Tetchy is my middle name, as you well know and hats off to Kim from Super Cat PR who once again had to negotiate my red mist – but gladly we came to what I needed. As you will also be aware if you have been with the Indie Bands Blog stable for more than a couple of months I rarely have anything other than scant regard for PR firms and Super Cat PR is one of those very rare firms who try to meet both the band and the reviewers needs – so for a change I pass on a – do consider if you feel the need to use a PR firm – I digress – Letters To Fiesta…
An exploration of the subterranean comes to mind as the quartet lever open hidden oysters which echo around the helix and targus gathering intensity prior to swooping into the tympanic membrane where the mesmeric waves of sound coalesce before flowing through the cerebrum and in turn dissapating through the whole stystema nervosa and the audience is left wreathed in the glow that is Letters To Fiesta.
Influences from 18th century Chorale and electro ’80s resonate in delightful unison as the audience lays back in a never ending circle of exploration which can’t help but captivate the mind. Bach meets Human League by way of Iceland and the 21st Century meets Letters To Fiesta.
The readers on the UK, just knew I couldn’t leave the reference to the UKs Fiesta soft-porn magazine which has been around since 1966 with the ever present comment – the magazine for men which women love to read – and somehow the name of the band, makes some sense, though Letters To Fiesta is more ‘The band for the highbrow which the lowbrow love to listen to’ and I am happy to include myself in that latter category and not in anyway feel excluded.
A new six track release is set for release in late October – Aphorism – and having had the opportunity to take a listen, I recommend you get hold of it when it appears.
Here is the opening track – Tears Apart.
