cd cover Antònia Font
Taxi (Discmedi)

CD plus a bonus DVD (PAL format)

AntÚnia Font is a great folk-rooted rock band from Catalunya, Spain. This is a CD recording, plus a free DVD video (PAL format).
The music is fresh and charming, with hints of Brazilian pop and folk, great Catalanian poetry and folk and a strong sense of absurdity and humor. The sweet humor comes forth on the free DVD video included, a short musical film called "Acronia i col-lapse del Dr Polanski," a story of 19th century space travel, robots, moon rabbits and ultimately, romance.

The press from the record label says:
Elegance, poetry, captivating melodies, enchanting atmospheres and something, truly intangible, truly deep, we can do nothing but name Mediterranean. The music of AntÚnia Font, whose name comes from their very first fan, carries a pop genome. It is pop music with a patina of the sensual light of the Mediterranean, painted with echoes of it's vivid colours. Nothing you can write in a score but something you can nearly touch in the band's songs, as if it were composed somewhere in the middle of a Miro landscape.

Antonia Font's music gathers the influence of Caetano Veloso's calmed saudade, Pascal Comelade's delicate universe, Syd Barret's visionary psychedelia and the Catalan surrealist songwriting tradition of the late 60s and 70s exemplified by Sisa and Pau Riba. An instrumental dress made to surround probably the most personal element of Antonia Font's proposal: the lyrics. Surrealism, imagination, the poetry of daily life and a capacity to paint images in the mind, so much so that the band has took the decision of creating a whole movie ( you'll find in the DVD disc included with "Taxi", finally transformed in a soundtrack.) Together they're a multimedia piece of art and a major work not only for the band's but for the whole Spanish pop scene.

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
