Bella Cantata

A lo lejos veo tu alma
un tanto y cada vez más pequeña
y de a pocos siento tu magia
magia de la que no te siento única dueña

No siento poder encontrarte
pero sigo enamorado de tu ser
lo siento ahí, sin mucho proyectar
esta angustia solo nos hará desvanecer

A distancia dejas posar las artes
de tu silueta concebidas a mi admirar
te deseo ahora, próxima a mi persona
de la traba solo te quiero despistar

Comprendo el silencio en tu hablar cada día
tu proceder de llorar tan sensata
tu prudencia de reír, más hermosa aun
tu manera de luz proyectar, es una bella cantata

Curvas sonrientes deslumbran tu vigor
pronunciándose en absoluta libertad
alejando de mi toda indecente agonía
te afirmo mi amor en plena veracidad

Con estas palabras solo te quiero pedir
que no te alejes de mi andar y recorrido
de lo contrario solo puedo considerar
que mundo andaría locamente empobrecido 

Estamos tan cerca de llegar tan lejos
a los pasos de apreciarte un poco más día a día
y si al besarnos se inventa el verso perfecto
unirme a ti, fue crear poesía

Arte de Mirarte

Estás repleta de mundos amor                
De seguro esto no fue intencional                         
Leerte a besos, no es subliminal                                            
No intencional, fue el amor sin temor  

Inevitable eres con ese humor                                               
Me enamoras siendo tan racional                          
Crece, no se detiene, no hay final          
Yo te quiero y lo digo con clamor                            

Me preguntas cómo tanto pensarte                     
Teniendo aquel poder de provocarme
Y cada día más es desearte                                       

¿Cómo le haces tú para no olvidarme?                
Bella locura de cerca mirarte                                 
Y cuando te veo, logro mirarme

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

frusciantequotes:

The hazy horizon of Los Angeles. Since it proves perpetually unpredictable, it is not odd when one finds their co-conspirators in disparate locales, often smoothing out the vague and jagged status quos that are only a figment of our own minds anyway. Enter KIMONO KULT, who’s initiates include current and ex- members of Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bosnian Rainbows, Swahili Blonde, Le Butcherettes, Dante Vs. Zombies, and Raw Geronimo – all who are adamant that this is not some “all-star” vanity project. In fact, one cannot even SEE Kimono Kult – one can only HEAR Kimono Kult (in theory with the true definition of OCCULT as “something hidden”).

A new project recorded, produced and shot-called by Neurotic Yell CEO and Swahili Blonde mastermind Nicole Turley, Kimono Kult synthesizes all the signature styles and influences from a cream of crop wrecking crew she has at her immediate grasp. Vocally fronted by the untamable Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows) their debut EP “Hiding In The Light”are four songs of electro/dub/afro-beat/ avant-freak/jazz-like conversations of instrumental ecstasy.

Opening the record, you hear Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (Mars Volta, Bosnian Rainbows) backwards string-arrangement on “Todo Menos el Dolor” (“Everything, Anything But The Pain”), initially reminiscent of Scott Walker’s “It’s Raining Today” before the drum machines anchor it into more modern territory. Teri’s shrill vocals plead with hybrid emotion as they tip-toe through the minimalist abstraction, while hallucinatory synths help narrate the tapestry. “Las Esposas” (The Wives) begins with a mysterious spoken-word intro, referencing a taunting, dusty 16mm film that may hold such Jodorowskian phantasmagoria, beckoning the character like an estranged lover as Omar’s slithering guitar line interlaces science-fiction beeps/bloops over Nicole’s pounding electro-rhythm. “La Vida Es Una Caja Hermosa” (Life Is A Beautiful Box) sees some fractured, sour synths filling voids between a post-punk dub foundation, while guitar interplay between Dante White (Dante Vs. Zombies, Starlite Desperation) and John Frusciante help build a mountain of subtle sonic thunder before it all dissolves gingerly into unanticipated silence. The EP ends with it’s catchiest accessible track “La Cancion de Alexandra” (Song Of Alexandra), an anthemic procession of self-realization where devotion and sacrifice hold hands. Some playfully sophisticated strings from Laena Geronimo (Raw Geronimo) push and pull with dueling trumpet lines to the forefront of this defiant, re-imagined march, Teri Gender Bender taking the role of the writhing Pied Piper as the credits begin to roll of this brief but incredibly resonant recording. – Gabriel Hart
