Strength comes from our bones – the knowledge that, deep down, nothing is impossible. 'Bones', the stunning new album from Young Guns, captures exactly that: it's a hymn to bravery and boldness, the defining statement so far from one of our finest bands.
The success of regional Hip-Hop is only as strong as the sum of its parts. For Houston, Texas the reputation of its rappers slants in favor of pimped out rhymes in the name of the late DJ Screw. For Dustin Prestige, his mission rests not on changing the face of Houston emcees, rather diversifying it.
"Drilling, screeching, rasping sounds, distortion and ominous drumbeats, inspired by 'sado-masochism' and 'confusion' from two former Texas Altar Boys"
La Mala Senda debuta con su primer disco "Bajo el sol... huellas" en 2009, captando rápidamente la atención del medio. Ese año, en su recuento anual, la revista Rockaxis pone a "Bajo el Sol..." como la mejor producción nacional. Fruto de esto, la banda es invitada a la celebración de los 10 años de Rockaxis, abriendo el show de Candlebox en el Teatro Caupolicán.
También en 2009, la banda produce su primer videoclip, para el single "Vívelo"
En 2010 se concreta la primera salida internacional, con la participación en el festival Altavoz de Medellín.
Growing up in and around Sydney's southern beaches isn't easy. As a general rule you have three options: You can surf, become a DJ or leave. Shitty choices if all you like doing is playing guitars and pounding drums. With the dire thought of becoming a bunch of disc spinning, fake tanned roidheads seeded deep in their psyche, five guys rallied together, branded themselves STRANGERS and began writing gritty rock anthems for the masses.

Josh Haden, son of bass-playing jazz great Charlie Haden, founded Spain in Los Angeles in 1993. Their debut, The Blue Moods Of Spain, was released on Restless Records in 1995. Born from the same L.A. alternative rock scene in the early 1990s that gave rise to Beck, Weezer, and that dog., Spain's music was a response to the then-current inundation of loud, aggressive guitar rock. With Blue Moods, Spain became aligned with the "slowcore" subgenre along with bands like Low and Red House Painters, but their sound drew equally from West Coast jazz, rhythm and blues, country and '60s soul.

Iceland's Soley Stefansdottir, or just Soley, has caused quite a stir in 2012. Since her first solo release 'Theater Island EP' in 2010 and the follow-up album 'We Sink' in 2011, she has built an international reputation and devoted fanbase with her delicate melodies and beautifully dark lyrics. The soundtrack to lucid dreams and childhood nightmares, Soley wouldn't be out of place in the dark fairytale world of Tim Burton.
The Ghost Wave sound finds itself somewhere between the Flying Nun bands of the 80s, the British explosion of the 1960s and the wayfaring dubs of Lee "Scratch" Perry. Sunny, loud, and laid back...
