REVIEW: El Cantador - Translation Wave EP

Are you looking for something a bit different?  We present the Translation Wave EP from El Cantador.  The record is the sound of the band experimenting with their sound and pushing the limits of their songwriting.  The result is highly dynamic, progressive post punk music with a uniquely southern shading.  Sometimes intimate and small, and others cinematic in scope, it shows that exciting things can happen when pop musicians think outside the lines.

"My Way" and "Particle and Wave" demonstrates the band's adventurous spirit --

"Pilgrims is, quite simply, a great pop song --

El Cantador are Sean Murphy (Drums/Percussion), Alex Scharr (Bass/Piano/Synths/Vocals), and Heath Underwood (Guitar/Vocals/Electric Piano).

The Translation Wave EP is out now on two labels, This Is American Music and Mod Mobilian.  You can source the record at either label, or at the Bandcamp link below.
