Delorean's Subiza: An Epic Anthem of Summer

Pitchfork has been kind of "on" lately; first with the Tallest Man Best New Music, then Caribou, then Delorean, then the Radio Dept. But the reason we are here....Delorean's debut LP, Subiza. The album releases physically on June 8, but is out now digitally, both on True Panther. Believe you me, this isn't the first time we've heard Delorean. We have been spinning them since their early EP, Ayrton Senna. I admit that I have done little else but listen to this album for the past month. It is an unearthly intoxication, you just continually go back for more. It has been my secret crack addiction. Yes. I admit I have a problem.

Subiza (named after the town where the record was recorded) is an album that could only be conceived and carried out in a tropical climate. Born out of Barcelona, Delorean's quest for what is good in life comes through in these synth-heavy, electronic summer anthems. When piped through your headphones on a summer day, there is nothing more you want to do than grab some friends, a bunch of cold beverages and have a day-party. Picture the Busch Light commercial except superimpose a bunch of hipsters drinking luke-warm PBRs on a graffitied rooftop somewhere in the East Village. Snub your noise if you like, but this album is a call to summer. Rally the troops, take a Friday off and let Subiza ride. I hail this, the summer of Delorean.

Check it out this video report about Delorean, a Spanish band rising on U.S. indie scene.
It's an experiment of new journalism and creative remix. I hope you like it!
