POLOCK-Getting Down From The Trees (Nacional Records, 2010)
Then after I played the second song I decided they sounded way too much like Phoenix. And that reminded me that I used to love that one Phoenix song (back in like 2001) and hey! Those Phoenix guys are French and I wasn't pissed off by their singing in English, in fact, it didn't bother me at all. Maybe I should give these Spaniards a fair chance. (By the way, don't you hate the word Spaniard? What's wrong with the good ol' Spanish? Is it too Mexican for your Gringo ears?)
So I uploaded the album to my Ipod and listened to it while I walked around the lake in the hottest day of this summer, wishing I could be naked at the beach instead, and it was the most adequate soundtrack I could've ever imagined. OK, Polock, you are forgiven, you can sing in any language you like, I don't care.
