Santiago Córdoba | Doroja: Argentine musician Santiago Córdoba's third album, Doroja, was recorded in partnership with the mythical Indians The Bauls of Bengal at Hansadhwani Studio, located in the city of Calcutta, India. The album was conceived before the pandemic, during Santiago's residency in the mystical Indian city, where he landed with only a synthesizer and a bombo leguero (a kind of Argentine bass drum). The Bauls of Bengal is a West Bengali tribe who believe that freedom is not limited to gender or religion; an excellent starting point for the sound development that we can appreciate in “Doroja” and that introduces us to an intense and psychedelic trance. Throughout the songs, the album brings together traditional Bauls songs and instrumental improvisations based on a mixture of the local rhythm Jhumur with bass drum leguero, in addition to other compositions performed together in the studio. In addition to the streaming album, Santiago and The Bauls of Bengal have released music video for the song 'Manush Gache Ekbar'.
I Am a Rocketship | Lies and Legends: American-Swedish indie pop outfit I Am a Rocketship have released their new album 'Lies and Legends', their most ambitious offering to date, following well-received singles 'Fever Dream' and 'What's This For'. The new 'Lies and Legends' album is comprised of ten songs about the appeal, in trying times, of lies and legends over reason and love. They give people hope, a feeling of belonging, and frequently, a license to do terrible things in the name of their belief. "When facts are scary, people turn to belief. I guess these are songs about faith, how it can be comforting, but blinding," says guitarist and programmer Eric Weissinger. Via Black / Blue.

A history of Industrial music in 45 songs: Critic Simon Reynolds once said that being a Throbbing Gristle fan was “like enrolling in a university course of cultural extremism.” That’s an apt way to understand industrial music in its genesis. The sound and shape of industrial music has changed and evolved in countless ways since Throbbing Gristle first emerged in the 1970s, to the extent that the genre’s name has often been understood, if erroneously, as a description of its sound. Clanging metal, harsh noise, heavy pulsing rhythms—this is how we often understand industrial music, through the dancefloor terror of Skinny Puppy, the machine-metal of Ministry, or the artful cacophony of Einsturzende Neubauten. But over time it spread to farther extremes—sound collage, pure noise—while also infiltrating pop music. Treble tells the compelling history of this loved, but often misunderstood, style in 45 songs. Via Treble.
Marinas Found | Tudo que Ela Tenta Fazer: Marinas Found's third single from 2021, ‘Tudo que Ela Tenta Fazer’ (Everything she tries to do), talks about women, who are invisible, despised and not properly recognized for their efforts, whether for their relationships, with family, at work or in everyday life. Addressing topics as personal and social aspirations, Marinas Found makes an energetic hardcore/punk/pop punk that recalls the renowned bands of the genre in the 90s and 00s. Formed by four friends from the city of Pelotas (Brazil) in 2014, the band released their first album in 2017 and the second, Ansiolithic, in 2019. The band's last work brought a greater depth sonically and lyrically, which made the band have a greater expression in the Brazilian underground scene. Listen to Tudo que Ela Tenta Fazer.
