Let's listen to: Lavandera - Hacia El Mar EP 7"/cdep!

Lavandera - Hacia El Mar EP 7"/cdep

Here we have the newest release on the Discos de Kirlian label of Barcelona, which is a gorgeous slice of indiepop, Spanish style. Musically, they remind me quite a bit of later Beat Happening, but not so, you know, amateur-sounding. It's more in their sense of melody - simple but very effective - than anything else. Additionally, I can hear quite a bit of Heavenly, particularly in the jangly guitar style. And the vocals (both his and hers), and the way they interplay are just wonderful. Each of their songs (five on the 7" with an extra track on the cd/download) are in the 2-3 minute range, and are a pure delight! 

You can have a listen and pick up this gem here! As usual, the vinyl is limited to only 100 copies, so be quick!
