Absolute Belter [coll] – [Behold B-Music]

This new collection of retro sounds, Absolute Belter, features hidden gems, wacky covers, and plenty of psychedelic moments from the Barcelona-based Belter Records. Primarily featuring Spanish artists, this compilation covers a range of styles from the 1960s/70s era.

From groovy keyboards, to fun girl-group sing-alongs (Soledad Miranda), to prog rock action, to plenty of covers of western rock staples (Sonia gives her take on “Get Off Of My Cloud,” Los Huracanes take on “Good Gally [sic] Miss Molly,” Los Roller covers “Crossroads”), this is a fun listen with something for everyone.

The final track, by the TV comedy duo Hermanos Calatrava, is a really strange cover of Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” with a weirdly voiced character offering retorts throughout the song.
