Spaceland & 89.9 KCRW Presents Church Sessions with Diego Garcia
A boy who sings about love. ...
Diego Garcia was born in Detroit to Argentine parents and on his new solo album, ‘Laura,’ he traces his roots. Garcia was inspired by the loss of love and the classic troubadour movement.
A week before release, NPR and KCRW premiered the full album with dual glowing reviews. KCRW DJ Anne Litt, one of the first selectors to spin Garcia’s new songs, described the album as “A wonderful amalgamation of Diego’s Argentine heritage, 70’s AM pop radio, and the dusty sounds of dreams.”
As the lead single, “You Were Never There,” continued to catch ears across the country, both the iTunes “Single of the Week” and Starbucks “Pick of the Week” programs featured the track.
Billboard Magazine praised Garcia for his “melodic pop sensibility” and “stellar solo debut.” While NPR said, “García’s most brilliant songs are his most anguished ones… at once immense and completely intimate.” The new album shot up the charts, breaking into the iTunes Alternative Top 15 albums, alongside new releases from artists like The Strokes and Death Cab For Cutie.
RYAT with MIGUEL ATWOOD FERGUSON (Brainfeeder)
Brainfeeder’s latest artist RYAT (pronounced “riot”) is the brainchild of Christina Ryat, a producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and sound manipulator who uses live electronics, instruments, pedals, and software to create avant compositional tunes. A recent LA transplant via Philadelphia, this versatile artist has a vast array of musical styles and prestige. Last year, commissioned by the Annenberg Foundation, she composed a French influenced classical piece with traditional Indian dance. With the release of her critically acclaimed big beat album Avant Gold, Ryat followed with an extensive U.S. & European electronic tour. Avant Gold and RYAT’s intense live show caught the eye of Brainfeeder label head Flying Lotus who asked her to join the exclusive roster. Ryat’s latest LP Totem will be released MAY 2012 on Brainfeeder.
Aaron Embry is a songwriter from Ojai, CA.
