Automatik Hit: Galactik FiestaMatik

I’m occasionally humming broken tunes of Rico Blanco’s ‘Amats’ these days, which is very much expected in my case, especially for an unfamiliarly endearing hit of ethnic, punk, and folk sound all rolled into one. These LSS times just remind me of how ungifted I am for not having that gift of music I wish I had. Well at least I'm blessed with these ears to enjoy these kinds of grand.

‘Amats’ is the first single off Galactik FiestaMatik, the second solo album from this madly unpredictable songwriter at his finest. Aside from its totally unique, unconventional yet refreshing arrangement, this single hits me with its nifty, roughly saccharine, and not-to-mention, relatable lyrics. The first time it struck my ears was no moment of silence. It was an insane eagerness of thought-recompilation trying to insensate myself after shattering every bit of my musical sensibility for overreacting to it after the first hear. Mind you, it’s unusual for me to have this music high this high. So, obvious naman diba ang amats ko sa kantang ‘to, kakaiba. Plus, bonus points for having Megan Young in the vid.

Btw, Galactik FiestaMatik’s launch will be on September 5 at Teatrino Greenhills. Finally, ’Amats’ is currently at #12 in MYX Hit Chart. Who says OPM is dead now?
