For the latest episode of their “Short Talk” program by digital outlet Sounds From The Corner, they presented two talented-independent bands known as Efek Rumah Kaca and Barasuara. According to Teguh Wicaksono who is the founder and videographer of Sounds From The Corner, they are two different bands with one true affinity, as in both bands are raw and irrelevant. The all star outfit of Iga Massardi has not released anything digestible, while the existence of sextet is shyly surfacing thanks to gigs, word of mouth, and hazy press coverage from few curious journalists. The latter, is smoothly surviving from a grandiose hiatus, leaving historical trail in the history of Indonesian music. A “rebound project” with exotic angles and a bright future. Efek Rumah Kaca nobleman Cholil Mahmud has finished his zen moment, after years of educational journey with a mixture of art and politics at the sleepless city where Frank Sinatra wanted to wake up. But witnessing this video, do you ever wonder how beautiful the chaos that they will establish onstage, together? Efek Rumah Kaca and Barasuara are playing together on the same stage this weekend on Saturday, August 22nd 2015 at Gudang Sarinah Pancoran Timur 2 Tebet in South Jakarta for the Go Ahead Challenge Artwarding Night. For those of you who do not want to miss this classic moment, feel free to visit their gigs.
