The US lofi-rock project Zapatero released the EP Garden Variety on the 20th.
An eclectic mix of songs are included on the five track EP (available on bandcamp). Sometimes verging on the experimental else playing in the middle of the dance-floor, yet there is a warm fuzziness to the sounds which brings them to life in the ears of the listener as the escapist nature of the material wends its way through the room.
The audience gets the sense that Zapatero is a musician who creates music simply for the joy of making music to get away from the mundanities of life, which gives the songs their honesty and vitality making them such a delight to hear.
My selection is the middle track Johnny’s Secret Army.
