Santiago Leyba makes it back on Unknown Precept following the Rooms introductory cassette album released earlier this year. Recorded simultaneously, both releases show the New York-based artist, by way of Albuquerque, New Mexico, portraying the different characters one might have in a broken mind. Sketching a strong criticism of America by means of disorienting vocals and slow-paced electronics, his vinyl debut finds him performing alter-egos of sorts. Ranging from forlorn ballad singing, to more guttural and strained barking seeking to describe a conflict in maintaining a unified persona. Paid labor, sex, and consumer goods. How America tells you to grow up when there is nothing left but complacency or oppression through economic and social means. The shortcomings of humanity. The tangled webs we weave. The impossibility of justice and fairness, and the pressure those things put upon ourselves. Life, Money, Work.
