Spanish blues group Guadalupe Plata are set to release their fifth album, titled Three Demons, next month. You can watch a video for lead track ‘Corralera Del Veneno’ here > https://thequietus.com/articles/26233-guadalupe-plata-new-album-listen.
The band describe the album as “a new attempt to go further and beyond, in our crusade for regression and the idea of creating our own personal ‘Gris Gris’.” The album sees them tracing back to more traditional folk music from their home country, channeling ceremonial, ‘un-Christian’ sounds.
They continue: “We chose to delve into the sound of the wash tub as the main bass sound, a drum amplified by the minimum number of mics so that it would sound as natural as possible and an electric guitar plugged directly into an amplifier, no intermediaries that would disturb the peace in the monastery.
“We dared to add some new instruments to the mix in some songs, such as a bottle of anise, a beat-up bandurria and some sounds made by old doors, in order to add a little bit of flavour of deep Spain.”
