“Chilean by way of Brooklyn artist Joao Da Silva has been quietly building an impressive discography of droning guitar electronics that can vacillate significantly between dark terrors and bright, shimmering expanses of sound. These two new limited tapes (one a split release with La Mancha Del Pecado) provide an exceptional overview of his widely varying, yet consistently excellent music.” –

“The latest release by Luciernaga is super limited edition cassette (only 20) entitled, Tile. Side A consists of 5 recordings of ethereal sounds & textures, all untitled other than a brief explanation of the devices or instruments used to create the them – bow scraping on metal, treated guitar, detuned guitar loops, a Tibetan prayer bowl, followed by slide guitar with e-bow. Each track has it’s own deliberately meditative quality and you are gently pulled into one after another with ease. Don’t let the seemingly abrasive “bow scraping against metal” deter you… Without this knowledge, I doubt one would really guess what was utilized for the composition.

Side B, again is an invitation to the listener to get lost in the recording, as a continuous loop repeats for the 22 plus remaining minutes of the cassette.” – Spring Break Tapes

“What begins with a point of sharp feedback and dialtone drone becomes covered in guitar notes and eventually an onslaught of guitar distortion. When I thought that Side A was ending there were these small “tings” being made but it actually did come back for more experimental madness after that.” – Raised By Gypsies
