JEFRE CANTU-LEDESMA

Faceless Kiss / Blut Mond

(Emerald Cocoon - EC008) 7-inch $8.00

Cantu-Ledesma’s guitar beams directly down from Souvlaki Space Station and arrives gorgeously mangled via modular synthesizer. Romantically haloed chorus guitar floats widescreen across relentless static drum machines until the sky splits open in the final movement, spilling burning guitar fragments over everything. The pink-out bliss explored on Love Is A Stream (Type Records, 2010) is unapologetically pop here, and more aggressive. The B-side is a bass-heavy covert floater – night sky music this member of Tarental and The Alps, a regular collaborator with filmmaker Paul Clipson and founder of the Root Strata label. Volume six in Emerald Cocoon’s Alone Together series. Edition of 300.
