A while ago, our team had the chance to attend the third installment of the rock festival Paguyuban Crowdsurf at Rossi Musik Fatmawati, Jakarta. Presenting diverse local indie rock acts including Rekah, Dental Surf Kombat, Cumloud, Piston, .Feast, and Tarrkam, the show gathered rock enthusiasts from all over Jakarta to crowdsurf all night long - a move that is both special to the rock music movement and of course, authorities. But what is it that makes the act of crowdsurfing so iconic yet often banned at the same time?
60’s music, especially 60’s rock is pretty diverse in its own way. While everyone remembers Sgt Pepper, there are other works of art from this very rich decade that might catch your interest. Here they are!
Having spent their summer tour with the reunion of Jeromes Dream, the American screamo/powerviolence band hailing from San Fransisco, California has finally pre-released their new single titled “Continuum” , the first track off Loma Prieta's upcoming two singles to be released on January 10th under the label Deathwish.
The 1975 made another comeback this year with the release of their single “Frail State of Mind”. The track is the third pre-released single off their 2020 album “Notes on a Conditional Form”, following “The 1975” and “People”.
.Feast recently released their latest single from their upcoming album “Membangun dan Menghancurkan”—the mysterious, powerful “Tarian Penghancur Raya.” In this single we see .Feast returning to their heavier rock roots, after their foray to a more electronically-influenced rock in their previous single and EP. “Tarian Penghancur Raya” not only delivers a sound that entices and intrigues their audience, but it also reminds their audience that the issues of cultural and environmental preservation are interconnected.
On October 27th, Terima Kost Putri (TKP The Band) held their very first concert, “Konser Metafase” in celebration of the release of their debut EP. The Speedofsound Mag team had the chance to interview the band on their creative processes, their thoughts on social issues, and a lot of other things.
The Philadelphia-based shoegaze act Nothing held a show in Jakarta back in October 11th as a part of their Asia tour.
After 2 years of waiting, indie rock Jakarta-based band Reality Club has finally released a new album.
As “Sweet Chaos” ensues, will Korean rock band Day6 finally be able to define their own sound through their new album?
I could not contain my curiosity when I heard that there’s a local band called Terima Kost Putri—a usual Indonesian tagline in advertisements where landlords are looking to rent out their rooms for women. Turns out, they are more than just their name, and they’re here to prove it.
