New Album ORCAS out now!
We are extremely happy to share our fifth album ORCAS
It’s a collection of songs about the risk and vulnerability of falling in love: falling in love with another, falling in love with the chaotic beauty of nature, and the ultimate need to fall in love with one’s self… It’s our most intimate album to date. It feels like a very raw and vulnerable album to us, and it’s finally out!!!!
It was recorded on Orcas Island -during Alejandra’s last stage of her pregnancy- in a magical state-of-the-art recording studio, thanks to an invitation by Sub-Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt. While there, we were deeply moved by the energy of the island, and felt truly nestled and surrounded by guardian spirits… so much that the album’s name became Orcas, in honor of the incredible beauty that came to nourish us at this place.
Orcas is an invitation to delve into deeper waters…
It is also an album whose experience really changes depending on what speakers you are listening through. Through small speakers, it can be heard as an intimate folk album, or in a system with subwoofers, it is a deep entrancing, rhythmic album. “The electronically processed deep bass sounds ground the music, adding extra drama, as if to remind us that love is beautiful, but to remember that everything, including us, will one day be gone.”
Listen, Download, Share!!!!!!!!

Esperando el Tsunami – by CPH DOX
Vincent Moon, who won the Sound & Vision Prize in 2009 with his masterpiece ‘La Faute des Fleurs’, is back with what he calls his best film ever. We are not reluctant to agree with him. ‘Esperando el tsunami’ is an intoxicating picture & sound piece disguised as a road movie. Alejandra and Luis, the two young musicians in the South American duo Lulacruza, travel across Colombia to take the country’s musical nectar and transform it into their almost shamanic trance sessions, which call to mind Animal Collective’s early days. On the heels of them follows Moon with his sensuous-seeking camera and responsive musicianship -which make him into something quite unique in today’s film world. This hipster-vagabond who single-handedly revived the music video as an art form, is now doing the same with music documentary. But ‘Esperando El Tsunami’ is greater than its own genre, with its extreme close-ups of nature’s smallest details that open the film gradually up, as a magical-realism love story of the most beautiful kind. There is no doubt. Vincent Moon has done it again.
