Collaborators
A Love Electric performs regularly with luminaries of the New York downtown scene John Medeski, Cyro Baptista, Billy Martin, a number of Mexico’s most daring independent artists from free jazz legend German Bringas to emerging hip hop acts, and alongside communities throughout Mexico, most notably working Brin regularly with young musicians from the Oaxacan Sierra, the pocket brass band “Tlayuda”.

“Explosive” – The Prague Post

“Fascinating” – NPR

Post-genre
A Love Electric has resisted conforming to any established genre identified market, a trend that continues with band’s 2020 release, “Permanent Immigrant”. After performances at some of the world’s most acclaimed jazz festivals in 2016 and 2017 – from Winter Jazz in New York City to jazz festivals throughout Latin America – the band that taken a decidedly more rock and song oriented approach on following releases, perhaps equal parts self-sabotage and preservation. With A Love Electric is about the dedication to exploring the creative act. Risk, commitment to the music, and a powerful dynamic between the three band members that can on that can only be developed through years of collaboration on stage and off, give A Love Electric’s performances a dynamism that has allowed the band to create its own touring circuit outside of established markets, returning year after year to countries throughout Europe, cities in Mexico, and in 2019 for the groups’s second China run. The group is led by guitarist and vocalist Todd Clouser, a Minnesota native now based in Mexico City, where he releases music in a prolific manner, runs Ropeadope Sur Records, the non-profit Music Mission, and is co-editor of the books “Musicians in Mexico City Vol. 1 and 2”.

Permanent Immigrant
For 2020, A Love Electric offers “Permanent Immigrant”, a full length recording that is set to reveal itself throughout the fall, with the first offering being “This isTime”, a wildly ambitious rock offering that recalls Captain Beefhea Captain Beefheart to Zappa to the instrumental heroics of King Crimson, in a less polished sound than the group’s two most recent recordings. Clouser’s lyrical offerings have always tilted towards poetry and denser concepts than popular music, and that commitment to his craft continues with the new recording.
The group’s drummer and producer, Hernan Hecht, is a Latin Grammy Winner.
