Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano will release his debut LP, Jardín, on January 27th via Stones Throw Records. Today, he drops another preview track from the album – “Crawl” is available now. In anticipation of release, fans can pre-order the album via the Stones Throw online store & all digital retailers. Speaking about the new track, Gabriel comments:
“Crawl is about making love to someone you find irresistible. It’s about honoring their beauty, and appreciating what they do for you and doing it back. Babies making babies. Bouncy. This tune happened very quickly. My musical brother David Frazier Jr. plays drums on this. The rest is me.”
On Jardín, Garzón-Montano sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the many-layered game that is America today, from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first-generation hustle to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one’s own mind. He previously revealed “Sour Mango” and “The Game,” displaying how his formidable skills have come to fruition since the release of his widely acclaimed 2014 debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila.
A capable multi-instrumentalist, Gabriel tracked drums, bass, guitar, piano, and synthesizers direct to 2″ tape, adding percussion, digital programming, and several layers of his own vocals to create a lush sonic environment alongside analog guru Henry Hirsch. Exhibiting a compositional craftsmanship, Jardín confirms Garzón-Montano’s innate pop sensibilities and his indisputable knack for fusing a wide range of classic influences and cutting-edge ideas to create a sound all his own.
Gabriel will play an NYC release show on January 26th, followed by a UK/EU winter tour. Stay tuned as additional dates are announced!
