Rauelsson to Tour in Anticipation of ‘Vora’

2013 05 05 07:14
Rauelsson is probably best known for intimate guitar and vocal based songs with releases on Hush and even an appearance on the early Sonic Pieces album Portland Stories compiled by Heather Woods Broderick. With this in mind, Vora comes as a surprise in a grandeur way with its mixture of everything from piano solos, orchestrated classical music, synth buildups and even an shoegaze inspired organ piece sounding like Windy & Carl performing in an empty hallway.

Like a coastal dream impossible to differentiate summer for winter, Vora feels like cold winds slowly warming up. Made in the time Raúl moved from Portland, OR back to his native Spain, settling on the east coast, you can hear the influence of the endlessly forcing waves and empty off-season tourist cities left for the remaining few to discover in peace. Vora is a sure win for fans of Deaf Center´s Pale Ravine, Nils Frahm´s more melancholic moments or film musicians such as Philip Glass and Clint Mansell.

Vora is available worldwide June 14th on Sonic Pieces, the elegant Berlin label that is making quite a name for itself with each handmade release.

Loch Lomond – Dresses out now!

2013 04 12 12:11

Chemikal Underground recently released the anticipated follow-up to Loch Lomond’s Little Me Will Start A Storm in Europe:

Dresses is a stunning, languid departure from the amazing tour EP White Dresses.

The good news is that North America (and elsewhere) dwellers will have an expanded version to enjoy (by this I do not mean extra tracks) but patience may be required.   Therefore, you are urged to go forth and support the band and label with purchase via the Chemikal Underground shop.

It’s your best bet.  Do it now.

In other news, HUSH now has Loch Lomond’s debut available as a download in our own HUSHshop:

And, while we’re discussing all things Loch Lomond, this video simply bears re-posting.

The last couple of years have been busy for Raúl Pastor Medall (aka Rauelsson). While things like relocating to Spain, touring in Japan, welcoming his first son, Oliver, to the world, working on an instrumental piano-influenced album (to be released later this spring), were happening, Raúl found the time to get together with the improvisation ensemble Grup d’Autoajuda and gave form to a live version of Réplica, in its integrity. They performed this live version of the record on several occasions in Spain, including the Tanned Tin Festival. One of those shows was especially remarkable as they were honored with the presence on stage of Peter Broderick, the other mind behind the creation of Réplica. Luckily, the performance was nicely captured and recorded, and Raúl has decided to offer it as a welcome-2013 gift to you all. Of course, if you feel grateful and want to give back, you can support.

Réplica Live was performed at Teatre Municipal de Benicàssim, Spain on June 10th 2011, and has been mastered by Nils Frahm at Durton Studio, Berlin, on December 2012.
