ABOUT THIS ITEM
After debuting with the shiny pop gem that was "China Es Otra Cultura" in 2009, and on the back of the remix EP "Fabuloso San Jose" (with contributions by Nite Jewel, Part Time and Ruby Suns), Madrid based songstress Ana Naranjo, better known as Linda Mirada, is back with "Con Mi Tiempo Y El Progreso". Once again, the album sees a young woman paying a heartfelt tribute to all things pop, especially that of the eighties kind, putting even more emphasis on the synth sounds of Jan Hammer, the feel of the soundtracks of films like "After Hours", and the string of Spanish artists that popped up like mushrooms during that decade, so defining for Spanish music culture. All that, while at the same time unafraid to speak out her admiration for bands like Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads and New Music.
"Con Mi Tiempo Y El Progreso" is a homage to Linda Mirada's childhood: Spain was in the midst of a cultural awakening, after forty years of fascist dictatorship. All kinds of Anglo-Saxon films and shows were flooding the Spanish TV channels, while at the same time the famous "Movida madrileña" (the underground cultural scene in the country's capital) was bursting with creativity. Everything was happening all at once, and the rapid succession of events left their mark on wee Ana forever.
