Sjef Oellers 21-April-2001 Ametsaren Bidea

Errobi is a group from the Basque province in Spain. The music on Ametsaren Bidea is mostly in the folk rock vein, but with an open and spacey sound. The vocals are pleasant and sung in the Basque language. Their music is a bit difficult to pinpoint, but Richard and Linda Thompson's folk rock albums of the 70's come to mind. During the longer, symphonic-edged instrumental sections, Errobi sound not unlike the Argentine band Redd or the more upbeat parts of the Argentine Magma. Not really spectacular, but a decent album with some beautiful music, especially the latter half.
