about

It's exceedingly common to hear certain music referred to as "a trip." This "trip" could mean the music seems to take the listener places, or that it's redolent of certain psychoactive mind-altering substances. But this new LP from SanIsidro, aka Isidro Rubio de Valencia (formerly of VENEREANS and garage legends WAU y los ARRRGHS!!!) is both of those things to an almost shockingly large degree. Depending on your state of mind when you listen to it, you might feel like browsing at a surreal bazaar in Morocco or Tunisia, or walking into the Last Chance Saloon with tumbleweeds tumbling behind you. Or perhaps you're on the Balearic Islands watching the waves rush in. Then the next thing you know, you're having your mind rearranged by the music and light show at a San Francisco ballroom circa 1967. Cinematic elements evocative of Nino Rota, Angelo Badalamenti and Gustavo Santaolalla also come to mind, as do the deeply progressive “New Flamenco” manifestoes of Lole y Manuel. This could be considered quite a stretch coming from an artist whose main influence is the traditional folk music of the Mediterranean, with its tales of the woes of shepherds and farmers, or concern with the psychological development of a child’s mind.

These songs seem to magically materialize out of the ether, or rise like a charmed snake. They all seem to come fully-formed as the product of the same spontaneous psychedelic fever-dream, but they were actually developed sporadically over a period of several years (2014-2016) before being recorded and finalized over the course of six months in 2018. Its recent vintage doesn't prevent it from strongly evoking material that could have been recorded during the original psych era, yet it exists in its own temporal sphere, both timeless and cutting-edge. It ties in with a lengthy tradition of the people’s music of Spain (and elsewhere), and still somehow manages to keep it all simple, basic and accessible. This is some of the heaviest new psychedelic music made in quite some time, and it is gonna blow some minds.

*****

Es excesivamente común referirse a cierta música como "un viaje". Este "trip" podría sugerir que la música parece transportar al oyente a lugares o, evocar ciertas sustancias psicoactivas o, alteradoras de la mente. Pero este nuevo EP de SanIsidro, tambien conocido como Isidro Rubio de Valencia (anteriormente de VENEREANS y las leyendas del garage WAU y los ARRRGHS!!!), es ambas cosas a unos niveles altamente sorprendentes. Dependiendo de tu estado de ánimo al escucharlo, podrías sentir que estas ojeando en un bazar surrealista en Túnez o, Marruecos o, entrando en un Last Chance Saloon seguido por un rastro de plantas rodadoras o, tal vez estés en las Islas Baleares viendo las olas romper. Entonces, de repente, tu mente se ve alterada por la música y las luces en un "ballroom" en el San Francisco de 1967. Elementos cinemáticos evocadores de Nino Rota, Angelo Badalamenti y Gustavo Santaolalla tambien vienen a la mente como lo hacen los manifiestos profundamente progresivos del "Nuevo Flamenco" de Lole y Manuel. Esto podría considerarse un gran salto viviendo de un artista cuya principal influencia es la música tradicional y el folklore del Mediterráneo, con sus relatos y aflicciones de los pastores y agricultores,sus canciones de cuna y recreo.


Estas canciones parecen materializarse mágicamente del éter o, alzarse como una serpiente encantada. Todas ellas parecen haber tomado forma como un producto del mismo sueño febril, espontáneo y psicodelico, pero en realidad se desarrollaron esporádicamente durante un período de varios años (2014-2018) antes de ser acabadas en el transcurso de unos seis meses en 2018. Su reciente cosecha no les impide evocar fuertemente un material que podría haberse grabado durante la era psicodélica original, aun existiendo en su própia esfera temporal, tan atemporal como innovadora. Enlaza con una larga tradición de música popular de España (y de otros lugares) y sin embargo, de alguna manera, se las arregla para hacerlo simple, básico y accesible. Esta es una de la nueva música psicodélica más heavy hecha en bastante tiempo y le va a volar la cabeza a más de uno.
