la bien querida Fiesta (CD, £8.50)label: elefant
2nd album from Spain's La Bien Querida. Just five years ago Madrid painter Ana Fernandez-Villaverde took up the guitar, and now she’s one of Spain’s most talked-about artists. Performing as La Bien Querida or “The Beloved”, she channels Francoise Hardy’s subdued sex kitten thing. Her songs are simple things but with a disarming beauty, fabulous poems about falling in and out of love that mirror the sweetness of La Buena Vida or Claudine Longet.
