Unlikely Friends: Solid Gold Cowboys (Jigsaw Records, 2015)

Un soplo fresco del mejor Jangle, un disco de Pop con canciones en mayúsculas. Todo un descubrimiento a manera de súper-grupo que decidieron tomar el sistema de composición y sonoro de Guided by Voices. Creo que les va muy bien…

“Unlikely Friends is somewhat a misnomer, as it is a group of actual friends from the Seattle indiepop scene. Dave Krain from Boat and Charles Bert from Math & Physics Club decided that they had too many song ideas laying around and wanted an outlet for them outside of their primary bands. I was recruited on drums, and Unlikely Friends was born! “Off the cuff” is a term thrown around a lot when talking about the band, as we tend to do things quickly and simply. Case in point: this record was written and recorded within a few months of forming – and before the band had even played live! This album is all about fun and full of instant hits; if you’re looking for a musical point of reference, Boat isn’t too far off (though definitely not MAPC!), but Guided By Voices might be a little more apt. In the time it took me to write this paragraph, another song has probably been written…” (Press)

Pulco: Rodeo (Ep, 2015)

Es curioso como un personaje como Pulco, con toda la serie de álbumes y Ep´s que lleva editados a lo largo de su carrera, es capaz de sorprendernos con un puñado de canciones tan sencillas y eficientes como las que componen Rodeo, un Ep en el que te vas a encontrar cortes que tienen mucho que ver con los Pavement y Sebadoh de los ´90 o con el Brit-Pop coetáneo. Échale un oído y no te decepcionará… 

“Its funny how new music comes together! I was not intending to write a set of tunes with a slight country punk twist but there you go.
The fact is though that the music is more of a nod towards that scuzzy home sound of early Sebadoh and as such one of the songs on the new EP is actually a homage to their 1994 album ‘Bakesale’.
I decided to play around with open tunings for a change and the overall sound came together with the use of my new £35 Telecaster copy that I bought last year”
