LA BÚSQUEDA Probably the most relevant Majorcan band of the last two decades. Fantastic blend of pop, latin and roots, great multi instrumentation with the superb voices of Francisco Albeniz and Arantxa Andreu. They plan to adapt into Spanish a cover of Tom Waits Cold cold ground. Sat 5 July @ 22.30 Claustre del Convent, Muro 10€ from Xocolat, Palma or mail to DAWN LANDES + DEVON SPROULE Reminiscent of the raw traditionalism of Woody Guthrie and the experimental alt-folk lyricism of artists like Joanna Newsome, the Louisville KY native plays a variety of instruments. She is one of the most interesting female voices of the incredible catalogue of Fargo Records (maybe the best Americana genre label in Europe). Support from Devon Sproule, who recently played at London Union Chapel with fantastic reviews. Tues 15 July @ 20.00 Centre de Cultura Sa Nostra, Concepció 12, Palma Free entrance RICHARD HAWLEY In an era where next big things, scenes and in-sounds flash by and even our favourite tunes are listened to on shuffle, we need music that will stick around for a while, albums that we can go on listening to in one sitting until they wear out like previous generations had done with their Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, The Beatles and The Smiths records. Something real. Something timeless. Something proper. A Mercury nominated performer in 2006, of whom Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys, (whose debut album won the prize that year) famously exclaimed “Someone call 999, Richard Hawley’s been robbed!” Sat 26 July @ 22.00 Bellver Castle, Palma 20€ from Xocolat, Palma or mail to
