GMS/FBW

“Vol.3”

“The longing for (inner) silence leads the/our being(s) to take the(ir) sound to the outside, exposing it/them as a natural/peculiar/idiosyncratic happening.

This sound is also influenced by collective unconscious – i. e. a global < > local society.

What are we to find in this transcendental process?: all/nothing, a receiver/Pandora’s box, feeding back this inner space which happens to be mute(d).

What are we to do if Monserrat Bustamante Laferte came out of the blue? Our amazement would allow this silence to expand in space-time, procrastinating an explanation.

All these processes/experiences/longings turn this album into a snapshot, a here-and-now portrait, a possible chart for adventurers, uncertain for our recent past, stamping our existence until the end of silence.

For this is no comfort zone approach: neither pop nor tape music nor free improv, but all of them instead, a García Canclini-like hybrid, pointing out an emerging possibility for our countries.

Who are these people?

This makes it even more interesting: deeply rooted in crossover practices, GMSs play cumbia on Monday, jazz on Tuesday, and experimentalia on Wednesday.

Martín/Benavides (M/B), one of the most outstanding musicians nowadays, accompanying Chilean acts such as Francisca Valenzuela, Chancho en Piedra, Los Tres, and many others. He is also a great performer in an extremely complex and mesmerizing instrument, such as the theremin.

Gerardo/Figueroa (G/F), composer and musicologist, participant in several Chilean underground scenes and venues from early on: radio shows, such as Musiclaje, and Pueblo Nuevo en Conexión Social; producer of singer-songwriter Camila Moreno’s early recordings. A sui géneris ol’ skool, chatting freewheelingly and unhamperedly with newer generations.

Seiten/Wall (S/W), young composer prone to challenging audiences with unconventional ideas and practices. representing the twilight zone where all sounds and formats meet. At present, he is also a board member of Comunidad Electroacústica de Chile (CECH).”

A.Moss – Carolina Raised

A.Moss – Carolina Raised
[BS450042]

A.Moss

“Carolina Raised”

Back in early 2010 a Charlotte, North Carolina based label Black Flag Records was kinda blowing up with the release of a DJ Green Lantern presented mixtape. That compilation featured joints from their talented roster of artists. Although there was lots of fire on that comp, one artist stood out to me with his unique and on point delivery. That artist, A.Moss went on to release a solo album and a couple features on other releases. After that… crickets. Not just from him… from the label too. What seemed to be a promising label, proved to be short lived.

Then at some point around 2014, I found A.Moss’ Soundcloud page and saw that he had posted something new! The new song was incredible… I was psyched to see that he wasn’t done delivering music. Then… crickets… for little longer. Anyway… fast-forward to sometime the following year or so when I tweeted to him an open offer to release music at blocSonic. Fast-forward a few more months… he tweeted he was interested in talking about it… and now here we are!

Today we kick off the lead up to his first EP, “Gravel King”, which is set to drop on July 19th. His first new release since 2010! Leading up to the release of the EP… we’ll be dropping three fortyFives featuring previously unreleased gems from his archives and joints he released via soundcloud. This one features “Carolina Raised”, originally released as “Who killed it” on Soundcloud and “MB”, some fire from the archives. So download it… bump it loud… offend some neighbors… but most of all… enjoy.

Hey Moss… it’s great to finally have you on board here at blocSonic! Thank you, sir. Can’t wait to release Gravel King! Welcome to the blocSonic fam.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

The Feminalz – Technoburlesque: Image Snatchers 2

The Feminalz

“Technoburlesque: Image Snatchers 2”

The technoburlesque show Image Snatchers is a series of constantly changing and evolving episodes, now already in its sixth season. It is a modern take on burlesque, packed with witty feminist-inspired campy and queer humour and often critically commenting on the current socio-political landscapes and events both locally and beyond. The numbers enact actual political figures, like Angela Merkel, Melania Trump, and the local culture minister on one hand, or more general but psychologically detailed roles on the other, such as a chauvinist macho, a slow-walking grandma, or an android with a drinking problem. The music is sometimes used as a ready-made and an important reference to specific past era, scene or its vibe. Lip-syncing makes an appearance too and so do electronic bootleg edits or remix tracks. Popular songs are sung live, sometimes with lyrics changed to various degrees, whereas at other times completely original music is made by the collective. Different languages have so far been used – besides Slovenian and English obviously, we had lyrics sung in Portuguese, French, Chinese, Italian, German, and Serbo-Croatian in one way or another.

Out of the three tracks on the so called mainside part of this EP, two of them are rapped in Slovenian. “Vrtnice” (Roses) is a poetic but outspoken take on dismissive attitudes towards artists in contemporary politics and public life in general. It says that artists (“we are the culture squad”) are needed in a society to make everyone feel the life in colours, with a present mind and heart, for “roses” are needed as much as bread. “Dnevnik” (Daily news) features a bunch of performers-turned-MCs, sarcastically and critically touching upon various aspects of daily life: abortion, immigration, consumerism, capitalism, and mental health among others. In the refrain, it features a French-Portuguese performer in the role of an immigrant trying to sing widely known Slovene nursery rhymes while threatening with stereotypical threats attributed to immigrants: stealing jobs, kidnapping wives, and corrupting children.

“2 FUCKING ANOS”

What are two years? Not much time, a lot of time. It is time. 730 days. 17520 hours. It’s more than the run time of a video game, it could be the entirety of a lifetime.

In this last month of August, NOUNOUHAU celebrated its two year anniversary. For us it is little time and so much time – at the same time. And in that time, time time time time.

We did a lot in two years and its hard to explicit it all in one text. It was a journey, it still is, always mutating and constantly evolving – with one foot at creation and the other at self-discovery, in a public fashion – work in progress style.

Now, two years is a numeric value, so let’s celebrate our numbers. All of our 23 releases present in our bandcamp, from singles to entire albums. Releases from more than 11 different artists. All of them with their work on our youtube, which has over 60 videos – ranging from video clips, lyrics, what-have-you. And how to forget our events? Three distinct events that—

Wait? Who cares about numbers? Or… does everybody cares about numbers?


Cheese – Barnaby Comes Alive!!!

Cheese

“Barnaby Comes Alive!!!”

Back in 2014 when Cheese N Pot-C first began releasing music here at blocSonic, one of my first requests was for Cheese to deliver a solo DJ / cut album. With turntablism skills of his caliber, I knew it’d be an incredible thing to hear. I long hoped he’d deliver but never pressured. Well today that moment has arrived with the release of “Barnaby Comes Alive!!!”! I have to tell you, when I found out about the project and got to hear it, I was giddy like when I was a teenager and first listening to one of my favorite hip-hop artist’s new albums! I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve been!

Yo Cheese!!! You wrecked shit! So hyped to finally drop this cut albulation!

“baixa qualidade v. 2 “

Celebrating our 20th release, we are proud to present this small masterpiece, the dirty and experimental “BAIXA QUALIDADE V. 2” (translating to Low Quality v. 2) from eletronic and hip-hop producer _isca_ ;

The project plays as a sonic fusion, throwing in vaporwave, chiptune, boom-bap – all with their respective distortions and deconstructions with amazing rhythmic quality.

An alien album, with features heche, fox, mestre chapeleiro and willy black — “Baixa Qualidade v. 2” defies the idea of a beat tape, playing with its clichés and resignifying them, with an unique personality and identity that brings us to the most different moments in the producer’s life, from his childhood to his adultship..

ONHELL – Linden EP

[STYLSS054]

ONHELL

“Linden EP”

Oakland based producer Angel Rubio-Hale aka ONHELL returns with his latest effort Linden. Composed over the course of the past two years, these four tracks capture the essence of his experiences living and making music in Oakland.
The unifying theme on the release is about enjoying life and each track is ultimately inspired by making the most of being alive by exploring the different facets of our existence. A prime example is the track “HIV+” created while contemplating his mortality upon receiving a false positive result from an HIV test. Linden successfully conjoins where ONHELL has been musically while also providing a glimpse of where he’s going. It’s this merging of his past with his future right here in the present that makes listening to this EP so exhilarating.
