Five Spanish Songs never feels like an vanity-project indulgence, but rather a clear, concerted effort on Bejar’s part to communicate why Luque’s songs are so special to him. 

The Line of Best Fit

Performing another artist’s work in a new language sounds like it was freeing and, while Five Spanish Songs is slight in comparison to Kaputt, it’s fun to hear Bejar stretching himself.


Not surprisingly, Luque, a verbose and enigmatic lyricist, is the perfect match for Bejar (they're also both hirsute rock & roll outliers), and the five-track collection requires little in the way of translation
