Tortuganonima

If you are gonna make something original, make it from the heart. Simple as that. And Tortuganónima has become the living proof of that. Making exquisite music very well done, approaching to the progressive rock, being all that virtuous on instrumentation, without being obnoxious about it. That’s why we love every album these guys release. Every song is so well executed, but at the same time, so original in every chord. Almost cinematic, they have built this unstoppable road bike, going smoothly through the pacific coastline with the sun in your forehead, inviting us to a nostalgic trip and encountered feelings. Because it’s not only some random virtuosity, their music is that and more. Sensations and emotions clashing between compasses and rhythms. And a proposal like this… is worth the shot hearing. Lets put some ear to this blasting tunes and nostalgic melodies, because Tortuganónima  is the perfect band to move straight forward. Tortuganónima are  Gabriel: Guitar • Gérard: Guitar • Felipe: Bass •Octavio: Drums Facebook • Bandcamp By: Francisco Cifuentes.

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 […]

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.

Siempre llueve al atardecer

The songs of “Siempre llueve al atardecer” are like a forest: you do not know where it start, where it end or where you are at that moment. Its instruments create an atmosphere in which it is difficult to concentrate on something specific, and you can only enjoy it as a whole. A place as abstract as special. You get carried away by your changes of rhythm, by those voices that appear and disappear in the thick of the melodies, by those loud guitars that sometimes find calm, but immediately they break it again, by those bursts of battery that wrap your ears, that vertigo that grabs you from the inside and pushes you into the unknown. The first thing you feel when listening the first EP, with the same name as the band, is the 17:44 minutes are made short. Their first three songs accelerate you, make you run through that forest in search of a place to stay, without letting you stop. And then comes the fourth theme, “Siempre llueve al atardecer”, and then you just stop there. Because it feels too good. That forest that was unknown, transforms into familiar and becomes the one you want to […]

El Mal Gusto

El Mal Gusto is a post punk band that grabs you, shakes you and holds you in every song- A liberating force that kicks your head until there´s nothing left, to do anything you want with your frantic, direct and surrounding melodies. Because their music goes with everything but staying sited. The powerful combination between guitar, bass, drums and trumpet closes the circle in a perfect way, leading you to those darks and crowded bars, filled with people, chaotic, when you never know where exactly you are, but definitely, having a good time. With “EP-1” (2013), their first EP edited by UVA Robot, they start to show the strength inside, and with “Desayuno” (2014), their first LP, it was indicated that their path was serious. With great songs as Guanaqueros, Miguelitos o Caribe. And they had released recently their second EP, named “Ideas Borrosas” (2016), also edited by UVA Robot; where you can perceive an step further in their quest, with songs mostly instrumental, more intense and more delusional rhythms, appreciated perfectly in two songs, “Ideas Borrosas” and “Fuente de Soda”. With no doubt, a band that has a lot more to give. And we hope it does get done, […]

Surfin Caramba

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 […]

Cárnavas

There are certain places in the emotional side of the brain so hard to access that is required a good amount of sensibility. A sensibility capable to feel every vibration produced on the stream of affections. Take that, mix it with shady guitars and gasping vocals, and you get Cárnavas. A fine example of how a band can evoke a very well crafted EP with melodic songs. Songs made to contemplate every moment you would like to keep. Nada es Absoluto is their first work on record and they are currently working to keep the trail on the track. So don’t let be misunderstood, whenever you feel that there is no soundtrack for that distant sunset in that distant memories, don’t you ever forgot about Cárnavas. Cárnavas are: Angello Giorgio (Vocals – Guitars) Víctor Zavala (Drums) Camila Núñez (Bass) Matías Durán (Guitar- Synth) Paolo Parachen (Guitar- Keyboards) Facebook • Website By: Francisco Cifuentes.-

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.-

Magaly Fields

Magaly Fields is a psychedelic rock n roll that is here to blow your head off with fresh sounds and sharp guitars. When listening to Magaly Fields, a duo coming from Santiago, we can remember Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Soledad Brothers and The Oh Sees, among others. Besides, if we add to this a little and spicy street blues, we get as a result a powerful sound, raw in its moment, but never ending in saturation. The constant relationship between love and hate that borns from guitar and drums, achieves his maximum splendor on each of their songs. And this makes them one of the few bands very atractive to listen on record or live. A constant transformation that takes you in a path with very little chances to go back. A path towards nirvana that  is shared with their fans in every gig. Chromatic Days, their first album, reflects the diversity of colors and contrasts printed on their work, an style cultivated since the dawn of time to the present days. Magaly Fields are: Tomas Stewart (guitar and vocals) and Diego Cifuentes (Drums) Facebook • Bandcamp By: Pablo Pérez
