• Roberto Carlos Lange

In this week’s paper I have a Reader Recommends for Helado Negro, one of several projects from New Yorker Roberto Carlos Lange; he plays at the Hideout on Saturday with Maria Minerva and on Sunday he’s at Brilliant Corners of Popular Amusements opening for Bobby Womack. As I mention in my preview, Lange keeps busy with many disparate music efforts, and two of them have released work just as gripping and colorful as Helado Negro this year. In June the German label Pingipung released a new album by his duo with drummer Matt Crum called ROM, while Asthmatic Kitty just released the debut from a duo project with the ethereal singer Julianna Barwick called Ombre.
