MERIDIAN BROTHERS - DEVOCION (WORKS 2005 - 2011) (LP)


"For the first time officially available outside of Colombia, Bogota's Meridian Brothers present on the Staubgold label a delightfully surreal and playful compilation of their works from 2005 to 2011. "Devoción (Works 2005 - 2011)" features the best moments of three albums which previously have only been released on the local Colombian La Distritofónica label. Traditional instruments, electronics and distorted vocals are dragged through an array of influences to create a world that is as original as it is unclassifiable. Straddling the line between new and old, the Meridian Brothers' mischievous blend of Latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves is the creation of Eblis Álvarez, one of the key figures of the experimental music scene in Bogota. As with all of the Meridian Brother's releases, every instrument on "Devoción (Works 2005 - 2011)" was played and recorded by Eblis himself. A true avant-garde guitar player and composer he also plays in Mario Galeano's band Frente Cumbiero and was one of the 42 musicians involved in the recording of Ondatrópica, released through Soundway Records in 2012. A real musical maverick, labelled a genius by his contemporaries in Colombia, Eblis Álvarez and his Meridian Brothers finally get the full, worldwide attention they deserve." (label info)
