Video: Uvi.Lov - "Поехали!"


Monterrey’s Uvi.Lov doesn’t take the “cinematic” description slightly. As our friends at Matinée As Hell point out, they’ve caught the attention of academic institutions within the cultural circuit, and they’re taking full advantage of such unsuspected encounters. After musicalizing Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and making a conceptual album out of it, Uvi.Lov is back in the scholar department with a stunning audiovisual piece titled Поехали! (which translates as “Vamonos!”). This time, the band pays homage to Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin (“first human being to journey into outer space”, 50 years ago). “Поехали!” is part of the art exhibit Saludos Gagarin: La Popularidad Irreparable, and brings Uvi.Lov to an astrophysical paradise. Through the accommodation (and manipulation) of historic audio, the song takes us straight to the moment of the launch as it celebrates a man’s journey into spacecraft.

ok, club fonograma is expanding its music taste

it would be great if we finally had acts like ricardo villalobos, luciano, murcof, †‡†, and many other "experimental" musicians (not recognized) at this site, don't you think?

Yeah.
We really like Ricardo Villalobos, would be great if he would actually release more music though... since we started the blog, he has not made an album (although we did include 'Alcachofa' on our Best of the Decade special).

I don't find †‡† or Murcof very intriguing (like at all), but we'll promise to keep an eye on it.

that's fine, the blog is about Latin-American and Spanish bands, and that's what I need to read about

I think a great number of artists here are really overvalued (torreblamca, morrison, she´s a tease...)and there's no space to know about new things, always getting the same

p.s. I LOOK FORWARD TO FONOGRAMÁTICOS #12 AND WANT IT NOW :)
