'La Sombra Del Agua' is the fourth studio album by Tajak. It was recorded in Coatepec, Veracruz, Mexico, from March till December 2020 during an isolated residency in the forest. The recording process was quite different from previous experiences. Former albums were recorded much quicker, in one or two days of studio sessions. In this latest album, aside from not being recorded in a studio, it was a much more patient, meticulous and intimate process. The main and intimate process. The maintracks (drums, bass and guitar) were recorded outdoors at the side of the Pixquiac river, a fact which is not very usual. After recording the main tracks, there were several weeks spent afterwards editing, recording overdubs and mixing. In this case a lot more instruments were used than they normally use. They kept the traditional bass, guitar, drums and vocals format, then added lots of layers of texture including field recordings, synths and other instruments like ocarina, sitar, flute, twelve string guitar, thunder drum and tape effects, the last one being a very important and special contribution from Pedro Tirado/Servicios Eléctricos. In the background you can hear the ambient sounds from the morning, afternoon and night at the cloud forest. It's the first Tajak album written completely in Spanish. The influence of the cloud forest was very present in the composition of the album. In many of the songs you can perceive the interactions and conversations between the music and the surrounding outdoors environment. The ending result are seven songs which start with solid structures that are eventually unassembled and molten into a soundscape of fractalic sounds that dance between the spacial and the earthly. Co-release by Little Cloud Records in the US, The Acid Test Recordings in the UK and Hole Records in Mexico. Limited to 350 copies on coloured vinyl.
