Una Tormenta de Canciones de Amor a Quemarropa with Los Marcianos - An Interview

Novamente os espanhóis aterrizam nas páginas do TBTCI, desta vez representados pelos Los Marcianos e seu grudento indie rock, com cheiros noventistas, pitadas de class of 86, algo como se os caras representassem o que o The Pains of Being Pure at Heart fazer pelos USA.

Música melódica, grudenta, cantarolável, sonhadora e para sair pulando, é isso que os caras apresentam em seu mais novo disco "Una Tormenta de Canciones de Amor a Quemarropa", título mais auto explicativo do que este impossível.

Esqueça os problemas e seja feliz ouvindo os Los Marcianos bem alto.
