‘Prefiero El Naranja’ is Suso Saiz’s first solo LP he released while still a member of Orquesta De Las Nubes trio with singer Maria Villa and percussionist Pedro Estevan (see Tianguis Musical blog for a 1988 LP). Born 1957, Saiz studied with Spanish avantgarde composer Luis De Pablo during the 1970s, before turning to more ambient projects like the Orquestra, whose ethnic-ambient music is similar to that of Jorge Reyes (1952-2009), for instance. ‘Prefiero El Naranja’ (I Prefer The Orange) is a collection of ambient guitar vignettes with lush, beautiful guitar sounds and effects, part-krautrock, part-The Durutti Column, say. Dreamy melodies are kept entertaining thanks to a high level of sound crafting and rich guitar sounds. A few synth loops also appear here and there for appropriate mid-1980s mood. The simplicity of these melodies grows on you after a while, like with other tenants of the ‘naive school’ (Klimperei, Harald Ziegler, Roedelius). See the Rock Progresivo Español blog for a Suso Saiz CD.
