15 EUR
El que fuera líder de THE ZEROS (grupo clave en el punk de Los Angeles de finales de los 70 y principios de los 80) y de THE TRUE BELIEVERS (formado en los 80 con su hermano Alejandro, considerados uno de los grupos pioneros del alt-country, tan en boga hoy en día), publica “City Lights”, un disco compuesto por canciones redondas, abandonando la velocidad de sus principios, pero sin perder un ápice de energía y con unas grandísimas melodías, y un sonido impresionante, digno de los musicazos que lo han grabado: Brian Young (Fountains Of Wayne/Posies) a la batería, Joe Bass (Posies) al bajo y Josh Schwartz (Beachwood Sparks) a la guitarra.

------------------------

Former leader of The Zeros (a key band in the Los Angeles punk scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s) and The True Believers (formed in the ’80s with his brother, the acclaimed Alejandro Escovedo, and considered one of the pioneering bands of alt-country, so in vogue today), presents “City Lights”, an album full of perfect songs, leaving behind the speed of his early songs but without losing any energy. You will find the best in power pop, with great melodies, and an awesome sound worthy of the great musicians who recorded it: Brian Young (Fountains Of Wayne/Posies) on drums, Joe Bass (Posies) on bass, and Josh Schwartz (Beachwood Sparks) on guitar.
