So there was an artist with a double appearance in my list of the best albums of 2008, the psychedelic and bizarre world of Crepus, a world of musical freedom rarely found in pop. It’s been months since my first listen of Escuela de Zebras, and I must say that I’m rediscovering that album as its narrative is truly of reference, stories of love and people, about relationships. Crepusculo is now deservedly one of the most important figures in Spanish pop, even displacing Russian Red as the year’s big breakthrough in Spain. He has stopped by the blog and brings us one of his songs for us to highlight, “Los Lagartos” (from Supercrepus) which has some hot keys in an electrifying cumbia.
