The Big Moon

The-Big-Moon_Cupid-photo-01_credit-Charlotte-Patmore-960x637.jpeg

“The debut single from new London-based girl gang The Big Moon is an ode to ploughing on through the hard times. “it got colder every day; but I wouldnt change my mind”, front woman Juliette Jackson stubbornly assures over foggy guitars. The gloom lifts towards the end though, when with a hoot and a howl she declares “I’m a sucker for you”. Commit to The Big Moon now.”

Sau Poler

Sau-Poler-1-credit-Albert-Jodar-baixa-960x645.jpg

Badalona, a village close to Barcelona, is the hometown of Sau Poler, the best kept secret of the electronic scene in Spain. It is a recent discovery, because it was not until a yea ago when he started to experiment with electronic with the aim to express something different and have a blast. Before that, he had passed through instrumental hip hop and experimental folk, yet this time the bet was so right that soon, his influences, such as Aphex Twin, Four Tet or Floating Points, turned out to be essential pillars to define his music.

Now that he has signed with Converse’s platform Make Noise to record at the Rubber Tracks studios from New York, Sau Poler seems to have found his perfect spot to complete, the new golden age of the Spanish electronic amongst John Talabot or Pional.

Electronic music that has a soul, the type that can be played and that does not know boundaries, or as Sau Poler says “I cannot classify my music in genders, I just follow what makes me feel right”

Impregnated with the characteristic calm of the Calabrian bay where they come from and the frenetic urban scene where they live, Baywaves emerge with the same freshness as their music. A fusion of pop melodies with the spring sunshine, floating developments and sea-like reverb coats. Formed as a duet, and stablished as complete band in Madrid, the young group of four soon consolidated as a role model with their firsts auto produced demos and their debut single “The Freak Kingdom”, which attired the attention of the international blogosphere (DIY Mag, Sounds Better With Reverb…) and the national (Indiespot, Mondo Sonoro…) or even appearing in the Make Noise, Proyecto Demo or Villa de Bilbao’s contests.

Recorded with Brian Hunt admixed by Joe Walker from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, the Madrilian quartet mold their sound in four acid pop songs, bathed in vibrant guitars with fuzz, spacial synthesizers and dynamic rhythms following the paths of Smith Westerns, UMO or Boogarins.

The Suicide of Western Culture

tsowc_by_natalia_martin2-960x638.jpg

The Suicide Of Western Culture was born in 2010 in Barcelona’s suburbs from two guys whose passion for the low fidelity technologies is mixed w¡th the drones, the electronic, tes post rock and a radically punk attitude. Some of the names that can guide you trough the duet’s univers may be Holy Fuck, Mogwai, GY!BE, My Bloody Valentine, Four Tet, Dan Deacon, or Michael Rother.

After two albums with Irregular, a Catalan label, an homonym debut, and in 2013 “Hope Only Brings Pain” (more a compilation of remixes from their first album, factured by la creme de la creme of Catalonia’s electronic panoraama) the groups faces now their following step, an album that has been released in 2015 at El Segell from the Primavera, new home of the couple.

Yet, it is in the scenery where that amalgam of kraut rhythms, oppressive sounds, planning melodies and post rock emotivity melting with the visual aspect of TSOWC, a universe in which the religious images mingles with the Spanish civil war and insane taste for the macabre.
