Club 8 classics re-issued with bonus tracks

Club 8 "The Friend I Once Had" (1998) + 6 bonus track

With a glittery mix of jangly guitars, bossa nova and sophisticated, melancholic pop melodies, ”The Friend I Once Had” was a big step forwards for Club 8. Their debut album ”Nouvelle” may be regarded as a twee pop classic by some, but the band would happily bury most those songs under a rock. This is the album they wish was their debut.

"It is absolutely essential to own at least one Lp by this group. I'd probably suggest this one as the place to start, but you really can't go wrong.” 10 + INDIESPINZONE

Track listing
01 - Everlasting love
02 - All I can do
03 - Someday
04 - I wish you'd stay

18 - The friend I once had*

*Bonus track
Price: 140 SEK (€15)

Club 8 "S/T" (2001) + 2 bonus tracks

You could tell directly from the opening track that this was another move in a new direction for Club 8. “Love in december” is breathtaking, soulful pop imbued by dark Scandinavian winter atmosphere and bittersweet melancholy.

"If a lover's arms were as soft and sultry as the music on Club 8, returning to them again and again would pose little conflict, and the same goes for slipping into Club 8." ROLLING STONE

Club 8 "Spring Came, Rain Fell" (2002) + 5 bonus tracks

A start of a new era for Club 8. ”Spring came, rain fell” was the first album they recorded on their own in the now famous Summersound Studios which they share with fellow band Acid House Kings. The album sparkles of experimental lust with songs & sounds ranging from dub and electronica to smokey trip hop and folky- and acoustic pop.

"As summer slips away, wallow in some Scandinavian sadness with this Swedish duo's wonderfully soothing (UK) début."
TIME OUT (London)

17 - Sounds from the gulfstream*

*Bonus track
Price: 140 SEK (€15)

Club 8 "Strangely beautiful" (2003) + 5 bonus tracks

The last of three albums in Club 8’s productive peak between 2001 and 2003 is by many considered their best album to that date. Includes the noisy and Northern Soul-inspired single “Saturday night engine” which was a clear forerunner to The Legends ”Up against the Legends”.

”Club 8 fans and indie poppers should be overjoyed.”

Track listing
01 - When lights go out
02 - What shall we do next?
03 - I wasn't much of a fight

Pattern is movement

Seguro que con tanto disco y tanta música me pierdo algo interesante. Y esto de ir pillando lo que caiga, hace que el blog y mi gusto sea algo caótico. Y que te sientas rara cuando la gente salga "despavorida" de una disco, cuando te ponen a The Gossip. Supongo que tiene que sonar su música hasta en la sopa como el Young Folks de Peter,Björn and John, para que se hagan a algo indie.
Los acabo de descubrir ahora, creo que desde Cloud Cult, todo lo que suena "así" me llama la atención.Aunque bueno...esto es una versión de Radiohead.

Info recogida en MySpace:


A comienzos de 2008 Vetusta Morla publicarán su LP debut, Un Día en el Mundo. El álbum es un resumen musical de 9 años en busca de asimilar cuidados textos en castellano a los esquemas de la música popular anglosajona que forma parte del historial de estos 6 músicos. 9 años en los que han construido una identidad sónica usando la instrumentación de un combo clásico de rock, pero huyendo del lenguaje convencional del género.

Vetusta Morla es una banda que se ha forjado sobre el escenario y el núcleo de la formación es la complicidad, la pasión y la inmediatez de la música en vivo. En su primer álbum Un Día en el Mundo han tratado de recrear ese hechizo mágico, esa fuerza emocional estremecedora del directo, con un sonido premeditadamente natural, sin apenas trucos de producción y sin fuegos de artificio.

Un Día en el Mundo, es un fotograma sacado de una historia mayor, una historia inabarcable que se intuye en las experiencias cotidianas, sin acabar desvelarse. Sus canciones son píldoras casi cinematográficas, enigmas cuya clave sólo tiene cada persona que las escucha y que es invitada a llenar por sí misma los espacios en blanco.

Durante casi una década Vetusta Morla se han ganado una reputación de independencia, más allá de los tópicos sobre esta palabra. Esta reputación se confirma con la creación de un sello propio en sociedad con sus productores: Pequeño Salto Mortal, un nombre que resume lo que significa ser fiel a uno mismo y empeñarse en hacer canciones en tiempos de incertidumbre.

Bio en su MySpace:

Recent transplants from California, Cattywompus moved to Austin after playing in Texas during an extensive tour of the US in 2006. "We fell in love with the people and the music" James Webber sited as the reason for the move to the Lone Star State. "We respect the history of the great artists from Texas and the love that Texan's have for live music. We had some good adventures while we toured TX."
Brothers James (bass) and John (drums) Webber have been playing music since they were teens, heavily influence by their father's love of music and playing. "Our father was a percussion player. He would make us stay up late and listen to all of his old records, and in the mornings we would see various band mates passed out on the couches as we left for school," John Webber remembers.

James and Jonathan Lennartz met in high school and became immediate friends through their love of music. Jonathan started playing and writing music in college, and has since used songwriting as an outlet for his own emotions and life experiences. Aaron Bateman, Florida native, met James in 2001, the two began jamming, along with John and Jonathan, and began forming a unique sound that represented each member's individual personality and influences.

Cattywompus is a band dedicated to American Roots music. As diverse as America itself, so is the band's musical heritage. Whether it be Rock, Country, Blues or Folk no specific genre accurately pin points Cattywompus. The four have been playing together for six years developing their craft under the influence of the Rolling Stones, Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Neil Young and countless others.

Little Beirut

Rock / Indie

Portland, Oregon
United States




Edwin Paroissien. Hamilton Sims. Jon Trause. Alex Inman.

Bio en su web:

George Bush Sr., while in office, and visiting Portland, Oregon for the first time, was met with massive resistance and protests from the liberal city’s citizens. Some went as far as to ingest red, white, and blue food coloring in hopes of regurgitating the colors of the flag on Bush’s entourage. This led to the elder Bush nicknaming the city “Little Beirut”, a name that earned Portland national attention, and one that has stuck to this day and is recited as a badge of honor by many in the city.
Little Beirut is also a Portland, Oregon-based rock quartet that designs beautiful, lush songs on their commercial debut, “High Dive”, a collection of well-written, hook-laden, sweet pop nuggets that are just as much about the melody as they are a driving rhythm. Instantly accessible and easily memorable, don’t be fooled, because beyond their sugary exterior are vivid, deep lyrical assets to ensure these songs are anything but pop fluff.

Tying into the Bush-coined name of the band, Little Beirut tackles the younger Bush’s administration, namely Condoleezza Rice, with a love song entitled “Love During Wartime”.

“’Love During Wartime’,” explains vocalist Hamilton Sims, “is a jab at the war and the goings on of the Bush administration. But it’s also a jab at the fact that in order for [Rice] to become the most powerful woman in the history of U.S. politics, she had to be completely desexualized to make it okay. Hence why a love song to her seems so absurd.”

“High Dive” was a long time coming for Little Beirut’s two founding members, Hamilton Sims (vocals, guitar) and Edwin Paroissien (guitar, vocals), two friends that have played together for years, most notably in Silkenseed, a pop-rock outfit that had major label attention following their 1998 sophomore album, “Hurry Home” (Rainforest Records) and garnered praise from publications like Billboard, which described their songwriting partnership as “…instant pop hooks and tight guitar/rhythm interplay that mainstream rock has begun to embrace”.

Silkenseed disbanded in 2000 following a departure a year earlier by Sims, who left to go back east to attend graduate school.

Staying in contact throughout Sims’ graduate work, Sims eventually returned to Portland in 2004, and Paroissien and Sims started hanging out, writing songs together. These sessions lead to a 2004 studio demo, “Permanent Kiss”, which helped the duo morph into a four-piece with the addition of drummer Alex Inman and bassist Jon Trause.

Excitement and material grew within the band as they gigged locally and occasionally regionally.

Ready to record their proper debut, Little Beirut entered Portland’s Type Foundry to record what would become their commercial debut, “High Dive”, which will be self-released in February 2008.

Assisting them at Type Foundry were engineers Adam Seltzer (Norfolk & Western, M. Ward) and Badman Recording Co. owner Dylan Magierek, as well as local singer-songwriter and Portland music renaissance man Chris Robley, who co-produced “High Dive” with Little Beirut.

Having never used an outside producer or multiple engineers, Little Beirut realized they needed to push themselves beyond what they had done in the past if they were to fully realize the album they envisioned.

“We wanted to bring in outside opinions to help us with objectiveness and to make the recording more collaborative,” explains Paroissien. “We wanted horns, strings, and keys. We were anxious to move beyond the standard two guitars, bass, and drums set-up we’d done before, and felt seeking help on this would allow us to realize exactly what we wanted to do, without over-complicating the recordings or losing the songs in layers upon layers of instrumentation”.

This opened several new doors for the band in the creative department, invigorating them and encouraging them to test out new ideas, new sounds, and new boundaries.

“We experimented with different tempos, keys, and arrangements, until we got the songs either exactly to, or pretty close to where we wanted them,” Sims says with enthusiasm. “Once we got a song where we wanted it, we’d bring in Chris Robley, who would often trim the fat, re-work the arrangements to fit in orchestration, and help us really develop everything for the benefit of the song. We were able to get a lot of the lush harmonies and orchestrations through this process.”

Once the tracking was done, the band brought the record to the hands (and ears) of mixing engineer extraordinaire Jeff Stuart Saltzmann (Stephen Malkmus, Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab For Cutie, Menomena), giving “High Dive” a timeless sound and feel, ensuring it is just as much about the music as it is the mood for the listener.

All the time and hard work paid off. With the completion of “High Dive”, Little Beirut felt proud that they created a record that spoke not only through the lyrics, but with the music, too, delivering vivid imagery for the listener.

“The imagery of ‘High Dive’ touches on several recurring themes throughout the album,” explains Paroissien. “When you’re on top of a high dive, you’re completely alone, there’s an air of anticipation because either way, something major is about to happen, whether you jump or back down, or do something else. Each choice will have a major impact on the outcome of the event you choose.”

With a release date for “High Dive” set for February 2008, Little Beirut will bring their brand of rock to clubs, doing everything the old fashioned way, winning over one fan at a time with a strong record and a powerful live show to back it up.

"Merz sounds like nobody else in the world and the world would be alright if it listened to nobody else. We absolutely love him"
Chris Martin, Coldplay

Folk / Electronica / Alternative

Bristol, United Kingdom



Further press (Groenland Records)

Cast your mind back to the year 1999, to a world on the brink of a new millennium. A time when dance music was still at large, Apple and iPod were still conspiring in the wings for global domination and now ubiquitous artists such as David Gray were still broke. Joss Stone wasn't even a teenager! In the thick of all this, you may remember a singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist by the name of Merz.

Following the self-released 7 inch single championed by the likes of Jarvis Cocker and called “Many Weathers Apart”, a fierce battle for his signature by several major record labels, Conrad Lambert aka Merz signed to Sony/Epic and looked set to conquer the world. His debut album received widespread critical acclaim and led to appearances on Top Of The Pops, Jools Holland, and was subject to a Channel 4 music documentary. Huge support and Single of the Week also came from Radio 1’s Jo Whiley and an appearance at Glastonbury, featuring on the same bill as a group called Coldplay, who later became firm friends. His music was embraced by the then unreconstructed genre that was English folk, electronica and the fringes of dance (Pete Tong was a fan of some particularly tasty Francois K mixes) and would even be heard on soaps like Eastenders and Coronation Street.

Since his considerable splash in 1999, Merz has apparently disappeared without a trace. But six years later, he is well and truly back with a dazzling album, Loveheart. Elaborating on his early pastoral influences, the album features an astonishing range of delicate instrumentation, and crucially, is illuminated by brilliant arrangements, Loveheart is the work of a gifted and passionate songwriter with a rare musical talent.

Naturally, the first question is – what happened?

Despite a glittering entree to the pop music world, major label shenanigans ensued, leading Conrad down an unexpected road. “For any musician to walk away from a record deal goes against all your inherent instincts," he admits, "so it was a tough decision but absolutely the right one.”

Conrad worked on songs for his next album in Bath. “I worked hard for those years, but had a very unsettled life which made it difficult to complete a coherent album of songs.” Writing turned into a fraught, all-consuming process, and eventually he moved back to a small flat in Yorkshire to continue working towards Loveheart.

He found himself signing back on the dole in his hometown of Huddersfield. “That was very difficult, even more so as I signed on back where I grew up, which felt like going right back to square one on the Snakes and Ladders board.” The anguish of “Mentor”, where Conrad cries out for some kind of guidance – “be my mentor, won’t you influence the things I do / Step down here, be my mentor, I want your influence, I do” – comes from as raw and honest a place as has ever been committed to song.
Living a solitary life in the moors took its toll, inspiring moments of elegiac melancholia that emerge on the mellifluous piano-led album opener, “Postcard From A Dark Star”, where Conrad’s yearning, husky voice aches for “contact, my only wish is contact, my only dream is contact”.

Recorded on location in an empty 17th century parsonage, the sense of lonely isolation is palpable on the haunting “My Name Is Sad And At Sea”, where bells from distant ghost ships toll eerily in the background.

“It was gargantuan effort,” Conrad admits. “The hardest thing of all was getting up in the morning.” But slowly the record began to take shape, modelled by late night drives to and from Yorkshire. “The album is heavily influenced by the Late Junction show on Radio 3 and the John Peel show on Radio 1," Conrad smiles. "I used to write and record in Yorkshire but drive to Bath in between sessions to visit my girlfriend. I’d always drive at night on a weekday so I could listen to those shows. They had such a wide spectrum of music and it was all about discovery. It was great to switch from one show to the other, I’d kind of amalgamate both shows to make my ideal radio show."

Indeed, times were not all so bleak. Conrad married his long-time American girlfriend Jess in Mongolia, where his parents have lived for some fourteen years, and where Jess had also spent a year as an editor on a local English newspaper. Conrad found himself blossoming with ravishing songs like the intoxicated dance-on-air of "Dangerous Heady Love Scheme" and infatuated delirium of “Butterfly”. The enveloping intimacy of "Warm Cigarette Room" where “everything’s how it’s supposed to be” pointed the way out of the maze.

Loveheart was co-produced with Bruno Ellingham (respected engineer on recent albums by New Order, KT Tunstall and The Departure and emerging British producer of note). "He was like an Oxford professor," Conrad says, "I would come to him with my demos and recordings and he would give me detailed notes to go away and work on." Recorded in 12 different locations around Bath, Bristol and The Pennines, and finally finished on St Valentine’s Day 2005, West Country mates including Goldfrapp bass player Charlie Jones and Portishead / Beth Gibbons / Robert Plant accomplice John Baggot also lent a hand on harpsichord, while Norway’s Even Johansen (aka Magnet) contributed lap steel guitar.

Rich in distinctive instrumentation (including Wurlitzer piano, ukelele, mandolin, Hammond Organ, harmonica, Native American bass drum as well as drum machines, synths and numerous electric and acoustic guitars), but never overcooked, Loveheart draws from experiences of intense emotions with a deft and tender touch, displaying a breathtaking way with melody. Warm, and infused with rising hope even at bleak times there are moments of pure joy. The album grows more addictive with each listen.
“If there is a theme to this album, it’s really about finding the strength of heart to get through ropey times in life. I feel like I was led into a forest and have only just re-emerged. I’ve got my sense of direction back and am just going to carry on down that track.”

With the release of Loveheart there is little doubt he is back on the right track and heading towards the bright lights once again.

Bio recogida en wikipedia:

Alive In Wild Paint (formerly known as Goodbye Tomorrow) is an indie rock band from Phoenix, Arizona, formed in 2003

Since Goodbyetomorrow's original formation in 2003, from which Josh Johnson is the only remaining member, the bands line-up has undergone much change. David Roat was added to the line-up in 2004 and Travis Bryant was added in 2006 and came almost directly from Tooth and Nail Records now defunct rock act, Terminal. Matt Grabe was also added in 2006 and Austin Wilson was the latest addition to the band in 2007. They are signed to Equal Vision Records, through which they released a 3 song self-titled EP. They are currently touring the states with The Receiving End of Sirens, Emanuel, and Hopesfall and are planning on releasing their debut full-length album in January 2008.

On September 29, 2007, the group changed their name to Alive in Wild Paint, following the lineup changes.

Josh Johnson, former guitarist, left to join Hopesfall, as a bassist. He also is in C A L M.

Model Photographer

Es la banda "Undiscovered" del mes de Febrero de

Indie / Rock / Pop

United States




Alex Rose, Westin Glass, John Bagley.

Info en

Heartbreak and moodiness set to straightforward guitar, bass and drums. this indie rock band from Seattle is the pop-heavy side project of Minus the Bear's Alex Rose.

“Sans braces and a Led Zeppelin t-shirt, Model Photographer was much like my first date: young, talented, nervous, and about to steal my heart ... With melodies that promenade hand in hand with sultry vocals, each tune was sweet and sour with tales of almost love, likened to that of The Reindeer Section and Tahiti 80.”
- Versus Magazine

The story of Model Photographer begins with Alex Rose, a musician and recording engineer from Albuquerque, NM. His previous bands Mistletoe and Bum Out Patrol had shared the stage with the likes of The Breeders, The Shins, Pedro the Lion, Enon, The Decemberists, and Supedrag. Despite the local success, a growing desire to escape the home state led to relocating to Seattle in early 2004, where he began playing bass in a band that consisted solely of relocated New Mexicans. He also began testing the waters for his solo material by performing at open mic nights around town. Deciding to take the plunge, he booked his first solo acoustic show at the prestigious Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles on June 17, 2004 and received a mention in the LA Times. This was encouraging, and more solo shows were booked in Seattle and New Mexico.

Later that year, the solo sets began to evolve when fellow Mistletoe and Bum Out Patrol member Westin Glass relocated to Seattle and began to play drums at the shows. A short time later, the two found bassist John Bagley (formerly of Gracie Law) and the first Model Photographer show occurred on March 3, 2005. The band subsequently received generous airplay of a two-song demo on Seattle's KEXP and was featured on their "Music That Matters" Vol. 8 podcast which was made available nationwide on iTunes.

In 2006, with an album nearly complete, Model Photographer became a side project by default when Rose found himself busier than ever playing guitar with Heather Duby and playing keys with Minus the Bear (he had previously been their live sound engineer and helped record their 2005 release, Menos El Oso). During those tours, Glass found time to record an album as The Reformation, enlisting the help of Bagley on a few of the tracks and in the newly formed live band of the same name. Model Photographer’s self-titled LP is now available for the first time on compact disc.

Say Hi - The Wishes And The Glitch (2008)

Say Hi (to your mom) vuelve con un nuevo trabajo este 2008.

Indie / Alternative / Electro

Seattle, Washington
United States




eric elbogen and westin glass. but also sometimes just e.e.


-New York Times

Say Hi

In just about any other place or time in human history, a guy like Eric Elbogen never would have thought to pursue singing as a career, or even a hobby. He’s an inveterate mumbler with a shaky sense of pitch, and he looks pretty awkward onstage. But there’s something likable — sometimes lovable — about his indie-rock band, Say Hi. For the band’s new album, “The Wishes and the Glitch” (Euphobia), he ditched his old vampire fixation as well as the last three words in his band name (to Your Mom); the result is a warm, modest set of songs that hide their melancholy beneath sturdy tunes and lots of fuzz. Expect his cult to grow, but just a little., December 4, 2007 - After releasing four albums about vampires, video games, spiders and robots, songwriter Eric Elbogen decided to get serious. The multi-instrumentalist moved from Brooklyn to Seattle and produced a lush new collection of introspective songs called The Wishes and the Glitch. He also shortened his long-held band name from "Say Hi to Your Mom" to just "Say Hi."

The Wishes and the Glitch still contains Elbogen's quirky sense of humor, but titles like "Shakes Her Shoulders", "Back Before We Were Brittle", and "Zero to Love" aim at more personal themes about complicated relationships. Vintage keyboards oscillate giving an added depth to catchy hooks and slightly gloomy lines. Nouela Johnston joins Elbogen for some smooth backing vocals on the first track "Northwestern Girls".

As with his earlier recordings, Elbogen recorded the album in his home and played most of the instruments, with guest vocals by The Long Winters' John Roderick and Pedro the Lion / Headphones' David Bazan. Elbogen released The Wishes and the Glitch on his own label, Euphobia Records.

In describing the music of Say Hi, Elbogen says "we're the mumbling in your head while you're crunching the numbers. We're the apparitions, ticks, gut wrenching, suspicion and glee, too. We're the reason you rolled a nineteen for charisma, the cat's meow, your least favorite aunt."

La canción de JUNO #2

Michael Cera and Ellen Page sing Anyone Else But You from the film JUNO.

Letra recogida en

You're a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on you're back is the latest trend
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Here is the church and here is the steeple
We sure are cute for two ugly people
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

We both have shiny happy fits of rage
You want more fans, I want more stage
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

You are always trying to keep it real
I'm in love with how you feel
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body's swinging from side to side
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
So why can't, you forgive me?
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

Du dududu dududu du dududu
Du dududu dududu du dududu
I don't see what anypne can see, in anyone else
But you

The Blows - Upskirts

Pop/Rock/New wave

Vigo,Galicia, Spain




Alex Penido
Alex Lago
Roy Basanta
Loruno Mosquera


Información recogida en PupiloRecords:

Apabullante y arrollador. Sin más paliativos, escuchen y critiquen lo que quieran pero ésta es la realidad: nunca un debut había generado tantas expectativas previas y nunca antes ésas expectativas se cumplieron tan por encima. “Upskirts”, el debut de The Blows viene a confirmar una escena rock, post punk y new wave en Vigo que recupera el espíritu de aquella otra movida paralela en los ochenta de esta ciudad portuaria, gris y post deprimida, caldo de cultivo idóneo para desgarrar con canciones la rabia, sueños y frustraciones de una generación veinteañera más allá de los tópicos.

“Upskirts” no es una carta de presentación, es un tartazo en la cara a todos aquellos que piensan que la escena musical independiente en España está mil pasos por detrás de la británica. Su rock vacilón y sexy, emparentado con el de Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Talking Heads o más recientemente Libertines o Strokes, con una inyección de vida nocturna y unos aderezos de baile, convierte a The Blows en uno de los pocos grupos capaces de exportar su sonido sin vergüenzas ni envidias, no en vano, el propio Alex Kapranos de Franz Ferdinand les dio el beneplácito a su primera maqueta o Babyshambles, con quienes compartieron cartel en el Festival Paredes de Coura 2007 (ojo!, contratados aún sin disco en el mercado) aplaudieron su actuación desde el escenario.

Más allá de las comparaciones, la personalidad de The Blows es tan apabullante, que incluso se enfrentaron y desecharon las mezclas propuestas por Cristian Vogel, el genio que se esconde detrás de algunas remezclas de Mäximo Park o Radiohead por ejemplo. Su concepto de cómo debían sonar estaba tan claro en sus cabezas que no dudaron en regrabar y remezclar, repasar y volver a grabar, agudizar y puntualizar ellos mismos algunas piezas. El resultado: rock en vena, tal y como demuestran en sus potentes directos.

“Sin City Lies” es toda una declaración de intenciones: […] Find me and satisfy me […] Actitud descarada para una banda que ha mamado del punk en vinilo y clubes y que lo transmiten tal y como lo han vivido. “Damn 80’s Hooker” ó como se ve la vida después enamorarse una noche salvaje. “We Want You” es sencillamente todo un hitazo. “Clint Eastwood” aporta una etiqueta a esto de los géneros: western rock o “Disco” la mutante versión rock de una tema destinado a la pista de baile con las aportaciones electrónicas de Vogel… Ingredientes más que suficientes para convertir a The Blows en la nueva esperanza del indie rock nacional.

The Republic Tigers-Buildings and Mountains LETRA

Lyrics for "Buildings and Mountains " -From Their MySpace

we've been waiting all our lives
for things we've always had
but have no eyes to see
somethin' new is going to happen
the most natural thing
but nothin' we'd expect

all these buildings and mountains
slowly they'll arise
before our eyes

how do cities understand
we drink our wine and wonder
why we're really here
what's the point of even asking
you take the good and bad
and make the best of it


have you watched the cities move
does nature fall before
this age of industry
for today i'll let it go
you've been good to me
have i been good to you

Info sobre la banda

With a sound that the band describe as "half organic and half synthetic, kind of like how all our lives are now,” Kansas City’s The Republic Tigers have created a pastoral, yet modern sound, which bubbles along with just the right amount of electronic sparkle on the acoustic guitars, creating intimate epics that demand a second listen.

“Buildings And Mountains” typifies these feelings, with its shuffling tempo and soothing vocals, it’s no surprise that the band would appeal to music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, responsible for the soundtracks to Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl, The O.C. who signed the band to her record label. Mixing the right elements of The Shins and the Postal Service, “Buildings And Mountains” is sure to become a mix-tape favorite.

Sinnamon: (10€)

Con una pregunta de fácil respuesta, "Do You Like Rock Music?" (Rough Trade/ Sinnamon Records, 07) titulan British Sea Power su tercer álbum y anticipan lo que vamos a encontrar cuando pongamos el disco en el reproductor. Guitarras afiladas y un sonido más contundente para una banda que se resiste a ceñirse a una etiqueta. BSP rocks!

Bristish Sea Power irrumpieron en la escena inglesa en el año 2000 parapetados tras sus ajados uniformes militares y camuflados tras el follaje con el que cubrían el escenario en sus conciertos. Su llamativa puesta en escena y unas canciones capaces de sumar el aura melodramática del glam-rock con el descaro y la inmediatez del punk-rock, pronto los convirtieron en una de las grandes atracciones del circuito de bandas inglés. Tras fichar por Rough Trade, en 2003 debutaban con "The Decline Of The British Sea Power" (título con el que dejaban claro que más que a ínfulas bélicas el nombre de su banda hace referencia a su amor por la historia) y el Sunday Times les proclamaba como 'The best band in Britain'.
A mediados de 2005 llegaba su segundo largo, "Open Season" un disco más accesible en el que las melodías eran las grandes protagonistas. De nuevo, críticas excelentes les consolidaban como una de las propuestas más sólidas y personales de Gran Bretaña. Mientras, Yan (voz, guitarra), Noble (guitarra), Hamilton (bajo, voz), Word (Batería) y Eamon (teclados) seguían su camino compartiendo escenario con la misma soltura con Faust, con The Copper Family (un clan de Sussex que lleva más de 200 años consagrado a la música folk) o con cualquiera de los grandes nombres del pop rock actual, de Jarvis Cocker a The Flaming Lips o Radiohead.
"Do You Like Rock Music?" es su tercer largo y el primero sin Eamon, consagrado definitivamente a su otro proyecto, Brakes. Reconvertidos en cuarteto, British Sea Power han entregado el que es, sí, su disco más rock. Aunque para ellos 'rock' es más una actitud que un sonido. Como explica Noble: "Pixies, Litte Richard y Public Enemy son rock. Está claro qué es rock y qué no lo es. Hay muchas bandas que hacen rock y no son en absoluto rock". La grabación del álbum fue, cuanto menos, agitada, con paradas en la República Checa, Canadá y un fuerte en Cornwall, e incidentes con helicópteros, jabalíes y tormentas de hielo de por medio. El resultado son doce cortes en los que caben odas a las bellezas eslavas y a los taxistas polacos, un emotivo recuento de una inundación en Canvey Islands, física cuántica en 'Atom' (tema que ya aparecía en su reciente epé, 'Krankenhaus?') o una reflexión sobre los mitos de la música popular en los seis minutos de 'Lights Out For Darker Skies'. Un disco plagado de canciones tan poderosas como 'Waving Flags', elegida como primer single del álbum y que ya ha sido proclamado por The Guardian como la canción de los festivales de 2008 gracias a su explosiva emotividad cercana a la de Arcade Fire (de hecho Howard Willerman, ex batería de Arcade Fire, colabora en alguno de los temas). A los controles, Graham Sutton (Jarvis Cocker, Bark Psychosis), Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) y Howard Bilerman (Hotel2Tango studio). Do you like rock music?
