Babasonicos – Los Burocratas del Amor

 

Babasónicos is an Argentine rock band, formed in the early 1990s along with others such as Peligrosos Gorriones and Los Brujos. After emerging in the wave of Argentine New Rock bands of the late ’80s and early ’90s, Babasonicos became one of the banner groups of the “sonic” underground rock movement in Argentina in the late 1990s.

The band name refers partly to Sai Baba, the Indian guru, and partly to The Jetsons, whose Spanish version is called Los Supersónicos.

Wilson is a self-taught producer, audio engineer, guitar and keyboard player, playing other instruments as and where required (including bass guitar, concert harp, hammered dulcimer and flute).

Alan Parsons, well known in part for his involvement in Pink Floyd‘s The Dark Side of the Moon, was responsible for engineering the album.[1][2]

There is a deluxe 4 disc edition of the album, which is “a 128 page hardback book containing lyrics and ghost stories, illustrated by Hajo Mueller”.[2] In addition to this, the album is also available in stand alone double-vinyl, CD and Blu-ray editions.[1]

Tame Impala – Innerspeaker [Full Album]

Tame Impala (pronounced /tɛɪm ɪmˈpɑːlə/) is a band from Perth, Australia. It is the psychedelic rock project of Kevin Parker. They are signed to Modular Records. The band came to prominence in 2010 with the release of their debut album Innerspeaker. Their name refers to the impala, a medium sized antelope. They like to see themselves as “a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody.”

Tame Impala’s debut album, Innerspeaker, was released on 21 May 2010. In the U.K. its official release date was 28 June, however iTunes accidentally made it available to buy immediately (not pre-order) on 12 May. The album was released in the United States on 8 June to general and critical acclaim. Pitchfork named it Best New Music.

In an interview with Triple J talking about the album’s recent nomination for the J Award, Parker stated that they have secretly been recording a new album. “Jay and I have been recording pretty compulsively and album number two is nearing potential completion already and I’m so excited about it that I’m having trouble keeping myself from telling you all about it.” This comes as a big surprise as this statement was released only months after their debut album, Innerspeaker, was released.

The band has been busy touring during mid 2010, with their ‘Innerspeaker album tour’ commencing on 13 May 2010, as the opening band for MGMT‘s 2010 American tour. The band returned to Australia to play at Splendour in the Grass festival, which was followed by a European Tour in July (including an appearance at the Reading Festival) and a national Australian tour in October. In November they returned to the UK and Europe for a fifteen date tour, including their largest London headline show to date which was attended by Noel Gallagher, Tom Meighan, Sergio Pizzorno, Noel Fielding, Alexa Chung and Alison Mosshart, the band then went on to the United States and Canada for twenty headline dates including sold out shows in Toronto, New York, LA and San Francisco. They also received four 2010 ARIA Music Awards nominations which include, ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Rock Album’ for Innerspeaker, ‘Best Group’ and also ‘Breakthrough Artist’.

On 29 November 2010, Innerspeaker won Australian youth-oriented radio network Triple J‘s highest honor, winning the J Award for Album of the Year.
