Barcelona’s Belgrado return with their second album Siglo XXI and first for La Vida Es Un Mus. The 11 track album melds dark and dreamy goth and post punk with a stunning and clear production. The bass leads and drives each track into the batcave whilst the vocals yearn and ache on top. This record has a clear 80’s English influence (Killing Joke, Vex, A Touch of Hysteria, Blood and Roses etc) but it also very modern day Barcelona with the reverb as important as an instrument and totally DIY. 2011’s excellent self titled LP has been bettered in sound, production and song.
The LP comes in a thick black and white sleeve with artwork from drummer Jonathan also including a 30 × 30 insert, an extra lyric sheet and a 40 × 55 poster.
