I get that the language barrier makes the average pop fan turn away from the non-Anglophiles, but you’re missing out if you haven’t jammed to Fantasmamidi; I absolutely to listen to their self titled LP (HERE) and tell me you don’t love it. None of that really matters at the moment, as I want to turn my attention towards the band’s latest single off the forthcoming Letargo. Not to jump to conclusions, but the word translates to lethargy, which seems to have a sonic impact on this single; it’s far slower than the previous fare, though equally as special. The guitar lines have these deep tones that are accented by these sparkling electronic notes. In the vocals you have this solemn delivery, sort of like looking back with fondness on the band’s early sound. Looks like the new LP will be handled by the great Discos de Kirlian.
It’s Tuesday, the day everyone forgot. But, why not hit it hard from the get-go with this spirited track from Spain’s Fantasmamidi. Immediately upon pressing play you’re going to find that your toes are tapping uncontrollably, and you might even leave your chair to flail about. Don’t let the Spanish lyrics deter you away, as the vocals still have a nice warm draw to them…even if you don’t speak the language. I really couldn’t think of a better way to start out your day than by listening to this track; their new self-titled album just became available via Discos de Kirlian.
