Unicornibot son los cuatro jinetes del mathrockalipsis. Beberán el té con vuestras hermanas y harán bailar hasta a las Infantas.
El cuarteto pontevedrés ha publicado su segundo álbum, Dalle!, vía Matapadre, en un precioso vinilo de colorista portada prensado en 180 gramos y limitado a 320 copias, lamentablemente ya agotadas. En esta ocasión afinan su puntería respecto a su debut autoproducido, Hare Krishna, presentando una selección de temas mucho más ajustada al estándar.


Dalle!, mucho más que math-rock instrumental

Y es que el math-rock instrumental de Unicornibot tiene mucha mayor densidad y carácter que el de su primer álbum pero los mismos referentes general que sirven meramente para geolocalizarles en el mapa musical: Shellac, Don Caballero, Fugazi e incluso At The Drive-In.



Escuchando Dalle!, un disco grabado en directo en el estudio Brazil de Madrid a las órdenes de Javier Ortiz, uno tiene la impresión que el medio natural de Unicornibot tiene que ser el escenario, con los amplis a tope y un nivel de decibelios que supera con creces el recomendado por la OMS para el ser humano.



Diez temas instrumentales titulados con mucho sentido del humor cuyo adelanto fue ‘Perro termómetro’, un ejemplo de que los de Pontevedra son menos serios de lo que en realidad da a entender su música.

‘Lendakari’ es el tema que abre Dalle! y tras la sorpresa inicial apetece hincarle el diente a los poco más de veintisiete minutos que contiene. La calidad instrumental del cuarteto es innegable y ‘Julio Iglesias, portero’ es una prueba que escapan al etiquetado math rock pues también tiene mucho de Shellac.

‘Anchoas Castilla’, título hilarante, sí que es math rock de libro. Un tour de forcé de una banda impecable que se vuelve noise en Abril-cerral, otro título chanante y genial. Se vuelven prog en ‘Antigua y Bermuda’ y ‘Dalle que non mira’, mientras que en ‘Pum pum como una piedra’ parecen unos virtuosos, dominando los tempos como esas grandes bandas con las que se les compara.

Perro termómetro es muy free, desquiciante antes de tomar forma y convertirse en una de las favoritas en directo por esa marcheta que imprimen a partir de la variedad de matices aportados por la batería.

“Nota 8″ src=”http://img.hipersonica.com/2012/07/nota8-1.jpg” class=”derecha_sinmarco” />‘Gol de chico’ es muy raruna, tanto como estos tipos que comienzan sus conciertos ataviados con unos casquetes de papel de aluminio a modo de pararrayos. Tiene un toque fronterizo, o mejor dicho, como de score de road movie por los Ancares. Y el cierre ‘Todos contra el fuego anal’ no es más que un guiño chanante de estos geniales gallegos. Como reza en el título de su blog: Do The Unicornibot! - Hipersónica


Los Unicornibot saben que nos hacen tilín. Saben que llevamos meses detrás de ellos. Saben que esperamos su nuevo disco como agüita de mayonesa. Y por eso nos han extorsionado. Bueno, quizá extorsionar sea decir demasiado. Nos han acosado sin más. A ver, nos han hecho sufrir un poco. Sí, esa es la descripción más ajustada. Grabaron el nuevo disco en mayo y desde entonces han jugado a calentarnos el pito.

Lo bueno es que Mambotron (Matapadre, 2013) ya sale por fin en septiembre y que (a cambio de este sinvivir negociando con ellos la cesión en exclusiva de uno de sus temas) nos han invitado a visitar el Liceo Mutante, que es como si te invitan a Marina D’Or o a cualquier destino vacacional de superlujo con pulserita de beber cócteles en la piscina. Sobra decir que nos vamos a cobrar la invitación. Bu, neno ¡Almax Puro Style es la maldita bomba! - Vice

Bio

The four riders of the methalrockalipsis havent stopped since the release of Dalle! (Matapadre, 2012) and theyve already prepared Mambotron (Matapadre, 2013). After tramping various festivals and venues in Spain, Portugal and France in their battered van, they found a little time to put together their new material. The basic ingredients of the band from Pontevedra are still the same: a strident and energic rhythmic base derived from posthardcore, adorned and fed with guitars that go from classic rock, progressive and even dub, in order to define a more and more personal and non-transferrable style where humor and energy are still key. But the neverending quest for personality has also led to equilibrium and rhythm, defining a sound that has become both refined, designed to make each of their concerts an immense celebration. Mambotron is no exception. It was recorded live and mixed thoughout / during three days in May 2013 in the Brazil Studios in Madrid by Javier Ortiz and mastered by JJ Golden in Golden Mastering (California).
