ROSA GREGORI (ROSE KOHL) | October Top 5 Bands

Slow Loris

Es el proyecto de Wes Doyle, de Wisconsin, su nuevo disco se escucha en un suspiro de principio a fin, sonido nostálgico con toques de distorsión, reverb y psicodelia, sus canciones me recuerdan a un montón de grupos que amo: Pavement, Luna, My Bloody Valentine, Beach Fossils… pero lejos de resultar en un simple plagio o copia de estilo esta mezcla de sonidos que varía según la canción reafirma su autenticidad.

Wes grabó su último disco Routine Glow en su habitación logrando sin embargo un resultado que se escapa del ya machacado sonido lo-fi. El álbum que él mismo ha editado lo podéis escuchar en stream, descargar por el precio que consideréis oportuno y comprar en vinilo en su Bandcamp.

This is the music Project of Wes Doyle, from Wisconsin, his new record can be listened from beginning to end, ending too much soon to my ears. With a nostalgic sound with textures of distortion, psychedelia and vocal reverb, his songs remind me of many bands that I love: Pavement, Luna, My Bloody Valentine, Beach Fossils… but far from resulting in a simple copy of sounds, this mix of different styles switching from song to song proves his refreshing authenticity.

Doyle recorded his last record Routine Glow in his room, although the result sound more polished than the recordings of many others bedroom musicians. You can stream his self-released album, as well as download it for a pay-what-you-wish deal, or buy it in vinyl from his Bandcamp.

Cuffs

Cuffs está formado por dos tercios de los ya desaparecidos Pants Yell. El año pasado colgaron sus primeras demos en su Bandcamp, perfectas composiciones pop donde se escuchan influencias del pop clásico de los 80: The Go-Betweens, The Smiths, Orange Juice… Andrew Churchman varía poco el estilo compositivo de su anterior grupo pero gana en intensidad al añadir una segunda guitarra. Su single de debut lo editan ellos mismos en un 7″ de edición limitada que se puede conseguir a través de su Bandcamp.


 
Cuffs is comprised of two thirds of Pants Yell. Last year they uploaded their first demos on their Bandcamp, perfect pop songs influenced by the classic 80s indie pop: The Go-Betweens, The Smiths, Orange Juice… Andrew Churchman continues with the same songwriting style in this new project but the songs gain intensity by adding a second guitar. Their debut single is out on a limited edition of 300 copies, hand numbered and screen-printed in 3 different colors, you can get it on their Bandcamp.

Triptides

Este trío de Indianapolis publicó en agosto su álbum de debut, de momento solo disponible en cassette y formato digital a través de Beach Tapes. El disco es cien por cien nostalgia veraniega: sonidos psicodélicos, harmonías beachboyanas, riffs de guitarra surf y letras para seguir evocando el verano durante todo el año.


 
This trio from Indianapolis released in August their debut album, only available in cassette form and digitally via Beach Tapes. The record is hundred per cent Summer nostalgia: psychedelic sounds, Beach Boys harmonies, surf guitar riffs and lyrics to keep your Summer feeling for the rest of the year.

Black Marble

Trío de Brooklyn que de momento solo tienen algunos temas disponibles en su Bandcamp y Soundcloud, si lo tuyo son los ritmos de sintetizadores ochenteros combinados con melodías oscuras, te dejarán con ganas de más.


 
Trio from Brooklyn with only some tunes available on their Bandcamp and Soundcloud. If you dig 80s synth sounds and dark melodies, you should keep an eye on them.

Fidlar

Desde Los Angeles, garaje punk altamente pegadizo, al igual que las varias cervezas baratas que citan como sus influencias: fácil, directo y perfecto para levantar los ánimos en cualquier fiesta salvaje. Tienen un 7″ editado en White Iris y no me extrañaría que su próxima referencia salga ya en algún sello más grande.


 

Catchy garage punk from LA. Like the cheap beers they quote as their influences, their music is easy, direct and perfect for any wild party. They have a 7″ released on White Iris and I wouldn’t be surprised to see their next release out on a bigger label.
