About this item
Periodica offshoot Futurible continue to treat us more than kindly with a wonderous bit of Balearic boogie / sublime soft synth serenade (delete as appropriate) from Chilean musician Marcelo Antonio Galleguillos Torres. Though he may sound like the kind of South American midfield enforcer you'd expect to cause a career threatening injury after boshing too much per-match powder, Marcelo's actually a sensative soul with a musical mind. "Suspension" shifts through sunblushed PPU guitar licks and Roland claves, two steps around late 80s George Michael synth riffs and weaves a spell with wonderful Spanish vocals. Light as you like, the track trots the same saccharine streets as the more uptempo moments of the Menage A Trois catalogue, always a good thing in my book. Over on the flip, "Males De Otro Lugar" drops in with dreamy DX7 leads, breathy Berlin pads and divine pop vocals, hurting my heart but making me smile.
Patrick says: Futurible's fresh 7" comes all the way from Valparaiso Chile, where Marcelo Antonio wanders the streets, trading in the most sensual synth pop around. Absurdly Balearic and totally limited, this is A-grade buy on sight tackle.
