••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

We had to wait longer than we wanted, but here we have at least the fantastic new album by SPRING, a magnificent collection of songs equally delightful for the sight and the hearing. The sight, of course, because their usual designer has done a great job again, elegant and perfectly adapted to the smart image and the universe of the band. And hearing, obviously, because on “The Last Goodbye” (the song by Andy Williams is only the first reference on a long list where admiration, influence and friendship are mixed up) the band from Paris has joined the best virtues from all their previous records to shape their most complete record to this date, announcing a new stage full of great achievements and unforgettable moments.

Now the French scene is receiving a well-deserved attention from both the media and the public, it’s good to remember that it was SPRING who paved the way for all this to happen, making us all turn our looks to their country.

With good taste, charme and constant work, SPRING have reached an enviable cult status which is getting closer to become massive: Spain and France are their natural territories, and the rest of Europe is slowly falling under their spell, gracias a la edición de sus discos en el selecto sello alemán Bungalow; in England they have such famous fans as STEREOLAB, MOOSE or ST ETIENNE, and have been interviewed by the Melody Maker and other trend-setting media; Japan fell for them a long time ago, and the fever has just started in the USA with the inclusion of their songs in movie soundtracks and compilations, and with the big interest of some important companies on the band. The excellent video done for the song “Chuck It Up!” (taken from their previous mini-CD “Out Of Time”, along with DJ Pez) can be seen in stations all over Europe, Japan and the USA, and the new live line-up turns their shows into really groovy, stylish parties.

“The Last Goodbye” mixes up glass-smashing pop and bossanova, acoustic guitars and moogs, hispanic atmospheres and smokey jazz from the Parisian cafes, STEREOLAB’s elegance and ST ETIENNE’s hedonism. Numerous collaborations feature Javier Corcobado (the most renown and admired Spanish crooner), Lincoln Fong (THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN, COCTEAU TWINS...), Joan Vich (ex-THE FRANKENBOOTIES, PATRULLERO MANCUSO), Juan Monje (YOGUR, PATRULLERO MANCUSO), Xavi Suárez (LA BUSQUEDA)... polishing and enriching the band’s sound, in a clear example of their concept of pop: a philosophy of life which includes both the music itself and the long chats about records, movies or travels around a table with some empty bottles of Rioja 73. SPRING teach us how to enjoy life, and they even give us the best soundtrack for it.

Track Name: Aerostat
Oh I’ve been walking down the lane
Under the hippy moon
I’ve been awake to watch the rain
Felt a bit lazy then
I’ve been up and downstairs again
Seen the flowers grow
But down my shower must be you
I do think about
Missing you, no appetite though I do see you everyday”
Sara said so to her friend
Jumble time- how can it be an angel makes me feel so sad?
Offer me your soda drink
Oh, don’t you go
I may collapse and it’s because I wonder why you do feel misunderstood
Jumble time-that’s not enough-to make me stop thinking about you
Offer me your soda drink
Track Name: Microclimat
Ton regard couleur saison mímpressionne
Te donne raison
Elixir dún ruit défendu
Mon oreiller le sait si bien
Je ne dors plus je tourne en rond
Monos rayés ou bikinis sont tes rencontres estivales
Ton sourire bien trop insensé conditionne
Toutes mes pensées
Elixir dún ruit défendu
Mon oreiller le sait si bien
Je ne dors plus je tourne en rond
Monos rayés ou bikinis quand tu me mènes en bateau
Mon oreiller le sait si bien
Je ne dors plus je tourne en rond
Mon oreiller le sait si bien
Je ne dors plus de tout
Track Name: The Naked Kiss
Is it inconvenient to smile if I don’t wanna talk?
You tell me faint is no good then I won’t get a whiskey coke
Is your shadow a pretty place to feel safe?
Some more sham is gonna hit
Is missing full gaps
Some more sham so bleak so weak
Is looking blank at me
Is not gonna feed me
Is it inconvenient to lose my senses in a train?
I only wanna rely into you if you want me to
Is your shadow a pretty place to feel safe?
Some more sham...
Is not gonna fit me
So my window’s opened now
You keep on scanning all day
My look my trousers and my shoes
Is there anyway to get closer to you now?
Switch off the light
I’ve got clothes to pull off
Track Name: Shooting Stars
Stop your practical joking
Track Name: Baby Blue
I could never feel at ease
Yeah but I love you so
Maybe you just wanna tease people
Then I may go
Maybe you just wanna please me though I can’t follow
Cos I feel like I decrease whenever you do so
Upside down
You stick around
I may be needing make-up today
Siliconical affair
I’ll take it off whenerver I want
And I wanna feel at ease
Yeah but I love you so
Because often you deride ´bout me
And so do I
And I’ll pour milk in your tea
Before I go
I’ll go back to loneliness
Oh I don’t wanna go
Upside down...
Wallowing in diffidence
I wish I had a nurse everyday
It´s not a serious offence
When echoes of my shadow step out
Track Name: Lazy
I could never gaze into space
Cos your lovely sighing is amazing
I do shuttle I do feel low
But I may like the way you say
Nothing is going wrong
And I feel capricious
Wanna buy a raincoat
I feel capricious
Oh but your lips they could muddle me up and that much is true
Your morning glory’s gonna make me shiver deep deep inside me
Ho but your lips they could muddle me up and that much is true
You’ve already touched my shoulder
Please don’t sharpen your claws on me
And I don’t really trust in you
Cos the whispered dawn is my only doom cluttering up my sleeping time
So yeah I like it when you say
Nothing is going wrong
And I feel capricious
Track Name: En La Arena Blanca
Tú siempre dices nunca más
Tu mano es como una mariposa
Acariciando sin mentir
Las lágrimas de caramelo
Por la mañana peligrosa
Pasa ya con despedidas
No desnudes tu cariño
En las luces que te miran
Tú sólo dices nada más
Con dos palabras doraditas
No soples velas al cumplir
Deseos de sueños pintados
Track Name: Hysteria 67
News emerge on blue-lined paper from a shy boy
He might puncture any mirror full of power
He sits in the corner of my highway
And the wind tricles down my body
I’ve seen him kissing this cheerful game
Seems to be painting words in purple
On slow motion attitude he wants it louder
He might puncture any mirror full of power
Track Name: Red Bar Evenings
You’ve done me good
And you’ve been filling up my mood
Upsetting snap
Hey that’s ok
So what’s the point on bending heads looking down
Upsetting snap
Hey that’s ok
Do you do you do you love... you baby?
The blue jean’s boy it’s him I do listen to
Now you’ve gone away
Track Name: Guethary
Jái caressé des idées qui me font peur
Toi tu sais quand

Jái fait semblant de lire prés de toi
Sur ton sofa
Track Name: That Jazz!
I don’t know your name
I know you don’t care
I colour nobody’s door
I chalk up letters and draw
I cannot feel mesmerized
Flash in the night
Maybe givin’up all that jazz
Through your city dim light
I feel like I wanna feel
Out of sight
I don’t know your name
But I don´t even care
In the starful ocean I dive
When the burning vision looks wild
I cannot feel mesmerized
Flash in the night
Maybe givin’up all that jazz
Kiss me kiss me kiss me goodbye
I feel like I wanna feel
Out of sight
Cocktails aftershow
Clumsy talk and style
Fanciful low-mass and people chewing gums
