Helado Negro, the experimental electronic project of talented prolific musician Roberto Carlos Lange, has announced the release of his third full length album entitled Invisible Life. The new effort will drop on March 5th via Asthmatic Kitty.
This year alone, Roberto has been busy working on other projects. He released one of our Album Picks of the Year with ROM, his project with Matt Crum. He also started Ombre, a collaborative outfit with Julianna Barwick, and together they released a gorgeous debut album, among many other collaborations.
Invisible Life features contributions from collaborators including Bear in Heaven’s Jon Philpot, Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner, Devendra Barnhart, Matt Crum and Eduardo Alonso. As the press release explains, “each help multiply the whispered dream of Helado Negro into a full-spectrum technicolor existence”.
The upcoming album “is a wake-and-take-off kind of record, tones whittled out of time and all its impressions, not to mention Roberto’s refined love affairs with synthesis, sampling, and his own strengthening voice (always bilingual, the son of Ecuadorian immigrants)”.
‘Dance Ghost’ is the first enticing taste to emerge from the album, listen to it beneath.
