Organized Music From Thessaloniki, UK
Organized Music presents Titubeo, the second release from Miguel Prado’s Nzʉmbe project. Miguel is a Galician “composer/theorist/ provocateur” (Byron Coley, The Wire) based in Bristol, UK. Since 2007 he has released a number of solo works, and has worked together with artists such as Mattin, Stephen O’Malley, Michael Pisaro and Jozef Van Wissem.
Built upon a musical bed of modular electronics, guitar, keyboards and percussion, and featuring musical contributions from fellow Iberians Rafael and Roberto Mallo, Ruth Barberán and Alfredo Costa Monteiro, the record’s seven tracks are comprised of several nakedly emotional structures that most closely bring to mind the decadent lyricism of late-70s music and general culture. Unashamedly romantic, the songs waltz through references to disenchantment, affection and humiliation, allowing for grand gestures, electrical explosions and hammering repetitions to tower over the music while the voice maintains a steady and melodramatic tone throughout. The vocals themselves are often heavily processed and broken dow.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, edition of 250.
