En los últimos días hemos estrenado dos videos maravillosos rodados en maravillosa película de cine 16mm.

Forastero, que hace dos semanas sobrevivieron a tres conciertos en tres ciudades en menos de 36 horas, nos contaron un día que había un equipo creativo que se llamaba Pérez y Stein. Que eran unos genios y les querían hacer un videoclip grabado en 16mm caducado y que tenían una idea de hacer una peli porno setentera con unos muñecos de lana. Nos pareció una historia graciosísima, pensamos que era mentira y les dijimos que sí sin prestarle más atención. Al cabo de un tiempo llegaron con esto que ha estrenado la prestigiosérrima web Nowness en todo el mundo mundial. Todavía nos estamos frotando los ojos. (El video no es apto para menores ni para gente que pase calor viendo a otra gente abrigada).

Guille Wild Honey acaba de ver Torres Blancas publicado en Japón por Flake Records, y aparentemente podría haber creado un nuevo género de nombre El Rock Super Demasiado Blando. Guille nos propuso hacer un video con la artista Mar Ordonez para la canción ‘Horóscopo’. Nos lo propuso enseñándonos una foto que no tenía nada que ver con el video y, en general, sin darnos mucha información de lo que iban a hacer, cosa que empieza a parecer una costumbre entre los artistas con los que trabajamos. Pero el resultado, estrenado por Jenesaispop, es maravilloso y no le guardamos rencor.

Para celebrar esta exaltación del formato de cine en 16 milímetros, para celebrar que el cambio climático va a matarnos a todos pero no le importa a nadie, para celebrar que esta semana sale un apoteósico 12″ con dos remezclas de temas extraídos de La Sombra de Chip Wickham a cargo de los legendarios Carlos Niño y DJ Andrés, y para celebrar que parece que por fin le van a meter mano a los trileros de La Rueda, hemos decidido poner toda la tienda Lovemonk con un 25% de descuento usando el código JOQUECALORINA. ¡Sólo hasta este domingo a medianoche!

PS1. Sí, nos quedan un poco largos los niusléteres, pero no nos lo tengáis en cuenta.
PS2. Habréis flipado con la ideaca del emoji de fuego en el asunto del mensaje. Es un guiño para el milenialismo. A tope.

English:

In the past couple of weeks, two wonderful Lovemonk videos shot on glorious 16mm film saw their premiere on the interweb.

Some time ago, Forastero, who, two weeks ago, survived three gigs in three different cities in less than 36 hours, came to us saying they met a creative duo called Pérez & Stein. According to the band, they were a couple of geniuses who wanted to do a video shot on expired 16mm film, and not just any video – a seventies pr0n video featuring woollen dolls. We thought it was a hilarious story, and also a lie, had a laugh and said OK without giving it a whole lot of thought. A couple of weeks later they sent us this. The ultra prestigious Nowness premiered it globally last week, and we’re still rubbing our eyes. (The video is absolutely not apt for minors, nor for people who get hot seeing other people wearing warm clothes. Hot as in hot, not hot as in hot – in fact, the video is VERY apt for people who get hot seeing other people wearing warm clothes. Nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more).

Guille from Wild Honey just saw his Torres Blancas released in Japan on Flake Records, and apparently he’s responsible for a whole new genre called Super Too Soft Rock. Our trend-setting hero wanted to do a video with Spanish artist Mar Ordonez, for the track ‘Horóscopo’. He told us about the idea showing us a photo that had nothing to do whatsoever with the final result, and not giving us a whole lot of information on what they were about to do. Which, by the way, seems to be becoming the norm among our artists. But the video, premiered last week by Jenesaispop, is marvellous, and we’re not ones to hold grudges.

To celebrate this exaltation of the 16mm film format; to celebrate the fact that climate change is getting us all killed and too many people seem to give zero f*cks; and to celebrate this week’s release of a tremendous 12″ featuring two remixes of tunes taken from Chip Wickham‘s La Sombra by the legendary Carlos Niño and DJ Andrés, we decided to give you all a 25% discount in the Lovemonk shop using the code JOQUECALORINA. Only until midnight next Sunday!

PS1. Yes, our newsletters are a bit long sometimes. Don’t hate, though.
PS2. You’re probably going apeshit right now over our incredible emoji idea in the message subject. It’s a nod to the millennials. Lit.

While it seems we’re at the mercy of a couple of clowns on the verge of activating their respective Doomsday Devices just to see who’s got the bigger hands/smaller mind, Soleado just keep playing the tunes.

Soleado express their outrage at certain, supposedly christian organisations’ lowness, only putting their deity’s commandments to practice when it suits them, and erroneously believe theirs is the only way. Few things better to fight idiocy and fascism than to play good tunes: Paul McCartney & Elvis Costello, Onom Agemo, Thundercat featuring Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins, Oddisee, Collocutor, and Les Sueques.
