the bride of dynamite by rio en medio

I spent four hours in the studio carving through pages of magazines until I had created little topographical facsimiles in layers of fading pages of Time and Life. Collage and sculpture, but deconstructed and considered through mass media and popular culture. I might've been trying to copy Danielle Stech Homsy's methods, trying to get close to what she manages to do on The Bride of Dynamite. Here, she uses a variety of different instruments to explore and expand the sonic space that encompasses her new folk aesthetic, and through a keen lyrical precision carves an enchanting relief. For years this album has always been my point of departure to an imaginary place with an abundance of valleys.
