Dos EPs

This is a quick post to introduce the tender song-writing of Rauelsson. His debut, Teimpo De & Pacifico (out now) presents a collection of songs in two acts; two CD EPs based on separate, yet intertwined themes (time, the Pacific Northwest) with a personal narrative. It’s an ambitious first step for a young man who spends his days as a neuroscience researcher, and it caught our attention from the first few notes. One can’t help but get the impression that Raúl studied music as intensely as, say, synapses, and he is only now exposing this part of himself for the greater public.

Tiempo De & Pacifico feature a long list of contributors. A highlight might be a duet with Laura Gibson, though the tracklist is solid and succinct start to finish. But don’t take our word for it. Have a listen:

Bienvenidos Rauelsson


Raúl Pastor Medall is the first of our roster to break our anglophone release history and we’re thrilled about it. We became acquainted with Raúl during his Portland residency last year as he made fast friends with The Loch Lomond crew and Laura Gibson, among others.

His forthcoming release for HUSH is as stunning in form as it is in sound: Two satisfying EP CDs are housed in sturdy black board gatefold with Evan B. Harris (Cover artist for Laura Gibson’s If You Come To Greet Me) scribed text, printed with gold ink.

Raúl has given several interviews for Spanish radio recently and is presently at work on a soundtrack. We are looking forward to having him back in the Northwest in May.

Until then, enjoy this lovely tune (Featuring Laura Gibson):

Otoño Pacifico

And say ciao over on his site or myspace
