Boogarins
Boogarins
Boogarins’ Fernando “Dino” Almeida and Benke Ferraz began playing music together as teenagers in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia – creating psychedelic pop in their parents’ gardens, filtering their country’s rich musical history through a very modern lens. By the time the group’s home-recorded debut LP, ‘As Plantas Que Curam’ (2013), was released worldwide, the band had recruited a proper rhythm section and were developing a name around Goiânia. Soon after, the group was booking regular gigs in São Paulo and across the country. Ultimately, with glowing praise from critics abroad (Chicago Tribune #9 Album of 2013) and a growing international audience, 2014 saw Boogarins circling the globe continually – headlining clubs and playing festivals from Austin to London, Paris to Madrid, New York to San Francisco, Santiago to Mexico City, playing alongside many great artists around the world.

The band’s second album, ‘MANUAL’ (2015) — was nominated for a Latin Grammy (Best Rock Album, Portuguese Language) and was launched in London, inspiring MOJO Magazine to award the group its MOJO Rising distinction. The Spain-recorded tracks feature a solidified four-piece with bassist Raphael Vaz and drummer Hans Castro. Celebrated Brazilian drummer Ynaiã Benthroldo stepped in for the live duties and the four would eventually hole up in a house next to Austin’s SPACE studios for most of a summer, recording new material in between a several-week Austin club residency, East and West Coast US Tours, and Iberian Peninsula tour, as well as live broadcasts on KUTX, KEXP and NPR’s World Cafe.

While continuously touring and recording, highlighted by global festival appearances in Central Park, Lisbon’s Rock in Rio, São Paulo’s Lollapalooza and Vancouver’s LEVITATION, amongst others, 2017 ramped up the group’s recorded output with a snapshot of their increasingly intricate live performances on ‘Desvio Onírico - Live 2016’. The band then continued to dig in further just a few months later with the surprise EP drop ‘Lá Vem a Morte’, a dark and challenging investigation into emotional and sonic incongruity. The acclaimed new material carried the band — once again — across hemispheres, culminating in a breakthrough live appearance in their home country of Brazil at the world’s largest musical festival — Rock in Rio.

Forever relentless, Boogarins are kicking off this Spring 2018 in the UK supporting the much-celebrated Tune-yards. A short Iberian tour follows before heading to the US for their debut performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival alongside the launch of their eagerly-awaited third LP.

MOJO Rising! “Brazilian Boogarins subtly update the Tropicália template by taking in acid-fried indie rock on MANUAL.” - Mojo Magazine, February 2016

“There is a Brazilian psychedelic-rock tradition, for sure. But Boogarins doesn’t sound beholden to the documents of it. It’s not a band of formalists doing homage work… “Manual” connect(s) generally to plenty of things: to the Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” recorded nearly exactly 50 years ago, and then to early Pink Floyd, and out into 1990s post rock and the current international neo-psychedelic map of bands like Dungen and Temples.” - Ben Ratliff, The New York Times, April 2016

“Boogarins have blossomed into a worldwide force beyond their native Brazil.” - Rudi Greenberg, The Washington Post, July 2016

“Even if you don’t speak the language, the message is clear: This is an album that is begging you to confront your cynical ways and reconcile them with the realities of the world around you, whether those truths are ‘good’ or ‘bad.’” – Consequence of Sound, 2017
B Boys
B Boys
Three psychos that came to be through fate by way of necessity, B Boys offer up to the world their sonic manifesto, No Worry No Mind. A relief from the mania, an expression of duality, an extension of Dadaism.

Born in different times from alternate altered states, these B’s convene on the astral plane, channeling the individual experience and wisdom from their respective points of origin into a singular entity. Abstraction takes a triangular form: vibrant guitar melodies, undulating bass lines, deep swirling grooves. Sounds that transcend a linear timeline, splintering out across multiple spectrums. Interlocking vocals skillfully bob and weave overtop, their mantras resounding. But don’t be fooled, they’re just like anyone else — they put their chinos on one leg at a time.

You’ve got something growing out your neck, my friend. Are you willing to hear its call? Open your Self to the frequencies and let the vibrations illuminate your being.
Señor Kino
Señor Kino
Señor Kino es una banda de surf punk o punk playero mexicano proveniente de Hermosillo, Sonora. Fue formada en el 2014 por el vocalista Karl Neudert y la guitarrista Carolina Enríquez. Señor Kino pasó por una serie de cambios, desde el sonido y los miembros de la banda. Continuaron componiendo canciones, haciendo covers a sus bandas favoritas, hasta que en el 2015 se integró a Sofía León como guitarrista de la banda, y Carolina pasó a ser la bajista y segunda voz. Con un nuevo nombre y una nueva compañera en la banda, los tres miembros consiguieron grabar su primer EP titulado “Para Bailar Mientras Lloras” en La Casa Producciones, en marzo del 2016, con la ayuda de un buen amigo como baterista. Este CD contiene sus primeras canciones originales “Verano y Playa”, “No puedo Vivir” y “Verde Pastel”, además de dos covers de sus dos influencias musicales principales, “Meta y Dinero” de Los Blenders y “I Just Wanna Die” de Fidlar. Sin embargo, después de lanzar su primer disco, Señor Kino aún necesitaba un baterista propio. Sofía y Carolina se conocieron en el Bachillerato de Artes y Humanidades, CEDART, “José Eduardo Pierson”, donde también se hicieron amigas de Ramsés Calderón, quien soñaba con formar parte de una banda de Punk y entró a la escuela de artes a estudiar música para perseguir su sueño, y muy pronto se convirtió en el guitarrista líder de Señor Kino, acompañando a Sofía como guitarrista rítmica. A través de las redes sociales, los jóvenes publicaron que buscaban a un baterista, y así fue como contactaron a Erubiel Cuen, quien aprendió todo el repertorio de la banda y se presentó a una pequeña audición, sorprendiendo a los chicos y quedándose como miembro oficial. Con la integración ya completa, la banda se dedicó a dar pequeños toquines íntimos para sus amigos; participaron en eventos con bandas amigas como SLAVES, Trance y El Día de la Marmota y posteriormente organizaron sus propios mini-festivales llamados Morrostristes I y II.
En diciembre de 2016 comenzaron a grabar su más reciente trabajo, un LP titulado “Limonada Rosa”, con siete canciones jamás grabadas en estudio anteriormente.
En 2017 terminaron de grabar este álbum, y fueron invitados a participar en la primera edición del festival Full Moon Groove. Actualmente tienen como propósito seguir dentro de este proyecto y buscar más oportunidades para crecer en el mundo de la música.
