  • Equilibrio reissuing cult Spanish experimental obscurities from the '80s image
  • Equilibrio has shared details of its forthcoming releases. Damian Schwartz's Madrid-based label has six albums in the works, including reissues of highly-coveted records produced in Spain during the '80s. First comes a meditation on the works of French composer Erik Satie by Patricia Escudero. Produced by Luis Delgado and released in 1986, the 16-track Satie Sonneries arranges Satie classics like the Gymnopedies series for synthesiser. The reissue is out this month. The next LP, due out December 10th, is 1983's Dark Fields by the trio T, a rare, 14-track post-industrial album originally released by Klamm Records. January 7th will see the release of new music by Mecánica Popular in the form of Estridentismo, an eight-track LP of material recorded over the last decade (Equilibrios' first release was from Eugenio Muñoz, one half of Mecánica Popular). Future projects include represses of Dr. Flanger's Feria Internacional and Juan Belda's self-titled LP as well as an album of new music from Madrid duo Metametal. All reissues are vinyl-only while new material will also receive a digital release. Listen to Patricia Escudero's interpretation of "Gymnopedie II."
