Lorelle Meets the Obsolete: De Facto LP
Mexican duo Lorelle Meets the Obsolete return with a new album on their own Registros El Derrumbe imprint. The album, their fifth, was recorded at their home studio in Ensenada, Baja California, mixed by Cooper Crain (of Cave and Bitchin Bajas) and mastered by Mikey Young Y (of Eddy Current Suppression Ring and Total Control). The end result is brave experimentation and avant-pop put through a heavy psych filter. There are pure pop songs that come across like lost ’60s nuggets (‘Líneas En Hojas’), blistering white noise jams (‘Unificado’) and meditative incantations (‘La Maga’)—all of which will make heads go ‘POW!’.
