Hasn't Come Out Yet: Delorean - Subiza
Release date: June 8, 2010
Blisscore is one of those annoying trend-genres that exist only because people got tired of saying "dance-pop." Which is fine, ultimately, because Delorean really doesn't sound anything like Lady Gaga or Kylie Minogue. Subiza would be more comfortable alongside Cut Copy or Friendly Fires. The best I can say is, it just doesn't sound like something an American could manage.
This group comes from Spain, the country in Europe with the most sunshine (I don't know if that's true, but from the sounds of Subiza, I think it's an apt deduction). These songs shimmer like trails of headlights on a Barcelona night. It's summertime city love, parties on the weekend that boring people don't go to. It's music you smile and dance to even if you've never heard it before. Delorean. Blisscore. Oh yes.
So for anyone who's been waiting for that first great summer album of 2010, here it is. And Chicagoans, oh boy, you know how we love ourselves a good summer album. This is one for sunglasses, windows down and cloudless skies.
And Subiza might have the most beautiful cover art I've seen all year. Does anybody else just want to take an afternoon stroll through a sculpture park now? If you don't, check out this first single and see if you can't feel the ice just melting to the beat:
