about

Created alongside his better known and more often performed work, Island Universe Story: Selected Works compiles songs chosen from three Island Universe Story tapes, released between 2012-2014, and puts them to vinyl - on a special limited edition clear tinsel LP.

If the Island Universe Story cassettes were subconscious representations of other worlds in his and our shared imagination, this limited edition vinyl represents the leakiness between those worlds. Some of the records contain silver threads, the sheddings of those dreamy beasts that have joined him on stage in cities all over the world, animated by new friends in each venue where Helado Negro has performed.

Other records in this limited pressing contain other colors of tinsel, the remnants or rumor of other realms in the multiverse, the blue, gold, or multi-colored metallic sweepings left behind by creatures we haven’t yet met and can only imagine.
