LEANDRO FRESCO & RAFAEL ANTON IRISARRI
La Equidistancia LP (Clear vinyl)
A Strangely Isolated Place 08 / USA / 2017
This efficient partnership resulted in a record that will be a unique yet identifiable stylistic combination between them both. But upon deeper listening, La Equidistancia unearths a complex and introspective reflection of the many fragmented memories and expressions held amongst two newly-formed friends, thousands of miles apart. Without the ability to meet in person, it could be said the record became the musical equivalent to a shared cup of tea or drink at the bar - common ground between two good friends. Emotions are clearly channeled throughout the building tension, soaring atmospheres and crumbling distant worlds heard throughout La Equidistancia. Leandro’s melodies add a warm depth to Rafael’s harmonic distortions, effect pedals, and tape loops (made with a crusty 1/2” tape machine in Rafael’s Black Knoll Studio).
