Jefre Cantu-Ledesma – Love is a Stream

January 7, 2011

Heard this one by Jefre Cantu-Ledesma on Ning Nong Radio the other night.

From Type Records, once again:

“Love Is A Stream” is dedicated to love itself, and the dreamy, shimmering blown-out textures might at first sound like white noise before they ultimately give way to blissful harmony and hidden melody. Underneath the grit and growl are hidden guitar parts, synthesizer drones and even vocals  that succeed in swelling the dense, tape-saturated songs to heady new heights and belie any influences they might have. On each listen the mind strips away another layer of dust and bones to reveal haunting and deeply moving beauty.

One of the best tracks, “Stained Glass Body,” is below; the entire album is streaming at Type.
