Helado Negro - This Is How You Smile - New Vinyl Lp 2019 RVNG INTL Pressing - Indie Pop / Electronica


Street Date: 3/8/19

Helado Negro returns with This Is How You Smile, an album that freely flickers between clarity and obscurity, past and present geographies, bright and unhurried seasons. Miami-born, New York-based artist Roberto Carlos Lange embraces a personal and universal exploration of aura - seen, felt, emitted - on his sixth album and second for RVNG Intl. This Is How You Smile derives from Jamaica Kincaid's "Girl," a story she wrote in the form of a mother’s sole, complicated, but loving voice, speaking a "How to" litany of advice ranging from domestic chores to what a daughter, an immigrant and young woman of color, must do to protect herself in a world that was not designed by or for her. This is how joy, or its visage, at turns comforts, constricts, or becomes armor.
