Soft vocals whisper against jolts of revving guitars, like a thug speaking low and deliberate commands to surrender or else. This is Le Recourder Larouge, the musical project of Rei Soto, which deals with the fringe emotions that frequently pose as love. Possessiveness. Greed. Lust. The passion of these pathos-laden emotions is enhanced with a mixture of hardrock pounding, industrial darkness, and dreamscape atmostpheres. A series of four EPs are planned, with two already released, titled simply “L” and “E.” Rei Soto spoke with Resonance about the creative process of a DIY musician, depressing prom music, and lyrical inspiration provided by horror films.
