Vanity Case Records are very pleased to present the new 12″ of the sexy and shamanic Mueran Humanos. After their acclaimed 2011 début LP on Blind Prophet Records and their single on Louder Than War/Southern Records last year comes this two song showing of their hypnotic powers in full form.
They are an Argentinian couple, residing and creating in Berlin. Their music is made up of dual vocals, synth, bass guitar, tapes, drum machines and effects, brought together in to a brooding, dark, sex magickal kind of electronic psychedelia.
El Circulo is coming up….. it builds and builds and builds over a techno-inflected motorik rythm. Recorded at Einstürzende Neubauten’s studio by Boris Wilsdorf, Neubauten’s own engineer, it has some real power behind it and loads of passion in the incantational vocals. With La Langosta you have arrived at a 20 minute plateau, in a really beautiful place. This is a very special piece.
Carmen Burguess & Tomás Nochteff created Mueran Humanos as an art project in 2006, working on installations, video, collage, prints and music. The music, a blend of electronic and electric sounds, became the central part of the project evolving slowly from very abstract to more song oriented structures, but retaining somehow the improvisation and experimental elements, resulting in a sound of their own. After a couple of singles and gigs all over Europe and South America, they released their début album in 2011, supported by a U.S. tour through Blind Prophet Records (vinyl version, New York USA) & Old Europa Cafe (CD version, Italy) to critical acclaim world-wide. They just released their new 7″ Culpable in the UK, on the legendary Southern Records label / Louder Than War series curated by veteran writer and musician John Robb, a 7 inch split with Argentinian band Mujercitas Terror in Mexico on Vale Vergas Discos, and will release a 12″ on UK record label Vanity Case Records (Psychic TV/PTV3 last releases) early 2013. Nowadays Mueran Humanos are preparing the material of their second album.
“Ultimately what Mueran Humanos have done is create a record for everyone to enjoy. It touches upon moments of psychedelia, EBM, garage rock, industrial, kraut rock, post punk, post industrial, and minimal synth and it ties them all together in a well executed and well recorded package with strong male and female vocals sung purely in Spanish. The end result is a truly spectacular journey from the dimly lit streets of Buenos Ares to the crowded and sweaty nightclubs of Berlin. Don’t miss out on what is sure to be one of the most celebrated albums of 2011.” – Blind Prophet Records
