Lejos. No Tan Lejos.
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Nacional Records
The title of the Mexico City band's third album, which means "Far. Not That Far," is an evocative description of the band's sound. Lejos is crafted of swirling currents of sound that dance and twirl around each other. Shimmering synths and crisp beats are softened by a vintage fuzziness. The occasional horn duets with guitars that range from plaintive to penetrating. And over it all soars Lo Blondo's ghostly, gorgeous vocals (just listen to her hoot over the organ on "Un Ano Quebrado"). It is at once otherworldly and familiar, eerie and comforting, far and not that far.
