Leonel Garcia - Slavery Ends With Art (2008 Puerto Rico)
The latest album by LEONEL GARCIA.
Again a very competent neo-psych record with tight playing and very good compositions. The track "Neurogenesis (First Thoughts)" was first recorded by Leonel for the 2nd homemade-lofi-psych sampler "EMBRYO THOUGHTS"; so now here included it is no longer exclusicely to be found there. It's a great song with interesting lyrics.
I hear some traces of late KING-CRIMSON-ROBERT-FRIPP-guitar playing on some tracks (e. g. beginning of "Geometric Lapses Of Unconscious Landscapes" – one of my favourite tracks) and hints of TALKING-HEADS rhythmical weirdness ("Walk the Land", "Lost Your Bubbles in An Half Empty Glass of Champagne"), but the real surprise is the song "Winter Time" that comes along as a bossanova!
Great cover art, by the way.
