The two albums in this collection are the foundations of Rodrigo y Gabriela. The album Foc was recorded in their small flat in Dublin in Spring 2001. The songs they recorded had been composed during their time travelling across Europe, and drew inspiration from the cities and people they had met. Their recording equipment was no more elaborate than a simple Korg D8 digital recorder set up on a coffee table between them. A home made and early work it was sold from their guitar cases on the street to listeners passing by.

The album re-foc was an attempt to re-imagine some of those early compositions with an expanded sound, while also adding newer songs.  re-foc would go on to be the first official release in record shops, and was for many people their initial introduction to Rodrigo y Gabriela.

Foc has never before been released commercially.  As the sound of Rodrigo y Gabriela developed over the years into what it has now become, they felt that this early, almost tentative work was best left to this learning period of their career. In a similar way, the expanded ‘group’ sound that they achieved on re-foc was also something which they would move away from on future albums choosing to focus more on the direct sound of just two guitars.  Now it feels like the right time to shine a light in the attic, and these albums are now presented in a deluxe hardbound book featuring the two albums on CD and a DVD featuring Rodrigo y Gabriela’s debut TV performance.

This deluxe package is available to pre-order now and will be released on 27th November 2015. Pre-order and you will receive four tracks from the album to download right away.  This package is only available from RodGab.com and will not be sold in shops.

DVD – Other Voices: Songs From A Room

 

Also included in this packcage is the first ever live TV performance by Rodrigo y Gabriela. Recorded for the famous Other Voices TV show the set was performed shortly after the release of re-foc.  The set features six classic Rod and Gab tracks in the intimate and beautiful venue of St. James’s Church, Dingle, Co. Kerry.

Nature’s Way – Record Store Day 7″ Single

NATURES_WAY_FINAL

 

Rodrigo y Gabriela with Oysten Greni will release Nature’s Way on 7″ Etched Vinyl for Record Store Day

 

Available in Record Store Day shops in France, The UK and Ireland on RSD – 18th April 2015

The Story Behind Nature’s Way

Hello all. Last year in Oslo I met Øystein Greni, frontman of one of the biggest and most influential Norwegian bands of the last 10 years Bigbang. Gab and I were first introduced to the band years ago when we saw a live performance from them on a cultural Mexican TV station.

In December 2013 I caught Bigbang live in Oslo and after the show I met Øystein and we became friends straight away. Months later I visited Norway again and after going on a good long run though the Norwegian woods we ended up at his place playing old vinyl records from his huge collection.

He introduced me to a song called Natures Way from an American band from the 60’s called Spirit and I thought it was a great song! Right then we decided to record it without having any plans to release it in any way shape or form. A few days later we met at a studio in Oslo, and after the success of the session we decided to give it a serious try. A month later, during our summer tour in the States, I showed Gab the track and she loved it!

In September, before we started our autumn tour in Europe, she recorded her guitars back at our studios in Mexico and the track was ready! In October the video was shot without any big plans ahead, just for the love of it. A bunch of young and talented Norwegian film makers wanted a song for an idea they had in mind. They called Øystein asking if he had a track they could use and he offered them Nature’s Way.

Three days later and we had an outstanding video and in complete harmony with the lyrics of the song.

This song is not part of any album either from Rodrigo y Garbriela or from Øystein. We hope you like it and if you do please share it with your friends.

RyG Charity Auction – Original Artwork from ‘9 Dead Alive’

Rodrigo y Gabriela are offering the original artwork from their April 2014 album 9 Dead Alive, created from broken vinyl, for auction via their philanthropic arm, B Major, to benefit two animal shelters in Jersey City, NJ and Boulder, CO.

Eleven total pieces are being auctioned for charity – one representing each song from 9 Dead Alive, the album cover, and an additional piece not associated with a song. The pieces are one-of-a-kind, limited to 1/1, and are hand-signed by Rodrigo, Gabriela, and the artist, Eugene Serebrennikov (www.hyp-inc.com).

Each piece is hand-made from broken vinyl record and mounted on 18” x 24” white craft paper. Using a water cutting technique, Serebrennikov molded the broken vinyl to match their corresponding illustrations. Each piece is featured in the liner notes for 9 Dead Alive. Watch a video of the records being created here.

All profits will be split in half and distributed evenly between See Spot Rescued, a canine rescue shelter in Jersey City, NJ, and the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. The auctions will be hosted on eBay and will start at $599.00.

The first 5  pieces (1. The Soundmaker; 2. Torito; 3. Sunday Neurosis; 4. Misty Moses; 5. Somnium) will be listed on Tuesday November 4, ending on Tuesday November 11, with each auction ending in 15 minute intervals starting at 7:15 PM EST. The last 6 pieces (6. FRAM; 7. Megalopolis; 8. The Russian Messenger; 9. La salle des pas perdus), plus the album cover and additional piece, will be listed on Thursday November 6 at 7:15 EST, ending on Thursday November 13, and will follow the same 15 minute interval schedule.

The pieces will be posted for auction here

B Major is an advocacy platform created by Rodrigo y Gabriela to raise awareness for non-profit organizations around the world who support causes close to Rod and Gab, including sustainable, healthy living, responsible world-citizenship, and equality amongst all living things.

 

About the Charities – See Spot Rescued & The Humane Society of Boulder Valley

See Spot Rescued – Jersey City, NJ

See Spot Rescued has a single purpose, to provide a permanent loving home for every homeless dog. See Spot Rescued focuses on saving dogs from high kill shelters in the South, specifically in rural North Carolina, West Virginia and Georgia. All dogs rescued from the shelter are vetted at their expense. They work to make the best possible match between the family and the dog, based on previous history, breed and experience. In addition to being spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and micro-chipped, See Spot Rescued has replaced hips and paid for other life-saving surgeries. They strive to provide veterinary services no matter the medical expense.

Humane Society of Boulder Valley

It is the mission of the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to protect and enhance the lives of companion animals by promoting healthy relationships between pets and people. They were founded more than a century ago in 1902, yet this mission holds true today as they counter animal neglect and cruelty and partner with other animal welfare organizations, sharing the mutual mission of saving more animals’ lives. The Humane Society of Boulder Valley provides shelter and care to more than 8,000 animals each year. Their unique facility includes a behavior modification program, which helps shelter dogs and cats overcome behavior problems; a foster program, which makes it possible for them to help more animals by providing individualized care to those with special needs; and an onsite veterinary clinic that allows us to provide necessary medical support to animals in need.
