College Sedative: Pequeña Fiera

This is the time of the year when I start to dig up a lot of lo-fi stuff that smooth the exhausting process of a new school year, a lot of the Christmas releases work wonderful as sedatives, some of my friends go straight for Sigur Ros but they can be complicated sometimes and that’s the last thing I need right now. Turns out I’m in need for low keys (casiotone keys? better!). I recently download one of Spain’s best kept secrets, Pequeña Fiera’s albums No Words, Mini Songs With No Words and Casiotone For Bears are part of a beautiful box of subtle music, along with Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest my musical accompaniments while walking on campus or riding the light rail. Error! Lo Fi liberated these three releases for free download, I find them very temporal since they didn’t really hit me until now, I’m sure I’ll get back to “Campus” by Vampire Weekend in a few weeks, but for now it is doing wonders.
