about

Four years after her debut album, Un mapa del alma, for Foehn Records, DJ and producer Shakira Benavides is back with a hand steady from the experience of live gigs, showcases and rehearsals. Without straying too far from the fragile sound of her first album, Pequeño almanaque espacial is one of the most dynamic, lyrical, colourful and imaginative releases on Spain’s well-regarded electronic music scene.
Lucius Works Here has taken on singer Luw, who adds shine to excellent compositions such as “A Diamond Row” and “Caroline Herschel”. Christian A. Korn (Songstore), an experienced sound engineer, has produced the record, bringing out the innumerable details hidden in each track. Pianos, guitars, synthesizers, drum machines, harps and a virtuoso use of the sampler shape and give depth to this effortlessly magnetic work. Matias Bosch

about

Lucius Works Here Barcelona, Spain

In the 90s she toyed with electronic music production but it wasn’t until 2004 that she created her project named Lucius Works Here. In her work, she captures her own field recordings, makes use of samplers as well as monologues taken from films, and mixes them with her own compositions. The style is bright and organic, at times sounding like IDM, abstract hip-hop or ambient folk. ... more

Track Name: A diamond row
I’m done with walking away

I’m tired of doing things the same way
This time I’ll take the blow and stay here

I’m done with walking away (I’m done with it)
I’m tired of doing things the same way (I’m done with it)
This time I’ll take the blow and stay here

I’ve always flown

I've always floated

I've never tried before

Behind the trees a blow

Becomes my diamond row

I saw the biggest flash in town

I heard the moon flying low

I bide my time

But I’m here to fight



I’m done with walking away (I’m done with it)
I’m tired of doing things the same way (I’m done with it)

I’m done with walking away (I’m done with it)

I’m tired of doing things the same way
I won’t stray

I won’t stray

I won’t stray
This time I’ll stay here with you
Track Name: Lecciones nocturnas
Angels taken too high
If you take me
Turn on the white light

Lesson in love
Lesson in love
Lesson in love
Lesson in love
It’s a lesson
It’s a lesson in love

I’ve got an angel in you
And I’ve got a song
Turn on the white light
Turn on the white light

If I were finite
I would just take you
Take me into the white light
Where it’s all finite

What lies before me is true work
A connection to the infinite
To survive in this world
To survive in this world
Track Name: Carolina Herschel
Slide over me

Cable of life

You’re stung on the water
Your head full of light

Carolina

98 years of nebulae
4 ft 3 on an iron hook
Parallax and supernovae
I’m charting the elliptic

Lucretia levitating the night sky
I ride the polished lens
Like tissue paper
Lofting to heaven

Carolina
