iTunes Review

Venezuelan producer Arca typically makes compelling, lyrical music without saying a word, twisting digital dissonance and gorgeously rendered synth tones into songs you could practically hang on the walls of the Guggenheim. But on his self-titled third album, words become the focus. While an abrasive, intricately programmed instrumental like "Castration" says a fair bit on its own, "Anoche" and "Piel" reach a spellbinding new level for Arca, as he sings Spanish-language poetry about shedding identities and the messiness of love over truly haunting textures.

I beg of thee: attempt to cherish him, for by sharing a species with him places thee several millenia ahead of your deserved slot in human evolution.
