Hondonero - "Zodiaco" - FyN-33
The surprising return of HONDONERO
ZODIACO is HONDONERO’s second delivery for Flor y Nata Records, after acclaimed "SEÑALES" of 2006. On the road from the time enough like to have turned a solid and experienced band, the band from Málaga (South of Spain) offer a work to us that will surprise with new details since without separating from its roots pleasingly as group of rock and power pop made in Andalucia (not to confuse with the Andalusian Rock) They show us an album that surprises with each new listening and that it catches to the listener by its amplitude of registries. To its habitual guitar pulsión they have added analogical sintethizers, acoustic guitars, samplers, sítars, harmonicas and incredible refrains completing a work full of good music and wonderful songs.
The good creative moment of HONDONERO is reflected in this ZODIACO, in which far from falling in the routine, they explore new registries and shades coming from the listening of Fountains of Wayne, Tom Petty, Gigolo Aunts, Jeevas, The Cars or Cheap Trick.
Every song, a new surprise
Nobody that listens to "90 Grados" – First hit single- will be able to avoid to tararear its enthusiastic, power and contagious refrain; to let itself surround by the synthesized load of the implacable rock of "Zodiaco"; to inhale the cosmic aromas of "Gurú" or "Ritual"; to dance to the rate of tense pop power of "Angel" or "Hacer siempre lo mismo"; to let itself take by sweeping instruments "Blues Explosion"; or to be surprised with the climate "to clubber" of "Crybaby"; until a that new acoustic facet which they develop in skillful "Mar de dudas" or felt "Casi Todo" seems a suit to size for the quartet.
Recorded at los Audiogest estudios in Antequera (Málaga) by José Quintana, band drummer, so perflectly knower of his sound & mastered in Audiomatic (Madrid) by Jose Mª Rosillo, (Amaral, Los Ronaldos, Deluxe, Sunday Drivers, etc...) thar also worked in the last CD “SEÑALES”.
At this CD we can find some colaborations. Manolo Bertrán give his voice at “Mar de dudas“ (It was a great pleasure for HONDONERO the presence of DR. DIVAGO singer), and Charly Rompeharmónicas (Hairy Nipples) that play live with the band and at “Blues Explosion”.
“ZODIACO, 12 songs, 12 jewels”.
