FORMATS: CD [SOLD OUT] / LP [SOLD OUT] / Digital Album
THE PRIBATA IDAHO’s third album shows a very self-assured band, sage and experienced but without losing the freshness every good pop band should always keep. They’ve achieved that good oldies sound bringing it closer and making it modern, timeless and eternal, like in the best classics. They’ve escaped the easy arrangements and classic structures, looking for the most suitable atmosphere to enhance the beauty of each melody, and Carlos Torero’s production lets us know the work they’ve done in composition, as the beautiful basslines on “Nowadays Hero”. In this song we find as well the very personal colaborationship by Murky and Guiller from eccentric popsters PATRULLERO MANCUSO, whilst another common friend, Olaf Ladousse from SOLEX, leaves the unmistakable mark of his homemade pedals by the end of “A Gentle Reminder”. Other guests in this record are Carlos Torero and David Gwynn in the exuberant eastern passage which comes after the restrained psychedelia of “Cows, Pigs, Wars And Witches”.
“A Gentle Reminder” shows a different psychedelia, optimistic and full of light this time, with an introduction in a pure delightful 60’s way. “Miseries Collector” is a mid-tempo arranged with a jazzy clarinet as that in “Nowadays Hero”, and “G” isn obsessive psychedelic rant coming back in its reprise “G Again”.
In spite of the pessimistic, wasted feeling which a few titles could transmit (“Miseries Collector”, “Mothers Of Destruction”...), it’s enough with one listen to the smiley introduction of “A Gentle Reminder” or the great chorus in “That Kind Of Pity” to see that the album’s title couldn’t be other than “Hope”, before a brilliant future for a band which has already become a legend in the Spanish pop history.
