Since my grasp of Catalan is limited (read: virtually nonexistent) I decided to type a few lyrics from “La Truita” into Google Translate. First, I entered the song’s title, and Google told me it means “trout.” Even with my dismal Catalan skills, I was skeptical about this. I don’t think “La Truita” is about a fish. After several online translations, most reinforcing Google’s definition and some telling me a truita is a tortilla, I decided it was too much trouble to try to translate the whole song. Despite not entirely understanding what’s going on lyrically, the song as a whole is a pleasantly noisy work of distorted pop and one of my favorite tracks from our most recent Fonogramaticos. The band’s debut album, A La Piscina, will be out September 14 on Captured Tracks.
