What they said about Pedro
'Don't know much about Pedro, but this six-track EP is a find.
Extended DJ Shadow-style workouts
which sound like the incidental
music to unmade 70s kids TV programmes'
'Touched by melancholia Pedro blends cottage electronics with
gentle breaks to produce six quite lovely tracks that though simple, should
be heard by post-rockers and beat connoisseurs alike.'
'Apologies in advance for the grandiose statement. But this is music
full of human spirit, made for the soul. Thankyou melodic. 5/5'
'A six track EP that reaches parts other records wouldn't even dare
try. Drop the needle and watch time stop. Enough to shame lo-fi
non-believers into preaching door to door.'
'Like DJ Shadow mixing John Coltrane at 3.00am.'
'Pedro strikes a gorgeous chord with delicate folk lattice
flickers glimpsed through the grain of a crackly four-track'
'Perfect for those 'Condor' moments'
'Pedro deals in exquisite, almost bluegrass acoustic pickings,
like a traumatised Tortoise with Steve Reich tendencies. Irresistable.
'Pedro mixes music workshop simplicity with cut ups and beats
and gradually walks hand in hand towards the beach at
sunset with DJ Shadow helping out a more pastoral Felt Nearby. The stuff
'Broken amp melodies and rusty valves flicker out pure gold in
'Joy. A new label and a new artist and a real sense of wonder to this
EP that sounds like an unearthed gem from time ago.'
