Falsos Conejos biography
FALSOS CONEJOS is an instrumental act from Argentina that was founded in 2006 with an aim toward exploring the scopes of improvisation and experimentation and the use of unusual rhythms, harmonies and meters in the rock language. As an inside joke, an early biography of the band read that the band was formed through the initiatives of three music students of Guarani composer Zofal Onejo. as a continuation of this joke, all three members use the word Conejo as their last name (just like THE RAMONES, for instance!). the band?s progressive style is strongly rooted in the psychedelic paragon, but the trio is constantly open to eclectic development when writing and arranging their material: generally speaking, the band?s sound is powerful and versatile, taking elements of progressive, math-rock and post-rock and fusing them in a dynamic unity.

The EP ?AntiTango?, the band?s first effort, was recorded in 2006 and released in 2007: it comprised 7 tracks recorded live at a studio. For the next two years, the band went on performing live gigs extensively in the underground scene of Buenos Aires; they also founded Ciclo MonteConejo, a venue where FALSO CONEJOS and other friend bands performed multimedia concerts, a type of endeavor that the band embraces particularly. In the first months of 2009, the trio started the pre-production of their first long-play CD, on the basis of jams and constructions recorded live in an old house at the outskirts of Buenos Aires during August of the same year. Eventually, this album entitled ?YYY? was released in mid-2010 though the Viajero Inmóvil label.

Falsos Conejos Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Cesar Inca
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Falsos Conejos is the name of this Argentinean power-trio devoted to experimental psychedelic rock under a tight progressive guise. "YYY" is the name of the band's second release and first long-play CD, which confirms it as a major name in their own country's underground rock scene as well as a name worth considering in high esteem from the current South American progressive "movement". This band can solidly explore and enhance the power and energy that the interactions between guitar, drum kit and bass usually generate whenever the musicians indulge in their shared musical expansions. "YYY" took a while to record and produce, a whole year's work, but oh, what a robust demonstration of contemporary prog brilliance it is! 'Estrobos' kicks off the album as a well-crafted exercise of alternations between rough and soft passages, in some sort of Led zeppelin-meets-Guru Guru sort of way. 'Villazon' follows on a more colorful note, firstly dominated by a warm funk-oriented motif, ultimately closing with a brief playful jam; the inclusion of a spacey interlude adds a proper touch of mystery to the whole thing. 'La Cubatera' states a fluid framework full of electrifying textures, controlled use of rocking punch and clean transitions between various motifs. This track might as well serve as the perfect sample of this album's most recurrent qualities. 'Sobrevuelo' sounds like fast post- rock, something like an amphetamine-fed version of Explosions In The Sky aided by the Don Caballero drummer and a guitarist from Sonic Youth: the soaring dynamics portrayed in this track works as a convenient counterpoint to the previous track's patently extroverted nature. For its last minute, this piece shifts toward minimalistic moods, which stage an ambience of anticipation for the next track's starting section: 'El Panq'. Indeed, 'El Panq' establishes quite straightforwardly the band's more muscular side in its main body after the eerie introductory portion. The bass solo is the nucleus of a soft interlude before a brief electrifying coda brings an amazing climax. 'El K-Co' is also very extroverted, but it is also more complex compositionally: the band really takes advantage of its 8+ minute span. Some Wetton-era Crimsonian influences are easily noticeable in the abundant psychedelic nuances that build the track's conclusive crescendo. This track is a definitive highlight of the album, and so is 'Atake DC', which reinstates and deepens the explicit dynamics that has been so predominant in the preceding pieces: 'Atake DC' can be described as a lesson learned from 'El K-Co' that has been ultimately refurbished from a stoner-centered perspective. 'Sierra Maestra' sets a variation in the shape of predominant grayish atmospheres, which at times let some rougher passages drop in and stage sources of diversity: the expanded interlude sounds to my ears like a homage to classic guitar- oriented krautrock and "Ummagumma"-era PF. Filling the album's last 10+ minutes, 'MTPTS' delivers a fluid combination of heavy psychedelic jamming and post-rock moods for the first 6 minutes; then, the band stops playing and we are treated with urban sounds before the trio goes back to music and delivers a blues-like space-rock jam as some sort of surrealistic coda. All in all, "YYY" is a very vibrant album, a testimony of the kind of fire one can expect from the progressive experiments that have been taking place in South American places for the last years. Falsos Conejos has been a real revelation to me and I can't recommend it enough to all prog collectors over the world.
Thanks to cesar inca for the artist addition.
