Debut record from Valencia, Spain's obscure Caballo Tripode, a project
formed and recorded during a hiatus by Le Jonathan Reilly members about
two years ago, and now a fully-functioning band alongside LJR. Caballo
Tripode's debut LP is an exercise in contrasting rustic-Spanish-folk
& garage rock with deliberately futuristic chaos, time issues, and
other various "unexpected choices" of all shapes and colors. A
home-spun psychedelic result with a wildness similar to Meercaz's spacey
rockscapes. Here we have songs that position themselves on a garage
& surf backdrop only to depart right into a much deeper bag of
tricks. All this while they've kept one foot down on their romantic
sensibilities, regional (Valencia, Spain) vibes and good ole crunchy
guitars. So it never floats off into outer space either. Like a fucked
up lingering balloon getting blown around in the wind. A very unique
and regional take on what "garage" & "surf" record can actually
become in a post-garage and surf world that rarely attempts honest
re-tooling efforts in their old shops.
Mastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service for the listening
pleasure of audiophiles from Valencia to Valencia. Pressed on dee-lux
mothafuckin 150 gram vinyl at Brooklyn Phono too! Hot shit baby!
