Our comrade Felix Ruiz from Discoteca Oceano has written us a post with some excellent new wave of Spanish balladry, it’s super-sweet stuff you should thank him for in the mail-box below. Felix is looking for that special someone who will design the new logo for Discoteca Oceano, so if you think that would be you or one of your friends, get in touch with him here.
Extraperlo make couples dance. Every time the sun sets you hear the lullabies. You listen to them and you believe they don’t want to wake you up. They regret to awake you. They kill you and make you lose the beat with their rhythm.
You listen to them in the lift to another dimension. The dimension where wedding bells toll so the bride can understand she is getting married this year. All in white, radiant like ever.
‘Desayuno Continental’ is their debut after many cocktails in Negroni’s at Barcelona. The palm trees of love will hide their bathing suits while they await for new orders. ‘Cavalcade’ is the song that the ghosts sing to you between the plants of Ciutadella. Tell your friend Wornie (if you know someone by that name) and spend the night up in the mountain listening to them. Sun rays come through the window.
Joe Crepusculo isn’t one for engagements, but he’s in love with you. Make him see things differently. Meet him secretly because you’ll listen to Gabriela and you will love her like a sister, she will sort out your problems. She wants to be yours and reply in kind. Perhaps because you are the first to love her. Without you she fills despondent. She wants to be yours and reply in kind.
Joël Iriarte has released two albums in two years, and what two records. ‘Escuela de Zebras’ was a presage and ‘Supercrepus’ the culmination. Spanish songs, let’s dance this techno. First, ‘Escuela de Zebras’.
And then ‘Supercrepus’.
The memory of these nights forever fresh will take you to the splendorous song of a summer song. The best song in your life. Like a ray that comes through. Let’s dance this techno.
