The Spanish triphop duo from Spain, Voluptas Mors, released the LP Intelligence on the 13th.
In similar vein to their last LP Innocence, in Intelligence (available on bandcamp) switches around vocals, though with more of Laura singing than Ramon and with the compositions being of deeper resonance and complexity it provides the overall feel an album of sultry allure, with the audience finding themselves slinking their torso with the undulating beats.
Earlier in the month Los Labios released the LP Birthday.
By way of an introduction to a band who most certainly know one end of a song from the other and how to fill the space in-between with highly impressive rock and roll, resultingly are gaining a strong international following, the title track and fifth of the ten on the album.
The first of the six tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) – Hanging Out With Imogen – can’t help but bring some lightness to the day as the retro combinations of synth and guitar generate a warming ambience to the room.
The Spain based French and Argentinian alt-folk duo Le Garçon Rêvé released the LP Eat Your Make Up earlier in the month.
Le Garçon Rêvé
A roughly thirty seven minutes, nine track album, which quietly and confidently steps from the speakers as Le Garçon Rêvé deliver a soundtrack steeped in adroitly handled acoustic guitar.
My selection from Eat Your Make Up (available on bandcamp) is the fifth number, Pensées Étranglées, which features a viola allowing the duo to add considerable texture to the piece whilst equally containing the most prepossessing vocal performance on the release.
