Label: Lillerne Tapes
Lillerne is excited to be entering 2021 with a new collection of tunes from Spain’s José María Delgado. After having long appreciated his work under the Boliden moniker (and helping to release 2017’s stunning Backyard), I’m stoked to have Delgado back on the label with brand new material for the new year. pasaje brings a new softness and reflection to Delgado’s already masterful use of timing and melody. There’s a level of patience and a constant attention to the musical space at large—both within the melodies and subtle rhythms, as well as the air and quiet that surrounds. Infinitely listenable, peacefully trancelike spaces in which to exist. José’s music has a way of taking the listener elsewhere for a little while, and pasaje offers that same solace and escape from beginning to end. Edition of 75 professionally duplicated cassettes.
