Hurray! I just got a copy of Pulp thanks to my lablab Tessa (who also sent me 2 bags of Gold Roast Milk Tea Mix. I love her so much).
We totally sent hi-res band pics but they picked this one which they lifted from my facebook account, haha.
Also, this article was written when our band still had 3 members! It just came out now. Thank you Pulp and Dat2x for the feature! :)
Anyway, here’s what it says:
THe Pulp Editorial Crew present 13 acts who should make 2013 an interesting year in local music. We may be wrong, but we guarantee you that the music of these new acts would be well the effort of finding.
Jad Montenegro - lead vocals, guitar
Dave Ibao - percussion, guitar
Pjoe Sabanpan - bass, guitar
SOUNDS LIKE: Barbie Almalbis, Imago
circa Probably Not, But Most Definitely
LISTEN TO: The Backyard, which won for her an award for Best Music Video at the Muzika del Sur awards.
CHECK OUT: Her 6-track EP Fixed Points and Pendulums, which you can check out on her social media web sites.
SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITES:
The indie music scene in Davao City is just about as active and diverse as it is in Manila thanks to a bunch of talented, enthusiastic and hard-working people. And one of them is JAD MONTENEGRO, who not only has her solo musical career, but also plays in two bands (Polar Depth and Dopamine Effect) and co-organizes Hiphouse, a collective in Davao that aims to promote the Davao indie music scene. She has a wealth of musical experience, having done session work for Manila-based bands such as Apollo Creed and Death by Tampon. When she moved to Davao, she didn’t know anybody, so she sought out band venues and played on her own until the owner of Durian Bar (one of the most established band venues in Davao City) noticed her potential and hooked her up with her present bandmates.
Her passion and talent for music has so far made impact as she not only gets to play actively in Davao, but noted musicians from Manila have taken notice of her potential. When Davao musicians get the same breakthrough that Cebu-based bands have achieved on a national scale, hopefull Jad would be in the center of things. -PULP
