Roberto Carlos Lange, born to Ecuadorian immigrants in Florida and based in Brooklyn, he has been signing his music with the alias Helado Negro for a decade now. Sometimes he sings it in Spanish and at others in English. He calls it “psychedelic meneíto”. Most of it, since he debuted with Awe Owe in 2009, has been released on Sufjan Steven’s label, another musician who has a special ability to make us evoke things that in fact have never happened to us. Next time we will talk about the things that will never happen: like the release of any records better than This is How You Smile this year.
