about

Spell 336 was Paul Lopez and Martin Huerta.

I hope you enjoy these sounds. The audio quality on these tracks are taken from first generation cassette and DAT tapes. I have the original reel to reel masters but the tapes probably need to be baked. As time goes on and when I am able to I will transfer the original Ampex master tapes and upload them here.

The first four tracks were recorded in the studio in 1992 with the remaining six tracks recorded in 1991. The remaining six tracks were demos that were also recorded in a studio in preparation for the rest of the Spell 336 sessions that were held in 1992 but due to time and budget restraints the songs remained in my tape vault. These tracks have came out in various forms over the years with the sound being sub-par... Until now.

Original review of the Spell 336/2008 release:

Partaking in the Shoegazing revival, Spell 336 weave a laid back groove made up of both acoustic and chorus-drenched strummings along with dreamy vocals. The debut album from Spell 336 is surely to become a modern shoe-gaze classic. Spell 336' essentially the same name as the band, is a somewhat dreamy/shoe-gaze sound. Their cut pop style is dressed in melodic guitars and Morrissey-esque vocals, but you won't find any constantly shifting time signatures, or any other "musical feats but this music is impressive. For me the tracks have an interesting atmosphere that surrounds the sound and the vocals have a haunting mysterioso to accompany. This is pop music for the fall, for rainy days, for cloudy skies...In general this is music to make you relax.
