The Crystal Ark Invite You To “Morir Soñando” (Die Dreaming)
A second advance from their debut album for DFA
Weeks ago, we gave you news of the arrival of The Crystal Ark ’s debut album here. And at the time, we told you that the project, initially a twosome (Gavin Russon and vocalist Viva Ruiz), had grown into a band including two bassists, a percussionist with plenty of experience in Afro-Latin rhythms, two additional vocalists, and a second musician well-versed in synthesizers. Together they have recorded eight songs with mixed rhythms, including this “Morir Soñando”. It might be Viva’s accent and Alberto Lopez’ congas that call to our minds images of a block party in the middle of Spanish Harlem. The album will be out on the last day of October on DFA.
