The songs released so far by Castellon’s Lia Pamina have been marked by, on the one hand, the influences of female voices like Claudine Longet, Astrud Gilberto and Françoise Hardy, and on the other hand, collaborations with important song-writers and producers who have dressed her songs and lyrics. That’s what happened on her debut single with Robbie Leff (Johnny Winter, Alice Cooper, THE CRABS), Roger Gunnarson (PUSHY PARENTS, THE GARLANDS) and Le Prix (PUSHY PARENTS, Kylie Minogue, Sally Shapiro). Her first full-length is sponsored by one of our most-loved names currently on Elefant Records’ roster: Joe Moore (THE YEARNING).

Lia Pamina’s voice and Joe Moore’s songs seem like they were destined to find each other. The sweetness and freshness of the former, and the imagination and fantasy of the latter, all poured into the evocation of a certain sound - music from the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s - where we follow them as they visit some of their favorite names, on an album that seems like it was conceived as a journey. Though this album is really conceived as a tribute to love. But let’s take this step by step. Or, better yet, song by song.

“Better Off Without You” begins with the trademark details, so close to other groups that work within the same parameters, like THE SCHOOL and CAMERA OBSCURA: an effective melody, a catchy chorus, and an exquisite result. “Walking Away” is one of the songs that most clearly has Joe Moore’s mark on it: the clavichord, the elegant touches of folk, the romantic halo of a song that the label “chamber pop” doesn’t even come close to describing. “The Boy I Used To Know” seems like it was made to be a part of the “The Umbrella’s Of Cherbourg” soundtrack. “Para Los Dos” surprises us in Spanish; it’s a delicious duo with Carlos René (musician and producer for AXOLOTES MEXICANOS and SAN FRANCISCO), to a bossa beat, evoking that marvelous trio that came together in La Fusa: Vinicius de Moraes, Maria Creuza and Toquinho. “Love” clears everything up: somewhere between THE LEFT BANKE and HARPERS BIZARRE, with love as the undisputed star, as the axis around which any and all motivation that each and every note on the album carries. With a trajectory like this, THE RONETTES and Phil Spector couldn’t be left out, but this time they do it directly, with a magnificent cover of their appetizing “Keep On Dancing”.

“Sycamore Tree” opens the B-side with a trip to the hallucinogenic world that THE BEACH BOYS and BROADCAST inhabit - marvelous, epic, exciting. Someone needs to write a musical dissertation about that bridge and the pizzicato. And all this in barely two minutes. Which is a bit longer than “Ghost”, evocative, like Lynsey De Paul’s most melancholy moments. “Party In The Night” is one of the fruits of the collaboration with the previously mentioned Robbie Leff, whose touches can still be found on this full-length with this delicious song that could have been a part of Françoise Hardy’s album, “La Question”. “Créeme” is an incredible LOS ANGELES cover, as if Jeanette herself had made it her own. Listening to the song and breaking into pieces are one and the same. “Talking To Myself” appeals to intimacy and includes, finally, Joe Moore on vocals. As if it were Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood. And the thing is, this duo could undoubtedly be one of the biggest stories for lovers of those collaborations. The album comes to a close luminously with “Love Is Enough”, which moves forward with a delicate but multi-color echo of soul, and which gives the album its name and reinforces the album’s main idea.

This album is made with sensitivity, doing justice to a title that appeals to love as the driving force and as the inspiration for delicous songs. Joe Moore and Lia Pamina. What amazing news.

Track Name: Better Off Without You
Everybody tells me I should stay away from you
"Look around your life and you will find somebody new"
It's been a year of going nowhere and stumbling in the dark
It's time I made my mind up, baby, and listened to my heart

And I know right now
And I know deep down
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you

Maybe we should end it, baby?
Maybe we stay friends?
'Cause something tells me it's too broken
For time to ever mend
It's been a year of going nowhere and stumbling in the dark
It's time I made my mind up, baby, and listened to my heart

And I know right now
And I know deep down
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
Track Name: Walking Away
I won't ask for roses
I can live through pain
I won't ask for anything else but to hold you once again
With you I've fed my hunger
With you I've freed my soul
The troubles I have carried around - I have left them all behind

The narrow streets of false denial
A jealous mind of hopeful dreams
The darkened hall of untold feelings
I'm walking away from these

The storm is almost over
The battles I have won
Looking back I can't forget the words that I have sung

The narrow streets of false denial
A jealous mind of hopeful dreams
The darkened hall of untold feelings
I'm walking away from these

I won't ask for roses
I can live through pain
I won't ask for anything else but to hold you once again

The narrow streets of false denial
A jealous mind of hopeful dreams
The darkened hall of untold feelings
I'm walking away from these
Track Name: The Boy I Used To Know
Where's the boy I used to know
The one who said, he loved me so?
That gentle touch, where did it go?
Now all I see is you

Where's the boy who held my hand
And when I cried would understand?
A glowing life, we had it planned
Now all I see is you

Where's the boy I used to love
Singing to the stars above?
In his place, a man I barely recognise anymore

Where's the boy I used to love
Singing to the stars above?
In his place, a man I barely recognise anymore

Where's the boy I used to know
The one who said, he loved me so?
That gentle touch, where did it go?
Now all I see is you
Track Name: Para Los Dos
Llegó, llegó el invierno
El frío al despertar
La nieve a tu portal
Y ella no está

Después, de la tormenta
La calma volverá
Las cosas volverán
A su lugar

Deja que rompa con tu soledad
Las heridas sanarán

Si tú, si tú te acercas
Las penas dormirán
La luna brillará
Para los dos

Deja que rompa con tu soledad
Las heridas sanarán

Si tú, si tú te acercas
Las penas dormirán
La luna brillará
Para los dos
Track Name: Love
Love is like a spinning carousel
Takes you for a ride unparalleled
But it's over far too soon and then
You pick yourself back up again

Love is like a floating leaf in fall
Riding high with not a care at all
But before you know you've hit the ground
It ends this way, so I have found

Was love ever meant to be like this?
Just a fleeting night, a stolen kiss?
But if the game's supposed to be this way
I'd rather not even play

Love is like a pretty flower in bloom
Radiant colours from the light in June
But the cold arrives and then it dies
And then it's time for the goodbyes

Was love ever meant to be like this?
Just a fleeting night, a stolen kiss?
But if the game's supposed to be this way
I'd rather not even play
I'd rather not even play
Track Name: Keep On Dancing
Little girl you know that I've been watching you
Trying hard to catch my baby's eye
Since the party started you've been after him
And I can see you want to steal my guy
And it's kind of fun to watch you try

So keep on dancing little girl
Keep on dancing little girl
'Round and around now little girl
Keep on dancing little girl
You're only wasting time, he's all mine
He loves me, keep on dancing, little girl

You think you're going to take his love away from me
Just because you dance the way you do
Don't you see he hasn't even looked your way
So you can try until the night is through
But baby he's not going home with you

So keep on dancing little girl
Keep on dancing little girl
'Round and around now little girl
Keep on dancing little girl
You're only wasting time, he's all mine
He loves me, keep on dancing, little girl
Keep on dancing, little girl
Keep on dancing, little girl
Keep on dancing, little girl
Track Name: Sycamore Tree
I'm going down to the Sycamore tree
I bet you won't be far behind me
Follow me down to the Sycamore tree
Oh baby that's where you will find me

Shh, don't make a sound
It's our secret we have found
Let's go down to the Sycamore tree
Where there's nobody else around

Take me down to the Sycamore tree
I want to feel your arms around me
Kiss me under the Sycamore tree
I want to feel your love surround me

Shh, don't make a sound
Let's keep both feet on the ground
Let's go down to the Sycamore tree
Where there's nobody else around
Track Name: Ghost
I see your face there before me
Like a shadow of my past
A ghost of yesterday
I feel your arms wrap around me
Like a shawl across my shoulders
The colours turn to grey
And I wonder where you are?

I hear your voice all around me
Like an echo in my mind
A song from yesterday
I see your smile in the window
Like a permanent reminder
A love that slipped away
And I wonder where you are?
Where you are?
Where you are?
Where you are?
Track Name: Party In The Night
Put a shell necklace ‘round my neck
The one you made
While I lay on my bed
With closed eyes
Dreaming about a party in the night

Looking at your smiling eyes
White lace straps
On my shoulders, that wait
For your hands
Dreaming about a party in the night

We lit a bonfire on the sand
There’s no one there
And we know that we have
Love to share
Dreaming about a party in the night
Track Name: Créeme
Son palabras nada más
Nada más te puedo dar
Yo quisiera que me comprendieras
Créeme, no llores más
Yo te quiero de verdad
Son palabras pero son sinceras

Cuando estoy muy sola me imagino
Tantas cosas bellas para ti
Pero cuando siento tu mirada
Ya no encuentro nada que decir

Créeme, no llores más
Yo te quiero de verdad
Son palabras, pero son sinceras

Cuando estoy muy sola me imagino
Tantas cosas bellas para ti
Pero cuando siento tu mirada
Ya no encuentro nada que decir

Son palabras nada más
Nada más te puedo dar
Yo quisiera que me comprendieras
Track Name: Talking To Myself
I wish I could stop the way I'm feeling
But it's hard when I see you every day
My lonely heart's in need of healing
But I know my imagination's standing in the way

In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight
And I'm telling you of dreams that never end
But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten
I'm just talking to myself, again

I wish I could pull myself together
'Cause I think I'm going crazy over you
I can't go on like this forever
But I know no one makes me act the way you do

In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight
And I'm telling you of dreams that never end
But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten
I'm just talking to myself, again

In my mind, we go dancing in the moonlight
And I'm telling you of dreams that never end
But I only realize it when I stop and count to ten
I'm just talking to myself, again
I'm just talking to myself, again
Track Name: Love Is Enough
When I go to sleep at night
Wish you were here to hold me tight
But I'll see you soon I know
Your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow

When you leave to say goodbye
I feel a tear forming in my eye
I don't want to let you go
But your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow

Your love is enough to keep me hanging on
Your love is enough to help me hold on and be strong

Even though you're far away
And the hours turn into days
Even though I miss you so
Your love is enough to help me keep on 'til tomorrow
