LBR     008     HABLAN POR LA ESPALDA : SANGRE                          LP      09.2015

Sangre (Blood) is Hablan por la Espalda's fifth album, recorded between 2014 and 2015
in Montevideo, Uruguay, and produced by Nicolás Demczylo (Santé Les Amis guitarist).
Musically, the album continues the legacy of its predecessors, Macumba (2009) and
Celebración (2012), deepening the psychedelic rock and post-punk connection with local
influences from Afro-Uruguayan candombe. On a philosophical level, the album was
inspired by dramatic circumstances that members of the band experienced between 2012
and 2013. Hablan por la Espalda is one of the most important bands in the Montevideo
rock scene. The band formed in 1996, when its members were merely teenagers, and were
pioneers in the then-burgeoning local DIY hardcore scene. With time, the band's sound
mutated from rudimentary punk toward a form of psychedelia, born from the fusion of
blues and hard rock, along with other visceral expressions such as candombe, the
ritualistic sound of the Afro-Uruguayan drums. HPLE have been known for their wild
stage antics, which earned them a bad reputation in their early years; they were banned
from many venues in the Uruguayan capital. That didn't stop the group, which has since
expanded into a septet including percussion and organ, from touring much of South
America, Europe, and United States. 150-gram LP. Edition of 500.
LBR     9       OPUS ALFA               OPUS ALFA                       LP      03.2017

Opus Alfa was a blues-rock band that was founded in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1970.
The band experimented with electric blues-rock and other genres, either merged with
tango, or "baroque" music incorporated with violins, flutes, acoustic guitars and the
bandurria. This excellent s/t album was originally issued in 1972.
LBR     10      DIAS DE BLUES           DIAS DE BLUES                   LP      03.2017

Dias De Blues (from Montevideo, Uruguay) was formed in 1972 by Jorge Barral (bass),
Daniel Bertolone (guitar) and Jorge Graf (drums). They developed a blues and heavy
rock style that was characterized by the virtuosity of the musicians, a straight
ahead rhythmic base and lots of energy and aggression. With all these elements the
band created mind bending, extensive improvisations. This is a reissue of the band's
1972 album.
LBR     11      JORGE "FLACO" BARRAL    CHAU                            LP      03.2017

Jorge "Flaco" Barral was one of the most charismatic and unique artists in Uruguay's
early '70s rock and blues scene. Before recording this work he had played with highly
rated bands s.a. Opus Alfa and Dias De Blues. This is a relevant title for fans of
Latin American underground rock music.
