Originally released in the summer of 2014 as a cassette by Baro Recordings, Songs Of Forgiveness is now available for the first time on LP in a limited edition of 500 copies via the New York imprint Pre-Echo. Composed by Cantu-Ledesma during his first winter after relocating to Brooklyn, NY, this suite of six discrete tracks are formed by colliding micro orbits of guitar, drum machine, and synth, all purposefully phasing in and out of sync, and painted with chords of ecstatic melancholica and tape hiss that typifies much of Cantu-Ledesma’s work.
Pre-Echo Press was started in 2016 by New York based visual artist Matt Connors as a platform for disseminating a diverse and idiosyncratic array of recorded and printed matter. Beginning with a two LP reissue of musician Jefre Cantu Ladesma's interrelated suites of dream like sonic vignettes, Songs of Remembrance and Songs of Forgiveness, in 2016 the press will publish a monograph of British visual artist Nick Relph's recent photo based works appropriating images from New York City's drastically proliferating construction sites, as well as a facsimile recreation of a recently discovered time capsule-like Gay Telephone directory from 1983, in addition to the the rst volumes of a proposed ongoing series of chap books, documenting the personal object collections of various cultural figures.
