Various Artists Spain Is Different
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: HiTop
By now, we know Spain suffers from grievous heartaches just like ours, but this album stays on the sunnier surface. Spain's saucy party-face is indeed different than ours, as it shrugs off the weight of the world and steps into this mix with a kick of the hips. The tracks compiled here, from Madrid's HiTop label, are the musical equivalent of a huge grin and a bottoms-up glass of jazz, Latin and Brazilian funk. Gecko Turner's "Un Limon En La Cabeza" has a clean, breezy finish on its horns, while Dan Matias' "Kongo Kool" opens with a sax line that coyly winks at you from the speakers.
