Listening to Mercedes Peón – Deixaas

This album in an outlier in my music library. To my preferences, vocals come in second place, after instrumentals, yet all tracks here are sung in Spanish. Moreover the featured voice(s) go beyond melodically reproducing the lyrics, and often enter “performance” territory. Spanish music is also underrepresented in my collection.

Against odds, “Deixass” landed on my desk, got my attention, and I am enjoying it. This album feels new and different, except between some of its own tracks: periodically, the listener will perceive the repetition of its original musical constructs.

Here is the corresponding Spotify playlist.
