Old world melodies, new world eclecticism, traditional roots, modern sensibilities, ... here is an album signed by three singer-songwriters, three seasoned front men whom music has marked forever, guitar heroes, wanderers of long paths, accompanying one another on voice, guitars, drums, percussion, bass, accordion and other instruments of sound, producing a set of songs; strong tunes, catchy vocals, assured voices singing poignant, wry, worldly, funny lyrics, a haunted house melange, blues-rock-folk-jazz-cabaret subversion kind of kick.
Assembled in 2017 in the outback of Geneva by multilingual troubadour Fred Raspail to produce a couple of singles, Los Gatillos was born and emerged from a creative retreat (at a house named Le Gatillon) with enough new songs for an album, and after some sessions in the house and in the studio, and on the desk, here it is: 16 songs, in english, in french and in german, wild and spontaneous songs, dusty folk tunes, ghostly melodies and lingering blues…
Bear witness to the delicious fruit of time-locked moonlighting from three great musicians that you can get nowhere else, in such a concentrated dose, except right here, of course.
