REVIEW: Orvonton’s “Pequenos Cuentos”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Orvonton is an electronic music project from Mexico, or more specifically sounds that are a mixture of IDM and what some call click or blip-hop. Pequenos Cuentos (Clinical Archives) is an album that begins very subtle, ambient way where things are almost rhythmless in an Aphex Twin way. It takes about two minutes before the sounds multiply in order to pulsate and groove to where it feels as if your speakers will blow up because of all of the bass and low frequencies. It’s a very intense listen that in some parts of the album are a bit like progressive rock, or progressive electronica where it’s as if the song wants to jump track.

I would like to hear this mixed a bit better, as some songs demand a proper mix and some of it sounds sterile, or at least I would like to hear more movement in the mix. Otherwise, it’s a really good album, an album that you cam observe from all angles.
