I haven’t been excited about new music in a loooooong time. But this … this … should be incredible. Too bad the MySpace page is taking forever to load …
Guess I’ll check it out later at home.
ONE DAY AS A LION‘s sound is described in a press release as “a defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It’s a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask.
According to the band, ONE DAY AS A LION‘s name was “taken from the infamous 1970 black-and-white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez, featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: ‘It’s better to live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a lamb.’ This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound.”
“One Day As A Lion” was recorded by Robert Carranza at Ocean Way Recording and was mixed by Mario C at MCJ Studio.
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. Wild International
02. Ocean View
03. Last Letter
