Podcast : Copeando con Los Guarriors – Apocalipsis

¡Amiguitos! Copeando con Los Guarriors tiene lenguaje soez, albures, mentadas, comentarios ofensivos y malas analogías. Se recomienda para público adulto…o tan adulto como se considere a 4 panzones hablando de ñoñerías con palabrotas. ¡Disfruten! PD: Acompáñenlo con leche.

En esta edición, Ogo y Gonzalo me acompañan para hablar de LA SEMANA APOCALÍPTICA (MR). Temas: La granizada, el temblor de 7.2 (o 7.5), la muerte de Gabriel García Márquez, el apocalipsis de niño, el Cristo de Iztapalapa, Cthulhu,  y Record Store Day 2014. (more…)

Review : The Darcys – Hymn for a missing girl

I think what I always liked about The Darcys is their desire to do new things, putting themselves against a wall and jackhammer their way out of the situation.

Why do you need new bands? Everyone knows rock attained perfection in 1974. It’s a scientific fact.

Coffee with Orestes: An in depth analysis of Katy Perry’s Dark Horse

Hey ho dee ho dee da, followers, I’m Orestes Xistos, I was told that Sloucher doesn’t speak often about popular-popular music, so I drank a fifth of vodka (DARE ME TO DRIVE?) and listened to Katy Perry’s smash it about his break up with Russell Brand. No, not that one. No, not the other one. No, not even that other one. Oh, well, let’s dive into this swan dive of a dive bar song.

Xiu xiu – Angel guts:Red classroom

xiuxiu

For the most part, one can escape the noise of a day. Xiu Xiu though seem to have a different approach – encapsulate that noise, distort it, include lyrics, and then force the listener to endure it. (more…)


SXSW Diaries Saturday – Possible Kill Screen

SONY DSC

Note/Warning: My proper reviews for SXSW will be on La Pop Life and Gold Flake Paint soon(ish). For Sloucher, I’ll be posting diary-style stuff, mostly unedited (barring a few typos that had to go away, replaced by more typos. Most of these diaries were written late at night and honest to God, this is how they went. No clear cut narrative is intended, just general ramblings. Enjoy this Gonzo-style experiment.

“The most promising acolyte left us, not out of the lesser folly of sentiment, but the greater folly of anger. His heart was clouded, and his balance was lost, but his abilities were unmatched. Even then, we knew to watch him most carefully.”

Singles Review: Black Feet Revolution, Fear of Men, A. Mountains, Dead Stars, The Mercy Beat

HOLY FUCKING SHIT! I’m back, ladies and germs and… you know what? Screw that binary gender malarkey. HI READERS. That’s better. Welcome to another edition of our “reviewing releases late again” single reviews column.

This week’s singles come courtesy of a lifelong depression triggered by the ending of Stalker: Clear Sky. That was some Bible-calibre depressing stuff.

Ah, singles, right:

Podcast: An Americana Mixtape for your Datsun Saloon

When I was a kid, my mother drove us around everywhere in her Orange(later Crimson) Datsun car. I can’t recall the exact model (looked like a Laurel) but I remember the button controlled stereo and that the music we heard was this station that played 70s rock and Americana. Stuff like America, Bread, Gram Parsons, Big Star, John Denver and the Eagles were some of the staples, besides other AOR stuff. (more…)

Oliver Wilde at “Bungalows and Bears” 27/03/13

Oliver Wilde and his posse (including a gang of errant Finnish film makers) breezed into “Bungalows” three or four gigs into their tour in front of Oliver’s 2nd album release in May. A decent crowd gathered to see the band which proved quite difficult as the venue’s commitment to putting on a live gig seemed to revolve around a very small “performance area” with NO lighting at all.
