"Somehow a minimal Catalan psych-folk album inspired by Brazilian counter-current musical giants fell in line with Mars Volta-leader Omar Rodiguez Lopez's prog-rock opus Old Money and Madlib's Beat Konducta 5 & 6; in mid 2009 Stones Throw released Savath and Savalas's La Llama. That album, an acoustic excursion, drenched in Eva Puyelo Mins' breathy vocals, marched to its own beat, courtesy of Prefuse 73 and Roberto Carlos Lange, aka 'Heldado Negro' -- defiantly cerebral, not made for dancing, no 'stand-out-single'. This follow up entry into the Savath and Savalas book, etched by a new production entity we only know as 'The Predicate' (we think they're the same cats known as 'The Predicate Production Guild', who recently released a library album on Andy Votel's B-Music label) fits perfectly in Stones Throw's ever expanding musical novel. Who woulda thunk it, 'Catalan-folk-psych with minimalistelectronic- sensibilities' re-imagined as an excursion in neo-dub? Not us, but The Predicate (Dub Version) helps us through winter with just enough bounce to remind us of the warm days past and soon to come again."
