Spanish Love Songs’ sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows with the immediacy of intimate, lived-in lyrics. Their first album, “Giant Sings the Blues,” chronicles singer Dylan Slocum’s mid-twenties through songs about apathy, anxiety, and a slowly disintegrating marriage, all told over fast drums and rousing power chords. Their second album “schmaltz” now finds the five piece punk band from Los Angeles expanding their sound both musically and lyrically. More anthemic than ever, Spanish Love Songs tear through eleven songs in which Slocum tries to find a positive way to handle loss and self-acceptance. The result is a rousing work of art, which not only celebrates great music, but can also offer depth.
