The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, HELADO NEGRO was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called “peñas” provided a foundation for HELADO NEGRO’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. HELADO NEGRO has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork’s Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth.  He also produced Prefuse 73‘s 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian. His new album, Invisible Life, will be released on March 5th, 2013 by Asthmatic Kitty.  Tones whittled out of these places, memories, time and all its impressions, Invisible Life is HELADO NEGRO‘s third full-length album. Singing in English for the first time, as well as Spanish, HELADO NEGRO is assisted by collaborators including Bear in Heaven’s Jon Philpot, Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner, Devendra Barnhart, Matt Crum and Eduardo Alonso. In the way of artists like Caetano Veloso, The Sea and Cake, and even Sade, HELADO NEGRO floats beyond his own identity into that democratic forest of shape and color.

SHEDDING has been a solo vehicle for Connor Bell since 2001, and has released several items over those years available at Ocio and Hometapes. SHEDDING‘s music is meditative and still, eerie and unsettling — yet with a spectacular sense of melody.
