Track of the Day: 'A Movement Between These Two'

Past TracksAll music is international. Gone are the days when styles and genres could be expected to reflect the geography of one place and time. Which, in a way, is how it's always been. Both psychedelic rock and hardcore started in various locales only to expand globally into variations such as Italian hardcore and Cambodian psych.

The brave young Madridians of Hola Todo El Mundo are a prime example of this internationalization. Their flavor of indie folk maps accordingly with other American sylvan bands like Fleet Foxes and Devendra Banhart, but with the enthused chanting rhyme, handclaps, and castanets of a Spanish street festival. Songs like "A Movement Between These Two" imagine an altogether distinct, phantasmagoric countryside.
