pan y rosas double release! morti fire by agnès pe and rocks and feathers by cagey house!


agnès pe works on sound beyond the limits enshrined by any genre. her work is characterized by a fun and overwhelming attitude – an all or nothing style that covers the parameters of lo-fi music. this self-taught musicologist is a multidisciplinary researcher that is encapsulated by mystifying melodies and is always seeking new ways of relating to the elements she re-composes. she is interested in the non-common, regardless of their label.

Rocks and Feathers

cagey house has been releasing music since 2005. the tracks generally start as sets of doodles and noodles, and are later edited together into semi-coherent selections. whenever possible, chance, accident, mistake, poor judgment, random acts, misguided notions, uninformed risk, and general ineptitude are incorporated into the compositional environment. cagey house always aspires to the sublime, gladly accepts the humorous, and in the absence of either, tries to at least be noisy.

both of the albums albums are based on electronics and samples but the end results differ greatly. morti fire – beats, mechanics, factory work, pummel. rocks and feathers – clockwinding, videogame free jazz, toy matrix pop standards.

kind words for nombradía pt 1: en desuso by román ramón!


the kindness comes from david nemeth over at acts of silence:

Googling for information about this trio (Agnès Pe, Po Poy, and Lucía C. Pino) brings up basically nothing other than some incredibly interesting music and videos. Nombradía Pt 1: En Disuse is an album that reviewers should be crowing about — a short ten-song EP of collage music at its finest. Track after track, Román Ramón give us snippets of chaotic sound that become ear candy for the brain, a resonant construct of everything.
