Jefre Cantu-Ledesma – A Year With 13 MoonsPosted: July 26, 2015
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma definitely loves challenging music. His entire oeuvre focuses in the idea of pushing the texture in music to new boundaries. Whether it’s the lengthy, unchanged drones, ritual marathons or sandpaper, acidic ambience, there’s always beauty hidden beneath the noise. Jefre’s newest album, A Year With 13 Moons, is no exception from the rule. Like a harsher cousin of Tim Hecker, he purposefully coats the underlying captivating melodies with bursts of lo-fi white noise and corroding metat rattling over the soft interior. Difficult, but very atmospheric. For those looking for that thin border between ambient and noise.
