IRONIC OBSESSION
OF BRILLIANT MYSTERY

None of the instruments is essential. There must not be leading instruments. When there are too many voices trying to be heard your only wish is to be deaf. With these ideas in mind Madrid and Scavone started working on their second album. They looked forward to using more complex structures for their new songs without losing the style they´ve created for their previous album. Lots of guest musicians collaborated for this new record, most of them appear to empower and give more clarity to the vocal arrangements, others on bagpipe, accordion, tempuk, toy instruments and viola. The need to include new tones on their music lead them to design and built their own percussive instruments with big plastic bottles, metal sheets, junk and cardboard tubes.
Beyond sound experimentation, “Sang” offers songs that can be enjoyed on Sundays, in the afternoon´s dim light, leaning on a sofa, at the living room. It is a hypnotic music, not for everyone and for a specific moment of your day. These are songs that move forward slowly over rhythms that create a dense and oppressive mood.
Madrid thinks that the long instrumental passages of some of the songs included on “Sang” can be explained by his increasing interest on Tortoise´s albums. On the other hand, Serge Gainsbourg and The Pogues were feeding his love for songs and choruses.
Recorded and produced at El Quinto, every Saturday afternoon from January 2000 through March 2001, by Gustavo Madrid and Omar Scavone; in collaboration with: Jorge Almejún, Fabián Barreiro, Alejandra Carlucci, Ernesto Castro, Rita Divorcio, Lucas Frontera, Marcelo López, Gabriela Luis, Marcelo Pérez, Claudia Spalletta and Gabriel Mateos.
