I'm glad you liked it. There's an interesting generation of young indie bands singing in Spanish at the moment. And I still have to "explore" much of their music, especially that from the Americas.

I'm sure that From Monarchy to Cryptocracy's video contains many references from 70's horror films (like those directed by Dario Argento, etc.) and perhaps some kind of esoteric symbolism. I'm not especially interested in that particular cinema genre, but I know there are several "cult movies" from that decade, at least to the genre lovers.

Klaus & Kinski (a funny name, BTW) has an attractive dreamy sound, indeed. I can hardly understand what they sing (you know, that's shoegazing) but I like this band. Song En la cama (which means "In Bed" and, more of less, it says ♫ "In bed / In your bed / That's the best / Beside you / That's what I like it / In bed..." ♫) perfectly expresses the feelings of an infinite and pleasant laziness (or, as Italians say, dolce far niente), like in a Saturday morning, preferably together with a sweet sleepy lover. I also like, among other songs, Ley y moral ("Law and Morals"): it has surrealistic and almost-inaudible lyrics, but it sounds good to me.

* Another one of my favourite indie bands: Los Punsetes. I admit they're a little crazy (well, maybe totally crazy), but I love them anyway. A perfect example of how to combine dreamy and evocative music with surrealistic and humorous lyrics. This is Maricas ("Gays"):



♫ "Quiero morir en una discoteca llena de maricas.............I wanna die at a disco full of gays.
Quiero morir bebiendo vino a morro de una barrica................I wanna die while drinking wine straight out of a cask.
Quiero morir en el preciso instante en que lo diga una chica
.............I wanna die at the very moment a girl wants.
Quiero una muerte tonta de esas que nadie se explica..............I wanna have one of those stupid and incomprehensible deaths.

(...)

Quiero morir en las garras de un ser omnipotente
.............I wanna die into an omnipotent being's clutches.
Quiero morir con los brazos abiertos de cuerpo presente.............I wanna die with open arms and lying in repose.
Quiero morir en una conferencia frente a un ponente.............I wanna die during a lecture in front of the speaker.
Quiero cantar canciones guarras en brazos de la muerte.............I wanna sing dirty songs while being in Death's arms.

Se supone que la vida no es tan estridente.........Life is not supposed to be that shrill.
Mamá está equivocada y los libros mienten..........Mum is wrong and books lie.
Mamá está equivocada y los libros mienten..........Mum is wrong and books lie.
Mamá está equivocada y los libros mienten............Mum is wrong and books lie..." ♫

I understand you. I've heard similar things many times. It's disappointing to see how certain Hispanic "musical exportations" sound lately, whereas much great music remains unknown outside the Spanish-speaking world. That's why we are trying to "spread the word" here.

They are Italian covers: Come Una Pietra Scalciata (Like a Rolling Stone) and Non Dirle Che Non E' Cosi' (If You See Her, Say Hello). I like the second one, but, in my opinion, the first one is a "cultural crime" that should be punished with ten years of forced labours in a Silvio Berlusconi's company.

Wanna listen to a good Spanish cover of Dylan? Memphis Blues. That is, Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again. By Kiko Veneno and Santiago Auserón (aka Juan Perro, ex-Radio Futura's vocalist and composer):
