With a sound that’s best played loud, a solid beat that brings to mind rockers ZZ Top, the Mexican rock band Canibales, on the Canadian label The Grizzlar, and their new EP Rocanrol are a bullet on the charts.

 

Canibales are a 4 piece Rock n Roll powerhouse based in Guadalajara, Mexico. From Jalisco's capital city, they present the perfect mixture of heat, noise and inspiration in this 5 track Spanish language EP.

Anchored in the classics, Canibales works the ground broken by Motorhead, Motley Crue, Zeke and The Hellacopters to make Rock n Roll with a punk perspective.


Recorded beside a scrapyard in one of Edmonton, Alberta's many industrial zones, 'Rocanrol' delivers a refined sense of danger. From his Negative Space Studio, producer Jed Gauthier (Counterfeit Jeans) captured the sound of Rocanrol on tour: Loud, Live and in one take.

Turning Wheels' Monad - Self release 

Monad, Eshchar Nachmany's musical project started in an isolated house in the Moshav, a small town in his native Israel, in an avocado grove by the sea.


With a lot of time to himself Nachmany started to build a studio from scratch. Initially, he set out to make music with little to no knowledge of recording and producing techniques and knowing very little about audio equipment.

He acquired some old broken tape machines and synths and more out of curiosity than anything, he was able to bring them back to life and turn them into a vital part of an innovative puzzle. Through trial and experimentation Monad's sound was shaped and constructed from layers of hazy daydreams, creating a surrealistic atmosphere that he would get lost in.

MONAD's musical influences come from different but not conflicting worlds with electronic influences from Flying Lotus and some Gil Scott Heron thrown in for good measure, he produces a kaleidoscope of Retro-Futurism.

'Turning Wheels' is taken from Monad's debut EP which is set to be released this Summer, it was recorded, produced and mixed by Nachmany with a little help from his friends, the EP deals with a change in mind and music, influenced by personal events and special experiences.

During a visit to Primavera Sound Festival in Spain, Nachmany met British Dream Pop duo AR Kane, after an adventurous night he was invited to their performance which exposed him to Shoegaze and Dream Pop which then went on to deeply influence his sound.

As a touring act, Nachmany plays alongside Ittamar Erb (Drums), Daniel Spitzer (Bass), Shay Zagreba (Guitars) and Yuval Geva (Keyboard and Samples).
