“Guadalajara” (Used 7 times)

It happened in just one weekend. Three musicians, three crazy musicians, got isolated in a studio in Guadalajara –the legendary 9Corners. For hours they just jammed and recorded. Two guitars and an arsenal of electronic noisy junk. One sunday night, as they had nothing else to record, Delirio sin esperanza (Hopeless delirium), was born.
Who are they? You may ask, and you won't be surprised finding out: Arturo Ortega (aka Piscis, aka .RR, head of the AMP Recs netlabel) in electronics, Lalo Padilla (once a guitar wizard by the name of Molloy & his Bike, director of the extinct Dog Eared Recors netlabel, founding member of Umor Rex, and still an aloof poet and videogame adict) and Andrés Orozco, another great guitarist now playing fulltime with Sutra, his band for more than a decade.
This tracks got lost in time. They were recorded some years back (maybe 2007?) and now they came to you from a lost dimention. They still feel fresh, great music never gets dusty. Here are for you to wear them out play after play until you get lost in space and, maybe, just maybe, wake up in Mars, with your own personal paradise. And, just as the name of the EP dictates, this music was born as a delirium with no hopes of ever geting played live or, even, get its three creators together as Hawaii en Marte again.

In a new phase in our collaboration with the Free Music Archive we are going to be presenting Mexican bands, but not only through compilations like we did until now (001, 002), we are constantly going to upload home and live recordings, samples of records previously released on Mexican labels, and un published tracks, so stay tuned on new content from Estándar. Visit us on www.estandar.org
To start we present this Guadalajara based band.
One of the rock solid bands to emerge in 2010 in Guadalajara, SLZR, just released this mini proof of the power of its first phase. Even though the attitude is the one of a power trio –León Barragán, Sinclair Castro & Eduardo Martínez-, in the live dynamic they manage to make loud noise from more than three instruments and some digital manipulation in real time here and there. All of this derivates in a thick rock sound that gets its forces from undulations, rhythms and riffs that evokes sounds from motorik and drum & bass to dub and space rock in the service of loud volume. In recent date, the band has continued its activity with guest musicians so lets be aware of new sound directions. But for now, here you have Demon Lain.
Demon Lain was published in April of 2011 on http://indiangoldrecords.blogspot.com/
