I recently spent a few days in New York and while there, I had a 45-minute set on Jenn Pelly’s radio show, the New Afternoon Show at WNYU. During Jenn’s show, she played a track from Jefre Cantu-Ledesma’s album Love Is A Stream, which she said was one of her favorite albums from 2010.
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is one of Jefre’s many projects, and his primary one. His music is most nearly shoegaze and noise meshed together to form ambient drone with a very dark and atmospheric aesthetic. This release came out on Type Records, for those who are fans of Grouper you may remember Type also released my personal favorite album of hers, “Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill”. Love Is A Stream is essential drone, the whole album is flawless.
