Xenofox is the duo of Olaf Rupp on electric guitar and Rudi Fischerlehner on drums and percussion.
Macondo is a fictional town in the novels of Gabriel García Márquez, and a real commune in Angola. It is also the name of an oil field close to the gulf of mexico, an accident there led to the devastating black tide in 2010. A refugee camp in Vienna carries the name as well.
"Beyond Xenofox’s facility to create such gloomy soundscapes, there's also a tactility to their music - the scraped guitar strings and vigorously stabbed chords, these ghostly amplifier hums - that has a cinematic quality." [Martin Schray, freejazzblog]
