Seres - 'Enigma Humano'

Native language or not, this is often a treat; if it's a Seres, I can't wait for the next episode.

Between a hundred thousand and two million people speak the language which LL Zamenhof produced in 1887; sadly, Esperanto is not common. The Euro Zone may have a common currency, but they (and we) cannot give over our language, it defines us, separates us, shows our distance.

Seres, formed in 2005 as an instrumental vehicle, have some great music to offer here, now including vocals in their native language. Should that put us off... no. Could it... yes. Here, it's no issue at all because Seres keep you guessing.

Beginning with a 1980's vibe ('Una Mas'), '30 Segundos' has the temerity to actually Skank but has a Funky bass to offer too, 'De Madrugada' visits the cocktail bar and as last orders are called, a B3 solo swaddles us all in warm memories.



When not knocking us dead, at least it's interesting; 'Ese Instante' calls Jeff Lynne and borrows his sound, failing to be as large as ELO but at least they try and really as the fourteen tracks play out, the lack of quality becomes painfully obvious, Spanish inflected Folkiness leading to a cheesy synth instrumental by way of a groovy guitar and synth/guitar interplay ('Ladron') but this is a small quibble with a well presented digi-pack and the surprising music within.

Native language or not, this is often a treat; if it's a Seres, I can't wait for the next episode.

The first time I saw this album cover I thought they were an english band but it took by surprise listening the preview songs in spanish, so I took the risk and I loved it!
I really don't care about spanish lyrics (book included) you can sit and enjoy a very good album.
Look for them and you'll figure it out.
there is another music video you can watch https://youtu.be/7I3P18v7WfQ

bye!!!
