The live performance of “Alquimia” will be on Saturday, August 13 at La Tangente – Honduras 5317, in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo.
Rocio says that “Alchemy is a concept album brought together by a thematic axis: the transformation of traumatic experiences into positive realities.”

2. Citrus’s “Smoking in the Cinema”

“Smoking in the cinema” is the latest preview of the new Album by Cítrico, which will be released in the second half of this 2022. It is a love song in neo soul key , which has the special participation of Carlota Urdiales, singer and actress of Spanish/Argentine blood.
On a chill base, at times of dreaminess, parades a series of reflections and feelings dedicated to a unique person, which the author himself puts in value in his phrasing.
With a soft interpretation, which is even interspersed with the base itself for a homogeneous flow, an overlap of voices, and drawings and choral arrangements, “Smoking in the cinema” stands as a beautiful artistic piece from each of its parts.
After the releases of “Laberinto”, “Nosotros dos” ft Goyo Degano and “Congelado”, his first three promotional singles, “Fumar en el cine” closes the letter of presentation in four volumes of the next album of Citrus, which pulsates its premiere and generates great expectation in the national scene.

3. “15 Again” by Suede

Suede released “15 Again,” the powerful new single taken from his upcoming studio album Autofiction, described by Brett Anderson as “a song about falling in love with life for the first time.”
“15 Again” follows “She Still Leads Me On,” the daring first preview of the upcoming album that Suede premiered live in a surprise performance in Brussels and was broadcast live to her fans.  
“Autofiction” is Suede’s ninth studio album, and in it the band decides to return to the basics in movements reminiscent of their more formative days.
Brett Anderson said, “Autofiction has a natural freshness, it’s where we want to be.”  And where Suede wants to be is, in a way, the same place they were when they started 30 years ago: a group of people who live the raw feeling of creating music together in a room.
This natural freshness can be heard again in “15 Again.”  “When we were rehearsing and writing this record, it was a physical high.  That thing you hold on to,” adds bassist Mat Osman.

4. “Pary in the neighborhood” by Cattaneo & Aston G

“After a context of pandemic and confinement, we continue to have the only thing that matters and that will always be: the neighborhood, the people, the family … the best and nothing more.

“Muzza” is no exception, as it does not judge the combination of styles: Funk, rock, tango and rap come together strongly to make up the work. 
“Muzza” is an ironic dedication to those provocative situations that remind us that we are alive. The single has a video clip that shows, obviously, the metaphor of the inner child who often would like to say so much.

The lyrics combine some images that emerge from the feeling of confinement of the 2020 pandemic, records of journalistic chronicles of that moment and a free reading of the symbology of the I-Ching, to ask in the refrains for the desire to see what is behind “that construction that organizes and shapes our reality”.

7. “I Break Barriers” by Magnus

Magnus is a new musical project artistically directed by Franco Gerber, pianist and composer from Neuquén, under the musical production of Rigo Quesada from his studio in Cipolletti, Río Negro.
Magnus ‘ songs are taking shape around the idea of fusion of different elements that generate a constant air of amalgam, within the classic format of the song.
“Rompo Barreras”, his second studio single, is a song that plays from the rhythmic with our folkloric identity, while trying to keep that influence somewhat hidden behind the stinging of the electric guitar and an electronic loop of drums and synthesizer.
However, the bridge of the song makes explicit the reference to the style and defends it from the text with determination: “… I meet and disarm what I see and what I love/I no longer travel without being this ever again.”
The idea of breaking barriers, although written in the first person, comes to continue the literary legacy of Magnus, where it is proposed “… recruit warriors who defend from our own lineage the ideas and customs that give rise to the New Age that we must build.”

8. “Useless Miracles” by Nahuel Briones

“Milagros Inútiles” is a beaten cocktail in which several ingredients were stirred: poetry of raw and open story, psychedelia, international politics, digital vandalism, electronic aesthetics lo fi, author’s love song with arrangements of winds and strings, television-internet-phobia-social-depression, mega violent metalcore guitars, whispered voices, distortion and hits.
Nahuel is an obsessive of care for the quality of the audio and material added to a deep respect for the public. He is at a very high point in his career with a lot of material to throw and with his powerful gem: “Useless Miracles”.
The album contains “Tu mascota” which will be the next undisputed hit of briones’ audience, the chorus is a bomb, the lyrics have the perfect share of sarcasm and poetry and the production is completely at another sound and creative level in relation to all his previous music.
