“Extractes d’un diari”, by Balago.

The fourth album by the Spanish band Balago is not only their personal peak, their most melodic and rhythmic work, but also one of the most serious works of the Spanish musical avant-garde: “the Abbey Road of the drone”. Its twenty-one tracks show a wide variety of registers in that catalogue of the most dreamlike and nocturnal ambient that is Extractes d’un diari. They are, moreover, long enough for them to reach their own entity and not remain mere sketches, and short enough for the listener to be left wanting more.
