Fax and Braulio Lam Release Follow-up to Mixed Signals

Ruben Tamayo and Braulio Lam have released a follow-up to their finely crafted Mixed Signals 2020 release on Dragon’s Eye Recordings. Mixed Signals II landed Friday.

These four new pieces were recorded in Mexico, “between Tijuana and Mexicali” according to the notes. They combine acoustic instruments with electric guitars, field recordings and synthesizers.

You’ll find yourself turning this one up more often than down – a relatively unique quality among ambient releases. That’s due largely to the delicately performed guitars and fascinating field-recording selections. While the two often work in contrast with one another, their combination is inspired.

One of this week’s easiest listens.
