As I mentioned the other day, I have about 30 unread messages in my inbox for Alternative Airwaves. All of it is music I’ve forwarded to myself (which is somewhat unfortunate, because I’d love to hear from readers/listeners), and I just haven’t found the time to listen to them. Most of the music is creative commons licensed stuff, while other bits are just free tracks from various artists that I may or may not mention. Anyway. First up we have The Singletons and their self-titled album, The Singletons.
FrostClick calls them “British Mod Influenced Spanish Scenesters”. I’m not exactly sure what they mean by that, because I’m not the most versed in the music scene; but I do hear the British influence in their music. If you weren’t listening to the Spanish lyrics, you could probably easily mistake them for a British punkish kind of band. Oh yeah, about the Spanish bit – they’re from Barcelona, apparently. That would not have been my first guess (I would have figured South America or something).
There’s a little bit of everything too, including some surf influences. Overall, I really liked the guitar work on most of the tracks – these guys are definitely very talented, there’s no doubt about that. However, I agree with FrostClick’s assessment: this album isn’t going to blow your mind, but it’s a good listen. Check them out if you get the chance.
