White Fang: Steady truckin´for summer (Gnar Tapes, 2013)

Steady Truckin' For Summer cover art

Las bandas de Gnar Tapes, ese netlabel especializado en cintas de cassette (sí, como las que les pasabas a tus colegas para fardar de la música tan molona que escuchabas), suelen tener un cierto aroma entre el malditismo y el amateurismo, todo ello convenientemente aderezado por un gran aura de ruidismo y alternancia.
White Fang, además de tener un nombre no por trillado menos chulo, son otra de esas bandas en la cuadrilla de Gnar Tapes, pero en este caso, su sonido es mucho más “asequible”, y en algunos momentos puntuales me recuerdan a The Olivia Tremor Control. De acuerdo, no hay que pasarse con las comparaciones del momento, pero creo que tienen algo que ofrecer.


Four fucking freaks who are so truckin’ ready to shred hard. Childhood friends, White Fang rose to prominence in the Portland underground scene with their infamous live shows and social presence. Formed in 2006, White Fang has toured the United States extensively and has released multiple records on almost every format on both US and foreign labels. Combining their infamous reputation with their totally legendary live performance, White Fang is the essential young-man Rock n’ Roll experience. From youngsters grabbing their first instrument to oldies who thought they were jaded years ago, White Fang will ignite the musical spark inside of you and this tape, released as a split between Burger Records and Fang’s PDX imprint Gnar Tapes, is the perfect tape for you to roll hard thru the summer with, on blast, hella loud” (Press)

Jovontaes: Roll the dice (Gnar Tapes, 2013)

Roll The Dice cover art

A medio camino entre el Surf Pop y el twang de los años sesenta, en algún punto intermedio podríamos localizar a estos bizarros de Portland. Lofi instrumental para esta segunda cassette editada por Gnar Tapes.

Mysterious and prolific psychedelic skate burner unit from the minty hot streets of Lexington, KY return with their 2nd cassette for Gnar Tapes, and first with Burger Records. Easily one of their most breezy but hardest hitting releases in their wide and varied catalog. Made by skater stoner weirdos for skater stoner weirdos. This tape is like the feeling right before the mushrooms come on, as you stand on a dusty cliff overlooking an eternal sunset over a flat and wide cityscape. Spend your Summer cruising with your eyes half closed in that eternal sunset, your shirt flapping in the wind, as the trippy cool sounds of Jovontaes whip you clean. Enter the desert of the mind, roll the dice, and seek the oasis.  (Tracks: Burto Fernl, Cold Coffee, Know The Now, Cyclone A Late Bottle Blues, Help Moon, Don’t Die (or die))” (Press)
