Chiquita y Chatarra are two girls making an awesome racket out of the depths of Asturias. They will be releasing an album on Discos Humeantes very soon, and this first single is making us giddy at the thought of getting our hands on it.
After playing our GET BENT party at SXSW, these guys from Barcelona left a taste in our mouth that we couldn’t easily forget. So I packed my bag and decided to go to their hometown to film them playing on a rooftop for an exclusive episode of “GET BENT presents”. This was two days before they played Primavera with epic success. We had a great time.
Esta es la primera vez que en Colectivo Gurrumío nos lanzamos a escribir un artículo entero centrado en una discográfica, pero creemos que valdrá mucho la pena y esperamos continuar esporádicamente con esta recién estrenada tradición. Discos Humeantes no es una discográfica al uso, grandes escuderos del underground desde el underground en España, con sede en Asturias, desde sus filas nos han llegado algunos de los grupos más excitantes de la actualidad (en sus filas empezaron, entre otros, Mujeres y Juanita y Los Feos), aunque lo mejor es que siguen siendo una gran cantera para nuevos talentos y artistas bastante divergentes ética y estéticamente del tejido alternativo de este país. En este artículo no me propongo tanto hacer un análisis exhaustivo de los últimos trabajos de estos grupos como animar a todo el que nos lea a que no dude en pasarse por su web y su bandcamp para descubrir todo un universo fascinante, divertidísimo y sin complejos. Los grupos van ordenador por orden alfabético y encontraréis sendos enlaces para poder acceder a su música de manera totalmente gratuíta, ¡así que no hay excusas!
We couldn’t believe our luck when we saw Plymouth’s Gorgeous Bully was releasing another EP so soon after ‘The Young Obese’ then we heard it and we couldn’t believe our luck again, because it’s even better.
‘You Cant Fight the Sickness with Tea and Biscuits’ is a beautiful mess of DIY fuzz…
These past few weeks I’ve noticed far too many signs that I am now old. For some reason when I move my knees into a semi-bending position (or more), they burst a nauseating crunch - as if it were an alarm to notify those around me that I’m probably going to need assistance to resume a standing…
The ultimate party band, Mean Jeans, are blasting your ass to space on a Jägermeister powered shuttle with their new jam “Anybody Out There?”, taken from their upcoming LP On Mars. Download the power pop stomper below, and pick up the LP from Dirtnap Records April 17th.
Super excited about this upcoming Slumberland single. Ben from Fucked Up and Mark from Marvelous Darlings teamed-up to make some fantastic power-pop a few years ago and sneaked it out on some very limited cassettes. We’ll be releasing a 4 song 7” EP on March 20th. Stay tuned for color vinyl pre-orders.
As ever we are extremely honoured to announce our latest release. Best Friends are a Sheffield four piece that we’ve been fans of since their very first demos started getting posted around. Their debut EP was 7 tracks of garage surf pop that perfectly embodied hazy summer days and we’re…
So many great bands are leaving their hometowns to head to yours. Whether they’re headed towards Texas for SXSW, touring in support of a new LP or just because they fucking feel like it, we’re here to keep track of it all so that you don’t have to. Tour Tuesday will be an ongoing series of tour date info covering the bands that matter, so you can be up to date on the shows that matter.
From the prairies of the most exciting side of inland Catalonia, Furguson fill your head with melodies and instrumental progressions that mix kraut-rock with post-punk and lots of elation. They released their first demo (La mort del bon minyó) a couple of years ago and it won them a bunch of good reviews and the chance to play some important shows like the ones that saw them opening for Oxford Collapse or Beach House in Barcelona. Shortly after that, they entered the studio to record their first LP, “My Friends Are My Culture”, which was the second record ever released by renowned record label La Castanya. The producing talents of Santi García allowed them to capture the potential of their songs to the full.
