I first heard about El Perro del Mar
through last.fm when I heard her song “Dog
” (you can listen to it for free at last.fm). It’s got this very rhythmic feel that bounces tambourine hand claps with opposite guitar strokes. The song is repetitious lyric wise, but as the words continue, new elements are introduced along the way, which really builds this song up into one of those songs that leaves you breathless when it’s over.
El Perro Del Mar is made up of Swedish singer/songwriter, Sarah Assbring. Her songs provide a variety of different sounds from flutes to organs to loungey do wop vocals, but they all manage to maintain a distinguishable 50’s-style pillow music
