Artist Spotlight: Marinero

San Francisco based Marinero is a solo project dreamt up by Bay Area artist, Jess Sylvester.

Marinero’s music is simmering of lo-fi indie infused with some subtle hints of Latin roots music. In short, it’s a catatonic mixture of long hot sweaty days, and cool candlelit nights.

Marinero is an eclectic madman of many sounds and has taken part in groups that delve into a spectrum of genres ranging from punk to sampledelia.

Francisco Y Madero (the precursor to Marinero) was the start of the evolution of Marinero’s cholo-fi signature style of taking samples of Latin roots music and mixing in some of his very own cosmic pop flavors rooted in bossa nova and Tropicália.

Marinero’s new album is out now and is streaming everywhere. Check it out now on Spotify.
