In trying to branch out with our list coverage this year, I reached out to Gonzalo Marcos; he runs Bobo Integral out of Madrid, Spain. The label released some really great music this year from the likes of Lachlan Denton, Blue Jeans and the P4K approved, Ducks Unlimited. He also plays in the incredible El Palacio de Linares, who released Largos Agotadores this year as well. So, I asked him if he could do a top list of what’s coming out of Spain, and he responded with the following list.
Be sure to check out his label HERE, and his band HERE.
All I need to make the Kevin Morby triumvirate of greatness complete is a new Babies record. He’s already had a good year with a new 7″ this year and an album with his other act Woods; today he announced yet another album under his own name, featuring this great new track. It’s a relaxed tune filled with light touches of piano and horns, again illustrating his growth as an incredible writer. This new collection of songs is titled Still Life, as an homage to a art piece by Maynard Monrow; you can get the new record from Woodsist on October 14th.
