Press Release:

Lendi Vexer, the Argentine trip hop duo, releases its first long-awaited album, The Process of Disillusion, thus launching, at the same time, the label Stereotape Records.

The record consists of 13 tracks which explore the vocal variables inside the electronic music downtempo, conjugating sad and melancholic poetries with a strong critical content. It approaches musical genres as folk, song, broken beats, trip hop and a dismantled jazz reminiscent of the sound of the old school of Bristol, such as Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack or PJ Harvey. The Theremin participates in this combination in several tracks of the record.

The album is distributed by SuperD, one of the greatest integral music distributors in the US which works through catalogue sales and has distributed this record in more than 2400 stores between the US and other countries (France, Italy, Canada, Japan, Korea, etc.). The record is sold in digital form in addition to iTunes, napster and eMusic and it is also available in music stores in Buenos Aires, in all Argentina and the rest of the world (through Faro Latino).

This process of disillusion strives to tear out those blindfolds put during our lifetimes that prevent us from contemplating reality and enjoying the present time. It aims at destroying the mutilating conformism; that artificial welfare that provides an illusion focused on the afterlife which implies the creation of a postponed life.

The Process was born from self-necessity. It is an encouraging message since it cries out for a new age guided by reason, just a bit of reason, the amount necessary to let us get out of the ontological lethargy, that lethargy that mutilates freedom and any kind of non-accepted pleasure, threatening with the worst weapons: ignorance and fear.

Lendi Vexer is formed by Natalie Naveira, composer (singer, theremin, guitars, cello, violin), and Diego Guiñazú, producer (bass, moog, programming and orchestrations). Miguel Angel Tallarita (Los Pericos) and Victor Hugo “Palito” Gervini (Orquesta Filarmónica de Buenos Aires, “Philarmonic Orchestra of Buenos Aires”) participate as invited musicians playing the wind instruments in this record.


Lendi Vexer recorded its first promotional EP in its own studio in 2002 (self-produced CDR) called Suicidal Adage. Originally, it consisted of 4 tracks (Tribute to desolation, Scape, Nothing was special and Suicidal adage).
After deciding to upload it on the Internet for sale, the duo got in touch with people abroad and with an Australian independent label. They put them in contact with distributors and promoted the EP. Once the first 500 units were sold out, in 2004 the EP was relaunched with a bonus track in which Natalie plays the Theremin in real time. This EP will be re-edited by Stereotape Records. As DJ Tom Bollinger played it in Australian clubs, it was him, this great Australian collaborator, who made the first Remix version of the song Nothing was special.
As this material became known, on the web, the duo was asked for permission to make a second remix. Thus, in 2004, The Crimson Underground (UK-North Ireland) made the remixed version of the track Suicidal adage. The EP was already being distributed by “Super D” (US) and was for sale in Cdbaby, Amazon and in Tower Records U.S.
During that year, in the UK and Brazil, Tripofagia (the main Trip Hop site) chooses the EP Suicidal Adage as one of the best three Trip Hop EPs in 2004. In 2005, the company Jun Group Entertainment, Inc. chooses Lendi Vexer to become part of the soundtrack of the “Episode 10” of the American TV show called “The scene”. The selected tracks were Nothing was special, Every Thing is Special Tom Bollinger MIX, Suicidal adage and Tribute to desolation. By the end of that year, the Trip Hop compilation W.E.B (Wicked Electronic Beats vol.1) is edited in the UK and Brazil by Tripofagia’s team. This selection of artists includes Lendi Vexer with its song Tribute to desolation. About this, Guto (Tripofagia) wrote "Tribute to Desolation is one of the nicest melancholic trip-hop songs I've ever heard...". This record also included, among other artists, U-topia and Lovage (Mike Patton, from Faith no more and Dan The Automator, Gorillaz’s producer). By early 2006, due to the fast impact of the record on the web, the Colombian artist Paddington Breaks contacted Lendi Vexer. He made the second remixed version of the song Nothing was special. Meanwhile, in Argentina, the EP was sold in the live shows that took place in “Niceto Club”, “Cemento”, “Especial”, “Remember Jazz Pub” and “El Argentino”, among others.

Diego Guiñazú: He started playing the bass in 1995 and, as he became interested in production, in 1996 he took a complete study course on M.I.D.I. with Alex Antonelli. Then, he got to Maestro Diego Merlo, sound engineer and orchestra director, with whom he studied Orchestration Techniques and Sound Engineering. He has always been interested in science and humanities. Moved by his critical spirit, which led him to study on his own these topics as well as those related to Human Rights, he studied at A.P.D.H (The Permanent Assembly for Human Rights), where he participates at present. All these ingredients are mixed in his art.

Natalie Naveira: She is a teacher of audio perception, musical reading and writing and violin. Lendi Vexer’s Front woman (singer, guitars and Theremin), she carries out the co-direction of the label Stereotape Records and plays the Theremin (Thereminist).
She studied guitar and took her violin teacher training course at Conservatorio de Música de Morón “Alberto Ginastera” (Music Institute), where she is taking at the moment a cello teacher training course. She is strongly interested in science and humanities. In fact, she studied and continues studying these topics and studied at A.P.D.H (The Permanent Assembly for Human Rights), where she participates at present. All these ingredients are mixed in her art.

Prensa:


"'The Process of Disillusion' es también una obra maestra que se alinea como uno de los mejores álbumes de Trip Hop latinoamericano de toda la hora.

Oscuro y cambiante, la mayor parte del álbum suena como una memoria… de un lugar que has estado una vez, o una película viste, o música que escuchaste a altas horas de la noche mientras pasabas por una ventana o una puerta abierta en la ciudad.

Es realmente dificil escoger una canción preferida en este álbum... casi que todas caben perfectamente en cada uno de mis diversos estados de animo a diversas horas, pero si tuviera que hacerlo creo que mi favorito sería "A boot doesn't ask, just trample" donde Natalie se sobresale... Su voz, literalmente me transporta a otro lugar con su energía...

Algunos de sus temas son increiblemente sexys (como "That fish and the bait," "Courtsey excess," y "Simple cycle"), otros un poco trágicos (como "A slow dripping in my brain," "The process of desillusion,"), y otros un poco misteriosos y funky ("To play again" y "Burdel").
Mi menos favorito es la "Suicidal adage," que pienso es un poquito demasiado repetitiva, pero aparte de esto estoy dispuesto a escucharla sin ninguna queja.

En mi opinion, este es definitivamente otro album de cinco estrellas. "

Trip de desilusión
"The Process of Disillusion" es el debut discográfico de Lendi Vexer. Trece tracks que exploran las variables vocales dentro de la música electrónica conocida como "downtempo". Aires folk, cancioneros, trip-hop y jazzy batidos bajo la égida de popes como Portishead, Tricky, Massive Attack o PJ Harvey. Lendi Vexer está integrado por la compositora Natalie Naveira -voz, theremin, guitarras, cello, violín- y el productor Diego Guiñazú -bajo, moog, programaciones y orquestaciones-; el foco lírico está puesto en conjugar poesías -tristes y melancólicas- con apuntes "críticos".

Compacto de Compactos
"[...]Si bien ambos multiinstrumentistas son argentinos, su música es más conocida en plazas como Brasil e Inglaterra, en donde participaron de varios compilados de trip hop, y sus canciones fueron remixadas por diferentes artistas electrónicos. Esta es su segunda placa, en la que intentan despegarse del sello "chill out" que para muchos tiene el género. Interesante es lo que proponen, con una cuota de ambición necesaria. El 11 de mayo próximo tocarán en el auditorio Cendas.[...]"
