los chipitos de chapultepec

Five people on the room. One of them is a Peruvian chaman from the Amazonas. He says he has something that will cleanse our bodies and souls. Suddenly he pulls out a record from his chamanic purse, we look to each other… excited, very excited. We took the record and put it on the turntable. The chaman says…” beware, mi niño, once you press play, there’s no way back” What the hell he knows, it’s my turntable anyway. Who invited him to the party, eh? I press play…and everything changed. An estrange feeling filled me, from the tip of the toes to every hair in my head. Suddenly my shoulders are moving from right to left. What kind of flow is this? My mestizo blood urges me to keep dancing to this. “What is this?” I asked the chaman… It´s Chipitos de Chapultepec, boy…. Now shut up and dance. The playlist is running…you better be prepared for every song…this trip is on!!!! “Baila Teresa” – the first sip of the potion…strange and warm sparks on my guts… “Ay que calor” – the potion begins to make effect… hips moving on their own “Navegando por el Loa” – the lights are […]

Maleza

Deconstrucción, Maleza’s first EP, is a ritual. Ayahuasca that’s not only seeking to look into the outside, but also into the inside of us, trying to connect us with the purity, with the earth, with the blood. Their psychedelic sounds, combined with alt rock and folk, stirring our head to mix all those preconceived ideas, because in order to see the truth surrounding us, we must have a clear mind, free of them. Rythms that lead us from one side to another, holding us. Beginning  a trance where the music bends with ambient sounds, where we are, nowhere. And lyrics entering in that space, already free and available to be contemplated, with texts trying to open our eyes like the “Puede Ser” ¿Cómo es qué, miles de años pueden confluir, /¿How is that, thousands of years can confluence, En esto que nadie volvería a vivir? / in this that no one would live again? Un grillete para controlar / A shackle to control Un grillete que puedes comprar / A shackle to buy Un grillete hecho para ti / A shackle made for you  Un grillete los/nos hará feliz. / A shackle will make you/us happy. And between that song, mini melodic and experimental tunes […]

ANTONIO GONZÁLEZ

In the middle of the concrete jungle, the buses, the collapsed subway, the traffic jam, the incoming bills, the advertising that is always trying to sell us things, the plastic cards that allow us to buy the things that sells us advertising in 45 fee or more,  the anxiety to win more than others, the rage, in the middle of all this chaos…. There is Antonio González. Taking us with his music to a quiet and calm place, where you can breath in and breath out. Simple melodies capable of abstracting us to a peaceful state. And it’s in the middle of that peace, where he’s more used to talk about love, pain and freedom, weaving stories and metaphors so in that way we can go, unravel them and discovering them. After his first two EP’s “Cartero Único” and “Idioma del Río”, last year he released “Psicología para astronautas”, an album that feels more round and solid than the previous ones with songs like “Asteroides en la cabeza”, ” Marcas imborrables” or ” Siempre te diré “. A project that is just beginning and sure to keep growing up, because that quiet place we can escape, will be filled with more and more […]

James Numerin

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.

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. […]

Uaral

Uaral, the most horrible way of representing beauty. How can anyone be so deeply immerse at the dark bottom of the existence and still find some light on an abyss? Uaral comes to shine a tenuous light upon the darkest places of your soul. Music very well-crafted, emotionally charged and surrounded by the mystery of the most singular band from the south central of Chile. A sensitive approach to the Chilean country field, Uaral puts together brilliantly the folkloric classic guitar with the guttural voices of doom/black metal. Because the south central of Chile is not only vivid celebrations and cuecas… it can be a cold, stark, and beautifully haunted place. With no more than two members, Aciago, (composer, multi- instrumentalist) and Caudal (voices), Uaral seeks to express their melancholy and futile existence through poetic lyrics, soothing acoustic melodies and raw laments of sorrow. A band with two long duration albums, Sounds of Pain (2005), Lamentos a Poema Muerto (2007). Uaral´s members don´t waste their resources and time seeking trivial desires. Aciago and Caudal are not looking for fame, neither playing on big venues, nor or less signing albums and t shirts, selling their music out. A reticent band, that […]

Oso el Roto

If aliens visit the Earth someday, land in your place and ask you politely… “Human, what kind of sounds are worth the listening in this planet?” your answer will be three magic words. “Oso el Roto”. The best combination of inexplicable tunes, lots of imagination and so little limits. A little bit tribal, much more experimental, many samples and nonsense lyrics as his battle flag. The absurdity is a gun, and Oso el Roto is pointing at you. Prepare to open even more your mind, and press play to this wonderful journey sponsored by Oso el Roto. With the participation of Dadalu in choirs and production, Ervalizer in monotron and choirs, this journey is far from finishing Produced by Ice Flex, Ervalizer.

  Songwriter from the fifth and magic region of Chile, the “calerano”, as we call to the people of his city (Calera), announces to the world a “new” artist to appreciate, truth be told, he has been playing several years but only publishing his LP at the early 2016. In fact “Nuevo Palpitar”, his first album, today in may, has only 2 months “on air” in the internet megalopolis.   This record with harmonic arpeggios and metaphoric lyrics, shows us that those characteristics come from a place. Inspired in great writers such as Neruda, Silvio Rodríguez and Víctor Jara, Salvador makes of the mixed rhythms, a very interesting fusion of styles that makes a true pleasure listening to the songs.

Matias cena

  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
