Since the turn of the decade, Lorena Quintanilla has made a name for herself as one half (guitarist/vocalist) of Guadalajara, Mexico’s Lorelle Meets The Obsolete, an incredible psych and shoegaze band with a reputation for exceptional live shows and a catalog of equally impressive albums to match. Since 2017 Quintanilla has also been focusing on her solo project, J. Zunz. After the hypnotic debut album “Silente”, released via Monofonus Press, the new album “Hibiscus” (released by Rocket Recordings, and on ltd tape by Commando Vanessa) is the result of metamorphic process whereby the minimal is rendered maximal and the personal fused with the political.
“It is hard to describe any record as they keep unfolding to me in time” says Lorena.
The initial vision for the J. Zunz was for Lorena to strip herapproach down to the basics – “I remember I was reading a biography of John Cage and that book detonated something in me. The author was referring to the influence of Buddhism and meditation, and modern artists like Sonia Delaunay, Lucio Fontana, Julio Le Parc, futurism. I was very charged with ideas.”
