by Helado Negro
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Asthmatic Kitty
Producer Roberto Carlos Lange's third album under his Helado Negro moniker builds a strange, gorgeous world so inviting you just want to curl up in it. That ability to be at once stunningly beautiful and welcoming is perhaps the result of the album's bilingual lyrics, or maybe Lange's cadre of contemplative collaborators, from Devendra Banhart to Mouse on Mars' Jan St. Werner. Or maybe it's just the trancelike quality of tracks like "Arboles," with its mantra lyrics. Whatever it is, from the gauzy opening track with its industrial thunks and steel pan shimmers on, you won't be able to leave.
