La Mano Ponderosa

by Marcelo Radulovich

The experiment was: use only an iPod and its apps + voice, create the illusion of a band. 8 songs in spanish, 2 in english. There's depth & hooks & lots of details, strange and unique... songs to play while driving with the top down on a clear night.

Album Notes
La Mano Ponderosa is Marcelo's 13th solo album, 10 colorful songs that keep growing like a chia pet with each listen, as beats, melodies, surreal, tropical imagery (8 of the songs are in spanish), as hooks and a myriad of musical styles flutter the speakers, as nuances and details come twirling into the earhole, asking for a repeat listen and another Cuba Libre.

"Radulovich's palette is unique.... While it may appear oddball at first blush, there is such variety and a sense of wonder that it somehow pulls together delightfully...."
Steven Loewy - All Music Guide

"Chilean-born Radulovich crosses the line to the positively mythopoeic. The music dances in a crazed Bataille-like sunshine of chants, found sounds, telephone dial-up tones, primal screams and marketplace banter."
Matt Ffytche - The Wire

"Like the ghost of 'Scary Monsters' era Bowie returning to haunt the aether following an extended stay in a parallel dimension."
David J (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets)

“His work is surreal, DIY, tech-savvy and experimental in a way that the corners of your mouth get a little salty, in a good way.”
Bobby Bray, The Locust / Innerds (San Diego CityBeat)

"Clever, beguiling and compulsively listenable, Radulovich crafts a sonic playground atop the avant-garde pavement laid by Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa and Faust. His playful, Dada-inspired wordplay isn’t an entirely new concept, but the way it’s contorted into foreign, glitchy noises with the use of computer technology suits the inventiveness of his soundscapes perfectly ... fresh and deeply inspiring ...."
Todd Kroviak (San Diego CityBeat)

"...he took us far beyond the common boundaries of a concert. Apocalyptic, primitive, and original video images were combined with field samples and rhythmic recordings upon which Radulovich's live vox shimmies like a shaman...."
Mary Leary - SD Reader (Concert review)

"Wonderfully experimental & progressive, this musical collagist follows his muse through an innerworld of oddly seductive night-flights."
Music Advocate

"Just when music seems to have hit an originality roadblock, along comes a musician like Marcelo Radulovich."
The Scene

"Pendant harmonics fold in upon themselves, collapsing into blackhole drones or metallic clatter....Thumb comes over like a fantastic travelogue, allusive - and elusive...."
Philip Sherburne - The Wire

“Even by experimental standards, Marcelo Radulovich's music is pretty strange stuff... very strange, but highly listenable.”
The One True Dead Angel
