March 20th, 2010 49 comments

I have stumbled upon this band and I find it very interesting, so I wanted to share it with you.

The name of the band is : Faces In Disguise. It  is a rock/alternative/pop/experimental  band that began in 2008.

This feisty band is a 4 piece formation with a mix of nationalities (Argentina/Norway and its based in Barcelona Spain) which has been working and paying non stop since they started.

The men behind the Disguise are:  Patricio Felip Insua (Lead Vocals, guitar),  Lucas Rojas Martinez (Guitar, Backing vocals), Albano Manganelli (Drums, Backing vocals), Martin Blech (Bass).

They have just released his album debut:  Niwe Rao. It was recorded in studios from Buenos Aires (El Pie), San Juan (El Hornito) – Both Argentina and in  BCN (Dehesas Viejas) –  Spain.

The band has a successful profile, an excellent background, a lot of fans and really good music, so I am sure we will see and hear it often from now on!

For more info I suggest you check its Facebook fan page or Myspace.

So don’t waste time, go to its oficial site (I linked it before) and download the new cd and get ready for the European tour the band is preparing!

SHH an electronic pop-Buenos Aires style band

I like to recommend this band to you. Their name is Shh and the members are Diana Huarte and Daniel Gorostegui. They are from Argentina though they are also based in London.

Their electronic pop is unique but instead of trying to describe them in a clumsy way I rather use a paragraph that I found on the Internet and reflects the spirit of this band perfectly!

“SHH is electronic pop-Buenos Aires style. Hailing originally from party city Buenos Aires, SHH creates stylish, intelligent electronic pop that’s cramed with big tunes and rampages through everything from Italo to indie, house to punk, all delivered by vocalist Di, a blond bombshell collision between Grace Jones, Lady Gaga and Iggy Pop”

They have released 2 records already with a small record label from Argentina: Oui Oui records. They are starting a small tour in London and Spain to promote the second album: “Gaucho Boy”, so if you are interested in new sounds and you are around, go and watch them playing live, you’ll enjoy the party.

Here are the dates of their tour:

February 3rd Water Monto Rats, London.

February 5th Bar Uxoa, Hondarribia.
February 6th Club Nicolette, Pamplona.
February 8th Radio 3, Madrid.
February 9th Club Costello, Madrid.
February 13th Festival of Sins, London.

For more info you can find them in SHH Myspace and SHH Facebook.
