The Zephyr Bones
Secret Place

The Zephyr Bones are a part-Chilean, part-Catalonian band who make blurry psych rock and dream pop that they have labelled ‘beach wave’. Now based in Barcelona, the birthplace of the band’s rhythm section, they have set up their own recording studio there. This all lends itself to the debut album, Secret Place,...view item »

The Van Pelt
Sultans Of Sentiment

Here we have a really great collection of highly atmospheric, slightly emo and poetic tunes. The Van Pelt are fronted by the talented Chris Leo (brother of Ted Leo of the Pharmycists). I dug their previous albums so much that I had to hear more and soon discovered Chris released albums under the names 'The Lapse" and "The Vague Angels". They pla...view item »

The Van Pelt
Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves

As heroes of NYC's indie-rock scene in the 90's, The Van Pelt only thrived in the world's concrete jungle for four years; but their lasting impression still burns away. Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves was their thwack of a debut, and here it is repressed from original recording for th...view item »

Me and the Bees
Menos Mal

Me and the Bees are a Spanish indie pop band with the enviable power to summon up sheer joyous vibes with every one of its quick little two minute tracks.

Isasa
Los días

In a world of so much music, it remains a treat to find a record carried on instrumental ability alone. Isasa is a wonderful player who moves between electric, acoustic and lap steel guitars on Los dias. This is a plaintive record, and it places itself in the lineage of Spanish guitar music not just in style but in name...view item »

Eyes All Over Town / Do You Wanna Walk Around In The Dark?

John Reis of Rocket From The Crypt (among other bands) and label head at Swami Records brought Mrs. Magician to the attention of the world when his label released their first album of ‘60s pop, garagey surf guitar played with a punk sensibility. With the permission of Swami, the La Castany...view item »

Aries
Adieu or Die

Aries is the solo project of Isabel Fernández Reviriego, who is responsible for every little detail of these rich productions. Her Spanish-language vocals, harmoniously multi-tracked, fly around the centre of the mix, surrounded by stacks of shiny sound. Adieu Or Die has that sugar-rush effect of...view item »

Beach Beach
The Sea

So good they named themselves twice, Spanish four-piece Beach Beach are as jangly and sun-soaked as their title suggests. Relocating from Mallorca to Barcelona, they’ve crafted a fine collection of radio-friendlies infused with West Coast melodies and unrelenting happiness. Surf's up. Out on CD & vinyl LP from La Casta...view item »
