Rio en Medio's Frontier, originally released on a small scale in Oct 2008, is finally getting a nation-wide release thanks to the fine folks at the Manimal Vinyl label. You may remember Danielle Stech-Homsy's delicate, haunting voice from their 2006 release The Bride of Dynamite. But for those of you new to Rio en Medio, you are in for a beautiful surprise. All 11 tracks on Frontier skillfully meld electronic and organic sound, balancing delicate vocal harmonies on oscillating synth riffs and driving dance beats offset with gamelan-like percussion. Download the free MP3 for "Fall Up" and be certain to watch the great video for "The Umbrella." Frontier is due out July 14th.
