here's another fantastic Spanish pop gem {sung in Catalan}, Cançó de l'Alba from Barcelona-based indie folk/pop minimalists Bedroom off their album "El Fum Blanc" (2011).

Cançó de l'Alba is a haunting et magical track tinged with melancholy, it's like being lost at sea, drifting aimlessly with the currents, floating on your back, gazing up at the changing sky, the gliding birds, letting the undulating waves gently move your body up et down, a strangely soothing, rocking sensation, long buried memories come flooding back, tears begin to run down your face ... Cançó de l'Alba is a deeply moving et resonant listening experience, one to be savored! enjoy!

MP3: Cançó de l'Alba

it is becoming very clear that Spanish surrealism is alive et well, perhaps not so much in cinema, but there are an increasing number of remarkable ultra-hip, surrealistic music videos coming out of Spain of late {La Bien Querida's Hoy, El Guincho's Bombay to name two exceptional clips, both by the awesome production company CANADA}. so do yourself a favour et check out the stunning music video for Cançó de l'Alba directed by Ramón Ayala {Compañía Volcánica}, the video is an interesting mix/influence of Magritte, Godard, Tarkovsky, Jarmusch, Arcimboldo, Bas Jan Ader et of course Bunuel! enjoy!

the "El Fum Blanc" album is available from Foehn Records on cd or lp! et it is available digitally online at itunes ...
