from DC9

"After 10 years of performing together, 2010 has finally seen Spain's Delorean breaking out in the States, thanks in large part to its ambient, transporting Subiza release, which has seen the band, among other praises, compared to the likes of Animal Collective and Phoenix. And that's fine by the band, which has spent the majority of its year touring American, as part of an attempt to increase its U.S. fanbase.

That's what brought the band to Denton last weekend for a show at Hailey's Club, where, despite pressing sound issues, the band still managed to offer up a phenomenal, lush set. And that's where our friends at WeDentonDoIt caught up with the band -- or, more specifically, band members Guillermo Astrain and Igor Escudeo -- for a charming, heavily accented pre-show chat about the band's influences, hopes and newfound affection for barbecue.
