We love Jose Ayerve’s project, A Severe Joy. He just sent word of a new project in which he will release 10 singles throughout 2012, each being delivered on limited edition plexi-disc records that have been lathe-cut and numbered by Jeremy Leclair of Various Artists Records in limited quantities for purchase online. The first one, â€œNo. 1,â€ will ship on February 21 and features â€œI Am a Real Machineâ€ – a track stemming from the SOUND + VISION art installation at North Dam Mill in Biddeford this past November. Accompanying the single is the excellent Spanish language dance track, â€œDÃ©jame Tocarâ€ (â€œLet Me Touchâ€).
Stream the first single now.
