Artist: ALVARO
Title: Reaching for the Masses
Format: 12"
Label: Hueso
Country: Chile/USA
Price: $16.00
"Singer/songwriter Alvaro was born in Chile seventy years ago, and is still composing and touring. Special mention must be given to Hueso Records and Alvaro, who despite what seemed a curse or jinx carried by this extraordinary work, are finally giving it new life. About the record: It must be said that the circumstances surrounding the record that you hold in your hands are far from normal. The recording was made in 1986 in Exing, Germany, but the master tapes were destroyed in a fire in the studio where the material was recorded along with thousands of other tapes. The original cassette format—as it was released—survived only partially. Producer Anton Bubenick died shortly after due to an excess of alcohol and cigarettes, and there was legal wrangling involving Alvaro and the owner of the studio. In other words, Reaching for the Masses hardly reached anybody. But one thing is certain—the quality of the music has stood the test of time and sounds as fresh as when it was originally recorded—using only regional musicians from a mainly agricultural area. The recording took about 15 days to be completed." - Hueso.

Artist: BOW RIBBONS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Hueso
Country: Chile
Price: $18.00
"Let it never be dismissed as some quaint value. Sincerity is perhaps that final, graceful pirouette towards what the Spanish name duende — an absolute and utter possession, a force of severance from consciousness — having soul. Bow Ribbons‘ self-titled album is a musical testament to the sincerity of its two authors Pete and Willow. A powerful yet un-imposing union between guitar and voice, keys a unique presence that is indicative of Bow Ribbons as both multi-timbral and able minimalist. As alchemically elusive as it is self-confessing — these polarities are much like the sinuous phantoms that glide throughout Bow Ribbons songs. Guitars that bloom and may appear to trail away in despondency or as if following some other train of thought, return just as quickly to invoke the vocal melody and shudder with admittance that, “I know lately that Ive been cruel/ I know lately Ive been mean, too.” The albums grand archaeological revelation, arcs with In Colors. Musical canyons into which Willow leads with lyrical wizardry, before dropping the listener into a free-jazz quake amongst chants of “To Be Love”. The sashay of cymbals and fluency of horns invoke the cavernous waves that eventually roll back to where all things began — at the horizon. Songs that impart the listener to stretch out and challenge the inclination to fill the void with static are increasingly hard to come by. Bow Ribbons is timeless music, for it acknowledges what existed before the embellishments that held the greater half of a century and consequently our habitude in dressing up the song. This does not mean that their music lacks production or pause. The warmth and tonal breadth of Petes guitar work is rousing by way of its subtleties. These songs remind us that space is not a listless vacuum, but instead what lies between is where the Bells Ring out, where the needle is thread through the fabric, where we are reminded to sigh, where we might reflect on a notes absence. At the edge, before the great dip into the void, theres the sense that we are standing with our noses at the tip of a flame or the iciest frost. One might see a flash. One may listen and hear silence as though it was the very first time doing so. Its any number of these things that make Bow Ribbons stand out in noble eloquence. -Nicky Mao, December 2010 "Bow Ribbons walks on each songs tightrope. Gracefully. Tenuously. But you will be the one floating at the end of a kite string; being pulled and flown - slowly then quickly - upwards, sideways and down. Captured by declarations of heartbreak, hopes and the endless strain and love of balancing on dreams. Their songs soulfully release the doves that bless our most intimate and musical hearts - so that in rejoice we may all sing, once again." -Hueso

Artist: LOS PINOCHET BOYS
Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Hueso
Country: Chile/USA
Price: $12.00


"Hueso Records presents its latest vinyl release, an icon of the 1980s Santiago punk scene, never-before published by any music label: Los Pinochet Boys. The record contains the only two studio-recorded songs from 1984:"Botellas contra el pavimento" and "Musica del General", which remained shelved for 28 years on the original tapes of the band members. Now Hueso Records is releasing them to the public for the first time on a 7-inch vinyl, especially mastered and printed in the Czech Republic and in the United States. Jorge Gonzalez of the legendary Los Prisoneros, an important witness of the events, writes: "So the sound of the "Pinochet" was the cross between two non-musicians and two virtuosos with a deep knowledge of tradition. They sounded like nothing else around, they came from nowhere and were not aiming for any kind of success. And yet the two songs that they recorded in the studio are brilliant today, especially when contrasted to the pale efforts of their contemporaries Botellas contra el pavimento, sung by Dani, should have been played over and over on the radio, should have been a classic, should have existed to be shared.The B side, Musica del General, although more traditional, shines as one the greatest examples of Santiago Hardcore, with all their voices galloping through the streets." - Hueso.

Artist: MAESTRO
Title: Este Es El Primer Vinilo De Maestro
Format: LP
Label: Hueso
Country: Chile
Price: $22.00
"M1 (LP, Hueso Records) was originally released independently in Chile in 1997 as "Este es el primer compacto de Maestro" (CD). Co-produced by Carlos Cabezas, It contains one-take recordings made at La bodega de Calera de Tango, and multi-track recordings made at Estudios Konztantinopla.
"Maestro" was an experimental music trio from the late 90 based in Santiago, Chile. During their career, the band released 3 CDs which exemplified their non-conventional approach to music. The band was formed in 1994 when three students (Architecture, Fine Arts and Philosophy) decided to collaborate with one rule: a constant rotation of instruments and roles. Maestros career, although brief, was very diverse, including instrumental minimalisms, popular songs, soundtracks, and even a musical." - Hueso. Limited to 250 copies.

Artist: MINIMAL TECHNOLOGY
Title: Música Para Videoinstalaciones 1991-1993
Format: 12"
Label: Hueso
Country: Chile/USA
Price: $22.00
Numbered edition of 100 copies. "Minimal Technology started in the early 90s in Santiago, Chile when three students ventured into designing sound pieces. After several months of studio recording, a Japanese curator and music publisher Kino Mitsouko took interest in the group. The band took a trip to Tokyo which was later viewed as an artistic experience for the group; MT made a special container-object, similar to mail art, in order to show its work.
The band had only two appearances on stage, one in the room Augustine Siré School of Arts University of Chile and one in the Faculty of Architecture in the same University. They were also interviewed on a live program at the disappeared Radio Umbral, and invited to publish an article of their work in the fanzine Marginal Music.
MT music has been classified as experimental, electro-acoustic, techno and neo-brutalist. "Power On", the best known track of the band, characterized them as a pioneer in sound and composition of electronic music in Chile." - Hueso.
