Yair López and His Tecuala’s Latín Sampledelic Orchestra - The Mental Care Center Live Sessions

Ah, Qué Ambientazo!!

This mini-Album is as musically odd as technically unique, an authentic sonic achievement in its own right; it belongs to those schizophrenic aesthetic realms found in weirdly attractive albums like Uwe Schmidt’s Los Negritos or Balboa’s Plastic Judas on Fire.

Here you’ll travel across the common musical ambiance found in places like marisquerías, cantinas and public transportation around Mexico... buses or taxis, for sure your Mexican subconscious recall that Sonoras and Boleros, but in this particular case, according to current social times, those common places suddenly turned out to hide a mad man behind inducing through sound processing a psychotic outbreak in those musically-candid pieces of our hurtful romantic but quite colorful, popular culture

Yair López [Seeing Hearing, Cryptic, Clinical Archives] describes his sonic Latin roller coaster ride called Tecuala’s LSO with this short anecdote:

“Tecuala is an important region on the Nayarit State in Mexico. Well known for excellent seafood and Corn Gorditas. Is there where the suns goes down and you are carrying a Pacifico beer. But isn’t just food, beer, beach, terrible weather or sex… In addition, I can say that Tecuala is the place where I found my Orchestra (some retired fishermen and merchants).

I felt a strong connection with the Tecualeños and decide to put together the “Tecuala´s Latin Sampledelic Orchestra”. We had no instruments and no place to rehearse either but we got drunk again and again until the Mental Care brings us instruments and a big rehearse hall. So, here you are, enjoy this as much we did.”
