Ethereal Live is excited to announce the arrival of our first female artists to the net label,  Los Babies. And indeed, it is quite an arrival. Los Babies is nothing like you have ever heard before on the Ethereal Live imprint which crosses deep into the ambient noise territories. These women mean business when it comes to taking their listeners on a trip through the inner and outer spaces.

Los Babies is mascara and Christina Amelia, a noise duo from Kingston and Nyack, New York, USA. In their own words the duo says, “we make sounds using a unique literary structure”.

The Structure:

courtship
vessel
the marriage
portal
other place

The music from Los Babies is a kaleidoscopic collage of sounds that borrows from numerous genres including ambient, experimental, noise, and hip hop. The sampling work done in these tracks is quite impressive which is reminiscent of 80s hip hop and 90s electronica. However, the beats are never the dominant aspect of the music, instead fading in and out much like the other sounds found in their compositions. It seems the only constant is change within the music, which gives this music the ethereal and ambient qualities we like so much.

As the album title states, these tracks were recorded live at “The Kitchen”, somewhere in New York. All samples are the ownership of the artist or borrowed from the public domain sector.
