LEDASWAN / Press

“She’s tiny, but opener “Where Birds Go” takes no time proving her voice is huge, and confident enough to repackage guitarists David and Jaime Monzon’s Bloody Valentines and pull the audience’s gaze from its shoes.”

“So…my final ruling on Ledaswan? I like ‘em. Not a little, but a lot. Go to iTunes. Get NUMB3R5. Learn it. Live it. Love it.”

“‘What a Way Two Drown’ is a sultry, melodic malay that showcases luscious layers of sound. The dynamics of this song are stellar as are Erica’s vocals. Just as she, they are simply lovely.”

“With two EPs under their belt, the group’s third self-produced — and most ambitious — recording will be released on January 21.”

“Judging by three advance tracks we were able to hear, NUM83R5, to be released with a party at Nightrocker Live, is Ledaswan’s best-sounding album so far. “Faulkner,” the first single, is a guitar/drum/bass attack that sounds cleaner and louder than previous recordings; this ain’t a demo-sounding local band. But you should’ve seen singer Erica Monzon’s eyes when she told me how the band decided on an EP instead of a full-fledged album. The conversation took place on a freezing night on the North Saint Mary’s strip. “I actually had my heart set with NUM83R5 being a full-length, but … ” She stopped talking and looked at hubby/guitarist Jaime, and I don’t want to speculate, but it was a playful I-told-you-we-should-have-released-the-full-damn-thing-you-jerk look. “The music industry has changed a lot,” said Jaime. “Do we really want to put out a full album and then wait for a couple of years because that’s what everybody else has always done? ”

“She’s tiny, but opener “Where Birds Go” takes no time proving her voice is huge, and confident enough to repackage guitarists David and (former Current staffer) Jaime Monzon’s Bloody Valentines and pull the audience’s gaze from its shoes”

“Ledaswan pulls you in with Erica's voice, but underneath the sweetness is a darker edge, with pensive lyrics and a complex framework”

“Gutierrez’ voice is often mesmerizing and occasionally sugary sweet”
