Asturias, ES-based Luis Solís has composed behind the Bacanal Intruder alias since 2003, slowly and carefully crafting his personal world of sounds. These eleven tracks, his third album, are the perfect measure of his world. Blending organic and electronic elements with acoustic instruments and digital processing he synthesizes a wide musical universe (folk, post-pop, electronic, ambient, toy-pop...) that goes from the saddest melody to an uncontrollable euphoria - from lively, glitchy, upbeat rhythms to calm, dreamy landscapes.
Do While, If Else was all played (guitars, violin, keyboards, bongos, flutes, maracas, ukulele, cavaquinho, glockens, xylo, double bass, singin’ voice), programmed (trumpets, tuba, horns, clarinet, marimba, beats) and mixed by Luis. It was mastered by Conrad Magabo, artwork designed and hand-printed by Aaron Powers.
"a bold mix of folk, "toy-pop", and ambient rock." -Newdust
"these are beautifully and meticulously composed songs, and they form a unique patchwork here." -Foxy Digitalis
"Lo que prima y da coherencia al conjunto, ése norte del que hablábamos antes, es el inimitable cruce de elementos orgánicos y electrónicos, su mezcla de pop de dormitorio, folk campestre, música electroacústica... y todo lo que cae en sus manos. " -AvantFolk
