Originally a drummer, Andres Lõo is a singer, one-man-band songwriter, who does shows with his exclusive wave-edit based music, prototypically rhythm-focused and spiced up with heart ache vocals for cherries on the cake. Andres Lõo has been warming up for bands like Black Dice and Mouse on Mars. His debut "Skeletons on Rock" features special effect-edits by the Austrian sound artist Franz Pomassl. Also, there are some electrofunk tendencies in his collaborations with the Sextags' Stefan Mitterer. Lõo has written original score for Estonian feature films and will be writing a musical for Teatro Praga (at Teatro Sao Luiz, Lisbon) alongside Kevin Blechdom. Today he concentrates on musical short stories, lending its sonic edge from the experimental, but don't let it deceive you... It is music, it's rock'n'roll, it's melodic and a tease for music lovers of many kinds. These musical pieces are petrified dreams, contemporary fairytales, poppy, but extremist sounding powertunes on tricky riddims, hand crafted in a simple wave editing program. Andres Lõo's debut "Skeletons on Rock" under Laton (Austria) will be out in February 27th, 2009. The track "Introvert Dancer" from "SoR" will be included on The Wire's "Tapper 21" compilation. Andres Lõo is currently working on his second solo album "Déjàvoodoo".

 

 

 

Andres Lõo alustas koos Mihkel Kleisiga post-rocki bändis Luarvik Luarvik. Märksõnadeks Lõo muusikas on wave editing ja prototüübid popis. Hoogsatel rütmilistel põhjadel kõlavad jõulised vokaalid, süntesaatorid ja trummid. Andres Lõo muusika on eelkõige muusikaline seiklus. Avangardne element seguneb popiga ning kõrge energialaksu saavad nii rokifanaatikud, hiphopparid, avant-popparid, kui elektrošikkarid. 27. veebruaril ilmub Lõol tuntud Austria plaadifirma Laton all debüütalbum "Skeletons on Rock", mille materjalidega on trummar Lõo juba viimased kolm aastat erinevate Euroopa linnade lavadel esinenud. Filmimuusika kirjutamise kõrval ("Taarka", "Rambikramp"), on tema järgmiseks muusikaliseks avantüüriks muusikali kirjutamine Lissaboni teatrikompaniile Teatro Praga koos ameerika kunstpoppari, Kevin Blechdomiga. Andres Lõo on soojendanud bände selliseid nagu Black Dice ja Mouse on Mars. Lisaks pikaajalisele koostööle Sextags'i Stefan Mittereriga, on mõnes "Skeletons on Rocki" loos kuulda ka Austria elektroonika-veterani Franz Pomassli kätt. Esinemine Tallinn Music Week’i showcase'il on ühtlasi Andres Lõo "Skeletons on Rocki" esitluskontsert Eestis.
