Tune du Jour: Quixosis – “Aguas”

“Aquas”, the title track from the Ecuadorian act Quixosis’s latest EP, is an interesting journey home. From the song’s virtual liner notes:

Made in Quito, Ecuador, Aguas represents a return to the roots for Quixosis who recently left the California Drought, literal and figurative, in search of water to quench thirst, and make fertile ground. This is a perpetual return home.

It’s a gentle electronic ambient vibe that I found pleasantly intoxicating, much like the Ecuadorean capital to where Quixosis returned. I enjoyed it so much I linked the entire five-song EP here. For easy access. I hope we cross paths one day.

“Aquas” is available from from the music collective QTZLCTL.



Attention musicians, record label reps or fans: Got a suggestions for a Tune du Jour? I’d love to hear it.

Each weekday at noon Eastern Time Piran Café spotlights a new or recently released song from smaller or independent labels to our rapidly growing audience. Genre? None. So long as it’s good. Suggestions are most welcome and encouraged – do get in touch. Please include press info about the song /album /artist, and links to video, audio or both. The more info, the merrier.

CURRENT FOCUS: Since I’ll be based in Colombia through the latter half of August, I’d love to focus as much as I can during that time on new or emerging artists from South America. Obviously, exceptions will always be made. Just trying to keep it local. Thanks!

Catch up with last week’s picks here, and listen to the best of this month’s selections on Soundcloud.
