The Dagger Complex

There are places and sounds that are waiting for us. The routine of the cities pretend to generate a monotonous system that takes you and drags you. Something like a sea of noise, saturating our ears with unrecognizable sounds and many times, called silence. However, there is a bottle floating in this ocean, waiting to be found by those who are able to stop, watch and breathe. Then…you know what is established, you know what will happen and you know the “rules” of your routine. Maybe now is time to open that bottle and wonder with something new that has benn always waiting for you. Like a debborian invitation, The Dagger Complex comes to change your atmosphere, the way you look and hear your day. That’s right, just like your earplugs and a mid afternoon coffee are the perfect companion to start listening the path that TDC has for you. The march begins with Vibrant (also, the tittle to their EP), song that leaves more than a minute to a soft introduction and opens the door to your ears into the inside of these 6 songs that conforms this beautiful EP  of 21:31 duration. TDC borns as such in march […]

Chicago Toys

Shoegaze? Noise-rock? Dream pop? What’s the deal with so many labels? Its just music we love to love. Period. That’s how we feel about Chicago Toys, music filled with so many influences, gathering the best from them and making some new and original shit. Owned entirely by them. And man, it sounds really good. Either is riding your bike, kissing that special one or feeling lost in the translation of life, those unique moments can be shared with a song from these Chicago Toys. Fast and dreamy guitars, gazing voices, piercing bass and frantic drums. Have we mentioned that their melodies are as good as their technique? Well, now we said it. So feel lucky to be living in Chile these days, because doesn’t matter how ugly things get in this land, now you have a band that can wipe out those hopeless feelings with kick ass tunes and powerful riffs. Thanks to Nicolás Stein, Pablo Dinamarca and Francisco Gaete, thanks for their two EP’s “Chicago Toys” (2012) and “Color” (2014), thanks for their long duration album “Lost Niños” (2016) and thanks for making us rocking with their tunes. Chicago Toys Are:  Nicolas Stein – Voice and Guitar Pablo Denmark […]

Cholita Sound

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

MONOAZUL

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 […]

Silabario

Emotions are idealized so many times by cinema and music that is so difficult to find them in a earthly and pure state. In love with simple desires, in hard worked relationships that always end up failling,  sentences without excessive adornments,  unpretentious stories that don´t need happy endings or sequels. Maybe that’s why it’s easy to connect with Silabario. Because they’ve been making songs with such everyday emotions and in familiar scenes, that they end up getting into them. And it feels good to be there. It’s not difficult to see yourself in the illusion of Los Planetas: “This is our time / Escape from Hell / Let’s go only to buy lunch / I’ll take you wherever you want”, or in Portugal “And when you can not more / We will rest on an endless vacation / hugging the sea “, it’s not difficult neither to feel all the pain and honesty in Las Luces “I feel heart broken in two / I feel to see home alone part one and part two / I also want to lose myself In New York / I’m so drunk / The lights hurt me / And I’m not going to forgive you “.

EL COMODO SILENCIO DE LOS QUE HABLAN POCO

The silence becomes comfortable in complicity. In the harmony of those who know that it’s connection goes beyond words. No necessity to fill the void, because is in that void where many times big and unexpected things grow. Is in that wide and eternal space where any moment seems like an explosion, a clash of ideas, glances and hummings. A Big Bang out of nowhere becoming a note, a song or a lyric that hundreds of people will sing months after, as if were theirs from all their life. This harmony and connection we felted in Yavey, Vado, Franci, Sergio and Mati, the guys from El cómodo silencio de los que hablan poco. Their first EP, recently launched, “Run Run”, is a synchrony of instruments generating atmospheres soaked in honesty and winter afternoons. Guitars that lift you up, just to let you fall. A mix of voices that navigates among tranquility and total despair. Bravery in their proposal, a debut where nothing’s left and everything transits through melodic tunes, like “Caroline”, “5” or “Cigarro en la pieza”, to others where the lyrics leads us to some point in our lives, like “Despedida”, “Jardines” or “Tiempos bajo el sol”. The last […]

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 […]

Adelaida

Valparaíso, a place for ups and downs, narrow streets, a place easy to get lost, and easy to discover. Here is where Adelaida let their sound come off, a sound that is easily complemented by the sounds of the port, bathing in the same essence that makes them so unique. Like an alter ego of his members, Adelaida has its own personality with different moods, reflected in each of his lyrics and chords. When listening their repertory, we can highlight clear influences of the purest and nineties-que grunge. Paused rhythms and solid drums assemble their way in a perpetual march into your ears. In 2015, they had the opportunity to make a record with jack Endino, Nirvana`s producer, achieving a very well made work. The final result was two highly produced tracks, tuned with the eye of the experience. Added to their previous work with Pablo Giadach in their first album, Monolito. Adelaida are: Jurel Sónico: Vocals, Guitar and Synth. Gabriel Holzapfel: Drums, tambourine and piano. Natalia Adelina: Bass and vocals. Facebook • Bandcamp By: Pablo Pérez.-

TECNICAS MANUALES

  Pop with day-today anecdotes, pop without complications, pop with two guitars and a Chilean bombo. Perhaps only in a place like Valparaíso, land of cloudy landscapes, street culture and bohemia, the pop of Técnicas Manuales could come up to life. Hanging out with friends, grabbing the instruments and starting to sing. Sometimes only that is what it takes to show the world what are you doing. Daily stories in a daily way, simple, real and without preambles. His two guitar and bombo, allows this trio a permanent versatility to play, bars, coffee shops, breweries, the corners of Plaza Sotomayor, etc. Being a great plus the homelike sessions of “Vamos a la casa del J”, where other bands and friends are invited to play in Jota Amparo`s house (Guitar and voice). A fine example of self- organization, porteña style. Técnicas Manuales are: Jota Ampuero / Guitar and voice • Ingmar Schröder / Guitar and voice • Pablo Saavedra/ Bombo Facebook • Soundcloud By: Pablo Pérez.

Niñosindigo

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.
