Captcha Records got another double dose of awesome up their sleeves!¬† This time by reissuing the two first albums by Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, after the recent success of their quickly sold out third album “Chambers” (which is also getting a repress on Golden with Red Splatter, we’ll get back to you on that soon..).
Lorelle Meets The Obsolete are Lorelle (real name Lorena Quintanilla) and The Obsolete (real name Alberto Gonz√°lez). They are originally from Guadalajara but, after a stint in Mexico City, are now based in Ensenada, Baja California. After playing together in a few bands they began recording their psych-infused garage rock as a duo and also settled on their unusual moniker, which was half inspired by the recurring fictional film in Seinfeld called Rochelle, Rochelle and half by an episode of The Twilight Zone called The Obsolete Man.
They hooked up with Captcha and released their first album ‚ÄėOn Welfare‚Äô in 2011. The follow- up, ‚ÄėCorruptible Faces‚Äô, was released early in 2013. Already onto their third album, they put their prolificness down to music being their first language. ‚ÄúIn the last few years we‚Äôve had a lot of things to say,‚ÄĚ explains Lorena, ‚Äúand for the time being we feel more comfortable expressing ourselves by making music rather than talking or using any other way of communication.‚ÄĚ
These are the second pressings of their first 2 albums, both limited to 500 copies each.
‚Äú…The songs are all superb – the pacing, the melodies, the arrangements; it‚Äôs all done so thoughtfully and with such a clarity of vision that it‚Äôs hard not to be instantly sucked into their weird, dreamy, trebly alternate universe of psychedelic post-punk pop.‚ÄĚ – NORTON RECORDS
