Witterings from an old indie kid
Late last month I bemoaned the demise of the UK indiepop bands who placed fuzziness and shambling above all else. Yes, there are one or two exceptions but this year I have been getting my fix mainly from Spanish speaking countries across the globe and Chilean band La Casa De Emma are no exception to this rule.
This, their debut album is chock full of retro-sounding indie-pop tunes that will gladden the heart. Think Taluah Gosh, The Flatmates, 53rd & 3rd, The Shop Assistants, The Rosehips, Subway Organisation et al and draw as many C86 comparisons out of the hat as you like because all the influences behind them are here in abundance. Shamble along right now as there is plenty to hear here. It’s wonder(ful) stuff.
Desventura De Verano is out now digitally via Junko Records.
