El afán by Alex Ferreira
Released: Oct 2012
Label: WM Spain
El afán is one of those albums that just hits you, smack in the gut -- and the heart, and the brain. A gorgeous slice of indie pop, El afán dabbles in warm horns and crisp beats, thoughtful guitars and plucky cuatros, country and cumbia, post-punk and vintage exotica, with Ferreira's intimate vocals drawing you into each sonic experiment. "Bailando en las orillas" works a wind section like a less angsty Sufjan Stevens, while sleepy "La apuesta," with its world-weary vocals, breaks your heart and makes you think. Whatever you do, don't miss the richly layered "Me Pierdo Contigo."
