Languis “LA” is the band’s 13th record. Originally conceived as a retrospective album with past recordings of the band, “LA” took a form in itself by the suggestions of NY label CD-Rt, choosing the songs and the order of them. At the end of the process “LA” became a bit of a lost record that presents the band’s classic melancholic melodic/ambient style. The songs have taken years to come together as one release, but now it is clear that it is meant to be this way.
From the first workspaces in Altadena, Ale’s apartment in Hollywood, to the depths of the Eco Village basement in Koreatown and the guest house haven in South Pasadena, the songs in “LA” do end up portraying the city that Languis chose as their home. The sun is up, the sky is blue, and there’s no traffic on the 110 freeway. Your car speeds up and the windows are open. At the time Ale and Macros were unaware of its impact but in the end, LA served as a profound influence for this collection of songs.
