Gotan Project - Lunatico Lunatico
Pop New - LP XLLP 195 XL
Sealed, Out Of Print 2006 2LP Gatefold Original. “On Lunatico (Named For Tango Master Carlos Gardel's Racehorse), The Band Took A Step Back Into The Music That Inspired Them In The First Place. Musically, Lunatico Is Adventurous, It Engages The Tango Directly, Both Musically And In Spirit. It Mixes Beats To Be Sure, But It's So Much More Musical Than Its Predecessor By Allowing Strings, Nini Flores' Bandoneon, And The Standup Bass Of Patrice Caratini To Hold Sway Over The Top Of Most Tunes. Check The Rap Tune Here "Mi Confesión," With Santos Gliding Over A Swath Of Strings And A Pulsing Bandoneon. The Vanguard Tango Of The Title Track, Performed In 3/4 Time, Creates A Dance Rhythm That Slips And Swirls Over Sampled Voices And The Sound Of Gardel's Horse Galloping. "Criminal" Is A Compelling Track; Not Because It Is Accessible, But Because It Isn't. What Begins As A Traditional Milonga Is Quickly Turned Inside Out Over The Course Of Its Nearly Seven Minutes. It's Paranoid And Aesthetically Moving, Dramatic And Seductive, As Well As Disorienting. Lunatico Is A Brave And Exotic Experiment. It Breaks Ground Even As It Re-Seals The Old-World Tango In Time And Space. What Remains, However, Is Something Unspeakable, Some Whisper Of What The Past Offers The Future And How The Future Tentatively Embraces It. It Is A Poetic, Moving, And Disorienting Recording That Comes From The Shadowy Worlds Of History Into The Cloudy Pre-Dawn With Only Memories And Ideas Wrapped In Each Others Clothes. Messrs. Cohen Solal, Makaroff, And Muller Are To Be Commended For Their Musical Bravery; It Would Have Been So Easy To Repeat The Formula; Instead They've Ventured Into Unknown Territory.” Thom Jurek,AMG.... more details
