I (Psicopatía para la justicia) ‘You must be Mr. Laurie. I’m Hugh Sholay, they sent me from Central.’ ‘Ah, yes, did they explain the process?’ ‘Yes, but if you still fancy giving me a tour of the place, please do.’ Mr. Laurie walks me through the old archival site. All the film cans from 1960 to 1980 are housed are, in a remote warehouse in … Continue reading Review: Acidandali – Plaga
The resurrection, or regeneration, if you want to use Doctor Who terms, of Acidandali was an atmospheric afternoon gig. Akin to the incense smell lingering in old church nave, the rich atmosphere was thick with diminished chords, reverb pedals and echo pedals on wet mode.

We are overjoyed to bring you an exclusive stream of Acidandali‘s brand new EP, Acidolandia. The soundtrack to an imaginary lost film finds the Mexican trio deep into found sound territory, where the loud squeals, unnerving cracks and fuzzy shouts of a thousand lucid dreams intertwine to bring 5 tracks pulled from the rarefied ether that surrounds a collective brain cortex. And if you think that sounded pretentious, … Continue reading Premiere: Acidolandia
2015. We wave goodbye to this year and just like any other before (and after), there were high and lows. This Shithole of a Website (TM) was supposed to close and we are still here, wondering what it all means and when is it really time to call it quits. It’ll be a whimper, not a bang, but that’s a discussion for another day. In … Continue reading The Great Promo Hunt – Best of 2015

Creo que es una cantaleta que se ha repetido mucho antes, en varias ciudades, para varios movimientos.

While we miscreant journos still ponder if the Mexican music scene is alive, dead or undead, undead, undead, undead like Bela Lugosi, Acidandali went and recorded a brand new spiffy EP. Here’s a teaser for you lot. And in case you missed it, their recent album takes a good spin down musique concrète alley. Continue reading Teaser: Ácidolandia EP
