Album Review

Restos de un Incendio is a collection of songs that appeared on Migala's three previous studio albums, but all of the songs have now been perfected. They've been re-recorded and adjusted as the band saw fit. With better arrangements, stronger playing, and a more focused intensity, the album easily sees Migala as masters of moody, atmospheric rock. The usual influences and comparisons are still in place: Godspeed You Black Emperor's epic instrumental fury, Nick Cave's introspection and intensity, Leonard Cohen's low-key yet emotional delivery, Tindersticks' poetic explorations, Arab Strap's modern slow-burn, and Ry Cooder's spatial painting. Acoustic guitars shimmer and jangle, accordions fade in and out of the ether, a piano twinkle causes tension, and Abel Hernandez enunciates with a beguiling honesty, his vocals stronger and more compelling than ever.

Highlights abound, and there's a not a weak song among the 11 tracks, as the band shuffles around in truly inspired territory where delicate whispers and bombastic electric guitars never seem out of place or forced. If Sergio Leone is making movies in some sort of afterlife, he's surely including Migala's music as soundtrack material.
