The best kept secret in music

Press


"Textura"

"The quietly magnificent opener, “It’s a hard life” featuring lyrics
by Will Oldham and mixed and arranged by Fernando Corona (aka
Murcof), impresses the most...You Are the Pride of Your Street is,
admittedly, a jarring listen at first but ultimately a rather
satisfying one - www.textura.org


"PITCHFORKMEDIA"

"...this EP is one of the most compelling from-nowhere surprises
I’ve heard in a long time. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Ángel
Sánchez." (8.2)
- Mark Richardson


"THE WIRE (UK)"

"Certainly, Borges's backdrops impress; fractured, frazzled
great weatherfronts of electronics, whose rhythm is kept
by the regular click of a broken record."
- David Stubbs

Feeling a bit camera shy

Bio

[ Everything started in Monterrey , México, some november 2004 afternoon when he was programing a virtual resonator, then he made a proof with his new portable turntable and the result , after a crack in the 45 rpm record wich became a "loop" , was some kind of feedbacking harmonics. He went into the web and was asking for song lyrics with a special subject, he didn´t want to write nothing by himself but to sing over the harmonics piece the faster he could. He said he was hearing spanish band Superelvis at the time, who use to "cut and paste" lines from differente songwriters. He loved the idea, then just typed on the web: "broken hearted songs".]

[ He was not in a particular mood about love, but he discovered a song by Will Oldham: "Hard Life". He loved the lines, never heard until now the original music of it, and sang his own melody upon the harshy and clicky piece. The result was "It´s a hard life". After this, in just a couple of days, wrote a few songs and published it on the Antiguo Autómata Mexicano site (his other musical project). Some people from México City heard the stuff and e-mailed him. One of this guys was E. Lebleu aka Eric Gamboa and the Soundsister label manager Nicolás Pradilla. They said they love the pieces, specially the one we are talking about.]

[ The last two years, SWAL has just released on this label a couple of CD-R ep´s "You are the pride of your street" and "You smell of the music that you made" , played some shows in Europe, USA and México, worked with mexican electro wizards Rubén Tamayo aka Fax, Fernando Corona aka Murcof and Terrestre, and Manrico Montero aka Karras and DJ Linga as well with Pradilla´s Antena. Now he is preparing a new version of his former EP, and the first full lenght album, entitled just as one of Oldham´s infamous stolen song line: "I End Each Day in a Song" ]
