Ô PARADIS / La Boca Del Infierno (2005)

La Boca del Infierno (Hell's Mouth) is an experimental neo-folk album that guides the listener through a dark, dreamy, dreary and majestic journey into a world of sound and implication. It has the usual instruments that folk relies upon but uses them in a very odd and very reserved way; it weaves in electronic loops, voices, sound effects and haunting  percussion that isn't music but is nevertheless essential to the experience. If neo-folk is something you enjoy you should try it but keep an open mind and be prepared for something that defies convention.
