New release: Joaquim Barato/Flying Cape Experience "8" Split EP

We are proud to present to you our latest release, a collaboration between the Finnish duo Flying Cape Experience and the Portuguese solo act Joaquim Barato, in the form of the split EP "8".

Flying Cape Experience released their debut album "Let's Sing More About The Eyes" on El Vals del Conejo, and have been a pleasureable discovery for many independent music appreciators for the past year, having been featured in numerous online music sites because of their amazing LP.

Joaquim Barato has released the LP's "Rivers" and "Caress Transgress", as well as the EP "April to July", through El Vals del Conejo, and is one of this netlabel's co-owners and producer João Caldeira Bispo. His music has been featured in multiple online music sites, and his latest album "Caress Transgress" was critically acclaimed by Portuguese, Irish and U.S. press.

"8" stands for the eight songs that make up the album, and for a sort of shared feeling that bonds these two artists across the land and sea that separates them physically (they're more than a quarter of world apart, since Joaquim Barato is currently based out of Peru).

Having found afinnity in the spirit and intention of music, in spite of their very distinct approach to sound, they have undertaken this collaboration project as a way of honouring and empowering eachother through the ways only music as an art form can.

The most evident show of the trust they put into eachother's hands is the exchange of cover songs, having Joaquim Barato covered "The Cage", and Flying Cape Experience "Rivers in the Sky".

All songs were mastered by Akira Kosminen, and the artwork for the cover was a split collaboration between Jo Annah and Mari Gho.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is "8".

New artist / New release: The Virgance "Lost Continent"

We are proud to present to you The Virgance, and his debut album "Lost Continent".

The Virgance is Nathan Smith, former guitarist with nineties band Ripley.

Smith lives, works, writes and records from his home in the village of Acton, Suffolk, UK.
He likes to experiment with guitar tunings and, inspired by Pete Townshend from The Who, he also enjoys physically bending the neck of his guitar while playing to generate smooth and dreamy pitch bends and tremolo effects that characterize his music.

"Lost Continent" was originally meant as a concept album. The overriding theme was of water encroaching on the landmasses of Earth through the ages, imagined through both mythology and history, from the lost city of Atlantis through to the recent exodus from Kivalina due to rising sea levels.

This work has taken Smith 4 years in putting together and carefully arranging, and it shows.

It is simultaneously a relaxing and emotionally intense voyage through dreamy soundscapes drenched in sweet and uplifting delays, and tantalizing rhythms and textures.

It will take you to a place where perspective is somewhat detached from its usual ground zero emotion and thus is transcended, a place where waves of sound remind you of the origin of life and its everflowing presence and influence on our world.

Welcome and meet Sisilain

We here at El Vals del Conejo are very happy to announce that we now have our own blog where you can find all of our artists' music and news!

Let's start by presenting our newest addition to our roster:

Sisilain and their "Ambiguous" EP!

Sisilain are a group of very talented indonesian friends who are intent on sharing the joy of their dreams throughout the world. Their music is influenced by lofi indiefolk dreampop, and is conceived by them as a sort of "hallucinating mini orchestra". At times reminding us of bands like Beirut and Radiohead, they have a distinct way of representing their audio mood landscapes. This EP was a very simple and lofi home recording, and was mixed and mastered by João Caldeira Bispo (yours truly ;). Be sure to check them out now!
