El Hombre Trajeado

It’s a genuine delight to announce that influential Glasgow four piece El Hombre Trajeado have not only reconvened, they’ve only gone and recorded a new album.  ‘Fast Diagonal’, their first long player in twelve years will be released through Chemikal Underground on December 2nd, but you can pre-order it NOW and have a listen to ‘Do It Puritan!‘ featuring the extraordinary vocals of Sue Tompkins (Life Without Buildings)…

A stoutly democratic alliance featuring the acclaimed flamenco punk guitarist RM Hubbert and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Jones (Sound of Yell, Arab Strap), Glasgwegian mutant-disco kings El Hombre Trajeado return after a decade’s absence with the album ‘Fast Diagonal': a firework display of irresistibly warped beats, basslines and bleary-eyed synth work gilded by appearances from guest vocalists Sue Tompkins (Life Without Buildings), Ela Orleans and Sao Paulo-based Chris Mack (James Orr Complex).

With beautifully intuitive artwork by award-winning, Glasgow based artist Toby Paterson, ‘Fast Diagonal’ is a triumph of abstract melodicism or, as producer Paul Savage commented in the studio: “like a math rock band doing the soundtrack to Gregory’s Girl”.
