Oldfolks Home (Silas Chipelski)
Oldfolks Home, AKA Ricardo Lopez-Aguilar, marries electro beats with a passion for emotional story telling, and the results are highly original.
His debut, We Are The Feeding Line, was released in 2008 and re-released last fall. Herohill.com calls it "a schizophrenic look at what happens when technology and tenderness meet in the middle and wrestle for top spot".
Lopez-Aguilar has moved in and out of Winnipeg, and in and out of making his particular brand of music.
Good news for fans -- he's back in the 'Peg and the OldFolks Home project is in full swing, with a second recording underway.
