What a massive song! Great video for a song that starts off slow and ends up a brilliant build-up. This is why one does not need a lot of cash to make a memorable promo clip.

Costa Rica’s Las Robertas are coming to England for the very first time. Judging by the music I’ve heard, it’s going to be worth it. Falling somewhere between C86, fuzzy pop, and ’60s psych, the group have a slate of top gigs lined up, including one with contemporaries Veronica Falls and Vivian Girls.

They were impressive at SXSW earlier this year, upping my excitement for their gigs this summer. As an added bonus, a tour-only cassette will be available at gigs which also includes music from some of their show mates. For a preview, download the tune “Ghost Lover” below.
