Biography

Languis are an Argentinian electronic/dream-pop/post-rock duo comprised of Marcos Chloca and Alejandro Cohen now based in Los Angeles. The first Languis LP, self-titled (a 9-track instrumental CD), was released in August 1998 and was recorded on a four-track recorder at Languis’ studio. Some of the innovative techniques used in the recording of the album include the use of both analog and digital synthesizers, organs, guitars, and samplers. Last Frequency Presets was released in the spring of 1999. It was also recorded in their home studio, and composed using both analog and digital synthesizers, guitars, and vocals. Soft Music was released in February 2000 on 7”. It contains three instrumental songs that are closely related to sound collage material.

Unithematic, released in November 2000, explores the more melodic pop side of Languis, utilizing more vocals, acoustic guitars, and pianos than before. In contrast with previous releases, these songs are structured and produced with a different purpose. They are treated and understood as conventional songs with a beginning, middle, and an end. Unithematic combines elements from their past releases - the warm melodic synth sounds of Simball Sounds, the precision and complexity of Last Frequency Presets, and the sound collage feel from Soft Music. These elements, combined with gentle but deliberate lyrics, make Unithematic a subtle divergence into a pop based/post-rock song writing world.

    wow, just discovered they released a new "rock" album last year and holy crap it's awesome as hell. not quite as dreamy as The Four Walls with just a bit more pop structures. man I wish they would just stick to dream pop/electronic rock stuff.

    Languis的音乐就像隐藏在一块朔大有色胶片的背后被 放大上色后渲染出来的一种独特的精神.
