocíamos.

    Un poco antes de las 9 les tocó el turno a Supersubmarina, a los que veía por segunda vez, después de aquélla en Burjassot. Y la verdad es que se nota el cambio que han dado en estos dos años, tanto en el sentido musical y como en el del público que les acompaña. Tocaron canciones de Electroviral y Realimentación, y todos los asistentes cantábamos con ellos.
    Era el último concierto de la gira, nos lo recordaron. Les esperaremos a su vuelta.

    Entonces una pareja que estaba a nuestra derecha se marcharon (¿¡pero si queda lo mejor!?) y me faltó tiempo para ocupar sus sitios. Nuestra nueva situación estaba mucho más centrada en el escenario y abandonamos los altavoces que nos estaban dejando sordas.

    Cuando ya no me fijaba en la hora que era (la euforia y los nervios es lo que tienen), salieron al escenario Second. ¿Desde hace cuántos años los conozco? Desde 2004. ¿Cuántas veces los he visto en concierto? Si no contamos el acústico aquel de la Fnac en abril, ninguna. Ya tocaba. Y qué mejor oportunidad que verles en su tierra, en Murcia. Grandes, muy grandes, en serio, dándolo todo, superenérgicos. El concierto (corto corto) se basó en sus últimos dos discos, haciendo una excepción con Invisible. Piel de gallina, recuerdos de adolescencia. Lástima que haya desaparecido la fecha que tenían en Valencia.

    Y entonces, vino lo gordo. Lo mejor de lo mejor. Mi grupo favorito desde que los conocí con 15 años. Kaiser Chiefs. Aparecieron y ya fui feliz. Abrieron el concierto con Everyday I Love You Less and Less, empezaron fuertes. Pero es quedarse corta decir que "empezaron fuertes", porque el resto del concierto fue igual. Temazo tras temazo, no se dejaron un sólo hit en el bolsillo. Lo dieron todo. Con la de conciertos en los que he estado, y he de admitir que jamás había visto algo tan enérgico. Ricky corriendo de un lado al otro del escenario, saltando, bajando al público y lanzándose a él (maldito lado derecho, ¡ya se podía haber acercado más a dónde estábamos!), cantando toda Kinda Girl You Are pegado a la cámara (vimos la canción entera a través de las pantallas), subiéndose por los laterales del escenario en Take My Temperature... todo un show. Esto es lo que quiero yo cuando voy a un concierto. Y ellos me lo dieron.
    Maravillosa Man On Mars cantada por Nick y emoción con Love's Not a Competition (But I'm Winning), de lo más bonito que he escuchado en mucho tiempo. Y enloquecimiento general durante la mayor parte del concierto.
    17 canciones, alrededor de hora veinte minutos. Y se fueron. Ya espero con ansias la siguiente vez que les pueda ver, porque estoy segura que esta no va a ser la única.
    No pude conseguir la baqueta, al menos he vuelto a casa con un setlist.

    ¡Y no llovió!
