What´s so big about psychedelia that lures so many people into a colorful whirlwind, where everyone just chills on sunny afternoons? Well, for start, it may depend of what kind of substances you have introduced in your body and mind. And second, bands like James Numerin. Because the groovy sensations of the sixties are still alive in James Numerin work, not as a tribute or as a modern versions of old tunes, but instead, a new and creative way of making classic rock without sounding classic. Interesting musical views, deep atmospheres and clear convictions that remind us sometimes to Los Jaivas or Aguaturbia. Welcome are the unconventional guitars, the stranded pianos and freaky synthesizers. In this boat, there is space for everyone. No discrimination among genres, but influences very well marked. We want more from James Numerin, a walking experience. More from that well made sound and caring melodies. But for now, we are thrilled to show you a piece of their work and what means to us.

Leather jacket? Check. Shiny Doc Martens? Check. Personal Suavecito Pomade? Also check. Dance moves ready to blow our head? Damn right is check. Now you are ready to enjoy the rock & roll of Surfin Caramba and they very own definition of what cool is. So let spin that double bass and start dancing to the shameless swing of these Santiago rockers. The very start of Surfin Caramba takes place in 2001, when no one in this city knew with certainty what the hell psychobilly was. But as many musicians and rebels without a cause, they just didn´t care. Fast guitars, frenetic drums and consistent double bass made the basis of the band. All spiced up by cursed lyrics. Mysterious nights, abandoned cemeteries, desert borders, lost loves, recreational drugs and bad hangovers. You can find vast themes in Surfin Caramba’s music. And they are far from slowin’ down the compass, after Latin American and European tours, they are currently rocking the best of their discography, composed by “Surfin Caramba” (2008), “Navegando la Tormenta” (2011) and “Mi Camino” (2014). We are more than glad to keep hearing from Surfin Caramba, because every time these guys are rocking out, the Devil is […]

They are a litter borned in Valdivia, southern chilean city. Founded at the early millennium for the survivors of the century change. They have published 4 records, “La Rata Bluesera” in 2006, “Disco de Errores” in 2009, “Patas Negras” in 2011 and “Valdivia” in 2013. Now they are maturing the cheese for “El Viaje”, that is going to be their fifth. A homage with a lot of flavour to Schenke & Nilo, another band from the city of Valdivia, famous since times of the dictatorship. An anecdote from this street rodents is that in 2009 “Disco de Errores” was their very first studio album, ‘cause “La Rata Bluesera” is a compilation of live songs that they had to made due to the high costs of making a professional record those years for the band. ¿When have you saw a rat born in a golden cradle? In their career, extensive as his tail, they can say that have more of 700 presentations; they are the official band of Don Vilanova (ex Botafogo) in Chile; they opened the gig for Eric Clapton in Santiago before around 15.000 people; in october of 2014 they were touring in Mexico; in february of 2015 they […]

Triumvirate borned in the past millenium, around 1997 in one of the southest areas of Chile, Punta Arenas. Classmates with more than 8 records and three different bass players. Owners of a not so underground style, but a real cluster indeed, called by themselves as “Rock Patagónico”. Music that allow you to start an engine, press play and goes on a trip, or hold one cold beer, headbang and give free road to the brain connections. Authors of poetic lyrics that besides the textual meaning, hide a second or third understanding in some cases, giving free interpratation to the listeners. All that makes interesting every single hearing of the songs. The road has led the band trough Chile and beyond. Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Austria & France, have been visited counties by the group. They are musicians with proved experience, with a solid an powerful sound, having several (+18) years making the machine work with oily fluidity, good pistons in the engine and a little rust in the chassis as well as Rock & Roll has to be.

In April 2011, the Fother Muckers decide to start a new musical stage, being called “Ases Falsos”, a new band with the same members of the Fother Muckers, maturing in musical style but keeping the touch that characterized the last group. The name comes from the song of the disc No. 10 “Just and Necessary” for the Fother Muckers entitled “Los Ases Falsos”. In addition Cristobal Briceño in an interview to “Noiselab” says: Why the name Ases Falsos? C: There are two reasons, one reason that leads to another. There was a song of Fother Muckers 2008 that talked about a band called Ases Falsos. It is a story within a story, a box within a box, a dream within a dream. That band was called Ases Falsos because in Patagonia, where it comes from my family, there is a card game, the Spanish card called trick (truco), an amazing game, it´s like chess in that you can extrapolate its symbolism to the real life. It is much lying, like life. In this game there are cards that have a mediocre value, and the false aces (Ases Falsos) are the best cards (swords and vast), the gold and goblet are useless.

Matias Cena is the latest reincarnation of western fantasy: a fantasy where camaraderie is virtue in an endless journey, transporting to a irrefutably sound taken from the honky-tonk and the American country tradition. A perfect alliance between composition and interpretation, which emerges the figure of the folk singer and guitarist Matthias Cena. Despite this strong American influence, Matias Cena, provides the perfect ingredient mix: his admiration for the first garage wave in Chile, leaded by Los Vidrios Quebrados and Los Mac’s. A kind of devotion and appropriation of this forgotten by the common public identity. Record Label: Algo Records

Perrosky is a Chilean band formed by the brothers Alejandro and Álvaro Gómez, originally from the city of Copiapó, Chile. Their influences include rock and roll, folk and blues. The name “Perrosky” came from the childhood nickname of Alejandro, who was originally a solo performer before forming a duo with brother Álvaro. Originally from Copiapó, Alejandro moved to Santiago to study music, but left to form the garage rock band Guiso with his brother Álvaro, Álvaro Guerra, and – later – Bernardita Martínez. In 2001, initially with a small repertoire of songs, Alejandro recorded his first acoustic low fidelity cassette called Añejo (“aged”) and made his live debut in a bar in the neighborhood of Ñuñoa, Santiago. After this gig, Alejandro recruited his brother Álvaro to join him on drums, and the Perrosky style changed to become more electric. Although still playing in their parallel project Guiso, the Perrosky duo also began performing gigs in Santiago and other cities in Chile. In 2004, Perrosky released a six track album called Otra Vez (“Again”), which they later combined with tracks from Añejo to form their first full-length album, El Ritmo y la Calle (“Rhythm and the Street”), released in 2007. They […]
