Flavio Etcheto – “Superbrillantes”

Flavio Etcheto has released a new EP “Superbrillantes” on Casa Del Puente Discos. The Ep was released on October 12th, 2018. The physical release of the album will have the following tracklisting:

Tracklist

  1. Encontrarnos
  2. Sibilancias
  3. Súbito
  4. Superbrillantes
  5. Lejos de esto
  6. Meditera (Bonus Track CD/LP)
  7. Oleaje inmenso (Bonus Track CD/LP)
  8. Antes de aclarar (Bonus Track CD/LP)

The last 3 songs from that album are from his Triptico EP 7″ released late last year.

The EP has 5 amazing songs that are some of the best latin dream pop songs released in the last few years. Superbrillantes sounds like a companion piece to Bocanada and Colores Santos, both albums that Etcheto worked on with Gustavo Cerati and Daniel Melero (on the latter). For whatever reason the work that Flavio Etcheto does here feels like he’s weaving a connection to the era in those albums, even though those albums were almost 10 years apart. It does not feel nostalgic, and I applaud him for that. The EP just feels right.
The way the songs sound. The way the sounds feel. The feeling you get that you’re hearing something familiar yet in a new way or form. They feel connected and you feel connected to them.

For those fans that have been missing, or clamoring, for the sound that Cerati left behind years ago, here’s your opportunity to jump back in and enjoy some amazing work.
This would also help by showing your support to this independent artist that relies on fan support and word of mouth.

The fact that he plans on touring this album is quite exciting. He’s recruited Jupi Medvescig (Tantra) in guitar and Pedro Moscuzza (touring members of the Siempre es Hoy band from Cerati) on drums. He says he has plans to hopefully visit Mexico at some point to present this album, if this is the case then hopefully he can make the trek all the way to the Tijuana border.

R.E.M. at the BBC

R.E.M., one of our all time favorite bands/musicians/artists just released a box set of their live and in-studio performances at the BBC.
“R.E.M. grew up with the BBC, and this historic relationship is lovingly celebrated across an incredible collection that beautifully illustrates the career trajectory of one of modern music’s greatest bands. The collection—available as a super-deluxe edition 8-CD/1-DVD box set, as well as 2-CD, 2-LP and digital formats—comprises a treasure trove of rare and unreleased live and studio recordings culled from the BBC and band archives. This is a must-have collection for R.E.M. fans and an authoritative introduction for newcomers. In-studio performances featured in the 8-CD/1-DVD box set include a John Peel Session (1998), Drivetime and Mark and Lard appearances (2003) and a glorious Radio 1 Live Lounge performance (2008). Live broadcasts include a rough-and-tumble show from Nottingham’s Rock City (1984), the stunning 1995 Milton Keynes Monster Tour (their first after a six-year break), a blistering 1999 Glastonbury headline set and an invitation-only 2004 show at London’s St James’s Church.”

Lyrics
“Way you write”

Good looks never hurt no one
Yet they fail to
Turn me on

If you’d like a way with me
Then a way with words
Is the key

My, my
The way you write, write
Blows my mind, mind
Way you write

What a brilliant line
Can we spend the night?

Send me just a phrase or two
No one says things quite
Quite like you

I just cannot help but smile
Got me so intrigued
By your mind

My, my
The way you write, write
Blows my mind, mind
Way you write

What a brilliant line
Can we spend the night?

Grizzly Bear at the Observatory North Park

Grizzly Bear played what they said would be their last headlining show for the foreseeable future last night at the Observatory North Park in support of their latest album “Painted Ruins”.

The San Diego crowd came out to see the band perform, even though it wasn’t officially sold out it felt and it sounded like it was and they made their presence felt.

The band sounded as good, or better, than ever. There is not a single musician that outperforms the other. Their chemistry is cohesive. From Ed Droste pressence, vocals, keys and guitar into Chris Taylor bass, saxophone and samples / loops to Christopher Bear impeccable drumming, all held together by Daniel Rossen and his piano, guitar and voice (quite possibly one of the best around).

This was the setlist:

Four Cypresses / Losing All Senses / Cut-Out / Yet Again / Fine For Now / Ready, Able / Mourning Sound / Sleeping Ute / Two Weeks / Foreground / Aquarian / While You Wait For The Others / Three Rings.

ENCORE.

Souther Point / Sun In Your Eyes.

This band is where we typically set the bar and start the argument that this is where “dream pop” got perfected. This might well be the quintessential American pop band of the XXI century so far. And we’ll gladly wait for them to return.
