The summer of 2010 brought Luis Terreros back to the studio to record his new album Trivialidades, and after almost a year of production, with the collaboration between the stellar cast of artist Terreros, producer Inti Maldonado, engineer Lou Gimenez, drummer Mark Flynn, grammy award winning mixer Pablo Arraya and master enginner Tatsuya Sato from Sterling Sound has resulted in a charismatic set of seven new tracks (six in Spanish, one in English) boasting tight, clean rhythms and rich vocals.
Trivialidades is even more charged with electronic sounds and loads of acoustic and electric guitars than Terreros' first album 'Ecos Lucidos' and resembles contemporaries like Mexican pop rock band Zoe and canadian Arcade Fire while also carrying heavy nostalgic weight harking back to Spanish rockers like Gustavo Cerati and Babasonicos. Trivialdades is a well worked album dishing out a gumbo of sounds from indie and electric pop to alternative latin rock, all the while comfortably crossing over cultural and generational musical territory, something this team seems to be especially good at doing.
The Tryptics are an indie rock band based in Brooklyn, NY. Combining heavy synthetic rhythms with melancholic vocal melodies their music is defined by their dynamic fusion of rock and electronica.
The band recently returned from their first international appearance, headlining the FALM Festival in Bogota, Colombia in October. Currently, they are working on their first LP due for release this coming… fall. In the meantime, they have been promoting their two new singles, "Hologram," and "Go With the Flow," across America and abroad.
Daniel Imaña and Charles Preston began The Tryptics together in New York City during the summer of 2009, subsequently producing and releasing a self-titled EP which combined Daniel's experience as a recording engineer/producer and Charles' intricate knowledge of singing and songwriting. Upon adapting their studio compositions for the live audience, they played as a duo throughout Brooklyn for a year, until meeting guitarist/keyboardist Santiago Muñoz who would ultimately enhance their sound and live performance. Since the completion of the band's full line-up, they have consistently headlined numerous shows throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn as well as having been voted the #1 Brooklyn band on 101.9 RXP FM radio.
Keen on maintaining the momentum they have created over the past few months, The Tryptics are eager to continue promoting their new singles and the rest of their music worldwide as they head into 2011.
