The Zinedines

Album Title: Take Me Take Me
Release Date: October 5, 2004
Genre: Pop/Rock
It is incredibly easy to like the music The Zinedines create. Laid back melodies, nice harmonies, jangly guitars - a pleasant listen from start to finish, with no obtuse metal machine music daring your eardrums to explode. Wearing their influences on their sleeve, the Spanish quartet successfully foray into the world of power-pop music, with a psychedelic twist to push them in a slightly different direction than contemporaries The Shins or The New Pornographers. Channelling 'Sgt. Pepper's' era Beatles through sitar soaked songs like 'Diggin' Everything' and 'Mantra Two', The Zinedines take listeners of 'Take Me Take Me' back a few decades, but at the same time pay homage to their own time through their explicit love of effects pedals and trippy vocal manipulation. To top it off, lead singer Manel Martinez's potent accent shines through, allowing him to pull of lyrics like "She gave me the moon/It was shining like a silver spoon" in such a loveable way that no one is the wiser.
