  • Tijuana Raceway CAPIROTADA EDITION Lathe Cut
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Capirotada is a Mexican bread pudding that Paco craves while recording. Nuts, bananas, cheese, sprinkles, religious symbolism - capirotada has it all. And so does the Tijuana Raceway Capirotada Edition. You'll get:

    The limited 7", clear, square lathe cut (twenty-five made). Features Tijuana Raceway, a never-ending bonus track exclusive to the lathe and unique to each individual lathe, and zoetrope-style label by Jonathan Rigattieri. You also get the download code for Tijuana Raceway and digital-only b-side Luzysol.

    Note: Lathes, being handmade in real time, each take on their own character. They are quieter and lower-fi than pressed vinyl records - just turn your system up. That said, this one sounds great. Audiophiles, you also get the digital download with your purchase. Lathes might not play on some really cheap turntables.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Tijuana Raceway via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Tijuana Raceway LUZYSOL EDITION* lathe cut + delivery by Paco in Lucy the Pink 90 Civic
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    *Los Angeles residents only!

    Paco Casanova might not be the only person known for driving a pink car around Los Angeles, but he's the only one with a Magma sticker on the side window and a Nintendo controller glued to the dashboard. His autobahn is the 101. And his Rainbow Road, whatever surface street his unmissable 1990 Honda Civic named Lucy happens to be cruising.

    The LUZYSOL EDITION comes with everything in the Capirotada Edition but Paco Casanova will drive Lucy to you and (safely and social-distantly) hand deliver your lathe! We will contact you after purchase to arrange drop off. If you don't respond, we'll have to ship it. Thank you!

Luzysol 03:54


Paco has always seemed like a contrarian. He rejects idiomatic music outright with Saxophonist Patrick Shiroishi in Nakata; rocks in opposition to nearly everything with Zeuhl torchbearers Corima; and layers unhinged effects for art-punks Prettiest Eyes, who don't even have a guitarist for chrissakes. Yet here he is, carving a vibrant landscape over 4/4 beats. It's not that he's rejected his most unconventional sensibilities – there are avant nods tucked into these tracks – it's that he's letting us see beyond them. This is the kosmische video game soundtrack that maps the inside of Paco's head. It seems a musical life spent inside outre eventually turn itself outside in.

“Tijuana Raceway” is a distillation of this solo direction. It gets the single treatment here. And physical: Uba Tuba presents it as a single-sided 7" lathe (with lathe-exclusive infinity loop). Digital b-side “Luzysol” will delight and point the way to what you might expect from future Paco Casanova music: cosmic circuitry, my friends, inner-world navigation systems.

Take a trip with him, won't you?
