There is something deeply special about Gabriel Rojo‘s work. This Argentinian artist, recording under the name The Tape Recorders, creates transporting sonic worlds that draw the listener in effortlessly. Gorgeous from start to finish, Wire is an album that must not be missed in ambient, electronic, or experimental circles. The first album from the artist on Somewherecold Records, Wire demonstrates why Rojo was invited to join the label. His work melds beautifully with all the other fabulous artists and, in fact, improves upon the label with his addition. The reviews coming out for the album nail the incredible nature of it’s components.
“The album is like a dream and by the time I was done, I had been on a pilgrimage, at once fully human and transcendently godly (.. ) A compelling listen for lovers of ambient music, or even beginners.”
– Prism Reviews
“Inviting us all into the both literary and kosmische imbued dreams of The Tape Recorders’ Argentine author and music maker Gabriel Rojo, the analogue and synthesized throwback Wire album could be a missing concept from the old German Ohr (or even Sky Records) label. New age visions and vague hints of Klaus Schulze, the Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Mythos and Jean-Michel Jarre stir the emotions on Rojo’s debut album for the ever-expanding Somewherecold label”

I’m not sure I could have said it better myself. Get your copy of the limited CD and, if you are interested in other electronic artists as well, look through the back catalog of the label, add those other albums to your cart and save on shipping by buying more than one CD at a time. It is truly a privilege to have The Tape Recorders join the Somewherecold family of artists.
