Mondosonoro is a monthly Spanish music magazine, available free in bars. It’s particularly important for the support it gives to live music and the independent scene. Here is their list of the top 40 Spanish albums of 2013.

The winner is ‘De Palmas Y Cacería’, the third album by Pony Bravo. They are a band from Andalusia who mercilessly take the piss out of everything, not least the political situation in Spain. I’ve chosen this track, a slice of satirical punk-funk, which comes complete with a very funny video. It opens with a clip of the late Salsa singer Héctor Lavoe who says:

“La salsa y la política no mezclan. Imagínenme a mí dando un discurso al son de ´Voten por mí porque la rumba está buena´”.

Like many Spanish Indie bands Pony Bravo seem to have given up trying to sell CDs, and their music is available to download for free from their Soundcloud page. https://soundcloud.com/el-rancho

EL POLÍTICO NEOLIBERAL

Yo soy el político neoliberal	
me gusta ir a las fiestas del Banco Central
vuela la cocaína por los despachos del Capital
vótenme porque mi rumba está buena 
vótenme porque mi rumba está buena

yo hago lobby, lobby,	lobby, lobby 
lo vi robar, lo vi robar, yo lo vi robar 
yo hago lobby, lobby,	lobby, lobby 
lo vi robar, lo vi robar, yo lo vi robar 

Sarkozy-kozy-kozy	
Sarkozy-cosí-cosá

el final de campaña siempre es lo mejor
el final de campaña siempre es lo mejor

barbacoa en la ONU
caracoles en la UNESCO	
vótenme porque mi rumba está buena

vótenme, vótenme, vótenme, vótenme
THE NEOLIBERAL POLITICIAN

I am the neoliberal politician
I like to go to parties at the Central Bank
Cocaine flies into the offices in the capital
Vote for me because I'm good at the rumba 
Vote for me because I'm good at the rumba

I lobby, lobby, lobby
I saw him steal, I saw him steal
I lobby, lobby, lobby
I saw him steal, I saw him steal

Sarkozy-kozy-kozy	
Sarkozy-sewed-something

The end of a compaign is always the best
The end of a compaign is always the best

Barbecue at the UN
Snails at UNESCO
Vote for me because I'm good at the rumba

Vote for me! Vote for me!
