mushy title led me to think, cheesy pop done Flamenco-style.
Sometimes it is nice to be wrong. The Music From Beautiful
Spain is actually heavenly pop music. It is laconic and
lush pop with whispered female vocals cooing over the
top. Think Audrey Hepburn singing Burt Bacharach. In
(mostly) Spanish, of course. This is fab lazy-summer-Sunday
music. Local record company, Avant Garden Records is
releasing CDs from the Spanish label Siesta with acts
such as Rita Calypso, Zola, Niza and Camera Obscura.
And to entice us, they have released this compilation
CD for NT$69. Get it now. And get a few more for friends
around the world.
