Lido Pimienta - La Capacidad

When a nascent Track Could Bend was in its planning stages, I made some lists of people I wanted to come play the series — and Lido Pimienta was right at the top of my wishlist. An amazing musical talent, she is also an fast-on-her-feet thinker, able to push songs to different places. Alongside Brandon Valdivia and Kvesche Bijons-Ebacher, this song gets past some squalls of feedback (sorry!) to an impassioned coda that is quite different from either the single version or its earlier special-guest-improvising live arrangement. Blowing aside the series' not-really-enforced "no songs" guideline, Pimienta showed there are whole universes of "experimental music" outside of the cloistered little forts its self-proclaimed practitioners sometimes buttress themselves in.

[Lido Pimienta will be appearing in her DJ alter ego Glitclit tonight (August 12th) at The Steady alongside some special guests at the after-party for the Chancha Via Circuito/Austra/Tribe Called Red free show at Nathan Philips Square. She will also be performing Thursday (August 13th) at a free show in St. James Park.]
