it took ernesto gonzalez more than three years to record the follow-up for his 'vallée de dith', but it was definitely worth the waiting! 'el telonero' is a tribute to the art of opening up for other bands. this album was created during a period in which gonzalez got more comfortable on stage, often setting the vibe for the night. concentrating on the ultimate tuning-in quality. the loose kraut-inspired jams of his second record are pretty much absent here. the focus is on analog synths and old drum computers, but unlike the whole neo-ambient just-bought-something-analog-and-ran-it-through-my-loopstation-scene this album is a well constructed and elaborated piece of art. taking his inspirations from old masters such as mort garson, bruce haack, angel rada and martin rev, 'el telonero' became a throbbing head spinner that is as much an ambitious third ear experience as an exotic library dream. the whole is heavily fueled by catchy mind melodies.
