Artist: STACCATO DU MAL
Title: Desespero
Format: 7"
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Wierd is proud to present the first single Desespero from Staccato du Mals forthcoming debut album Sin Destino. SdM is the solo project of Ramiro Jeancarlo from Miami, Florida, who has long been a beloved member of the Wierd Records family - performing as a member of both Opus Finis and Flesh Graey Display and appearing on both of the Wierd Compilation collections. Staccato du Mal summons the hot and dirty post-coital Miami sun, performing on entirely homemade and modified analogue gear, to produce a menacingly nihilistic, sinister sound seething with wild confrontational energy. Sung almost entirely in Spanish, the forthcoming debut album is informed by Jeancarlos half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that is no doubt a product of living within the mini-mall infested suburbs that sprawl across the dry, lonely landscape of South Florida. Despite this disorienting feeling, there are inspired moments of resolution where warm, delicately sensitized melodies and sparkling psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On Desepero, Jeancarlos pleas to “let me in, I want in” are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessibly inviting synthpop background." - Wierd.

Artist: STACCATO DU MAL
Title: Sin Destino
Format: CD
Label: Wierd
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Wierd Records is proud to present the new LP by Staccato du Mal, entitled Sin Destino. Freezing out the heat-seeking Miami scene with his cold minimal synth for the past decade, Ramiro Jeancarlo (1/2 of the industrial outfit Opus Finis) offers up ten tracks of analogue darkness. Sung in both English and Spanish, the forthcoming album is informed by Jeancarlos half Chilean, half Venezuelan background. Pervasive throughout the LP is an aura of dread and claustrophobia that without a doubt evokes the hot, dry, lonely landscape of suburban South Florida. But beyond the dismal swamplands, its possible to detect the mournful ambiance of cultures plagued for centuries by colonization, civil war and political turmoil. Whether Jeancarlo means to offer "Salvation Through Suffering" as an alternative to everything from Catholicism to revolutions-turned-tyrannies is not explicit, but the distinctive mood of dread conjures something more monolithic than plain nihilism. Therein lies the fascinating duality: "Lost Image" could as easily land in a soundtrack to a film about a lonesome teen in desolate suburbia as it could a film about Pinochets Caravan of Death. Despite the disorienting feeling of so much of the album, Staccatos own coup détat comes in the moments of resolution where warm melodies and nearly psychedelic soundscapes counter the bleakness. On “Desespero,” Jeancarlos pleas to “let me in, I want in” are frighteningly forward but made inviting against a danceable and very accessible synthpop background. The instrumental “En Sueños” has a sweetly bright melody atop sinister beats that plumb the depths, while the synthesizers in “Happy Endings” happily climb into major dimensions as the signature darkness shines through. While this album could be described as Wierd Records least commercial release so far, Staccato du Mals music is rich with sonic feeling that makes for infinitely rewarding listening. Working within the confines of the minimal synth genre, Jeancarlo manages to include elements of pop, noise, and industrial that slink to the surface with each eerie listen." - Wierd.
