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

It’s enough to make you stop and say, “What is that?” It being the gorgeous melodies and lean, spellbound guitar lines of Colin Caulfield, an English/French lit major who’s about to change what it means to be a shape-shifting singer-songwriter in the YouTube age. Just ask Bradford Cox. He knows. Why, just a year ago, the Deerhunter frontman stumbled upon Caulfield’s organ-grinding rendition of “Rainwater Cassette Exchange” and said it’s “fantastically superior to the original. It actually sent shivers up my spine, especially during the second verse.” Believe it or not, that chilling cover was just a warmup session.

As killer as he is at capturing the very essence of everything from Animal Collective to Ariel Pink, Caulfied’s true talent is in telling his own Young Man stories. The first chapter of which goes by the name Boy, a deceivingly-simple suite of songs about wanting to grow up without having the slightest idea of what ‘being a man’ actually means.

Now that’s a reason to hit rewind, from the tone-setting tenderness and psych-infused harmonies of “Five” to the restless rhythms (Caulfield was a drummer well before he became a singer/guitarist) and room-engulfing intimacy of “Up So Fast.” Both of which feature some of the most hopeful/haunting choruses you’ll hear all year.
And that’s just the beginning, of course. Since Young Man was conceived as a concept project about the passing of time, love, and loss, Caulfield already has two loosely-linked LPs on tap—a faceless collection of fragile characters that could be any one of us, really.
“A lot of it’s autobiographical,” explains Caulfield, “but it’s universal at the same time, because everyone goes through these things.”
Listen closely. It’ll all make sense soon enough. Trust us.

MGMT PUBLICA HOY SU NUEVO ÁLBUM CONGRATULATIONS, Nº1 EN iTUNES ESPAÑA, Y LO PRESENTA EN CONCIERTO EN BARCELONA Y MADRID EL PRÓXIMO DICIEMBRE

Hoy, 13 de abril, se publica Congratulations, el segundo álbum de MGMT que ya es nº1 en ventas digitales en iTunes España. Es su primer nº1 en nuestro país, conseguido en sólo tres días de venta, y demuestra que es uno de los discos más esperados de 2010 en todo el mundo. Congratulations sucede a Oracular Spectacular, el primer trabajo de la banda estadounidense que se lanzó en 2008 y estableció a MGMT como una fuerza visionaria en la música pop. MGMT acaba de anunciar que presentará su nuevo trabajo en dos conciertos en España: el próximo 16 de diciembre en Barcelona (Sala Razzmatazz) y el 17 de diciembre en Madrid (La Riviera). Las entradas para estos dos conciertos se pondrán a la venta a partir del viernes, 16 de abril, las 10:00 horas.

Congratulations es una colección de nueve viajes musicales de intensidad e imaginación inusuales y de enorme coherencia sonora y temática. Las nuevas canciones que MGMT incluye en el álbum son: It’s Working, Song for Dan Treacy, Someone’s Missing, Flash Delirium, I Found a Whistle, Siberian Breaks, Brian Eno, Lady Dada’s Nightmare y Congratulations.

El nuevo álbum se lanza con el vídeo de la canción Flash Delirium, un nuevo y magnífico ejemplo de la imaginativa propuesta de MGMT, en el que una peculiar y atípica fiesta de bienvenida desemboca en una situación demencial con claras influencias cinematográficas, con un final caótico que acompaña a la tensión del tema. Un genial y diferente vídeo, como nos tiene acostumbrados MGMT, mezcla de realismo y ficción que y que continúa con la máxima brillantez los de Time to Pretend, Electric Feel y Kids de su anterior álbum, canciones que situaron a la banda americana en la vanguardia de la música actual alcanzando los primeros puestos en las listas internacionales.

En Congratulations, MGMT ofrece una nueva visión musical y aporta al pop mundial su manera única de inpirarse en la música de las cinco décadas pasadas. Sensible y complejo, Congratulations es una sorpresa y un increíble paso delante de MGMT en su objetivo de revolucionar el pop.

Mas sobre Earl Greyhound (Inglés)

EARL GREYHOUNDis pleased to announce the release of Suspicious Package, a blistering rock inferno spun out of the Brooklyn trio’s inspired and innovative rock-n-roll imagination machine.  Suspicious Packagewas recorded at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica, under the nimble and keen producerly auspices of Dave Schiffman (Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System of a Down).

Earl Greyhoundformed in 2002 with the collaboration of songwriters Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas, who began performing regularly as a duo in NYC. All the while, they were crafting the unique sound and songs that would form the foundation for a colossal rock band. Their influences swept from the strident English three-and four-pieces of the 70’s, to the dark pop and heavy grunge grooves of the 90’s, to the transcendental, noisy acid sounds of modern rock.

In 2005, EG recorded their first album, Soft Targets, but they also hit their first snag when drummer Chris Bear left to pursue his fortunes with the band Grizzly Bear. Reluctant to release the album without a permanent drummer, Matt and Kamara vowed to play relentlessly until their dream drummer found them. Guitar player Kirk Douglass (The Roots) witnessed a show and brought his friend and Gold Crowns band mate Ricc Sheridan to the next few gigs. Ricc says, “I awoke from a dream one night, and I knew this was my band.” A few weeks later, a rockneck-inducing jam confirmed that the band had found its soul mate, and they hit the ground running.  Soft Targets and EG’s wrecking ball of a live show earned them oodles of fans and critical acclaim from The New Yorker, SPIN, Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork, among others. The next three years were spent touring the US, Canada and Japan as well as opening for Gov’t Mule, Chris Cornell and Saul Williams.

Suspicious Packageis Earl Greyhound’s sophomore release. The album marks a turning point in the band’s maturation since the benefit of Mr. Sheridan’s full creative collaboration. Listeners will notice a marked expansion into the higher reaches of the sonic territories. Heavy, dark, groovy and grand—Suspicious Packageis a reminder that though ROCK is still only a four-letter word, it can still pack a load of splendor.

Radioboxerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! 048

There are few original concerts in South Florida. And even less by local bands. Radioboxer, a local band that is rapidly becoming Miami’s favorite and best, did just that.  The band decided to have their first CD release party with the theme of a circus from the 1940s.  The show took place in a warehouse transformed to a recording and practicing studio called The Annex which is owned and managed by local celebrity, and leader of the great local band Humbert, Ferny Coipel. Coipel’s place was transformed, with the help of fans and friends, to a carnival/circus by Radioboxer.

The show started at nine in the evening of August 15th.  A big and very enthusiastic crowd gathered in great spirits.  Radioboxer’s members doubled as entertainers and hosts. Every member of the band was dressed up as a member of a carnival. Vanne (lead singer) was “The Starlet”, a kind of a femme fatale from the film noir period. Jota (bass player) and the all-purpose leader of the band was “The Illusionist”, with a top hat and illusions (NO tricks!). Keyboardist Gian was “Diablo the Daredevil”. Gian was one of the members of the band that had his own sideshow by spitting fire in the outside area of the studio before the show. The other sideshow was Esteban, one of the guitar players. Esteban was “The Fortune Teller” and he had a booth inside in which he read the Tarot and told fortunes to the concertgoers. Santos, one of the band’s guitarists as well as one of the band’s musical leaders was “The Jester”. And the drummer Tekilla 23 became “The Freak” by having black make up around his eyes.

After all the people settled, the band and the audience forgot about the Kiss-esque alter-egos and focused on the music. First stop was Boxwood. Boxwood is a local band from Hollywood, Florida who consists on only one member. Jose Bryan Ferrer is a multi-instrumental musician who makes up his music by looping different instruments and playing with echoes and distortions.  Here’s the thing about Boxwood, his music is really good. Boxwood was handpicked by Radioboxer for this show because of the originality of his music and show. The Choice of this band as an opener proved to be a perfect one. The audience never knew what hit them, and they were just amazed.

I was able to get a quick interview with Boxwood after his show. This is what it was like:

Q: So, What did you think of your show tonight?

Boxwood: It went well. People seemed to be into it. Got a good response. It felt good.

Q: How did this come out? you playing here?

Boxwood:  We’ve played in the past [With Radioboxer] and, I guess, they thought it would be a good fit. Also, as a one man band, my setup can be unintrusive. I think having more or full bands may have gotten messy and broken the spell in between sets. Either way, I’m honored to have been invited to open. It’s always super fun.

Q: What do you think of the event?

Boxwood: The event is great. RB did an amazing job creating an atmosphere and setting the mood for our sets. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. There needs to be more like this.

Q: What’s Boxwood about?

Boxwood: Boxwood is my outlet to make things. Hopefully, I’ll suck you into my world for a while.

Q: Why not make a band?

Boxwood: I don’t know, why not? Maybe one day. There’s still a lot more I can explore as a solo artist before I can move on.

After Boxwood warmed up the crowd (in a big way), Radioboxer took the stage. The band started with “Don’t shoot at me”, a song that they refer to as their “Power Ballad”. It starts as a ballad and it builds up to a high level of energy. After that, the band never looked back. They played all their songs from their debut album entitled “Radio Drama”. The songs are fast, full of energy and emotion. They go through several music genres: punk, boleros, hard rock and power pop. The end of the first set was marked by the ultra-catchy “Placebo effect”. During this song red and white balloons started falling on the audience and this just helped to raise the already soaring level of energy among the crowd. After a short break the band came back and played four unreleased songs. These new songs were the perfect taste of what we can expect from Radioboxer in the future.

After the show I was able to sit down with Jota, Vanne and Santos and do a short interview. Here you go:

Q: Where did the idea for Radio Drama come from?

Santos: I believe it was a mixture of Jota’s fascination with the radio as well as our love of Drama in every facet of our lives.

Jota: The Idea of Radio Drama comes from the golden age of radio. They used to do these programs that were like a story or a soap opera, and since the recording of the album itself was such a long and difficult process and the music is so dramatic, we thought the name was perfect.

Q: How about the Characters?

Vanne:  They are cliché characters from carnivals or a traveling circus. We like the idea of having alter egos. I want to be like Batman.

Santos: The characters arose naturally from different events.  Esteban became the fortune teller because he has a gift, what that gift is only he and his clients know.  Tekilla is a natural freak, Jota is a sly dog (illusionist), Vanne scares me, Gian loves danger, and I love to laugh at everything.

Q: You seem to be getting good reviews in different parts of the world, which is pretty crazy being a band from Miami that plays Alternative music. What are your touring plans now?

Santos: We have a couple of big events coming up.  The Hard rock in Vegas, and we’re going to talk to some people in L.A so we can book a couple more shows there.

Jota: For now we want to hit some cities in the United States like New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Chicago but we’re pretty much open to any proposition. Just get us some tickets, somewhere to stay, a venue and we’ll be there.

Q: What’s next for Radioboxer?

Jota: We are going to Las Vegas in November to take the show to another city and to and we’re planning to play some shows as RADIOBOXER and some shows as RADIOBOXER AND THE TRAVELLING BAND to keep working on our characters and pushing Radio Drama. Also, to have an excuse to dress up.

Vanne: We are also currently working on our second album, which should be coming out sometime next year. We are very excited about this one because the songs are so different and fun. It definitively has a lighter mood than Radio Drama and we even have some songs for people to dance to!

Q: Was Radio Drama a success?

Jota: I would say so.

Santos: It exceeded my every expectation.
