TÂCHES – Mi Destino
I was rather hoping that TÂCHES would have been an abbreviation for moustaches. Sadly, I suspect it’s Spanish for Tapes given that TÂCHES is from Los Angeles via Barcelona. Anyhow, the track – Mi Destino – is a rather wonderful one. It’s a strummed guitarish thing with a singer songwriter feel but with tribal and samba elements. This is rounded out with all manner of electronic trickery and hand claps to leave something quite magical and delightful. Ignore the cold, focus on the return of summer.
Blurb: I made this with Sam in a hot LA apartment early this year. I was drinking from a selection of the finest ‘novelty’ size ice tea cans they do in the US and Sam had water. Also that seagull in the picture killed a pigeon while I was finishing this off. I saw it fall out of the sky. Quite majestic really – circle of life and that.
