Agustin Richard: Pequeña Muerte EP

This new EP includes songs that were recorded by Agustín Richard and the band Pequeña Muerte in a series of acoustic sessions held in La Plata, Argentina. This edition includes a selection of three songs remastered in Barcelona and accompanied by videoclips made by Agustín himself, expanding the creativity germinated with the videoclips of his previous works “Lo Debil De Mi Arbol EP” y “Fue De La Inquietud”.

The album opens with “Mi Fracaso Mas Brillante”, a folk with the energy contained in the guitar riffs and velvety acoustic percussion. The song invites to find success in our failures and it’s a note of memory that remembers us to act without fear with the assurance that this way nothing bad is going to happen. The second track is Amainara and is the most intense song of this new EP. The music suggests wide spaces and reflects the sensitivity with which Agustín can compose and sing. The third song is an exquisite version of one of Agustín’s favorites: “Lo Debil de Mi Arbol”, an orchestrated folk that concludes a walk through different emotions and situations that Agustín invites us to travel with him.

“Pequeña Muerte” was recorded and produced by Agustín Richard between the cities of La Plata and Barcelona, during acoustic sessions with the participation of Agustín Richard (guitars, voices), Axel Greco (bass), Emanuel Zofiaurre (percussion), Rogelio Faut (guitars, voices), Maia Marazo (voices), Pablo Cazenave (sax, voces), David D’odorico (piano). Mixed and co-produced by Gabriel Balderrain, mastered at Taak Studio and released by Giant Pulse Records.

The Near Death Ensemble


the near death ensemble live at magia roja

“If you fancy a big bowl of alternative-free jazz-electronic-funk-psychedelic rock-world soup, look no further than Barcelona’s Near Death Ensemble. I’ve had a warm and soft spot for them ever since stumbling across their recording, “Live at Mutuo Art Center” a few years back. *(Warning: other ingredients almost certainly will be included.)

T.N.D.E. are a loose and evolving collective, being – in their own words – a post-jazz free-rock conspiracy of sound. Which is as good a description as any, really. But the more pressing question here is, what did they sound like on a Saturday night at Magia Roja?

Initial impressions include muezzin-like calls blending with theremin whine-drones… snare & cymbal setting a metronome-steady pace… while bass and guitar combine in hypnotic, tran(s)ce(ndental) figures… distant trumpet floats high above it all… Imagine a Middle Eastern Doors-esque improvisation, a 21st century Grateful Dead jam and, if nothing else, you’ll have reached the limits of this listener’s descriptive powers.

Ensemble founder Curcio’s rhythm guitar – riffs, power chords, harmonics, muted thunks – is usually to the fore, full of spacey reverb, repeating and mutating, interspersed with solos of Beefheartian abstraction and angularity that just drive the experience even further out.

TNDE will put you in that blue tunnel and shine a light at the end of it to guide you along. If you get the chance, go, float, experience, dream… before slowly waking, blinking and blissful.”
