Antibalas
By Mandana Beigi
Security

Born and breed in Brooklyn, New York, this band is as diverse, complex, and captivating as the city that brought them together. Antibalas, which is Spanish for “bulletproof,” is sort of like the Ozomatli of the East Coast.

Somewhere In The City

Here is an incredibly talented singer/songwriter straight from Gotland, Sweden’s largest island, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Tobias Froberg is one of the many musicians who have been inspired by the natural beauty and peaceful lifestyle of an island that has long been home to artists for generations.

Buffalo Killers
By Mandana Beigi
Buffalo Killers

2006 was a disappointing year for the fans of Thee Shams (pronounced “The” Shams), who had to bid farewell to this pivotal Cincinnati garage band. Within months of the demise of Thee Shams, the Gabbard Brothers, Zachary (Bass/vocals), Andrew (guitar/vocals), and longtime friend, Joseph Sebaali (drums) came together to form what is now Buffalo Killers. With a name controversial enough to piss off vegetarians (and possibly, Native American, too), the trio is for the most part a psychedelic rock spirit with Midwestern blues/country sensibilities at heart.

Two Gallants
By Mandana Beigi
Nothing to You

Pulling their name from a James Joyce story, this San Franciscan duo began its journey a couple of years ago playing outside of the city’s public transportation terminals. Slowly developing a local fan base, Two Gallants managed to become one of the most popular homespun bands from San Francisco.

Mike Dillon’s Go-go Jungle
By Mandana Beigi
Battery Milk

Mike Dillon’s personal history is just as interesting as his musical background. Born and raised in Houston, Dillon was a member of the essential Texas bands: Billy Goat, and Hairy Apes BMX - though, his musical journey continued on with experimental groups such as The Malachy Papers, Critters Buggin, and Garage A Trois. Dillon, a percussionist by trade, re-discovered the vibraphone while overcoming drug addiction. Having no more gear to pawn except his vibes, he entered into his own special ‘rehab’ by learning to play Thelonious Monk’s “Well You Needn’t.”

120 Days
By Mandana Beigi
120 Days

This is the new generation of rock. In fact, if there were an electronic/neo rock revolution, 120 Days should be the ones leading the movement. They are the epitome of a sound that has traveled through the tunnel of time and been influenced by generations of rockers. From the Velvet Underground, Joy Division, and Kraftwerk to the Stooges, David Bowie, Primal Scream and Radiohead, this band reflects the passage of time, the classic influences, and the evolution of music all at once. They are also the first Norwegian band to ever be signed directly to a US label.

Oye

After nearly five years of silence, the platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Columbian rockers are back with Oye, their first studio album after Gozo Poderoso (2001). In the past few years, Andrea Echeverri (vocals, guitars) and Hector Buitrago (bass, arrangements) were both dedicated to their solo projects, which were well-received by fans and critiques equally.

Dj Krush
By Mandana Beigi
Stepping Stones: The Self-remixed Best

Japanese mixmaster/producer, DJ Krush (Hideaki Ishii) was born in 1962 in Tokyo. After watching the movie Wild Style in the early 80s, he was inspired to become a DJ. The next day he bought some “DJing” instruments and became obsessed with the idea of mastering the art of turntablism. His first band Krush Posse was formed in 1978 and gained him tremendous recognition as Japan’s first DJ to perform with live musicians on the stage.

Million Billion

Ready.Fire.Aim.

From packed residencies at Hotel Café and Tangier to frequent shows on the Sunset Strip, this LA trio has made a name for itself at the local hot spots. Gavin Bellour (lead vocals), Brian Ulrich (drums), and Yonatan Elkayam (keyboard/upright bass/harmonica) first played on stage together in 2005, and within a year, not only were they were able to build a strong local fan base, but they also set a release date for their debut album, Ready, Fire. Aim. (Mercy).

The Bronx

The Bronx

So, how about a band that shouts “welcome to your shitty future” and provides 3-D glasses to see them live on the “Bronx-O-Vision” tour? They claim that “[their] scientists are working overtime to ensure that optimum visual balance and musical gratitude are achieved simultaneously.” Their second self-titled album (and first major release) was recorded in a Venice Beach studio that was allegedly a former meth clinic where “vocals were tracked separately on a microphone that Hitler used to address the Motherland!” That is, in fact, the kind of weirdness and dark humor that makes you hooked on their music immediately.

Hello Fever
By Mandana Beigi
Broken Lines

As an indie post-punk band, Hello Fever is far from embodying the linear structure and sound of a three-piece act: a singer/guitarist, a drummer, and a bass player! Opting for a more dynamic line-up, all three band members contribute to the vocals and share the spotlight. Hello Fever – Chy Lin (drums, vocals), Sam Farfsing (guitar, vocals), Jonah (bass, vocals) – is a minimal indie group of untrained rockers who have built a collaborating platform in the creation and performance of their music.

Rendezvous At The Nightery

Amoeba Music, the largest indie record chain in the US, is launching its own label in April with three releases including Rendezvous at the Nightery from Brandi Shearer and the Robin Nolan Trio. The album is a diverse collection of Gypsy/Jazz tunes highlighted by Shearer’s silky seductive vocals and the Bay Area’s most celebrated gypsy trio. A series of dazzling in-store performances by the band prompted Amoeba to sign them and celebrate the debut of both the label and the record in the spring of 2006.

Nyco

From the Windy City comes this 4-piece rock band with a great deal of classical sentiments and training. Ted Atkatz, the principal percussionist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, founded the band while on a yearlong sabbatical from the CSO. He traded his drumsticks for a Gibson acoustic guitar and a Nord Keyboard to put a different spin on his musical energy. He wrote 12 songs and collaborated with the Chicago’s finest musicians including the trio who later joined him to form NYCO - Devin Staples (drums, vocals), Kells Nollernberger (bass vocals), and Dave Saenger (guitar).

Lying Awake

Tasha and Justin Golden first met at college in Cincinnati, where their initial attempts to play music together were nothing more than casual experiments. They soon began their musical journey as “Diving the Plunder” at a number of local venues. Soon after, the two got married and spent many weekends traveling, writing, and performing music while dedicating their weekdays to studying and finishing up school. During their senior year at college, Tasha and Justin recorded their very first album, which was originally intended to be just for a few friends. To their surprise, the number of requests poured in within a few weeks and the duo found themselves making more home copies that they could possibly handle. So, they decided to professionally master and properly manufacture the album.

The Loving Sounds of Static

This dynamic trio hails from Shutesbury, Massachusetts (population 1,800); a small town band with a big town sound! Selling more than 5,000 copies of their self-recorded and released EPs, Mobious Band wrote the songs of their debut LP, The Loving Sounds of Static, in the basement of their isolated split-level place at the end of a long dirt road in Shutesbury. But the sound was bound to break out of the 27square miles limits of their hometown and travel, so that you and I can get the chance to restore our faith in electro pop/rock.

World Leader Pretend
By Mandana Beigi
Punches

“This is my world… And I am the world leader pretend… This is my life… And this is my time” -- that was R.E.M.’s subtle and mysterious tune of the late 80s (and one of my all time favorites). Whether it was an inner monologue in self-reflection and self-hatred, or a typical experience of internal conflict, or a political shout about one man’s power and stupidity, the song remains as oblique as it did 20 years ago.

Four years ago, Tijuana introduced the world to the gang of Nortec Collective: Fussible (Pepe Mogt), Bostich (Ramón Amezcua), Panóptica (Roberto Mendoza), Clorofila (Jorge Verdín) and Hiperboreal (Pedro Gabriel Beas). The city that has and will continue to live under the shadow of both San Diego and the rest of Mexico is home to these five amazing artists, who have come together and packed dance floors across the world. And electronica hasn’t been the same since Nortec’s first Tijuana Sessions in 2001.
