The Brvtalist is proud to present a new mix from LDY OSC. The solo project of Alyssa Barrera Auvinen, the Vienna-based, Mexican artist began her musical trajectory in the late 90’s, traveling to Monterrey, Mexico to see DJ’s play before becoming one herself, playing at clubs like Aura, Topaz and Bar Americas. In 2010 she relocated to New York City to attend school, majoring in Music and Sound Engineering. She was always inspired by heavier sounds, something she picked up from her brother who was in an industrial band. Since 2013, Alyssa has been a self taught electronics enthusiast, working on modular kits, DIY synths and more. Her first release came in 2018 on The Bunker New York and a new LP is forthcoming this year on Kontra-Musik. New Brvtalism No. 191 masterfully explores the LDY OSC sound, from rich textures, dark rhythmic moods and immersive atmospheres. Includes track from Damcase (RIP), Mika Vainio (RIP), Pan Sonic, LDY OSC, Interstellar Funk & Parrish Smith, Christian Vogel, Vanligt Folk, Artefactos de Dolor, Cindytalk, Franck Vigroux and more.
Artefactos De Dolor - La Niña
In addition to her solo work, Alyssa is also the vocalist for experimental post-punk act Artefactos De Dolor (Spanish for Pain Artifacts). Along with Todd Sines and Charles Noel, the trio is set to release their debut album, La Niña, at the end of the month. The album is a cathartic exercise, confronting the pain that exists in all of us. Each song exposes a facet of pain that manifests inside the outsider; the local; the nomad; the hermit; the dreamer; the thinker; the scorned; the lover. We’ve been following the group for a little bit and love their take on different genres and the pure ritual experience of the live show. Artefactos presents a powerful sound which is clearly influenced by the human experience and we’re excited for the first LP. Expect it out July 29th via Rush Hour Distribution.
