Allá – Es Tiempo

Now here’s a strange thing, a Spanish speaking band based in Chicago that are signed to a Belgian record label named Crammed Discs. The geographical maze hardly seems to matter though when it comes to sitting down and listening to Allá because their unique communication style bulldozes through any potential language barrier. This is distinctly summer music that flows so organically I’m sure it could be squeezed and end up becoming a swish cocktail. Lupe Martinez has a lovely ethereal quality to her singing; the effect is further bolstered by the exotically fragranced music that surrounds it. ‘Es Tiempo’ is all mouth and no trousers initially but at 1.40 proceedings take an unexpected and delightful twist. I’m convinced that if belly dancers listened to indie then this would be their pre-gig warm up. Sultry has rarely been this loose limbed. KD

    You are right when you call this summer music. I especially like the harmonica and the clapping. Her voice is so smooth and uplifting at the same time, it’s hard not to like this song.
