Arde (which translates to ‘It Burns’) is the third full-length from Spain’s Migala. Having, in their brief history (their debut, Deciembre 3am, was released in ‘97), played shows in Spain with the likes of Smog, The Magnetic Fields, Damon & Naomi, Mark Kozelek, and Will Oldham (they were Oldham’s backing band on a recent Spanish tour), Migala are increasingly gaining the notice the deserve. Similar in emotional intent to Leonard Cohen’s classic Death of a Ladies’ Man, the songs found on Arde are wistful, poignant, and smolderingly beautiful. Originally released on the Spanish label Acuarela in December, 2000, Sub Pop is exceedingly proud to put out the first official U.S. release of Arde.
