Cinematic – WOZNIAK: The Space Between the Trees (Morningside Young Team Records, 2019)

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DiscoverTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“Wozniak’s new EP is a 40-minute exploration of the band’s strengths. It marks the introduction of new bassist Kevin Fraser, and across the 6 tracks Wozniak go from forlorn, gauzy meditations to roaring walls of noise with their usual intensity.
For this release Wozniak have worked with Simon Scott of Slowdive, who mastered the EP at SPS Mastering” (Press Note)

Three guys – JASON LYTLE LITTLE WINGS KRAMIES: 3ingle (Single, 2018)

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DiscoverTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“Three songwriters…
Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, Kyle Field of Little Wings, and Kramies set out to make the first ‘Split-Trio’ or Tri-Single’ as some might put it. 
With just one acoustic instrument, a voice, one microphone and no studio tricks, each of them wrote and recorded a new song. 
With Jason & Kyle’s songs both being recorded in their homes in California and Kramies’ song being recorded in his home in Colorado, the songs truly have a naturally honest & comfortable tone which almost brings a feeling of sitting in a living room listening to the songs being played live. 
All three songwriters, having worked together on projects and played shows together, have been friends over the years and have a lot of respect for each other’s craft which makes this ‘Split-trio’ a special one off release” (Press Note)

Colours – SEEING HANDS: Seeing Hands (Discos de Kirlian, 2018)

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DiscoverTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Seeing Hands.
Everything’s coming up Newcastle. Well, sort of. Things are looking optimistic for the city’s football club, thanks to Rafa. In Eat Fast, they sport one of the most exciting UK bands in yonks. And now it’s time to add Seeing Hands to the list.
The lounging four-piece are of a dreamier kind to local contemporaries. Gentle guitar lines lift themselves out of a sweet daze, coming off like Real Estate’s stomachs flipping on a fairground ride after a parkside picnic. Sounds tame, but there’s a definite edge to Seeing Hands’ music; a deceptive precision that’s hard to hear in a sea of lovely reverb” (diymag.com)

Joining – TY SEGALL-WHITE FENCE: Joy (Drag City, 2018)

Joy

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DescubreTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

El segundo disco colaborativo entre TY SEGALL y WHITE FENCE es un disco escrito enteramente a medias, compartiendo grabación y composición. Algo más que un mero juguete encaminado a la diversión, puesto que también compartieron gira.
El disco, sin ser ni mucho menos la quintaesencia del Pop, sí que ofrece momentos memorables, preñados de Pop Psicodélico (nos recuerda horrores al Sell Out de The Who), NeoFolk y algo de Garaje
Lo cierto es que la pareja funciona, las instrumentaciones son tremendas, y aunque la mayor parte de las canciones parecen apuntes (de nuevo la comparación Sell Out vía Olivia Tremor Control), en su mayor parte funcionan como un reloj de precisión (Please don´t leave this town, Body behaviour, Good boy, Do your hair, My friend…)

Facebook

“The unbridled rock & roll force that is Ty Segall met up for the first time with the warbly psychedelic wanderings of White Fence on 2012’s Hair, a fine distillation of the pair’s strengths. Segall and White Fence‘s Tim Presley forged a sound that reined in Segall‘s sometimes excessive energy and gave life to White Fence‘s often precious music box renderings of ’60s excess. Since they made that record,Segall has gone on to expand his sound into something almost arena-friendly, while Presley has gotten weirder and more unpredictable with his solo work and other projects including DRiNKS withCate Le Bon. The duo’s reteaming on 2018’s Joy tilts the scale toward weirdness with many songs that are odd snippets of sound, lots of Presley‘s obtuse guitar lines and lyrics that sound like they were left out in the sun a little too long. For the most part, the record works like a charm, with the sometimes gleeful, sometime ominous White Fence psychedelic strangeness adding creepy tendrils that captureSegall‘s frenetic energy and drag the songs into unexpected places. The gothic vocal harmonies of “Body Behavior,” the squiggly guitar solos on the very John Entwistle-sounding “Good Boy,” the looping drums that buoy “A Nod” are little bits of left-field arrangement tricks show how well their styles can mesh. There are also times when Segall‘s innate swagger gives the songs an extra boost, like on the insistent rocker “Do Your Hair” or the sly folk-rock tune “My Friend” that ends the album on a high note. So far, so good, but alongside the songs that work like a well-baked cake, there are others where they seem to be sacrificing quality for weirdness, and that’s when the album flags a little. The overly quirky noise interludes are an energy suck and a couple songs don’t go anywhere, like the draggy, over-cooked “She Is Gold” where they indulge their most meandering tendencies, or the off-putting “Tommy’s Place,” which comes off like it was deep fried in whimsy. These less interesting, less well-formed moments leave the listener wondering if the album really needed to be 15 songs long. A few judicious cuts here and there and it would have been a very strong extended play instead of an uneven album that doesn’t quite reach the level the duo attained on Hair. It’s still worth checking out for fans of either artist, though, especially if their eccentric natures are the main attraction” (All Music)

Clasicismo – GRUFF RHYS: Babelsberg (Rough Trade, 2018)

Babelsberg

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DescubreTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

La verdad es que el arranque de clasicismo y las ganas de añadir orquestaciones a sus temas le ha venido muy bien a Gruff Rhys para publicar su último trabajo, este Babelsberg, un disco que si bien no pasará a la historia como lo mejor que el galés haya publicado en solitario o con SFA, sí que es un acercamiento interesante a ese Pop Barroco con ciertas ínfulas de crooner al que ya se había acercado puntualmente en otras ocasiones, y que deja en este disco algunos ejemplos de máxima belleza: Oh Dear!, Frontier man, Limited edition heart, Take that callSelfies in the sunset… son canciones perfectas para disfrutar en un café al sol otoñal.

“Babelsberg is the fifth album by Gruff Rhys, his first record for Rough Trade since 2007’s classicCandylion. The album features orchestral scores by Swansea based composer Stephen McNeff and the incredible work of the 72 piece BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The result is Gruff’s best record to date – a ten song gazetteer of modern times, each track set to timeless, indelible melody. Amazingly, for a collection of songs written over two years ago, each one seems to pull very sharp focus on the times we’re living in” (Rough Trade)

In the Beat – THE IN THE OUT: The In The Out (2019)

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DescubreTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“This debut release from Melbourne 4 piece THE IN THE OUT is a remarkable first LP effort. Stand out tracks include the gritty opener ‘Do You Wanna’ and epic psych rocker ‘Heat’, to the softer alt-country embellished ‘Birds’ and the electronic introspective of ‘Slow’.
Album closer ‘Hid In The Beat’ delivers an intense crescendo to finish what is an impressive mix of psych pop / Manchester inspired rock” (Press)

It´s raining outside – THE PERFECT ENGLISH WEATHER: Don´t you wanna feel the rain? (Matinée, 2018)

Don't You Wanna Feel The Rain? CD

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DescubreTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“The Perfect English Weather are a husband and wife duo from Brighton, England, whose musical journey began in the late 1980s as part of the indie-chart regulars The Popguns. Perched on a melodic precipice at the frayed edges of indiedom, their “beautiful, slightly melancholic pop” has drawn comparisons to Everything But The Girl and more recently St Etienne. BBC 6 Music Radio seems to agree, with their songs receiving repeated airplay on the Gideon Coe and Steve Lamacq shows.
The new album “Don’t You Wanna Feel The Rain?” is at heart a story of adulthood, with songs meandering around themes of travel and work, family and reminiscence, togetherness and separation. The album’s journey of soundscapes sets out from London City bars through to memories of Ibiza nights, a freezing Warsaw winter and endless air travel, before finally settling in the rivers of Nova Scotia. Reflecting the various locations, situations and characters, the musical styles move in and out of guitar pop, moody electronica and the bare acoustic. The songs’ protagonists may change but the narrative flows consistently throughout, taking the listener through a personal history of estrangement and reunion” (Matinée Recordings)

No Fails – LOS MARCIANOS: Nuevo orden cósmico (Clifford, 2018)

#TheJangleBox #RememberTheJangleBox #PopEspañolTheJangleBox

LOS MARCIANOS  están en pleno proceso de madurez musical y compositiva. Sus presupuestos sonoros son sencillos y directos: Power-Pop de guitarras con grandes dosis de Noise y distorsión y cierto aire de desencanto en sus letras. Vamos, la fórmula infalible del Indie-Rock de toda la vida desde los tiempos de JMC, Pixies o Lemonheads.

“Corren nuevos tiempos para el pop y LOS MARCIANOS se apuntan a contribuir con sus canciones, estribillos, melodías, ruido e historias. Todo ello se puede encontrar en Nuevo Orden Cósmico (Clifford Records, 2018), una nueva entrega en formato 10″ en el que la banda viguesa nos pasea por pasajes un poco más oscuros que en su anterior trabajo, pero sin perder esos estribillos pegadizos tan marcadamente pop y el desenfado tan propio al que nos tienen acostumbrados. Producidos por Carlos Hernández (Los Planetas, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, Airbag…) LOS MARCIANOS nos cuestan historias universales, envueltas en mágicas melodías y en muros de guitarras que demuestran que la banda se siente cómoda en el noise pop y el shoegaze, y que destina a este Mini-LP a formar parte de las estanterías de fans de Jesus And Mary Chain, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, The Cure o Los Planetas” (Ibán Marciano)

Luminiscencias – TEEN DAZE: Bioluminiscence (Flora, 2019)

#TheJangleBox #NovedadesTheJangleBox #DescubreTheJangleBox#RememberTheJangleBox

“Striking a balance between the digital and the natural has always been one of the main purposes of Jamison Isaak’s, Teen Daze project. BIOLUMINESCENCE, the producers’ sixth proper full-length, is perhaps his most cohesive example of this. At times cinematic and atmospheric, and at others pulsing and danceable, the album weaves its way through eight deeply emotional, melodic tracks. For every synthesized noise you hear, there is the sound of a rock hitting water; digital synths are paired with the sound of the Pacific Ocean. This album attempts to find a harmony between those two worlds, and with this in mind, Bioluminescence becomes a very fitting title” (Press)
