El Submarinista En El Tejado




“El submarinista en el tejado” (“Diver on the Roof”), is Sonic Youth intense in its climactic peaks and drips in filmic Morricone quirk when taking breath. Bolstered with baritones and a fistful of brass, it is the band’s debut and fittingly comes out on the long-respected Madrid label, Lovemonk.

Made up by a group of players from Madrid’s jazz, Afrobeat and black music scene, Forastero are little known out of Spain, yet they have been experimenting with fuzzed up and leftfield beats and pieces in many of the capital’s renowned live music ‘salas’ over the years. A six-piece, the group plays baritone sax, keys, synths, double bass, guitar, theremin and drums, and have no interest in playing fiddle to Madrid’s conservative jazz audiences. In fact, it’s the environment of a somewhat static new jazz scene in Madrid that has given the impetus for Forastero’s creation and ‘outsider’ attitude. Literally their name, ‘Forastero’, means ‘stranger’ or ‘foreigner’.
