For a limited time only
Limited vinyl LP pressing of this 2000 album including digital download. Le Mans’ second album is iconic in Elefant Records’ discography. Maybe all of the albums from this group from San Sebastian are, but each in its own different and identifying way. Entresemana was the step between Le Mans and Saudade, but above all it was the album on which the group fronted by Ibon Errazkin and Teresa Iturrioz payed tribute to minimalist pop, with beyond perfect string arrangements; slippery but free touches of jazz; and that concept of melody that is so specific to them and so open and fragile but also unpredictable; the album that put them at the head of that train that vindicated the music of Vainica Doble. Entresemana seems like an album dedicated to laziness - laziness as pleasure, as emotion, and motivation. That which has never been seen. Hedonism taken to its quintessence, with traditional airs full of an irony that magisterially mixed sweetness and bitterness. The album smells like the sand from La Concha beach, it has a breath of the breezes that come over Monte Igueldo, and makes this paused contemplation and exercise in intense beauty, refined by superb string arrangements that push these songs that feel sometimes like they might break but which, when you realize it, are actually holding onto you with all their strength.
