Little Cosmicana featuring Juán Tigre and Biglemoi

cosmicana dec

Little Cosmicana is the kid sister of Simple Play's annual Cosmicana Festival, celebrating psych rock, indie, alt country and folk music from the Southeast, Gulf Coast and beyond.

New Orleans based Biglemoi named themselves after a fantastical dance which, if performed properly, creates an atmosphere of flowing energy that invites everybody to join. The term, lifted from the book "Froth on the Daydream (L’Ecume des Jours)" by surrealist-wave author Boris Vian, fits the 5 piece.

 Biglemoi comes off as a healthy mix of all the best rock and roll ingredients. Anchored by traditional instrumentation and creative arrangements, their songs are snapped together by sudden flourishes of technicality and genre shifting. The songwriting is thoughtful and unpredictable.

The band started playing in June 2015 with the release of their first self-titled EP, and reflects in their music the concept of the Biglemoi explained by Vian. It is composed of three New Orleans natives, bassist Matt Bigelow, guitarist Jeremy Marx and drummer Jonathan Arceneaux. Violeta del Rio from Madrid, Spain, plays keys/synth/vocals and singer/guitarist/bandleader George Elizondo hails from Managua, Nicaragua. This geographical diversity adds a welcome variety of both personal and cultural influences to their music.

Juán Tigre is a band which fluidly blurs style lines creating a sonic imprint that cuts through the noise, deep into the heart of a sound all their own. Their sound is marked by fierce guitar work, dreamy electronic soundscapes, soulful melodies & harmonies, craft songwriting and ferocious grooves. Formed in the spring of 2016, their first performances were given to wonderful audience reception at the New Mexico Jazz Festival. This music moves people.
