Easy Listening By Black Market karma ( Flower Power Records)


Flower Power Records is a true independent record label, where, as stated by the founders, “We are free to make our own decisions, all based on music”. Obviously it's necessary to make money to keep a business alive and we feel the best way to do this is to always put bands and their music first. F.P.R was created by "Supersonic" Mark to give Black Market Karma the ability to make and release their music in the way that they want it to sound.

Flower Power Records is not a closed shop, as they have recently added Dead Rabbits to the label and are looking forward to working with more great bands. On the label’s Facebook page, fans have the opportunity to share their music, videos, art, events and news, not to mention connect with Flower Power Records and share the love

Black Market Karma is an England based band formed by Stan Belton, Mike Sutton, Sam Thompson Garido, Mat Salerno, Louisa Pili & Tom Parker. This year, besides touring extensively through Europe, they have released three albums. Their debut "Comatose" was released on January 1, 2012, "Cocoon" was released on June 29, 2012, and the most recent album "Easy Listening" represents the last ‘must listen’ production from this dynamic groundbreaking band.

Black Market Karma es una banda inglesa formada por Stan Belton, Mike Sutton, Sam Thompson Garido, Mat Salerno, Louisa Pili & Tom Parker. Este año ademas de tocar en distintas partes de Europa, han lanzando tres albums. Su debut " Comotase" salio el 1 de enero del 2012, "Cocoon" fue lanzado el 29 de Junio, y su mas reciente trabajo, " Easy Listening"  es la ultima producción de esta dinámica y potente banda.




A band releasing three albums in a year is not typically seen in this day and age, and certainly is unparalleled to the historical pattern for bands. It is even more outstanding when a band can make all three of these albums great ones, which is what Black Market Karma has pulled off. The fact is that Black Market Karma has delivered three powerful pieces of music – the result of having extensive musical freedom and such great musical capacities. Besides touring, they have spent most of the year in the studio, creating these three brother albums, which now represent their musical identity and number among the most outstanding independent productions of the year.

Que una banda lancé tres albums es algo bastante raro en esta época, y es algo poco común para la mayoría de las bandas. Es aun asi mas sorprendente cuando una banda lanza tres albums excelentes en un año, que es sencillamente lo que ha hecho Black Market Karma- resultado de tener una amplia libertad musical y grandes talentos. Ademas de tocar, han pasado gran parte del año en estudio, creando estos tres albums hermanos que ahora representan su identidad musical y se pueden contar entre las producciones independientes mas importantes del año.



Black Market Karma’s music is highly influenced by all periods of psychedelic music, from the Velvet Underground through to Brian Jonestown Massacre, with hints of such well established bands as Spacemen 3 and others like My bloody Valentine or The Beatles. The result is a powerful balance among the noisy and swirling guitars, hypnotic bass lines and omnipresent drums. While they apply the old psychedelic formula, they do it their own unique way, resulting in what is clearly exciting and intoxicating music.

El sonido de Black Market Karma esta altamente influenciado por la psicodelia de todos los tiempos, desde The Velvet Underground a Brian Jonestown Massacre, con toques de bandas tan grandes como Spacemen 3 otras como  My Bloody Valentine o The Beatles  El resultado es un poderoso balance entre noise, torrentes de guitarras, bajo hipnótico y una batería constante y sonante. Usan la vieja formula psicodelica, adaptándola a su propia manera dando como resultado una excelente e intoxicante música.





I have to say that I had my doubts about this third album, but after spending the night with "Easy Listening", there is no doubt that Black Market Karma have done it again. This is a concise album balanced between amazing calculated doses of noise, amazing riff guitars and an easy and calming voice that sends you into hypnotic trance, song after song. It would be difficult to choose just one album from the three Black Market Karma releases, but one this is evident – this new album is another important step in the band’s career

Tengo que decir que tenia mis dudas sobre este tercer album, pero despues de pasar la noche con " Easy Listening" no hay duda que Black Market karma lo ha hecho de nuevo, Este es un trabajo conciso balanceado entre sorprendentes dosis calculadas de noise, riffs de guitarra increibles, y una voz perfecta y calmada que te manda en todo un trance hipnotico, cancion tras cancion. Seria muy dificil elegir un solo album de entre los tres trabajos de esta banda, pero algo esta claro- este nuevo albums es otro paso importante en su carrera


Black Market Karma is part of Flower Power Records, an independent record label that is making its way in the world of music. Along wih label mates Dead Rabbits, they are keeping the England psychedelic tradition alive – both projects are highly recommended. Moreover, they are spreading the power of their music as far and wide as possible, having made their amazing music available to us for free. The only logical and adequate response would be to listen to their music and support them


Black Market Karma es parte de Flower Power Records, un sello independiente que esta abriendose camino en el mundo de la musica. Junto con sus compañeros de sello The Dead Rabbits, mantienen con vida la tradicion psicodelica inglesa- ambos proyectos son altamente recomendables. Ademas, estan llevando el poder de su musica a todos los lugares posibles. No estan dando su gran musica gratuitamente desde la pagina de Flowe Power Records asi que la unica respuesta logica es escucharlos y apoyarlos.
