Mon Laferte: Autopoiética [Universal Music Mexico]

Mon Laferte got the name of her new album, Autopoiética, from Chilean biologists Francisco Varela and Humberto Maturana, who coined the term for cells’ self-maintenance. “Our biologists are great thinkers, so I wanted the creation of this album to be born from this term,” she said in a statement. “I take this concept, and I take it to a metaphorical side. I take it as an insignia. I am autopoietic by nature. All beings can create and be reborn constantly.”

Patrick Shiroishi: I Was Too Young to Hear Silence [American Dreams]

Patrick Shiroishi, the Los Angeles–based Japanese American saxophonist and composer, is back with his latest solo album. I Was Too Young to Hear Silence was recorded in a single improvised session in a parking garage late at night with a saxophone, glockenspiel, two microphones, and a recorder. “The title kind of refers to when I was younger… I would fill all the space with as many notes and as loud of volume as I could,” Shiroishi said in a statement. “Not saying that there’s any wrong way to play, but for me, after a while, I was confused with what I was trying to say.”
