Martin Dick is an Argentinian gaze-wave creator.
Longer stay readers may recollect the name Martin Dick from the Argentinian band Tirman Kid, with whom he still plays and sings.
A slew of releases surfaced at the end of last month – two LPs and two singles and by way of an introduction to a project I hope to come back to later in the year with more detail – the single Muy Tarde – which is available on bandcamp.

Tirman Kid from Buenos Aires in Argentina is the dream-wave quartet of Martin Dick (Vocals / Guitar), Agustin Slapak (Guitar / Synth), Manuel Gvirtz (Drums) and Matias Oyamburu (Bass).
Layer upon layer of drifting smoke immerse the room as Tirman Kid feed the music into the room. The shimmering guitars are accompanied by synths which allow the phrases to hang in the air, whilst a gauzed vocal echoes remembrances of instrumentation drifted past as percussion settles on hi-hat and ride giving the out-put a fuzziness to which the bass lays quietly in the back-ground grabbing attention from time to time as it sweeps up the stray remainders of the sounds.
The laconic elongated notes give Tirman Kid a munificence which beguiles the listener, whilst the lyric espouses of bitter regrets and the fusion of the two gives the quartet a fascination that holds the ear.
The music itself transcends geo-political boundaries and could have appeared from anywhere in the world at any time since the ’60s with its hazy waves of sound and for that very inclusiveness I recommend you taking a few moments to – kick off your shoes and drift in the sounds.
