Before jumping into what’s up for 2015, just wanna tell y’all about my latest cassette album, which was released in October 2014:
Vagaciones II (released on Troglosound)
This is the second part of a musical scrapbook about water, heat, peace of mind and true love. It was recorded in Coín, Spain on July/August 2013 and was mixed on June 2014 in Brussels. Like the first Vagaciones album, it is a collage of sounds linked to memories of a sunnier and more peaceful physical/mental space. This is a very personal release, but then again all of them are. Infinite gratitude to David and Virginia, for their patience and friendship.
“Second chapter of Bear Bones Lay Low on the Vagaciones series (the first came out a couple of years ago on our fellow’s label Young Girls from Liege), which is probably Ernesto Gonzalez most psychedelic freak-out excursus in music. On this one the leading figures are the dreamy piano melodies and the obsessive percussive lines, surrounded by an aura of minimal electronics sounds. All this recorded straight on tape and quite lo-fi, which helps keeping it trippy and foggy.

As far as shows go for 2015, the Live section has been updated with a nice handful of shows, solo, with da Tav, with my buddies Simon & Glen and the Jooklos. Speaking of these italianos, we’ve created a new electronic outfit called YADER. Keep an eye out for recordings and hopefully tours. PEACE
