Another album in Omar Rodriguez Lopez's rapidly expanding catalogue. This album, aside from the interesting album artwork, features some of the most heavily synthesized music I have heard yet from this artist. There is no guitar work present on this album, and it creates an spacier and more European feel to the album (perhaps from being in Germany and Amsterdam?) Once again, Ximena Sariñana Rivera is at the helm singing Vocals (in Spanish), and her subtle and velvety voice float on top of the techno-synth background created by the musicians.
Omar does Sequencing, Programming, Synths, and Xylophone; Elvin Estela does Programming, Additional Production, and Bass; and Marcel Rodriguez Lopez (who is an integral part of Omar's normal band) plays Mellotron. The album was recorded by Omar and Elvin Estela. It glides in and out of synthesizer harmonies and loops meshing with the smooth vocal melody. This is one of the more "out there" releases from Omar (but certainly not the most) and Ximena's singing is what really ties the album together. If you like Omar's other albums that feature Ximena (like his recently released "Cizaña De Los Amores" or "Solar Gambling) then this should be appealing to you.
