Alternative Hip Hop from Valparaiso, how cool that sounds? Is Abismo, slicing his rhymes with no mercy. An interesting approach to a genre ready to take the next step. Making a stand where the streets and innovation can peaceful collide. Sorry, did I say peaceful? In this dimension maybe, cause Abismo’s rap is clearly coming from another parallel reality. Rap so intricate as the streets and hills that watch him born. In a collaboration between beatmakers like Fkrpr and Gumo, (that we are glad that happened), Abismo present us a collage of influences so mixed up that is hard to tell which one is there. Taking the underground to a dark parking lot, beat him the hell up of it and then sending it home with the best impression of that night. Valpo Estado Mental is his first album and we have only but good vibes to what comes next. And as anyone who has been on Valparaiso and has met its people, you know that is only a question of time when something notorious born from the port city.

It´s difficult to define Cholita Sound. Her music is a mixture of lyrics, rhythms, places, visual, aesthetic, that opens a wardrobe in your head to find it in the bottom of it a new world full of psychedelia and powerful rhythms. A place where your grid definition of music has no place and where you expect to find everything, because you can really find anything. A unique and free place. It is a mixture of latinpop, reggaeton, disco, tecnockish (if we try, unsuccessfully, to define it) is a kaleidoscope full of sensations. You feel like you’re on the altiplano, in a taxi, in a Bellavista discoteque, in Central America, in Miami, in the corner of the bar. It takes you into a chaos that you try to sort out and understand, but you can’t. All you have left is to get drunk with that hallucinogenic chaos, and lose yourself. And you enjoy it. Caterina Purdy a.k.a. Purdy Rocks is the real name of Cholita Sound. Visual artist. Singer. Producer. Creator of worlds. Reggaetonera. Teletransporter. Aesthetic adventurer. Rocker. Cumbiera. All together and nothing specific. And vice versa. Let’s get lost. Facebook • Soundcloud By: Sergio Negrier

[This is not a drill. I repeat. This is not a drill. I repeat, stop whatever the hell you were doing and evacuate your homes immediately]. [This is an emergency]. [Different sightings have been reported from all over the country]. [I repeat. This is an emergency] Flying saucers have arisen from Valparaiso, invading our soundcloud, youtube, bandcamp and media. The message? A record of nine songs remembering forever these events: En el cielo a las 20:00. It’s Platillo Volador, my dear terrestrial friends and they are coming to get you. Making Lo Orozco, album EP debut in 2014 and releasing new album in 2016 (“En el cielo a las 20:00”), Platillo Volador is getting their first recognition as one of the bands with projection in the country. But who cares about that? Music so off of this planet that expectations and recognitions simply doesn’t matter. It’s too terrestrial, man. And that’s why we love this kind sighting, in the middle of nowhere, with the darkest night upon you and the bright light of Platillo Volador leaving you blind and unconscious for three days. What happened in between? You’ll never know. Psychedelic ensemble, noisey aggrupation, lysergic tripulation, called them whatever you […]

Love has that moment where everything feels so good that no one can ruin your day. Not even the alarm clock in the morning or a warm beer, that gray bureucrat of always or the damn uncertainty of everything, It feels so good that you wish to hug that suited up executive, all bitter and packed up in the subway, and say to him, “i´ts okay man, everything’s gonna be alright. I’ts a matter of time”. The songs of MonoAzul speak escentially about love. And it feels exactly like that gold and shiny moment of love. Because their melodies are drops of lisergic acid, pulling you off that hole and putting a damn smile, wherever your are. Catchy tunes, simple-hearted lyrics and a teenage optimism. “Regalo”, their first EP is composed by four songs as four slaps to wake up and leave. Anywhere. Or as “Vacaciones” says: “Te hice un pan con mermelada / Te hice un jugo de manzana / Vamos a subir los cerros, que el día está bueno / Vamos a subir, estando juntos nada puede estar mal”. Well, that. Just music that hugs you and say; “i´ts okay, everything’s gonna be alright. I’ts just a matter […]

La Hierba Roja by Zoológica Natural evolution. That’s the perfect concept to describe Zoológica and their last recorded work, La Hierba Roja. A fine example of how a band with a very defined sound, takes a leap away from their initial influences, and proceeds to create their own and attractive sound. A more mature approach to a more mature math rock. La Hierba Roja comes as one of the best surprises of the year. And yet, the seal of quality and dynamism in every track of the record remains the same over the years. Guitars dialoging between each other’s, restless drums, thunderous bass and eclectic voices are displayed in each of the four songs of the album. Leaving always a sensation of wanting more from these caged animals. So, feel free to play Zoológica’s new gem and enjoy the shit out of their tunes. Zoológica are: Rodrigo Abarca on Vocals and Bass. Matías Ponce on Guitar. Andreas Schiefelbein on Vocals and Guitar. Luiz Zuñiga on Drums. Facebook / Bandcamp By Francisco Cifuentes

La Fantástica Distopia Del Hombre Pez by Bagre From Talca with love, the hypnotic beats of Bagre. Lunar Tapes has become one of the best surprises of the recent years, an independent label with good musicians and interesting tunes. That’s why we praise today the amusing work of Bagre, and his catchy composition of nostalgic beats. Sometimes a video game, sometimes hip-hop, sometimes a chill and awkward afternoon, “La Fantástica Distopia del Hombre Pez”, his latest record, is all that. And we like it. So, imagine you are in a very strange period in your life. Shadows get bigger, people are less people and everything seems to be a little off. But that´s OK, you know, because Bagre is still on your playlist. Every single track on “La Fantástica” gets you to another sense of security and chillness. And if you think that`s too much, well, you can always press PLAY and get in the smooth vibe. You can fulfill your longing of nostalgia with the cassette version of “ La Fantástica Distopia del Hombre Pez” available now or the digital format. But we strongly recommend you to get your Walkman and listen to this beats, rich in 8 bit […]

Been caught on the ethereal loop of Niñosindigo over and over and over and over and over again has to be a paradise. Meet the personal project of Valeria Hernández, a visual artist from Concepción, and the woman responsible for many video clips and visuals from bands like Davida Loca or Niñosindigo itself, and indie art projects like Taller Monstruo. Her latest album, “Selva” finds the trance in the strings. An interesting approach to acoustic tunes backed by voices coming from the wind. All with the wild concept of “Fruta”, sounds from remote places and remote tunes. In its own abstraction, Niñosindigo stands as an escape door to the harsh streets, bright lights and irritating sounds of the city. A far away place, made by atmospheric folk, experimental samples and lo fi sensations. We have nothing but a high fidelity to one of the most interesting projects of Concepción.

MI NOMBRE ES DOLORES!
Music as a reflection of travel, experiences and experiences. Mi nombre es dolores! It is the lonesome project of Matías Hidalgo, bass guitarist of national bands and 608-z and Syndie. Leaving apart his usual instrument of 4 strings, he decides to take his acoustic guitar and start a parallel musical work that allows it to be author, composer and performer at the same time hinting in his lyrics and sound experiences of everyday life through songs like “Yo no me gané un oscar”, “mi mejor peor momento” and “hombre con suerte”. In 2014 he decides to leave Chile to start an international tour, starting on New Zealand, and then continue by Australia and Asia. Places where it can be released and show their material. In August 2015 confirms his participation in the Quest Festival. One of the most important alternative music festivals in Vietnam. Here he shares the stage with several prominent artists such as Ouissam, Jack Swift and Space Panther. In early 2016 he recorded two new songs that give a view of what will be his next album waterlogged to the end of 2016. Earlier this month decided to travel South Vietnam and motorcycle accompanied by his ukulele. […]

Caraslargas cuts right through the chase. No rodeos, no misunderstandings and no filter. The rawness of universal truths lies behind funky and jazzy progressions. A message spoken through smooth whisperings and belligerent rhymes. Pretty much like Jack Kerouac sitting in the same couch with Rage Agains the Machine, without losing the smoothness. Can you expect a better combination? With a debut album (Caraslargas, 2016) masterfully crafted by Ariel Noname dropping the mic, Salde bombing the bass, Feli on the funky guitar, Mati in the restless drums and Pancho on the sneaky keyboards., Caraslargas is definitely, the jazz band with the furious attitude owned by these guys. So we recommend you to listen. And listen carefully, because every verse of Ariel Noname is a sharp knife, and every time the drums speed the rhythm, that knife gets closer and closer. Meanwhile a smooth guitar drinks martini amaretto watching you bleed. So get a big incinerator and slowly light some candles. Caraslargas brings us acid rhymes on acid jazz.
