One of those things that are to a Friday like Paracetamol to a hungover. Your eyes will take their time to comprehend the grandiosity of new Tepr‘s video, “Half Below”; from the smoking keyboard to the fake teeth in urgent need for an odontologic revision, the piece is a succession of ideas, movement, colours and rhythm.
“Half Below” has the signature of Elmø (like the Sesame Street dude but with the Scandinavian ø that hell knows how it’s pronounced). This Parisien studio is multidisciplinary, multidimensional and multiclient; we’re still regretting why they weren’t around when we were kids to design a proper Crash Bandicoot. Happy weekend!
A lot has been said since the organisation of the most important music festival in Spain (alongside with Sónar) revealed their new edition line-up last Wednesday. In La Monda, we could make a deep research of the names that this Primavera Sound 2015 is bringing; about what we think of them including bands sleepier than Diazepam or about highlight the sudden fear we feel when thinking about the fanatic phenomenon that the presence of Julian Casablancas can trigger, but music magazines are already doing that.
We’re going to focus on celebrating that tUnE-yArDs
is coming back to Spain with one of the best albums of 2014. In this last release (Nikki Nack, 2014), American Merrill Garbus ventures with all genres, from funk to folk, going through afro-pop and jazz; amazing display of colourful, poliritmic party. We can assure you that if this girl is already a blast in recording, just wait and watch her live; she’s an energy, good vibe and surprising hurricane. Who would say that Garbus, whose first album was self-recorded in recycled cassette tape, would end up in festivals like Primavera Sound and being a total reference name.
Beginning the day with music should be compulsory; that’s what we’ve done since we were little and you can see how healthy and sane we are now. Waking up pressing “play”, we discovered the band Monarchy. We used to sing Disintegration while we were in the shower, Dita moves included. We liked them so much that we decided to interview them when we had just released La Monda Magazine and, like every story with a happy ending, things went well.
After its premiere in Rolling Stone Italy and Spain, and Vice US, Canada and UK, we present you “Dancing In The Corner”, Monarchy’s new video that La Monda Studio (yeah, we now have the creative itch) has filmed along with our beloved PressRec.
One last thing: we have to say a big loud thank you to the whole team. Without you, none of this would’ve ever been possible and La Monda Studio would still be a dream. Thanks so much to our friends and family for standing us and thanks so much to you all for understanding us, our dear readers. Don’t you ever stop coming to our site; otherwise, we will find you and your houses and we will turn into your new and lively alarm clock. Our showers know what we’re talking about.
