Six Degrees – (#5)

Hello and welcome to another edition of Six Degrees. This week I have changed the format of the section. Keeping the main structure of six bands (2 videos, 2 tracks and 2 live performances) I have removed my comments and just added the “technical data” of each band and their releases. The reason for this is just to save time while I am still subscribing to all the bands that have participated on Fresh On The Net. I have subscribed already to many of them, but I have to review still the listening batches 16 to 24.

The bands of this week are coming from many different genres. Rock, Blues, Folk, Punk and Garage, I have selected a wide contrast of music styles, all of them from great bands. A party of music to celebrate with all our readers. Thank you for coming and for supporting these bands every week.

Hi, I'm Mar, a member of the Fresh On The Net team. I am a biologist, and I work at a research laboratory. I became interested in music as a child and studied Music Theory, Piano and Choral Singing for more than one decade. Although the circumstances steered me into Biology, I have never been cut off from the music. Since always I've had a predilection for Scottish, Irish folk, Breton and Galician music, but I have a large collection of world music. With my trips to Brazil I added from Bossa to Samba, Samba Reggae, Pagode, Sertanejo..., but above all, a wide range of current Brazilian rock musicians, entirely unknown in the international market. Hence, when I returned to Spain, and later moved to Los Angeles (California), I was bored by the monopolized commercial music that was on the radio. This, the gradual disappearance of good record stores and the possibilities offered by the Internet, sparked my curiosity for other forms of music and the independent music media. Following that path I founded “Jungle Indie Rock” with my best friend, a music blog where we have fun and we feature independent bands and artists. I still travel a lot, looking for new sites, sounds and rhythms. I currently live in Madrid and landed here in 2012 at Fresh On The Net :)
