The Argentinian agit-electronica creator Patricio García is finalising release details of the LP Listen In Awe.
The album comprises of samples and spliced voices to create compositions that cast a scathing contempt for societies in which inane chatter and stunted intellect has become taken as thoughts of deep philosophical discourse.
Many of those making it their life’s work to be in the public eye, of both national and international disrepute, are sampled in to the electronic glitch creating music which is at once both jarring and infectious.
Listen In Awe although of some little while in gestation is right up to date as well as pulling voices from the past including King George VI of the UK whilst more current examples include the Argentinian politician Martín Grande who in the June debate on the legalisation of abortion in Argentina, came up with what he felt was a thought of some impressive logic, perhaps a classic of a very stupid fellow mansplaining in to a meaningless vortex of its own idiocy, that there is some abstract comparison that could be drawn between ladies and marsupials reproduction and if only ladies were able to accept that fact none would want to support the legalisation of abortion.
The first song to surface from the LP Monotone Talk, sets the backdrop for the album and will itself be released as a single on the 18th of October.
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.
The Spain based French and Argentinian alt-folk duo Le Garçon Rêvé released the LP Eat Your Make Up earlier in the month.
Le Garçon Rêvé
A roughly thirty seven minutes, nine track album, which quietly and confidently steps from the speakers as Le Garçon Rêvé deliver a soundtrack steeped in adroitly handled acoustic guitar.
My selection from Eat Your Make Up (available on bandcamp) is the fifth number, Pensées Étranglées, which features a viola allowing the duo to add considerable texture to the piece whilst equally containing the most prepossessing vocal performance on the release.
