Keep It Coming

the more, the merrier

The dog come from the sea

Posted by keepitcoming on April 20, 2006

What’s with the Swedes and Spanish names? First José González, and now El Perro Del Mar! The girl’s called Sarah, and she got the name from a scene that touched her, when she saw a dog coming from the surf as if out of nowhere while she was on holidays on a Spanish island. Even though her first album is released by Memphis Industries (home of The Go! Team and Dungen), it’s a compilation of EP’s and a single she recorded with Jens Lekman for Secretly Canadian. Her production has been likened to that of a “lo-fi Phil Spector”, which is not too far off, and she recently opened for both Calexico and The Concretes. If you like your music gentle and wistful, this is for you.

Hear more here and there.
