Marinero - Chicano DELUXE EDITION

15.00

Marinero is the solo guise of Jess Sylvester, a San Francisco native. Drawing from life in Califas as well as time spent in Guadalajara, his songs inhabit several times and places at once, be it the esquinas of lowrider-era Mission Street, the sepia-toned Jalisco villas of his abuelas, or the eternal ever-reaching California coast. Rooted but always musing on what came before and what could have come to be, Marinero’s music floats between the familiar and the fantastic, like a half-remembered dream of Don Quijote.

Sylvester’s other current projects also lie in this threshold, from the Pan-American digital pop duo Francisco y Madero to the lost-in-time no-fi Nuggets punk of Violent Change. Marinero brings it all together -- sampled breaks, hectic live percussion, harmonized vocals, fuzz guitar, maracas, flutes, Omnichords and laptops can all be summoned to bring forth the vibe by any means necessary.
