Nohayquepreocuparsepornada is a collection of original songs by Marcelo Radulovich deeply rooted in the much treaded soil of rock’n’roll. Rock, yes, but of the 21st century kind, heavily influenced by a deft use of samples, mangled keyboards, field recordings, toy instruments and lush production. Recorded at Titicacaman Studio in Cardiff, CA, between 2004 and 2013, Nohayquepreocuparsepornada features the great talents of Enrique "Bugs" Gonzalez (Los Lobos, Jumbo, Plastilina Mosh) on drums and Marcelo on all other instruments and voices.
The music is vibrant and creative, a healthy blend of many genres and styles, the result of percolated years of slow grinding. The songs come across as offerings to the great gods of rock'n'roll, to the deities, the muses of art, to the surreal poetry of latin america, to strobe lights in a disco, to seeing the glass as half full, to an existential approach to ascension... little offerings of funky love pie baked by latinos. The album rolls on through 13 tunes, 7 in english, 4 in spanish and 2 instrumentals. Driving music, rich and colorful, a little dissonant at times, a tarty sweet at others, a strong pulse and drumming galore always present. Word plays in lyrics add a lack of coherence, stories told through symbolism, gibberish and myth... some manic dude yelling at you in spanish, you don't have to worry about anything, while he himself frets and bangs thrift store instruments in a small bathroom. Across the street, a blind beggar with a noisy speaker outside a church in San Jose, Costa Rica, wah wah leads, I am the good shepherd who tends to your daily needs, and we all wonder, what would come from a rat having intercourse with a snake? Mas Alla time stands still, speeds up and reverses, we are glad gluttons, and glad of it! Trying to make Fred rise through the sad wails of a lapsteel, lunching intricate, sultry salads en el pueblo, talking about how deep runs the water as it enters the throat, delivered by the queen. Now calling volunteers, calling citizens who took out machine while adding flux at the end of the day, all yell Nohayquepreocuparsepornada!
