Helado Negro plays The Southgate House Revival tonight!

Helado Negro is touring in support of his new album, Invisible Life (out 3/5 on Asthmatic Kitty). Singing in English for the first time, as well as Spanish, throughout Invisible LifeHelado Negro (aka Roberto Carlos Lange) is a bilingual tour guide into the transcendent zone of wavelength where music is mutually transacted bouncing between artist and listener. It's gentle in its delivery, but dense in its production, reflecting Helado Negro's refined love affair with synthesis, sampling and his own strengthening voice. He's joined throughout by collaborators including  Bear in Heaven's Jon Philpot, Mouse on Mars' Jan St. Werner, Devendra Barnhart, and more. Each help multiply the whispered dream of Helado Negro into a full-spectrum technicolor existence.  

"If 'Dance Ghost' is any indication, it seems that Lange has figured out the dials. The song is wonderfully enticing, making nice use of shaken synths to set a recognizable mood." - Pitchfork

"A throbbing, vibrant sounding cut" -- Stereogum
