Album artwork for A Year With 13 Moons by Jefre Cantu Ledesma

A master of romantic abstraction, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is not new to the scene. In fact, he's been releasing a steady stream of music for nearly twenty years. With the brilliant album 'A Year With 13 Moons', however, the ever-prolific Ledesma appears to be hitting a new high. Or low, depending on how you like to see things. Using a friend's reel to reel tape player, Cantu employed electric guitar, modular synthesizer, drum machine and concrete sounds from his surroundings at the Headlands, recorded while walking to the studio, cooking in the kitchen, talking with friends, the ocean, films he was watching, driving in a car. Everything was record stereo to tape. The result is gorgeous, haunting and sprawling. A companion to his last full length LP, 'Love is A Stream', (Type, 2010), 13 Moons, is a dense, swirling mass.
