EL GRAN CHUFLE – WAITECAS / HR-13 / 12″ VINYL / 2012
Debut record from Paris-based El Gran Chufle comes to you as “a D.I.Y. hi-fi creation inspired by Patagonian yeti rituals, Titicaca lake UFO landings, spiritism and voices coming out of the strange cosmogony of the Waitecas (a disappeared ethnicity native to the fjords & channels of austral Chile), partly guided by the worshipping of supernatural beings and as a result of a myriad selection of unusual instruments: farfisa organs, theremin, xylophone, bass organ, drum-trigging-guitars, Bolivian flutes… not to mention the sublime vocals by Georgina Treloar”; this meaning handcrafted surf-noir instrumentals, motorik outer-space improv, hypnotic dream-pop grooves that often morph into their own brand of acid-drenched easy-listening. Recorded in Paris and London, mixed by Laurent Dagoret and Acid Pauli (The Notwist). Published by HR in an edition of 500 copies.
