REMATE No Land Recordings (double album) -Acuarela 2007- "No land Recordings", his new double album with 25 songs, is jam-packed with clouds of latex, giant wings, toxic passion, dinosaurs, enemies, falls, one-eyed singers, pain in vain, kitties and beautiful ladies, love at first sight, howls, fireflies, propeller beanies, TV shows, sports, calls, Superman, glowing colours, bankruptcy, tenderness, mends. Whereabouts are the best songs being born? Where do they grow up like unhappy children? Which are the shops where you can buy propeller beanies? From gospel sketches and echoes to silences. From children playing to omnichords and pedal steel guitars. The dregs of his songs spread out like purple stains. Split in two CDs called "Beetle" and "Bird", we face the work of a brilliant and dazzling personality. A diptych drowned by a bitter liquid chained to an umbilical cord of appellant substances: free will, digressing songs and great enemies. Their morphology and dynamics go beyond these recordings, where we also find several collaborations, like the Loco Band (Paco Loco, Muni Camón, Pablo Errea), members of the Spanish band PAL (Carlos Toronado, Kike Pierrot) and even Gary Louris of the Jayhawks). Rumour is that a girl came close to him drawled: "Remate... you are sinister. I close my eyes and I become part of a David Lynch film". We have seen other girl crying because something moved inside her, and anoher guy holding himself trying not to fall down listening to the piano that opens "Toxic Love II". John Golden (a sound engineer who has worked with Sonic Youth, Chris Isaak or Low...) praised the CHARACTER (right this way, in capital letters) among others virtues of "No Land Recordings". And a family in not the best of moods/situation/emotional balance drove a hundred miles at night just to listen to his songs. It was very foggy in the lost highway, and next to the steering wheel, there was a compass to get lost by GPS. Remate: specie on the way to extinction. With a proper voice, manner and language. With plenty of humanity (faith and madness), the one and only inhabitant of No Land Recordings. Come in without knocking. Acuarela. (www.acuareladiscos.com)
