Standstill - Sr.Chinarro

Here we go today with 2 veterans, maybe you don’t know about them, but spanish bands are doing great music and spanish people are not aware of that.
ها نحن نجتمع اليوم مع اثنين من المحاربين ، ربما انك لا تعرف الكثير عنهم ، لكن الاسبانيه هي فرق عمل موسيقي كبير والشعب الأسباني لا يدركون ذلك.

So this is a rebuke to me and to YOU as well. We do have to take care of Spanish bands.

STANDSTILL “Vivalaguerra”
They are from Cataluña, they are playing music since 10 years ago, doing great things, with some changes in their stile but what I have discovered with their last album I like. They have arrived in Spanish lyrics, doing a good job, good construction “Romper un silencio así no tiene perdón”…
::: standstill :::
But besides of languages, lyrics, colours, sounds, trends, …this people is looking forward, to the future, and I hope we can follow after this discovering.

By the way they are playing live next 8th Feb 07 in El Sol – Madrid.

SR. CHINARRO "El Mundo Según"

We become accustomed bad with Antonio Luque. Does not matter where he releases an album he does a good job. He amazes us each time he gives us a new album.
I don’t know how to explain it, his last 2 albums look, at the beginning, simple pop songs, nothing else. But that’s quite enough, to get a bunch of good pop songs, but he gets to say always something, to transmit always something to you.
Pop songs with almost perfect chorus, surrealist lyrics and accessible alternative music, without loosing his identity. In this last album goes deep in his Andalusia (he is from Sevilla) roots or he explores new nuances to decorate some songs.

Next gig in Madrid 17th Feb 07 (Galileo)
This sample is not from this album, but at least you can see and listening to something.
