krd-007__Suavitys_Mouthpiece_STWLRTE_front_sleeve

Suavity’s Mouthpiece releases a collection of 20 singles from past releases, spanning his entire reportoire of avant-pop, avant-garde music. Most of this collection is vocals set to acoustic and electric guitars, ambient keyboards, swirling with effects and 1980s romanticist imagery in his lyrics. Reminiscent of acts like The The mixed with a little Morissey, Suavity’s Mouthpiece sets a surrealist mood with his mostly drum-free compositions drowned in reverb and delay.

The beauty lies in the simplicity of his palette. For example, in “The Rapture Incarnate” flutes, piano and strings interplay with strummed guitar as the singer swims in a sea of echo. In “I Call it Madness, but You Call it Love” every genre of music weaves in and out like someone switching radio stations.  It’s theatric, it’s neo-classical, it’s anything but mainstream pop. And that reason alone should inspire you to check out these 20 tracks from Suavity’s back catalogue.

[krd-006] The Brockas: In Action Action

(krd-006) The Brockas - In Action Action

(krd-006) The Brockas - In Action Action

What do you get when you provide eight chaotic filmmakers and artists with a rehearsal space and a bunch of amplified instruments? The Brockas. Fusing a neanderthal musicality with a cosmopolitan sneer, the band creates densely orchestrated noise art that pretends to be random, when in fact every microtone is pre-planned in their collective subconscious. In Action Action provides us with 42 minutes of post-punk, post-rock, post-apocalyptic, post-it sung and spoken in their native tongue (Filipino) mostly. The band likes to call their musical genre wazak&roll (“Wasak” being a slang Filipino word meaning: exploded, imploded, drugged, or drunk depending on the nuance). Discover their chaos and rawk out, dudes.
