Cryptacize - Tail & Mane

Cryptacize deals in the unforgettable melody, the forsaken chord and the extravagant sentiment. They offer a distinct kind of pleasure; it’s not casual background or ‘lifestyle’ music. Nedelle Torrisi’s surefooted and richly nuanced vocal arabesques, like a modern day Freddie Mercury or Ronnie Spector, strangely complement Chris Cohen’s guitar, maniacally sped-up a la Les Paul or staccato and funny like Roy Smeck or Adolph Jacobs of the Coasters. Michael Carreira’s syncopated drum corps rudiments and pit-orchestra rave-ups propel the songs with a refreshingly buoyant touch that never lapses into rock music cliches. There are also widescreen cinematic moments that take on a mournful and otherworldly pathos, like Henry Mancini’s “Experiment in Terror” but with vocals by Cambodian 60′s pop legend Ros Serey Sothea – or like Arabic diva Fairouz singing along to a psychedelic film score by Popol Vuh. Simultaneously happy and sad, pragmatic and mystical, hopeful and doomed,MYTHOMANIA (Cryptacize’s second album) is a revelation by anyone’s measure. The playing shows a new level of confidence and intent, as well as an artful sense of timing – it’s the sound of a band that’s found themselves and is growing by leaps and bounds.

My Brightest Diamond - Inside a Boy

As impressive as her list of recent collaborators, Shara Worden’s voice and arresting live performances have left audiences thunderstruck from the Sydney Opera house to Lincoln Center to the House of Blues.  She’s performed under the experimental-pop moniker My Brightest Diamond for the last seven years, and counts Bryce Dressner (The National), The Decemberists, Bon Iver, David Byrne and Laurie Anderson among friends and fans. They are just a few of the many who’ve fallen in love with Worden’s mystical voice and mythic storytelling.
Growing up outside of Detroit in a family of musical evangelists, Worden studied multiple instruments (her father is an acclaimed accordionist and mother an organist). She became equally passionate about classical and Motown, later pursuing a degree in Opera at the University of North Texas where she wrote and recorded original material for the first time.  After moving to New York by way of Moscow, Worden recorded three albums before joining the ranks of Sufjan Stevens’ Illinoisemakers.  She then expanded her  musical education further by studying composition under Padma Newsome (Clogs, The National), and turned out several scores for off-Broadway productions.

Japan In Vogue

Japan foi uma banda inglesa formada no ano de 1974 em Catford, sul de Londres, pelos integrantes David Sylvian (vocais), Mick Karn (baixo fretless), Richard Barbieri (teclados), Rob Dean (guitarra) e Steve Jansen (bateria). Ao longo de sua carreira passaram dohard rock glam de seus dois primeiros discos, Adolescent Sex e Obscure Alternatives, para um som extremamente técnico e experimental, com pouca ênfase na guitarra, de seus três discos posteriores.
De acordo com o livro Clássicos do Rock em CD (editora Azul, 1992, Brasil, página 95) "Sua musicalidade, então influenciada peloglam rock e a emergente new wave, foi gradativamente mudando para melodias e arranjos mais sofisticados; especialmente pela saída do guitarrista Dean a partir do terceiro album, que fez com que os teclados sutis de Barbieri e o baixo fretless (sem trastes) de Karn passassem a predominar no som do grupo".

Carla Morrison - Buena Malicia (Los Amparito remix)

GNR - Harcore (1º escalão)

Juanita has got a brand new car
I gave her the money
She's been dealing at the bar
And she jumps
"Que maravilla"
She's only 15 she's learned a lot
You know what i mean
You know what i mean
Oh you got to see her on the streets
Ai Ai Ai the Puerto-Rico girl
Mimi frenchy glass girl
Puts lipstick (traces)
All over the world
I gave her the permit
For her french service
She licks she sucks
'Que rico'
Oh she does it
Oh she does it
Oh you got to see it on streets
Ai Ai Ai the Puerto-Rico show
Marlene is the last of the Goering's
Tits full of cke nothing under the stockings
And she gets high
Conchita "OIGA" you do the smack
You're new in the business
Let's say at half past seven i want you back
All right?

Carla Morrison - Una salida Acustico

Les Negresses Vertes - Hou! Mamma Mia...

The Breeders - Regalame Esta Noche

No quiero que te vayas
La noche está muy fría
Abrígame en tus brazos
Hasta que vuelva el día
Tu almohada está impaciente de acariciar tu cara
Tal vez te de un consejo
Tal vez no diga nada.
Mañana muy temprano
Platicarás conmigo
Y si estás decidida a abandonar el nido
Entonces será en vano tratar de detenerte
Regálame esta noche
Retrásame la muerte

Um tema de 
Roberto Cantoral García.

Tom Zé - Tropicalea jacta Est

The Orange Alabaster Mushroom- Tree Pie

The Orange Alabaster Mushroom is a one-man band project by Ottawa, Ontario-based singer/songwriter Greg Watson. While a member of the Fiends (not the Los Angeles punk group, but a group of Ottawa-based garage rockers), Watson began recording his own, more psychedelically influenced solo material in early 1991. Although Watson continued his home recordings for a number of years and even placed a few on obscure psych compilations, the first Orange Alabaster Mushroom release was a four-track EP, The Psychedelic Bedroom, in 1996. That EP, which included the theme song/statement of intent "We Are the Orange Alabaster Mushroom," wasn't followed up for nearly three years, until the single "The Slug," backed with "Ethel Tripped a Mean Gloss," appeared in 1999. The limited-edition LP compilation Space and Time: A Compendium of the Orange Alabaster Mushroom was released by Earworm Records in 2000. Hidden Agenda reissued Space and Time in October 2001 with three new previously unreleased tracks. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Ultimate Spinach - Visions Of Your Reality

Ultimate Spinach was a psychedelic/hard rock/blues band originally from Boston. In their '60's heyday they specialized in lengthy songs such as "Ballad of the Hip Death Goddess", from Ultimate Spinach (1968) and "Genesis of Beauty", from Behold And See (1968). Since 1970 the band have largely abandoned the psychedelic sounds and have (since at least 1975) dropped all of the '60's songs from their setlists (with the exception of 'Ballad Of The Hip Death Goddess' and a few from the third album)

Animal Collective - Cetipede HZ

Já tudo foi dito acerca destes "animais colectivos". Mas este último álbum é bom demais para que se deixe passar em branco. Claro que reeditam velhas fórmulas, mas fazem-nos com tanto vigor que parece ser o primeiro disco da banda.

Cetipede HZ é sem dúvida alguma um dos melhores trabalhos deste ano seguramente. Transbordam cheirinhos de "Beach Boys", sempre presentes nos temas de Animal. Mas o Colectivo tem uma vantagem perante todas as outras bandas. Eles inventaram a sua sonoridade, intensa irreverente e apelativa. Para quem não viu, recomendo que assista a um concerto deles ao vivo. Não tem qualquer parelelo com nada feito actualmente.

Animal Collective são e serão no futuro uma das maiores referencias de muita gente que começou nisto da música.

Um conselho muito sério: Para quem não comprou o Coexist e que assim ainda tem umas coroas no bolso, aproveite e experimente este delicioso Cetipede HZ que é uma excelente porta de entrada para os mundo dos Collective.
