New Music: Sur Back, Adi Carter, Polaris Rose, URSS bajo el árbol, Solanas’ Sons

Hello there! Here’s a few new tracks for your listening pleasure. Several genres, several paths, choose your own adventure! Been hearing some good stuff about Sur Back this year and her newest track ‘Occam’s Razor’, from her Kitsch album, keeps her sound evolving into dark fantasy territories. Adi Carter brings back the sounds of yore with ‘1980’, a very Carpenter-ish track that even gets a cool remix … Continue reading New Music: Sur Back, Adi Carter, Polaris Rose, URSS bajo el árbol, Solanas’ Sons

Gig Review: URSS Bajo el Árbol @ Casa del Lago, México

SONY DSC

If there’s something true about us Mexicans is that we do love a free gig. More so when it’s a band you know will take you to Mictlán and back. Such is the case of the reality bending music of URSS bajo el Árbol, who played a free gig at Chapultepec’s Casa del Lago to flaunt their new album, 7, one which has been slowly making waves with two singles (‘Las aves sin ala’, ‘Los hilos de Dios’.) Continue reading “Gig Review: URSS Bajo el Árbol @ Casa del Lago, México”

Singles Review: Wampire, URSS bajo el Arbol, Ummagma, Painted Palms, Me You and Thomas, Landing

Greetings, readers eating apple jam filled doughnuts (via Dunkin Donuts)!  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 that bad ending I got in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. Shit, that was depressing, son.

Ah, singles, right:

Singles Reviewed : Maybeshewill, URSS bajo el arbol, Mooi, The Bedford Incident, The Narrows, Spring Offensive, Athena, Funeral Suits, Thelonius Rex, Partly Faithful

Greetings, readers who went to Vive Latino 2012 and fell in love at the party pit while being showered by plastic cups containing Cerveza Sol (and if it wasn’t beer, then fúchila)! Welcome to another edition of our “off again, off again, hey it’s on again!” single reviews column. Granted, some of them aren’t singles, but I liked them and made my stupid human collaborators review ’em. A huevo que sí. 

This week’s singles come courtesy of Macabre Johnson,  the conspiracy theory nutjob that lives in Weston Park, Sheffield. He keeps telling me that we are being watched with microcameras and microphones in all our gadgets and that we all are being sheepled into believing an alien invasion that is actually holograms projected in the sky. Get Scooby Doo and the gang on the case! Strangely enough, Macabre also makes a cracking cover of Muse’s ‘Dead star’ on the nose harmonica. He even gets Matt Bellamy‘s choirboy-meets-Thom Yorke tone right!

Ah, singles, right:

Wake up to … URSS bajo el árbol

URSS bajo el árbol (or USSR beneath/below/under the tree) is a band from México specialising on experimental rock. Their sound is dreamy, but more on the nightmare side of the scale, with a heavy use of effects. They’ve released a vinyl EP this year, with all songs recorded live. With a lot of magical realism added to their lyrics and some very interesting musical ideas … Continue reading Wake up to … URSS bajo el árbol
