Some fantastic Indie/Power Pop/Surf from Madrid. Los Autonautas, deliver a really delightful album full of cool breezy songs, jangly guitar, hooks and harmonies.
The album is sung completely in Spanish, but this doesn't detract in any way from the quality of the songs and if you don't speak Spanish, I am sure you will find yourself singing along anyway and becoming fluent in next to no time, even if you don't know what you are singing!
If we are to believe the bands bio, which I translated via "Google Translate," Los Autonautas met 4 decades ago when members of the band met after a mistake in interstellar travel and all landed in 1960's California, the band all took on human forms except for Mr Pazos, who, as a gas matter couldn't do this. The band then took up playing instruments in order to study the youth of the planet and began writing songs of desire, love, despair, excitement and the desire to annoy.
Fearing the US government, the band returned to "Rhea" (13th Moon of Jupiter) where they penned their songs, which they regularly return to earth to share with us.
Ok, I think that Google translate is having a laugh too, but hey ho, this is a fine album, go check it out yourself.
Los Autonautas from "Rhea." (Honest!)
