Music I am loving: De La Montana

I have been listening to this album on repeat for two days. I just love it. De La Montana’s sound is very synth-pop but I find the melodies more interesting than a lot of stuff I have heard recently. The lyrics tend to be pretty transparent, which some people may dislike, but come on, it’s hipster rock.

Madison Velding-VanDam leads the group, which he describes as “a musical/visual arts project born in Santiago, organized in Berlin, and internationally based – currently in Ann Arbor, Michigan.” I am thrilled to hear that the band is based so close to Detroit. I am definitely going to keep my eye out for any future shows that I can catch the next time I visit.

Oh, I forgot to mention the best part. Right now the entire album is available to download free on De La Montana’s bandcamp page. {Check them out!}
