Quixosis is an electro-acoustical project by Oakland, CA musician Daniel Lofredo Rota. Untide is a sonic exploration of haunting moods and (at times) hopeful curiosity. The electronic elements are used sparingly and very delicately mesh with the acoustic performances. The result is an album that sounds very organic at the surface, but has immense depth and a slight surrealism that lends to a very rich, and somehow personal experience.
We added virtually the entire album to the OEM rotation library, but some of our favorite entries are Strange Rendezvous, Bellringer (a wonderful dub), and Richter Doesn’t Live Here Anymore.
Untide is available at bandcamp for (name your price or) free. Go pick it up.
