So, you’re at the beach reading Winter in Madrid.

Here’s a CD that would fit the mood. It’s called “Picnic,” and it’s by the Spanish band Cineplexx.

Don’t let the summery feel of this pop tune fool you.

The title is “Picnic Without Me.” Cineplexx frequently juxtaposes a bouncy beat with melancholy lyrics. One critic calls the new album “perfect for that surreal Sunday in the park.”

Cineplexx frontman Sebastien Litmanovich is orginally from Argentina. He now lives in Barcelona.

Litmanovich remembers the soundtrack of his youth. It was a combination of punk and disco. He loved them both.

Now that he’s a musician, Sebastien Litmanovich sees nothing wrong with making a sunny day seem just a little cloudy.
