Lozk - Meaningless Words

.
Lozk is led by Leonardo Suárez Jiménez, described as a Bogota, Colombian musician and multimedia artist. And you can certainly imagine the visual art he creates because this music is quite cinematic.

The music is also extremely emotional. "Han Sow," for instance, breaks from the strictly electronic nature of much of this album to include what sounds like native instrumentation. These songs are not sung in English, but you can still get a good gist of what Jiménez may be singing about. These are not happy-go-lucky love songs. They are, in contrast, the dark musings of a highly emotional artist.

Many of these tracks are slow and moody. While "Han Sow" has a world music vibe running through it, other recordings sound influenced by some of Brian Eno's quieter ambient sonic experiments. Nevertheless, the album closes with "Amaramarea," which has a sort of funky, Blaxploitation groove running through it that might make it perfect for a movie soundtrack.

It's been said music is the universal language, and this fine project proves that truth. You don't need to now exactly what Jiménez is saying to feel what he's feeling. The music conveys his feelings expertly.
