Tony Malacara: Tony Malacara (LP, 2022)

Tony Malacara is a Mexican American musician/artist based in Southern California. For 11 years, Malacara performed internationally with a well known garage rock band (from Switzerland to Spain to the UK), playing festivals like Austin Psychfest, opening for iconic 60s groups including the Zombies and the Standells, and sharing bills with Ronnie Specktor and Roky Erickson.

Malacara’s first solo album is psychedelic and dreamy with sinister undertones. A self taught musician, Tony writes and sings his songs, overdubbing bass, guitar, piano, organ and mellotron for recordings. Tony Russo, Malacara’s lead guitarist and longtime childhood friend, provides polished, floaty structure while Shane Graham of Dream Phases provides intuitive and precise drums and percussions. The album was recorded in LA by the talented musician and recording engineer Joel Jerome. Influenced by hazy visions of witches and ghosts, Malacara transports you into an otherworldly realm that hovers between the hopeful and the ominous.

Tropa Magica: III (LP, 2022)

Tropa Magica uphold tradition and Mexican identity with psychedelic Cumbia Rock.

The East L.A. duo made a name for themselves by combining alternative, grunge, and psychedelic rock with cumbia — a danceable genre that originates from Colombia and is typically grouped with tropical sounds like salsa, merengue and bachata, among many. But Tropa Magica expands that sound by featuring diverse instruments and incorporating bossa nova, surf rock and disco.


Release date: May 13th, 2022

East LA’s, Psychedelic Cumbia Punk outfit Tropa Magica release their third studio album Tropa Magica “III” following up their ambitious sophomore album “Tripiando Al Infinito En Mi Recamara” which got placements on Netflix’s Gentefied and Felipe Ezparza’s Bad Decisions Comedy Special. Tropa Magica “III” will be co-released internationally on vinyl by the Greecian label “Green Cookie” Records.

During the pandemic Pacheco brothers David and Rene, worked on this album from hundreds of miles apart in different states. David residing in New Mexico emailed Rene tracks and via emails they mixed and mastered this new album. Originally meant to be demos, the brothers decided to release the tracks in their “lo-fi” state in order to remain truthful and reflecting of the times in which it was written.

Unlike previous albums some of these songs first started off as commissions that David wrote for patrons in order to make some extra cash while unable to tour during the pandemic. What results is a Tropa Magica album that has less production but instead caters to its audience and retains a more coherent and unified Tropa sound. The band prepares to tour nationally this year to support the album.
