Drawing on the American primitivists like John Fahey, as well as the guitar music tradition of his native Spain, Isasa has created the quieltely introspective Insilio. Where much classical guitar music is complicated and knotty, Isasa is not afraid to let notes sing out and breathe, creating his own distinct type of minimalism.

Los días

In a world of so much music, it remains a treat to find a record carried on instrumental ability alone. Isasa is a wonderful player who moves between electric, acoustic and lap steel guitars on Los dias. This is a plaintive record, and it places itself in the lineage of Spanish guitar music not just in style but in name. Two tracks reference streets in Madrid; opener ‘Aina’ takes its name from a 90s Catalan D.I.Y. group; and ‘La bien pagá’ is an arrangement of a popular Spanish folk song. Comes as either a CD or a vinyl and both have a lovely cover.
