OUZO BAZOOKA (ISR)
The exotic psych rock band Ouzo Bazooka from Israel! The quartet out of Tel Aviv draws influences from this local melting pot and exotic Middle Eastern feel, along with classic hard rock, kaleidoscopic psychedelic art, garage rock and surf
- Ouzo Bazooka's sound is a dizzying concoction of East meets West. Sounds like Goat playing with The Growlers and The Black Keys at an Ouzo-drenched wedding in Beirut!
Master of the wild ceromonies is Uri Brauner Kinrot who has coined the Israelian Psych and World Music scene for 10 years now by playing with Boom Pam, Shantel and Balkan Beat Box.
Ouzo Bazooka'ssecond album will be released in April 2016.

In a short time, Atavismo has become one of the most interesting bands in the national music scene. Along with other bands, it’s living a true rebirth of Progressive Rock, Psychedelic, and Hard Rock in Spain. Blending tradition with new sounds, the proposal of this band from Algeciras (Cádiz) has been to develop an ever growing direction in terms of quality and inventiveness.
It has risen from the ashes of well known underground bands such a Viaje a 800 or Mind!. At this point, Atavismo cannot be considered a mere extension of these bands. The essence of its music has been transforming since they started playing, and credit cannot be given to anyone but themselves for the music they make.
Atavismo’s members are Sandra, drums and vocals, Mateo, bass guitar and back-up vocals, and Poti, guitars and vocals, proving to be a full-fledged power trio. In 2015, they produced their first album, DESINTEGRACIÓN, with a CD backed by several record labels (Nooirax, Adansonia Records, Odio Sonoro, etc...) and a splendid vinyl edition distributed by Temple of Torturous, a Swedish label. This album was a musical event, not only for the Spanish market, but also internationally, as it was significantly welcomed by specialized media such as the web site The Obelisk that considered it one of the best albums launched that year.
