El Perro Del Mar - From The Valley To The Stars
She may have one of the most 'unique' last names in artistry, but perhaps that's why she's been releasing albums under the psuedo of El Perro Del Mar. Other than the name issue, based simply on her third release (second official studio album) Sarah Assbring has a multi-directional set of pipes that can easily take over such smooth lounges without missing a beat
"How Did We Forget" is a hot wond of brass and soothe, crawling in a barely hopped up rhythm, I'm left looking for my Air Moon Safari disc. Its not just horns and hollowed voices. The following track Inside the Golden Egg has fair piano melody that becomes the heartbeat. One of my favorites is track seven "Inner Island" where Sarah's voice comes to a spotlight, and controls the melody that echoes long after the song has ended. All through out the disc, enjoy a very kinetic and electronic basis of notes. Lot's of boardwork and keyboard but used in a very tasteful and laidback 21st century flavoring.
Though her genre and niche does not that call for it, I'll off a full star rating for a lack of percussion. Just a soft touch of something drum or deep is quite possible all that is missing on From The Valley To The Stars. El Perro Del Mar is by far one of the most pleasing pop queen's of her genre, melting multi-instrumental ceiling staring pop. Now with Licking Fingers (The Concretes) look to E.P.D.M. as most enjoyable to study or read with, but you'd be surprised the fantastic mood it will set socializing or gathering. I have been missing out El Perro for far too long, It's time I dig deeper into this past.
