Trementina Almost Reach The Sun Album Cover 2015

10/12/16 – Trementina – Almost Reach The Sun/ Kisses In Your Eyes Video – 2015

In this series I am investigating Chilean music from the past and present. One of the interesting aspects of this is the awareness of new bands from a country that most know little of. Unheard musical riches easily flounder not just in your country but in every country in the world, struggling against commercialism, fighting for attention, gems […]

The Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane Presents- Foxtrot Sierra's Surfin' Krautlifornia - Album Cover - 2016

Catchy riffs and odd little turnarounds, an inventive guitarist in Joff Oddie, punchy drums and bass from Theo Ellis […]

She is an altar, pay tribute to the visions and the beauty, the strength and the inspiration. She spits, penetrates the heart, weaves dreams, cuts your throat, drags you […]
