Listen to Miseress
Mueran Humanos, the Argentinian but Berlin based duo made up by Carmen Burguess and Tomás Nochteff, just released their sophomore album "Miseress" on ATP Recordings, continuing their post punk, industrial inflected synth explorations first introduced on their 2011 self-titled debut album. Burguess and Nochteff share the vocal duties, all sung in their native Spanish, but with an emotiveness that transcends any language barriers.
Recorded at Burguess’ and Nochteff’s home in Berlin, and mixed in Einsturzende Neubauten’s studio andereBaustelle by engineer Boris Wilsdorf, ‘Miseress’ bounds between the foreboding and the abstract to more frenetic sounding pop. Each song is treated as a separate entity, allowing the record to come together as a whole organically. Mueran Humanos encourage listeners to understand ‘Miseress’ as you might a thunderstorm: natural and inevitable, it moves seamlessly from beautiful to scary, sad to ecstatic, sliced with points of rage but also flecked with calming lulls.
