Alberto “Mandrake” Wolf´s new project did not let anyone down, as Los Druidas´s mixture of rock styles collide in a very Uruguayan rock and roll.
The debut album of Los Nuevos Creyentes was arguably the best debut of 2017 in the indie-rock scene. Tons of incredible textures and guitar distorsions with great melodies are properly communicated by Matias Singer´s delightful voice.

It can be fair to say that 2017 was not the best year for Uruguayan Rock, but Buenos Muchachos didn´t care, and they came up with a brand new album and video. The psych rock veterans did it again, as usual, with their timeless spirit, full of reflexive and powerfully sad moods; and Pedro Dalton´s incredibly unique voice, getting better each day.
The Oscar Winner for Best Original Song in 2005, Jorge Drexler is one of the musical icons in this Southamerican country. There is an effortlessly charming and unique way in which he uses the Spanish language in his music. And, of course, his song “Salvavidas de hielo” is not the exception, as he sums up his sensitive pop-folk, in this case, with a very Spanish-flavored lullaby.
