Editing My Best of ’04…

Bebe-Pafuera_Telaranas-Frontal
Come to think of it, I don’t remember composing a best of list five years ago. And by no means was it lack of quality; because coveted records emerged in that era: Arcade Fire’s Funeral, Autolux’s Future Perfect, and yes, The Faint’s Wet From Birth, amongst other goodies. My endless task of organizing my digital collection has had its ups and downs. On the plus side, the endless emergence of forgotten tracks, like this have kept me motivated to continue this enduring task. Inside a dusty, neglected folder are poorly labeled tracks that are finally finding a home. The (re) discoveries are being made on almost a daily basis. One with legs though, was Bebe – the Spanish artist who takes genres in all directions to bring an excellent, catchy mix worth returning to again and again.

Her Malo track was the catalyst to hunt down her Pafuera Telarañas record, an eclectic collection of flamenco, meets folk, blended together with upbeat, Latin rhythms. Sometimes, the delivery is tranquil and gives the sense everything is OK; but at other times, the lyrics are unleashed with a rapid cadence and fiery motive. In 2009, after finally being exposed to everything 2004 had to offer, I’ve come to the conclusion Bebe’s record is worthy of being listed with the aforementioned titles. Brush up on your Español or, just enjoy what’s left of the summer…
