Gauchos de Media Noche - Vol. 2 EP

4.0/5.0

October 2nd is REGENERATION DAY II, when the Sapiens label serves up five brand new EPs all at once and the second one comes from Argentinian band Gauchos de Media Noche. The first REGENERATION DAY back in May was a huge success with Mooglie's release picking up more than one million streams and counting on Spotify, as well as being supported by Austin on Spotify ‘crate diggers’ and Bandcamp, so it very much succeeded in its mission to support and highlight the most exciting emerging artists from all over the world in these difficult times.

October 2nd is REGENERATION DAY II, when the Sapiens label serves up five brand new EPs all at once and the second one comes from Argentinian band Gauchos de Media Noche. The first REGENERATION DAY back in May was a huge success with Mooglie's release picking up more than one million streams and counting on Spotify, as well as being supported by Austin on Spotify ‘crate diggers’ and Bandcamp, so it very much succeeded in its mission to support and highlight the most exciting emerging artists from all over the world in these difficult times.

Gauchos de Media Noche is a mysterious project that describes itself as "the meeting of three modest creoles in search of the epiphany that is revealed behind the clear indulgent shadow. It is also a horse that dreams of being a man under the love of a gentle carob tree." It is founded by Hernan Corera, a prominent and award wining film director and Rolling Stone photographer who has made high profile commercials for the likes of Coca Cola and won a Latin Grammy for his music video "Gallo Negro" for IKV.

Musically his Vol. 2 EP kicks off with atmospheric ambient and acoustic guitars on 'Los Negritos', takes in dreamy electronica on 'Sophrosyne Σωφροσύνη' and beautiful modern classical piano playing on 'José Hernandez (Trenes A Catedral)'. 'Romancero Gitano' is a detailed soundtrack that awakens the soul with its richly layered synths and fine sounds while 'Fontanelle' is an edgy and intense melodic affair with crystalline keys and celestial pads all suspending you in mid air. 'Calle Mayor' ends with more pensive and escapist ambient charms that leave you in a state of bliss.
