The Pinker Tones, The Million Colour Revolution
2006 | Label: Nacional Records

A multi-colored cornucopia of funk, salsa, electropop and R&B, The Pinker Tones 'Million Color Revolution is giddy and irresistible. Drawing on the same kind of cross-cultural grab bag aesthetic as Cornershop, the Tones fuse skittering dance rhythms to acid-washed guitars and mantra-like refrains to create dance music that is global in scope. "Beyond Nostalgia", with it's twittering pipes and burbling organ recalls Tropicalia at is most relaxed while the low-end thump and high-end moans of… read more »

Like listening to a Gaudi

Barcelona has always been known for its art, and the Pinker Tones represent well. This album is pure fun from end to end.

any style and every bit of fun

Whatever style of music you like, The Pinker Tones is that style. I found them first on iTunes (yes, the competition!) but then found eMusic and completed my album here, as well as downloading all their other albums.

So much fun!

"Sonido Total" and "Love Tape" are good tastes, but you really want the whole thing.

I have been obsessed with this album since I downloaded it 5 days ago. It is the definition of both fun and eclectic. Not only do the band members have excellent compositional skills, they both also have fantastic voices (as evidenced on the blissfully White Album-esque "Pink Freud.") Clips of this album do it no justice - listen to it in full for a ride with fun at every turn.

...they were written up in the *New York Times* (August 6, 2006) in a story about the new music coming out of Barcelona--see also Ojos de Brujo, Macaco, Muchachito Bombo Infierno. There's a fun set of clip on the NYT's website if you want to hear mroe than 30 seconds... visca barcelona!

Most Fun I've Heard In A While

TheFarmer1

Dispell any notions about lounge exotica being simply a novetly music genre. The Pinker Tones are the real deal. Elements of junk, jazz, country, Nortec influenced beats, Midnight Vulture's era Beck vocals. These guys are just way too much fun to ignore. "In Pea We Nuts" is probably the standout track in my mind, but the whole album is worth it. Check it out. Enjoy!

They Say All Music Guide

Barcelona-based duo the Pinker Tones have apparently never met a style of music they don’t like. Their second full-length album, The Million Colour Revolution, is even more wide-ranging than 2004′s The BCN Connection. Rather like a more world music-influenced version of Saint Etienne’s Foxbase Alpha or Pizzicato Five’s mid-’90s work, The Million Colour Revolution is based in club-oriented dance music, but it layers in elements of indie pop, bossa nova, European film soundtracks from the ’60s, various countries’ folk musics, and influences yet more unexpected. For example, the weirdly insistent “Gone Go On” has the warped beat and loopy vocal style of the Residents, while the jaunty “Pinkerland Becaina” sounds like the instrumental bed for an as-yet-unfinished Leon Redbone tune and “Maybe Next Saturday” recalls the Normal and other minimalist British synth rockers of the early new wave era. Hugely entertaining, and much more cohesive than the laundry list of influences would suggest, The Million Colour Revolution is both a giddy giggle and an appealing piece of electronic dance-pop. – Stewart Mason
