Pantayo – Ang Pagdaloy [Streaming]

Today the Toronto band Pantayo dropped their anticipated second album Ang Pagdaloy via Telephone Explosion.
An hypnotic album filled with the wonderful sounds of the percussions of the traditional kulintang instruments and some moody R&B, Pop and Rock music.
An album you didn’t know was recorded in Toronto!

About the album by Pantayo:
What tools can we call upon to access the parts of our experience that the human voice can’t fully articulate?
What previously unknown revelations bubble to the surface when the separation between human, machinic, and organic textures collapse?

The spellbinding Toronto-based outfit Pantayo (Eirene Cloma, Michelle Cruz, Joanna Delos Reyes, Kat Estacio, and Katrina Estacio) find a satisfying resolution by reinventing their relationship to the traditional kulintang ensemble instruments, indigenous to the islands known as Mindanao, that provide the foundation for their unmistakable and unyielding sound.

On their sophomore record Ang Pagdaloy, the Polaris-shortlisted group give themselves permission to dive into an appreciation for the music they discovered growing up —searing, minimal R&B; heaving drone metal; airy 90s guitar-driven rock, and gauzy, alt-country balladry.
In the process, they build into their sonic landscape a constellation of somatic and aural influences, like the low-belly simmer of an unresolved crush or the metallic cacophony of the carts from early morning bottle collectors in Manila.

At its core, Ang Pagdaloy is an intricately constructed collage that rejects narrow definitions, and instead, mirrors the properties of water — taking inspiration from its shape-shifting elements, devotion to organic paths of least resistance, and desire to to let go and flow.
