Helado Negro: Canta Lechuza
It’s great fun to listen to on the hi-fi, even better through a good set of headphones, and perfect for the warmer weather. Hello, spring.
Helado Negro performed recently at Union Pool in Brooklyn (Why the hell wasn’t I there?) and here’s a bit of video footage from that performance, edited and animated suitably, by William “Zoe” Fitzgerald. The song is “Globitos,” the first track off of Canta Lechuza.
The record release party for Helado Negro’s Canta Lechuza will be held at Glasslands Gallery, also in Brooklyn, on May 10th. (Maybe I’ll be there!) Performing with Lange will be the innovative vocalist, Julianna Barwick, whose latest release, The Magic Place, is otherworldly and intoxicating. (This will give me an opportunity to find out if it really was Barwick I thought I spotted recently at Hecho en Dumbo and then again at Great Jones Café. Her music’s been turning up in my dreams, too.)
Albums by both Helado Negro and Julianna Barwick are available from Asthmatic Kitty Records.
