Funeral Home: Funeral home (Ep, 2012)

Funeral Home EP Cover Art

Funeral Home no son desconocidos para los lectores Janglies. En Septiembre del año pasado ya aparecieron por TJB con un 7″ titulado Vera. Este Funeral Home (2012) es su disco de debut. Como entonces, el Shoegaze mezclado con el Drone, el ambiente claustrofóbico y axfisiante, así como unas guitarras plomizas y cansinas son los protagonistas del sonido de Funeral Home. Una banda a tener en cuenta.

Funeral Home – Funeral home (Ep, 2012)

“This Funeral Home release is one that I have been really gearing myself up for. I am a huge fan of everything the band has done up until now which has literally only been a handful of songs and demos. About a month ago the guys sent me an advanced copy of their self-titled EP and it has been absolute torture waiting this long to share it. I’ve basically had to sit on my hands to keep from blogging about it. But now the time has come, on the eve of its release date, and I’ve been given the go-ahead to unleash the storm.
Rather than pushing things into new uncharted territory, the guys stick to their guns and choose to tighten all of their screws and churn out an EP of tight, brooding shoegaze tracks. The centerpiece of the EP is an eight-minute song called “Sweet Dreams” that is in absolutely no hurry to approach its destination. The track builds and swells like a hurricane approaching the shoreline. It’s not until more than halfway through its running time that the track finally unfurls itself in gale force winds, burning guitars, and crashing percussion. And thinking back I’ve realized that this is just how Funeral Home does things. Their approach is meek and quiet at first, but give it time and it will down powerlines and uproot trees” (

French Cassettes: Summer darling (Ep, 2011)

Summer Darling Cover Art

French Cassettes son un combo formado por cuatro jóvenes de San Francisco con pinta de empollones despistados que se han marcado un Ep de lo más fresco y cautivador. Además de juventud las Cassettes Francesas pueden alardear de haber compuesto un puñado de temas que de alguna manera nos recuerdan a cierta producción de los Strokes, aunque con  más carga de ingenuidad, derivada quizás de su propia edad. Supongo que la banda promete mucha diversión en un futuro cercano. Además, su disco de debut está disponible para su descarga gratuita en su Bandcamp.

French Cassettes – Summer darling (Ep, 2011)

“The young lads of French Cassettes make ditties that are sunny and bright; songs that will make you want to get up and shimmy on the gloomiest of days. Every once in a while I come across a band that I feel compelled to put on every mix CD I make for the next three months, and this is one of those bands.
This Bay Area group formed when the quartet were still in high school, which wasn’t that long ago, surprisingly. In the short time the group has been around they’ve managed to craft a sound that is both poppy and refined — saccharine without being sickening.
For such a young group of musicians, French Cassettes really know how to produce clean, shiny pop songs, even flawlessly incorporating saxophone on the killer groove “Hands.” The shining gem of “Mouth Drum,” on the Summer Darling EP, features rollicking drums and a groovy guitar riff layered in with singer Scott Huerta’s scorching vocals. Having just two EPs under their belt, they’re already starting out on a gorgeous note. They’ll get your hips swaying and have you singing along with every listen” (
