Khruangbin - Cómo Te Quiero

“The video is about Laura Lee’s Mexican-American grandfather, Joseph Guillermo Ochoa, to whom ‘Con Todo El Mundo’ is dedicated. He’s the person who gave Laura Lee her vivid imagination, who taught her how playful the world can be,” says Sanam Petri, the video’s Creative Director. “In the last days of his life, he saw visions, as if he was in a different dimension. Laura Lee always wondered what the world looked like in those last days, what was happening behind his eyes. We made the video to take the viewer on that last journey with him, back through his mind one last time. One last great adventure of a grandfather and granddaughter. The animation style is taken from the covers of Mexican matchboxes which, as a dedicated smoker, we think Joseph himself would’ve appreciated.”

The Machine - Infinity

Based in the Rotterdam area, Dutch power trio The Machine formed in late 2007, inspired by 90’s/00’s stoner rock and with a preference for lengthy instrumentals. Since then, they delivered five and a half full-lengths and toured Europe several times. Through the years, The Machine gradually started moving away from the psych-jams of the early days towards a more grungy and aggressive approach.

Lugubrum - The Kiss on the Anus

More than any other band, Belgium's mighty Lugubrum exemplify this rabid creativity, while still keeping one foot in the shrieks and exaggerated vigor that earned Black Metal its global notoriety (incinerating houses of worship notwithstanding.) To the uninitiated or curious (or those put off by fire-and-frost breathing, corpsepaint-sporting blast-beater legends like Norway's Immortal), Lugubrum may be a way in to this most fertile and creative contemporary music. In many ways, the band break away from the tried-and-true BM aesthetic: their sleeve paintings (rendered by the band's guitarist, lyricist and assorted string player Midgaars) blend the surreal with a European folk art quality, abandoning the standard b&w band shot accompanied by an unreadable logo (the latter also usually set in a dark forest, castle or graveyard.) Their CD inserts are filled with bizarre and curious imagery, found photographs and the like, a thought-provoking aesthetic that's both arresting and haunting, and not necessarily promoting of an agenda of never-ending Blackness and anti-Christian fanaticism (in fact, they're definitely more about "Brown" than "Black".)

Snake Oil - Dying of Sunsets

As with previous releases, the new album draws from elements of progressive rock, psychedelia, and 70's fusion, but stripped down arrangements and the addition of vocals take this album to new starry heights.

Metro Decay - Το Ταξίδι

Το συγκρότημα ''Metro Decay'' έκανε την εμφάνιση του στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του '80 στην μουσική σκηνή της Αθήνας. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 1982. Οι στίχοι που χρησιμοποιήσουν στα τραγούδια τους ήταν στα ελληνικά και ο ροκ ήχος τους ήταν σκοτεινός, με στοιχεία dark wave και new wave.Τα αρχικά μέλη του συγκροτήματος ήταν τα αδέρφια Αντώνης Μανιάτης (φωνή και κιθάρα), Γιάννης Μανιάτης (τύμπανα) καθώς ο Κώστας Μάστορης (πλήκτρα) και ο Γιάννης Ροδίτης (μπάσο). αρχή έγινε κάπου στο μακρινό 1980 - 1981, όταν ακόμα μαθητές της τελευταίας τάξης του λυκείου, 18ο Πατήσια, ο Κώστας Μάστορης γνωρίστηκε με τον Γιάννη Μανιάτη. Πρώτα αποφασίσανε να κάνουνε ένα συγκρότημα και μετά να μάθουν να παίζουνε μουσική. Μετά πιάσανε δουλειές, αγοράσανε τα όργανα, επιστράτευσαν τον Αντώνη Μανιάτη, τον μικρό αδερφό του Γιάννη, ως κιθαρίστα, και σχημάτισαν έτσι ένα συγκρότημα που κάποια στιγμή ονομάστηκε ''Metro Decay''.Η πρώτη εμφάνιση του συγκροτήματος ''Metro Decay'' μπροστά στο κοινό έγινε στο κλαμπ "Κύτταρο" την άνοιξη του 1982 στην Αθήνα και η πρώτη τους μεγάλη συναυλία ήταν στη διάρκεια του Ανεξάρτητου Ροκ Τριημέρου, σαν support γκρουπ στους Birthday Party του Nick Cave, στο κλειστό γήπεδο του Σπόρτιγκ, τον Σεπτέμβρη της ίδιας χρονιάς.Κάπως έτσι δημιουργείται ο πρώτος ντόρος γύρω από το όνομά τους. Κάπου εκεί εμφανίζεται ο Μπάμπης Δαλλίδης και το φιλόδοξο όραμα του συγκροτήματος Μetro Decay βρίσκει φιλοξενία στην ανεξάρτητη Creep Records, αυτή τη μικρή αλλά θαυματουργή εταιρεία που δραστηριοποιήθηκε εκείνη την εποχή.Τον Μάρτιο του 1983 κυκλοφόρησε από την Creep Records το πρώτο τους 7" βινύλιο ''Σκιές/Κειμήλια'' με τα τραγούδια ''Σκιές'' και ''Κειμήλια''. Τα δύο αυτά τραγούδια των Metro Decay πλημμυρισμένα με Keyboards, κιθάρες και την ιδιαίτερη, σχεδόν ξενική φωνή του Αντώνη Μανιάτη, ήταν κάτι εντελώς διαφορετικό απ' οτιδήποτε ακουγόταν από τις τότε ελληνικές μπάντες.Το 1984 κυκλοφόρησε ο πρώτος και μοναδικός ολοκληρωμένος δίσκος τους και πάλι από Creep Records, ο οποίος είχε ηχογραφηθεί τον Νοέμβριο του 1983. Ο πρώτος δίσκος του συγκροτήματος Metro Decay είχε τον τίτλο ''Υπέρβαση''. Αυτός είναι ένας δίσκος σταθμός στο χώρο του ελληνικού ροκ. Ο δίσκος περιλαμβάνει οκτώ κομμάτια, τρία από τα οποία είναι ορχηστρικά.

In Trance 95 - Wave

In Trance 95 are a duo from Athens, Greece. They were formed by Alex Machairas and Nik Veliotis in May 1988 and until Nik's departure in 1992 they released two singles,one 12 inch and one album,while they also appeared in a number of compilations of the time.Their debut 7 inch,the double A Sided "Desire To Desire / Brazilia" was released in December 1988 and it is one of the few known releases of synthpop - cold wave that came from Greece in the 80's.After a period during which Nik Veliotis left to undertake other projects Alex Machairas continued with new member George Geranios in various guises including a subtle change of name to Itenef. A full reformation took place when they were invited by ex Depeche Mode member Alan Wilder to open Recoil's Athens gig in April 2010.But already from 2006 there was a renewed interest in the band that was generated through the increasing popularity of the minimal synth / cold wave sound in the underground circles of mainly New York and central Europe. The birth of "Minimal Wave" as a genre brought many obscure electronic artists from the 80's in the surface including In Trance 95. Many of their early tracks eventually got regular airplay at the Minimal Wave program of NY's East Village Radio and eventually in 2010,the duo signed to the New York based label.With Minimal Wave's help, IT95 completed the album "Cities of Steel And Neon" which is a collection of their early tapes compiled and remastered by the duo themselves and the label's founder Veronica Vasicka. In March 2011, In Trance 95 presented their album in a live set before Vasicka's first appearance in Athens during a three-day event dedicated to analogue synthesizers and D.I.Y. tape recorder music of the 80's.
