"Jose Monagas"

This week is dedicated to the local talent: a new project in Mexico with experienced musicians. Marcel, Vicko, Gerardo and Willy (now Noé, Manolete and Aldo Quino). With a proposed fusion music that reminds me of "experimental" songs by Ruben Blades in the 90's and early Ska bands of this century. The execution shining from the first note, Vigogabelah like on his first album. However, in these new times of social networks, the bands should not expect much to release a second album and would be a great news to know that most of his music is on the way - Publimetro (Metro)


"Tim Whale"

From Monterrey in Mexico we find Vicko Montemayor (Guitar / Vocal), Marcel Montemayor (Bass / Vocal), Manuel Ortega (Percussion), Noe Constantino (Keys / Vocal) and Aldo Quino(Drums) who make up the alternative indie band Vigogabelah.

Vigogabelah

I was wondering which part of the Atlantic ocean shoreline Vigogabelah didn’t take in as an influence. Caribbean, Latino, Rock and African rhythms all meld in to the shifting landscape. This is like a smartly poured cocktail, blends of flavours don’t fight each other, rather sink down the throat whilst weaving it’s magic and so the listener is lulled in to the space. Good times beckon, with a hint of the darker shadows and it is this undertone that lifts the whole piece.

The players are able to work together to create an energetic somnambulism; now if that isn’t an oxymoron who knows what is? But somehow that captures the anti-nomothetic structures with which the band plays and more importantly delivers to the edification of the listener. Switching between Spanish and English the lyric remains always transfixing, but it is the sheer ability of the band to pack so many avenues in to a sound that despite it all makes perfect sense and more than that makes the world seem a better space for it, that grabs attention.

I am happy to sit in these waters for some considerable time and thank you Vigogabelah for adding a Sargasso Sea to the mix of music - www.indiebandsblog.com

After years of hard working as musicians in several bawdyhouses, underground dance clubs and secret parties; Vigogabelah developed their characteristic style: sometimes dark, sometimes bitter but always fun.

Vigogabelah

Me preguntaba qu parte de que costa del Ocano Atlntico Vigogabelah no tom como una influencia musical. Caribe, Latino, Rock y ritmos africanos todas funden en un paisaje cambiante. Esto es como un cctel elegante derramado, mezclas de sabores no se pelean entre s, y se hunden en la garganta mientras tejen su magia mientras el oyente se adormece en el espacio. Una invitacin a los Buenos tiempos, con un toque de las sombras ms oscuras y es este matiz que levanta toda la pieza.

Los msicos son capaces de trabajar juntos para crear un sonambulismo energtico, ahora si eso no es un oxmoron quin sabe lo que es? Pero de alguna manera capturan las estructuras anti-nomotticas con la que la banda toca y lo ms importante que se entrega esa edificacin al escucha. Cambios entre espaol e Ingls, la lrica sigue siendo siempre transgresora, pero es la pura capacidad de la banda para empacar tantas avenidas para un sonido que a pesar de todo tiene perfecto sentido y ms que eso hace que el mundo parezca un mejor espacio para ello, que llama la atencin.

Estoy feliz de sentarse en estas aguas durante un tiempo considerable y gracias Vigogabelah para aadir un mar de los Sargazos a la mezcla de la msica
