[Indie Folk Rock] - Neuman

Neuman is a folk rock band from Murcia with hints of post-punk style. With a touch of melancholy, their melodies are wrapped by only a piano, a guitar and drums. Extended themes where the intermediate and final parts of the composition always acquired more weight than the voice. The voice, warm and sensitive runs through a frame of emotions that are transmitted by a descriptive language that moves you on every note, every minute. Read more

[Indie Pop, Folk] - Hypocrite in A Hippy Crypt

Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt is a indie pop band from Bloomington, Indiana. Band members are still very young and they prefer to stay as anonymous, that not unknown. We know them, we respect the way they present their work and we like them. Their sound is fresh, I would say in the line of "Cage The Elephant", but they refer an influence of Weezer, Beach Boys or Elliot Smith. We hope that they continue forming themselves on the music and that one day they break that shell and offer us that kind of music that makes people so happy. So we wait for you guys!

[Indie Rock] - Kenedy

With an acoustic base and a very nice voice, of different shades, sometimes slightly shy, sometimes very sensitive, Kennedy is a Spanish band based in Seville, who sings in English. Musical themes made with very good taste that grow and develop without following the typical compositions of verse and chorus. Their tracks are very elaborated, impeccable and very rich. A band that set very high standards for bands that are already famous in the Spanish independent scene, but that they should learn from this band at least to sing and at most to compose.

Influenced by The Fall, in A Lazarus Soul we find rooted the meaning of what making music is and having your own project.

It is a music born from the deepest part of themselves, a music made from the inside.
