Black Needle Noise / La diosa y el hombre (Feat. Madame ur y sus Hombres)
Echosynthetic has gone through a bit of an overhaul but it wouldn't be the same without the music of John Fryer. I'm fixing that today by bringing you his latest Black Needle Noise single, "La diosa y el hombre" featuring some of the best BNN vocal work ever from Madame ur y sus Hombres. It's going to take a bit of time to get my archives from the old site back up, but new readers should know that Mr. Fryer had his own subsection there and that's a trend that will continue here at the new Echosynthetic Dot Net. Why all the special attention? The short answer is that he's one of the best producers in the business. Ever.
If you're new to Black Needle Noise, what better way to introduce you to the project than "La diosa y el hombre." With each single John works with different vocalists/songwriters from all reaches of music. Madame ur y sus Hombres is the focal point here, and her lyrics about love and devotion help to create one of the most beautiful songs in the storied Black Needle Noise catalogue. The vocals are in Spanish and it is a stark reminder of how compelling the romance languages are when set to song. John's music creates an expansive universe for these vocals to explore. From subtle piano keys to soaring, echoing synths, the score here compliments and intertwines with the vocals in a way that creates something very special. It's a moving combination, and as I have mentioned before, a shining star in the Black Needle Noise story.
