Beautiful, fuzzy and stringy indie Latin pop

Monótono demais. Não gostei da minha experiência com "Phasor". Achei um álbum muito sem vida, com músicas que parecem cortinas de fumaça, distantes e sem direção. Não há nada aqui que agrida os ouvidos, então por isso não é justo dar uma nota baixa demais, porém é um álbum muito insípido em todos os aspectos: melodia, vocais e letras. Não recomendo.

I"slands seem lonely now
Float miles to see your face
String hearts to hearts, sing now
My voice changes so you know"

Phasor is nice. It's very soft and dreamy, making it an ideal ambient listen. It just doesn't get much further than that unfortunately. "Best For You and Me" is the only song that I think has a lot of staying power. The fuzzy synth bassline gives it more drive than the other pieces and the pianos and echoey backing vocals are nice touches to build up a more psychedelic atmosphere. Roberto has a warm voice but his approach here feels quite limited with little variation from track to ... read more

Never heard of this man before, but this album is a really nice album to just chill to.

A standard Helado's album. Pleasant neo-psychedelic indietronica that you forget that it even runs in the background.

Beautiful record. It is a bit short, and I wish there was more ambient expanses, but overall another absolutely solid release!

This guy doesn't know how to make bad music. Every project is a new venture into beautiful neo-psychedelia, and this is no exception. A solid addition to an outstanding discography of records so far.

Очень фоновая штука. Приятно под неё позаниматься своими делами, не концентрируясь на музыке, но когда захочется провести с альбомом время наедине, ему нечего будет вам предложить стоящего. Инструментальные минуса с примесью легкой синтовой электроники чересчур ... read more

Misturando muito bem o espanhol e o inglês, ele prova que o Fisk está em dia! É um álbum com várias nuances…começa com música filme feliz de sessão da tarde, vai para música de um dia tedioso e chuvoso e termina com você querendo se m4t4r por não ter seu amor correspondido. Mas isso que torna gostoso ouvir o álbum, a maricona não tem medo de ousar e da para perceber o tanto que ele se divertiu ... read more

GOOD. Helado Negro's PHASOR is a beautifully bilingual Indietronica record with a smooth if a little sleepy listening experience. While it is somewhat easy for all the tracks to blend into one another, it's just as easy to get lost in these tracks as it is to lose track of these tracks lol.

It's a funky and atmospheric listen, which occasionally becomes beautiful and well defined. It's works really well.as a full experience. Well, except the wildly experimental passages at the start of pretty much every track. They don't really work for me in context with the rest of the album and, especially when they happen at the end, pull me out of the dreamy world these tracks do so well to construct. It's still a great listen overall, but it could be a lot better as a full listen if it was ... read more

The vibes here are beyond immaculate

Feels so wrong of me to say, (because it's mean), but even if the music is kinda, somewhat, just a little bit forgettable. You play it again and it's so relaxing and warm, and oh so soothing. I do like it. It calms me.

3 Favs: LFO (Lupe Finds Oliveros), Echo Tricks Me, Flores

On first listen I found this to be pretty blurry and mostly in one ear and out the other, but those last three tracks were definitely the best here in my opinion. I would definitely check those out, and the rest is pretty decent background type mellow pop for me but nothing I really want to return to. Not bad though.

Liked this record a lot! Great for casual listening, some scrumptious ear candy. I don't have anything beautifully profound to say. Just some good stuff here.

This album completely took me by surprise. This album is fun, sad, bopping, and introspective all at the same time. Great bilingual indie electronic album. I am excited to hear more from this artist. I reccomend.

Favorite Tracks: "LFO", "I Just Want To Wake Up With You", "Es Una Fatasia"

i think for the most part this has some pretty mediocre material, its just nothing too special, its weirdly produced and the vocals are kinda annoying as well, theres not really any choruses on here either, all the tracks sound exactly the same, and all around just not too special, however this album can be good at times, there was a track or two that i thought was catchy and well-produced with somewhat decent vocals. but the majority of the album just ranges from mid-mid-mid-mid, its just ... read more

Hey, Liberal Snowflakes: Stay clear of Helado. I would hate for you to hear his surname. Beautiful soundscapes on PHASOR, by the way, Mr. Negro.

This is nice, but admittedly, I was hoping for Helado Negro to move away from the comfort of warm synths, bleep-bloops, 4-4 pillow-soft dance beats, and whispery vocals.

However, this is an album full of warm synths, bleep-bloops, 4-4 pillow-soft dance beats, and whispery vocals.

It's nice, and maybe I'll like it more on a road trip in the future, but for now, it's just another nice HN album.

Helado Negro's PHASOR is just a pleasant experience from front to back.

never heard of him...that's all. I don't really have much to say...but this album is great!

First of all, the production is really beautiful. For some reason, whenever I look at the album cover, I'm just like "yeah...that makes sense". It's weird how much the album cover matches the production and the overall feel of the songs on here. Everything is calming and relaxing pretty much everywhere in this album. No ... read more

The more I listen, the more this grows on me. The laid back and ephemeral vibe subtly sucks you right in.
