Title: Requiem (For Violin & Magnetic Tape)
Format: 10"
Label: Infinite Greyscale
Country: Germany
Price: $33.00
"One-sided canary yellow vinyl. Screen-printed B-side by master screen-printer, Ulrich Schmidt-Novak. Recorded at The Headlands Center for the Arts, California. Violin by Tony Cross. Jefre Cantu-Ledesma (The Alps, Tarentel, Isidore Ducasse, Portraits) delivers here a darkly beautiful and plaintive piece built of violin and tape loops. "Requiem" has a crepuscular quality, but its hard to tell in the half-light if the piece is shifting toward light or darkness. Handmade artwork by artists Paul McDevitt & Cornelius Quabeck using a Risograph printer in combination with spray paint. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Released in a numbered edition of 300 which will not be repressed. Includes a photograph, insert, and download code." - Infinite Greyscale.

Title: Songs of Forgiveness
Format: LP
Label: Pre-Echo
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Originally released in the summer of 2014 as a cassette by Baro Recordings, Jefre Cantu-Ledesmas Songs Of Forgiveness is now available for the first time on vinyl. Edition of 500 copies via the New York imprint Pre-Echo. Composed by Cantu-Ledesma during his first winter after relocating to Brooklyn, NY, this suite of six discrete tracks are formed by colliding micro orbits of guitar, drum machine and synth, all purposefully phasing in-and-out of sync, and painted with chords of ecstatic melancholia and tape hiss that typifies much of Cantu-Ledesmas work. Pre-Echo Press was started in 2016 by New York based visual artist Matt Connors as a platform for disseminating a diverse and idiosyncratic array of recorded and printed matter." - Pre-Echo.

Title: Love Is A Stream
Format: LP/CD
Label: Type
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"Includes a 50-minute bonus CD featuring some of Jefre Cantu-Ledesmas original material reworked by Type label head John Twells (Xela). As a member of San Francisco legends Tarentel and Types premier astral travelers The Alps, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is hardly a new addition to the label, so its hard to believe that Love Is A Stream is his first Type solo album. With previous releases on Arbor, Spekk and his own Root Strata imprint, this latest album marks his journey into the beautifully cacophonous world of dream pop. Shoegaze music has been much maligned in recent years, probably due to its rebirth and subsequent explosion of popularity (which gave rise to hundreds of young bands aping the over twenty-year-old sound); however it was only a fragment of the genre that these bands attempted to recreate. On Love Is A Stream, instead of focusing on tired, melancholy ballads, Cantu-Ledesma focuses solely on expansive, almost noise-ridden hopefulness. This is the kind of noise audiences fell in love with when My Bloody Valentine blew their ear drums performing Loveless, or the kind of harmonic excess heard on Catherine Wheels Ferment, but taken into deeper, more abstract realms. Love Is A Stream is dedicated to love itself, and the dreamy, shimmering blown-out textures might at first sound like white noise before they ultimately give way to blissful harmony and hidden melody. Underneath the grit and growl are hidden guitar parts, synthesizer drones and even vocals (provided by Lisa McGee, John Twells and Maxwell August Croy) that succeed in swelling the dense, tape-saturated songs to heady new heights and belie any influences they might have. On each listen the mind strips away another layer of dust and bones to reveal haunting and deeply moving beauty. The world might be spiraling into despair, but Jefre Cantu-Ledesma has brought us a record that isnt afraid to share the love. All thats left to do is drown in it." - Type.
