Whim/C’an Picafort

Alter Ego/Freegrant
Two newies from the Spanish duo this month. ‘Whim’s spoils go to Alter Ego, who’ve inked themselves a well-developed, warmer climes number. Flush with sunbaked melodica, its casually gradated build and comparable tone are a façade for a surprisingly tough break-side payday. Freegrant’s ‘C’an Picafort’ offering sounds like it should be Mediterranean in nature, but proves more transatlantic. Buzzed distortion, snapping fills and its piano-centric drop catalyze proceedings nicely.
