Cover to krd-010 Khavn - Mondomanila OST

This is the 13-song soundtrack to the independent film “MONDOMANILA Or: How I Fixed My Hair After A Rather Long Journey,” featuring songs composed, performed and produced by the director Khavn De La Cruz with the help of electronica producer Malek Lopez and a handful of guest artists and co-writers: Rey Miyano (aka Ogo X) who wrote DROGA, Norman Wilwayco, Lourd De Veyra, Pennie Azarcon Dela Cruz, Junji Lerma (of Radioactive Sago Project) and Erwin Romulo and Mumuy-san played a bunch of guitar tracks; Caliph8 helped out in the hippity-hop beats for DROGA.

The album opener explains the schizophrenia of the entire project (and exposes the inconsistency of Manila as a city, in general) by juxtaposing tranquil bossanova with punk screamo. The remaining 28 minutes brings you on a documentary trip through the ugly underbelly of urban life by pitting lovelorn lyrics against stream-of-consciousness ramblings, slice-of-life vignettes of ugly characters against idyllic visions of a dream city, and syrupy love versus inexplicable anger. This is Khavn at his best, becoming a voice for the underdogs — the armless, legless, eyeless, toothless masses of Manila.

[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.
