    Conversations w/ Aliens, Automatons, Paper Kings, and Plastic Dreams: Nursery Rhymes For The Unfettered Mind Vol. 2 is Ricardo Iamuuri’s second album. Before a sound is born Iamuuri greets each potential listener with his signature word puzzles. It’s difficult to know for certain if Iamuuri’s titles are for decoration or distraction. What does seem obvious is his playful hyperawareness regarding the weight of language, symbols, mythology, space, color and form. Unlike the naked tone of Vol. 1, (Nursery Rhymes For The Underfed Minds) Vol. 2 is overdressed. But it is excess that's being explored in this album, as well as it's limits. Ricardo Iamuuri carves out his own genre with Vol. 2. What he labels as "urban folk-hop, electro-blues, afro-rock” becomes label-less as each track reveals its structure and content. At times sensitive and rhythmic. At times simple and mantric. At times meandering in isolation. Ricardo Iamuuri has produced a follow up album that is more than just music to listen to. Nursery Rhymes For The UNFETTERED Minds: Vol. 2 is invitational and intentional, designed to provide a multitude of experiences. ... more

Track Name: Glitter Slum
When my sun goes down
And my moon comes up
Along with my double life
And this Glitter Slum

In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum
Glitter Slum

When my moon goes down
And my sun comes up
Along with this cartoon news
All wrapped in bubble gum

In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum
Glitter Slum

When my sun is high
And my shadows long
Along with these truths, these lies
An unholy war has begun
An unholy war has begun

I said
First came the dream
Then came the plan
Cut down the trees
Wash over the land

Glitter Slum
Glitter Slum

"If all the books were burned
And we spoke one tongue
Will we ever learn
How to become one
In this Glitter Slum?"

In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum

All the lies
Watch them shine
Watch them shine

In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum
In this Glitter Slum
