We’re fond of pretty much all of the many solo and collaborative musical projects of Roberto Carlos Lange. Under the moniker Helado Negro, his experimental electronic project, Roberto has released three full-length albums. He has recently announced the release of his fourth album, Double Youth. An old childhood poster which Roberto had randomly found when clearing his closet gave the album a “telepathic input”, as the album blurb describes, and also serves as the artwork.
“Seeing the poster after cleaning out a closet evoked a sudden rush of memories, but also a sense of isolation and separation. Who was this person in the photo? And what else had Lange forgotten? The poster’s impact was so significant it framed a new recording process for Helado Negro and now serves as cover art, title, and the conceptual framework for the lyrics and song structures.”
Double Youth will be released on September 2nd via Asthmatic Kitty. To get us excited, Helado Negro has shared the first single ‘I Krill You’. Listen to it now.
