Mueran Humanos – “Horas Tristes”

Brandon Stosuy | March 22, 2011 - 4:00 pm

Berlin via Argentina couple/duo Mueran Humanos open up their dark, danceable self-titled debut with “Horas Tristes,” a slinky, slow-builder that gains momentum continually across its nine minutes. Mueran don’t stick to one particular style, though through a blend of Krautrock, noise, punk, electronica, industrial, and lyrics sung in Spanish, they maintain a definite atmosphere. (Their one-sheet’s description of them as “a garage rock Chris and Cosey” works.) To give you more insight, the vinyl edition of the album’s out via Blind Prophet, the label run by BTW Cult Of Youth’s Sean Ragon, and the first 78 copies arrive(d) with a “randomly selected” card from a German edition of Aleister Crowley’s Thoth tarot deck. (It’s out on CD via Italian industrial label Old Europa Cafe.) Take a listen to “Horas Tristes.”
