^L_ is that class of artists who do not stitch without a thread, who know what they are doing at all times and leave nothing to the whim of chance, although sometimes their decisions may seem unusual or out of place. And if, in addition, after a consecration in the underground, we see him doing his thing with Manifest, it leaves us even more surprised.

With Manifest he manages to provide introspection, absorbing energy and twilight light, and they close a record that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice. The more the record is listened to, the more difficult it is to locate it in a specific geographical location.

The songs that are recorded on this album show the particular way of understanding the sound of ^L_ , located at the opposite end of what is commercial, what works, what works: what it does is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and glows, of melodic lines and blurred textures, pursuing a serene, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which they drew dialogue on this record, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.

Manifest can and should be listened to as a portion of timeless music, which transmits a positive idea in times of conflict, and its aesthetic appeals to the most basic, deep and receptive of the spirit. ^L_, in short, designs a wide and fragile sound to listen and feel from the depths.
