El Fum Blanc by Bedroom (February 7, 2011)
Bedroom is a completely sentimental band. With soothing acoustic sound the album unwinds itself cinematically. Unfortunately, because I don’t speak Catalan and I don’t trust google translator when it comes to poetics, I’ll never know what they are saying. I dare you to fault me for assuming its deep. It sounds deep…
‘Due Minuts Al Far’ by Senyor Cordills (July 3, 2011)
A mellow single from a soft spoken Catalan singing artist, ‘Due Minuts Al Far’ reminds me of a much more stoned and somber Belle and Sebastian. Google translate gives a vague idea of what he’s singing, but I’m sure it doesn’t do the song justice. Whether you can understand it or not, it’s inarguable how wonderful this track treats the ears.
