Vital reissue of the rare 'Poiemusia La Nau Dels Argonautes' LP from Spanish experimental outfit Pep Llopis on superior and increasingly crucial reissue imprint Freedom To Spend. Originally composed as a theatre piece for Salvador Jofer's poem "La nau dels Argonautes" and releaased on the incredible Grabaciones Accidentales imprint, the album takes obvious influence from the American school of minimalism, with Reich-like percussive repetition permeating the piece, yet its steeped in a rich, Mediterranean brew that gives it this unique, out on its own feel. Gracefully gliding between moments of eye-watering orchestral beauty, to moving yet emotionally detached poetry (recited in both Spanish and Catalan), and deep moments of ambient introspection, this is one of those rare singular albums that once you're aware of, are so glad it exists. Much love to Freedom to Spend for presenting this one. (SEALED / MINT).
