Worship The Sun

Allah Las

The summer lasts longer when you listen to Allah Las. This quartet whose members met in LA record store Amoeba are back with their second studio offering. There is an elegant 60s melodic buzz on the songs that will remind you of bands like Love and the like. They stay away from standard easy psychedelia and while the tunes are simple, they really showcase these guys’ song-writing talent. For those of you who like a mixture of folk, rock, pop and surf music.

King Tuff Black Moon Spell

King Tuff Black Moon Spell

We have recently been treated to a whole bunch of American musicians who can do just about anything with a rock melody. King Tuff is not up there Ty Segall but he still masters the mixing of a lot of different styles with fuzz rock. This album is a skipping lively beast that mixes classic sounds (Rainbow´s Run and Beautiful thing), loud stuff (Black Moon Spell and Magic Mirror) and some pacy tunes (Black Holes in Stereo).

Joseba Irazoki eta lagunak

Joseba Irazoki eta lagunak

Joseba Irazoki is just one of those musicians that just can’t sit still. Fresh from touring to promote the solo record Oso banda, he’s back with a new record with a full band this time around. Powerful songs with complex arrangements, lots of time changes and repetition are the backbone of this record. He’s really worked on his voice on this one, as special as it is good.

Moon Hooch

This is cave music

Just as indicated by the name of the record, the Moon Hooch trio play cave music. The group is made up of two saxophone players and a drummer. If on their first release in 2013 they drove us wild with the very danceable Number, well, they are back with more of the same with songs like EWI. They started out in the subway in New York and they are currently to be found in any dancehall cave.

Bonfire Beach

Bonfire Beach

Bonfire Beach is a new side project by Magic Wands’ front man Dexy Valentine. If we look a little closer, we’ll pick up references of the likes of Spacemen 3, Bikini Kill, Dum Dum Girls and My Bloodie Valentine. Spit u out opens up this 11-track album and it’s certainly the most intense. That’s followed by Black Tinted Moonlight others of the same hypnotic ilk. Hope you are sitting comfortably for the trip.

Even the sun will burn

Iska Dhaaf

If you think we’ve overdosed on two-member bands, well, you’re wrong. Musicians Iska Dhaaf Nathan Quiroga and Benjamin Verdoes make up this group and they really want to shred the aforementioned idea of there being too many two-piece bands. They are no hard rock merchants, but rather they use rock
ambience and flashes of pop to construct their songs. They show more character than most indie music on songs like Happiness and Everybody knows.
