The son of legendary psychedelic filmmaker
Alejandro Jodorowsky (Holy Mountain, Santa
Sangre), Adan Jodorowsky is a polyglot who sings
in Spanish, French, and English. As a child, James
Brown taught him how to dance and George
Harrison, who was friends with his parents, gave him
his first guitar lessons. Amador is his US debut, and
as the name would imply the songs are romantic,
dark, and obsessed with love ( amador is Spanish
for lover ). Running the gamut from seductive
cosmic folk to funky cabaret, Amador includes a
collaboration with Devendra Banhart and a handful
of songs with lyrics contributed by father Alejandro.
Splits his time between Mexico City, Los Angeles,
Paris, and anywhere the tour for his melancholy new
album, Amador, takes him. Catch him if you can. --New York Times magazine
His playing is Randy Newman-esque, with whimsy
and a slight Western twang, only the lyrics are
whispered in Spanish at Leonard Cohen depths.
Sometimes the songs venture into creepy, sultry, and
carnivalesque, with some burlesque instrumentation,
like a muffled trumpet. It doesn t make you happy
per se, but it captures your mood so well that you
fall in love all over again. --MTV Iggy
