JOSE LUIS FERNANDEZ LEDESMA Q. & MARGARITA BOTELLO-SOL CENTRAL, CD, 2000, MEXICO





This dumbfoundingly brilliant and penetratingly weird Mexican R.I.O. mindbomb comes courtesy of an ex member of Nirgal Vallis, whose album Jim posted way back at the beginning of 2007, though there was nothing therein to indicate that this fellow would soon be unleashing some of the more original and damaged sounding R.I.O. moves to have ever graced the face of this planet. The clear precedent for Ledesma Q's muse is the fantastically studio-fucked and acid melted spin on the R.I.O. ethos promoted by Bob Drake via his work in both 5uu's and The Science Group as well as on his solo albums, which Ledesma here somehow manages the hat trick of effectively meshing with disarmingly lovely folkloric themes, something that ultimately only compounds the brain scrambling nature of his enterprise; Ledesma spoonfeeding you morsels of delicate succulence only to blindside you with the maximally tweaked and colossally convoluted while you're mid-swoon. I feel dizzy.

Note: As you can see from the above, I've made the decision with these last 5 posts to use Megaupload as the secondary host alongside Rapidshare rather that Sharebee, after their recent (if very sporadic) issues with third party advertiser-generated malware, which will be the case with all my future posts. Hope this proves to be an acceptable solution.
