El Yunque takes up residence in the Barak, Hasselt; an experimental platform they shaped through combination of prodigious improvisation and near-autistic nois. Their 2nd full length album "Boxes" will be released in January 2017.
The album is a sonic boom of a mess and it’s great. They’re pulling from Swans, Boris, and maybe even Steve Albini’s collected hits of Noise. Tired of Dressing Like a Girl’ is short and solemn. Nafi’ is a lightning bolt of speed, while ‘Deer’ is dark and super cool, it’s emptiness comes from silence and Pink/Metal Machine Music-esque feedback, whilst ‘Cinder’ is probably the most imposing track El Yunque have ever recorded. It’ll impress any and all first dates, even more so than that shattering scream at the beginning of Pharmakon’s ‘Milkweed/It Hangs Heavy’.
