Dónde estuvo Dylan todo el mes de febrero?

En el estudio con sus músicos de directos grabando otra obra con la cual maravillarnos, pero para eso habrá que esperar ya que el disco se publicará recién en septiembre.

Los unicos filtrados son que fue grabado en el mismo lugar donde grabó “Together through life” y “Christmas in the heart”, en Groove Masters (Santa Mónica), el estudio privado de Jackson Browne.

Otro adelanto es lo que comentó David Hidalgo (guitarrista de Los Lobos) que estuvo en la grabación. “Es sorprendente cómo conserva la creatividad”, dijó Hidalgo al diario estadounidense Aspen Times, también habló de la influencia latinoamericana que tendría el nuevo disco. “Cuando le mostré la tres guitar (guitarra cubana de tres cuerdas dobles), dijo: “Wow, ¿qué es esto?”. Le gustó cómo sonaba, así que la meteremos en el disco”, dijo Hidalgo.

Fiona

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser
Than the Driver of the Screw
And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More
Than Ropes Will Ever Do

(La rueda es más sabia
Que el surco del tornillo
Y el latigazo de unas cuerdas sirve más
Que lo que una soga jamás podrá)

No es increíble que éste sea el título del nuevo disco de Fiona Apple.

Ella regresa despúes de su último disco “When The Pawn…”, lanzado en 1999.

A sólo dos semanas de poder disfrutar de la vuelta de Fiona (19/06 oficialmente), ya podemos escuchar el single adelanto “Every single night”, disponible en iTunes desde el 24/04, donde también se podrán realizar presales del disco, que contiene una ilustración de Fiona Apple.

Las canciones de “The idler wheel is wiser…” son:

Every single night

Daredevil, Valentine

Jonathan, Left alone

Werewolf, Periphery

Regret

Anything we want

Hot knife

Rolling Stone dice: “Afile su apetito para el nuevo álbum que se presenta con esta sabrosa balada”

The New York Times agrega “una mezcla entre el arrullo de una canción de cuna y lo vehemente. Fiona Apple tiene el control desde el momento en el que apareció en escena. Siempre ha tenido una parte de blueswoman, de oscura cantante de cabaret, de rock. Sus canciones tienen la erótica de lo peligroso y los colores de la desilusión”.

El 19/05 Fiona Apple comenzará una gira de 27 conciertos por Estados Unidos y Canadá en Ithaca, Nueva York y finalizará el 29/08 en Hollywood, California.

Si tengo un éxito en mi historia de relaciones es con la gente que escucha mi música.

Creo que van a estas ahí conmigo por siempre y estoy completamente satisfecha con eso.

Stone Roses

Sala: Razzmatazz- Sala 1

Fecha: 08 y 09/06/12

La mítica banda de Manchester, recientemente reunida, actuarán por primera vez en Barcelona los días 8 y 9 de junio dando contenido a dos Fiestas Oficiales muy especiales de FIB 2012, Benicàssim. Los conciertos tendrán lugar en la sala Razzmatazz.

John Squire, Ian Brown, Mani y Reni dieron vida a los singles ‘So Young’ y ‘Sally Cinnamon’ y, sobre todo, al homónimo álbum de debut de 1989 y su secuela, después de la interminable batalla legal con Silvertone, ‘The Second Coming’ (1994). A la postre, epitafio para una banda que revolucionó, desde su Manchester natal, el pop británico de finales de los 80 y sentó las bases para el de los 90.

Melodías pop -de Beatles a Simon & Garfunkel-, bailables ritmos sincopados con un pie en el acid house y un virtuoso Squire a la guitarra, llenaron de sólidos argumentos las excelentes composiciones incluidas en su debut.12 himnos que marcaron una época y que han servido tanto de banda sonora a generaciones, como de inspiración para cientos de bandas de todo el mundo. Sus fans les profesan devoción casi mística, en consonancia con los mesiánicos títulos de algunos hits del cuarteto como  ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ y ‘I Am the Resurrection’, o el propio título de su segundo álbum, ‘Second Coming’, en referencia a la segunda venida de Cristo y como símil de la cruenta lucha con Silvertone por su carta de libertad, que demoró durante cinco años el segundo trabajo de la banda y minó las expectativas de sus miembros.

Por último, destacar que la formación original, que ahora de reúne, visitó nuestro país, por única vez, el 23 septiembre 1989 en la sala Barraca de Valencia.

Kumbia Queers Barcelona

Desde Argentina nos visitan las Kumbia Queers con todo el poder 1000% tropipunk!!

Kumbia Queers nace como un proyecto entre una mexicana y cinco argentinas involucradas hasta entonces en proyectos musicales de punkrock. Ali Gardoki (integrante de las Ultrasónicas), la mexicana, llega a Argentina en busca de un proyecto diferente, no necesariamente de punk rock. Poco a poco se comienza a gestar la idea de las Kumbia Queers teniendo tan solo el nombre como punto de partida y en la cual mezclan toda la rebeldía del rock and roll con el sabor de la cumbia. Así experimentan con la cumbia a través de covers de Ramones, The Cure, Black Sabbath, Madonna o Nancy Sinatra. Posteriormente vendría la composición de temas propios y la grabación y lanzamiento de su primer álbum «Kumbia Nena!». Ahora nos traen su LIVIN LA BIRRA LOCA TOUR donde presentan su segundo trabajo «La Gran Estafa del Tropipunk», un extenso tour que empezó en Argentina, Chile… saltaron a Europa donde siguió por Alemania, Bélgica, Holanda, Francia, Italia, Suecia, Austria y Dinamarca, regresan al coño surf a Colombia y Brasil para volver a Europa de nuevo donde girarán por España para terminar donde empezaron… Argentina.

No os perdais el HURACÁN TROPIPUNK!!

BombaEstereo

 

Tras haber conseguido en Womex 2010 corroborar su consideración de ser la revelación latina mundial del 2010, Bomba Estéreo realizó una exitosa gira por España el pasado mes de noviembre.

Además, el pasado verano fueron de los diez artistas más destacados del Sonar 2010. Arrazaron en el Étnibal de Girón, en La Mar de Músicas en Cartagena y en La Semana Grande de Gijón.

Bomba Estéreo han sido realmente la Bomba del pasado Womex 2010, no en su expresión más folclórica sino en la más contemporánea. La energía de Lí Saumet, su enorme voz, su actitud punk en escena y sus letras comprometidas arrasan por donde quiera que vayan. La potente banda liderada por Simón al bajo y varias máquinas se distingue por fundir la electrónica  y el dub con la música tradicional colombiana, empezando por la cumbia, pasando por la champeta y llegando al bullerengue. Julián a la guitarra y una decena más de máquinas con la presencia brutal de uno de los mejores percusionistas y baterias de Bogotá, Kike (ex-sidesstepper) junto a sus coloridos y psicodélicos audiovisuales ponen la guinda final a esta banda.

After two years in the grave South Florida’s festival comes back to life! That was the news that Langerado announced earlier this year to much delight of Florida’s music lovers. Since Langerado was canceled in 2009, there have not been any suitable replacement other than few shows from artists nice enough to finish their summer tours in this part of the country. The festival is perhaps the biggest question in the world of music festivals. How will it be? Will it last? Will history repeat itself? Is South Florida really worth of having a music festival? can we handle it? All these questions will be answered with time and with, hopefully, all the support from the music fans.
This year the festival is going back to Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida on October 8th and 9th. There are several interesting bands in the line up, such as, indie favorites Death Cab for Cutie, Brooklyn’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and from the other side of the pond, Arctic Monkeys. As a music fan, all I hope is that people do show up, that all of us, together, show organizers and bands that we truly deserve to have a music festival and that we can make it grow and make Langerado as big as its sister festivals Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.

You can buy tickets on their website.

Here is what the whole line up looks like:

Death Cab For Cutie ~ Trey Anastasio Band ~ Ben Harper ~ Ween ~ Thievery Corporation ~ Arctic Monkeys ~ G. Love & Special Sauce ~ Clap Your Hands Say Yeah ~ Wolfgang Gartner ~ The Glitch Mob ~ Ghostland Observatory ~ Das Racist ~ Etienne De Crecy – Live Show ~ Portugal. The Man ~ Friendly Fires ~ Childish Gambino ~ Super Mash Bros. ~ Conspirator ~ SAVOY ~ Mates of State ~ Smith Westerns ~ The Whigs ~ Yuck ~ Metropolis (Live) ~ Keys N Krates ~ Two Fresh ~ RAC DJs ~ Lance Herbstrong ~ HOTTUB ~ Bobby Lee Rodgers ~ The Kingston Springs

Soyprensa’s adventure to cover the world famous Jazz Fest in New Orleans began as soon as we stepped out of the airplane that took us from Florida to Louisiana. Not knowing much about the city of New Orleans, other than that it had been hit by one of the worst natural disasters in recent history, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. One of the first things we found at the Louis Armstrong Airport, probably the coolest name an airport can have, was a huge painting of Armstrong playing among some of the other jazz greats such as Fats Domino and Thelonious Monk. The sight of this work of art showed us how this city perceives the art of music. Coming from a town where our home musicians are Latin pop-stars whose music is continuously looped through soap operas, this kind of respect was overwhelming and beautifully appropriate.

We got there on Thursday, May 5th, and tried to immediately make our way to the festival-I didn’t want to miss Lucinda Williams, who was scheduled to perform at 1:40 pm. By the time that we dropped off our bags and registered at the press tent, it was already 2. It was very discouraging to see all the people leaving the stage where Williams was supposed to be playing until 2:55. Forgetting that Louisiana is an hour behind Florida time, I erroneously concluded that she finished her set halfway through and that my chance was gone. With that feeling of a bad start, we went for a walk and ended up at the Gentilly Stage on the other side of the park. On that stage, halfway through their set, we found the local band The New Orleans Bingo! Show. With faces full of makeup, beautiful dancers, and great music, they made a fan of me almost instantly. I immediately picked up a copy of their latest album when they were finished. Next stop was the Original Royal Players Brass Band at the People’s Health Economy Hall Stage. This was a very traditional act. As the band played on the stage we saw several men in suits weaving their way through the tent and pulling up people to dance in the ever-growing line snaking its way through the tables and chairs scattered throughout the tent.

Our next move was to go and check out Galactic. As a general rule, I am not a big fan of jam bands. I usually find them boring and repetitive, however, Galactic put on a great show and pumped the crowd up to see the headliner, Wilco. Wilco took the Stage at 5:20 and played for close to two hours. Frontman Jeff Tweedy was in a good mood as he joked about the background of the stage (the silhouette of a group of people dancing), made fun of their drummer (saying that he was the only one who wanted to play You Never Know, simply because the song starts off with the drums), and playing a lot of their legendary album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Further highlights of the show included a sing-a-long rendition of Jesus Etc., a rousing tribute to New Orleans through Hoodoo Voodoo, and a stellar set-closer with Heavy Metal Drummer.

On Saturday, our second day in New Orleans, and first day with the correct time, we decided to do typical tourist things in the morning before leisurely making our way back to the festival. We opted for 11 am drinks in the French Quarter and watched a great band, The Smoking Time Jazz Club, perform in the street. This little ensemble played without microphones or light shows, but easily rivaled many of the official Jazz Fest acts and ended up being one of my favorite performances of the whole weekend. Accompanied only by their instruments and a couple dancing (I fell in love with the female dancer), they drew a big crowd that sat quietly listening to their music and watching the show.

Stimulated by the spectacular street performances, we arrived at the festival with our spirits high, thanks in part to alcohol and in part to the beauty of the city. The first thing we did was grab a beer and head back to the Gentilly Stage to check out country music’s Jamey Johnson. With wild hair that made him looked more like a roadie for White Zombie and less like a guitar hero of country music, he dazzled the audience and put on a really great show. Johnson finished his set around 5 pm, but we had already left to catch the last twenty minutes of the local boys Better Than Ezra. Better Than Ezra has been kicking around for some years and I’ve seen them on festival lineups before, but never quite made it over to check them out. I was grateful that we decided to catch the end of their show because I really liked what I heard. With a sound very much in between indie and mainstream, the Louisiana band had people dancing and singing along. After they were done, the crowd stayed put and began to increase in volume. The reason for this was that the Grammy award winners Arcade Fire were schedule to perform next. The Canadian band took the stage at 5:35 pm on the dot and, as now is customary, opened the show with the aptly named Ready to Start. After that, it was an hour of complete bliss as the band played their way through their catalog. After the crowd exploded with Rebellion (Lies) the band left the stage for a few minutes only to come back with a special guest, Cindy Lauper. The surprise guest was well-received by the audience as they went into an Arcade Fire-ish rendition of Lauper’s infamous Girls Just Wanna Have Fun followed by Sprawl. After they thanked the pop legend, lead singer Win Butler led the band to close the show the best way they know how, playing the now timeless Wake Up, and sent us home with a rejuvenated love for them.

We finished our trip filled up with great food and delicious drinks from unparalleled bars. We met the nicest locals and enjoyed conversations with some of the most pleasant and charming people we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know in a long time. We had the great fortune of seeing fantastic local bands performing for tourists and locals alike, and we even got to meet some of them. All in all, we had a great time at the festival and roaming around the city. This is a festival that everyone who loves music can go and enjoy, one that goes hand in hand with the city’s spirit of love, respect and protection of their heritage and music in general.
