TILT Music Blog – The Mistake
Don’t let the name of this group fool you, ’cause they don’t sing in english. The Mistake is a group of rockers from Islas Canarias, Spain. In their junior recording they create a sound that although has marked influences (at least thew few I can name) gives them a space of their own. This album “Anticongelante” has marked influences/sounds to Nueva Vulcano, Los Planetas, Interpol to just name a few. On their myspace we get five songs to listen to, and among them I have to say that “Labor de Reciclaje” and “Un Mundo Sin Alfombras” are just ass kickin’ good. Very guitar based sound but with some programmed sounds that ellaborate the idea. The voice is just powerful and captivating. “Canción Anticongelante” is a more mellow approach but still good and full of nice and warm melodies. The other songs are from their previous recordings. And although not there to listen, the song “La Edad De Hierro” is to my understanding the best song of the album. But fear not, you see they have their album on sale on their space (song by song) and you can listen to a small exerpt and if you like it buy the song you like or the whole deal. Your call. All I know is that they are good. It was about time I found a band that rocked, after such a long time in the mellow indie electronic scenes. This was definitely not a mistake.
