RostbiF Releases A New EP – Listen To It Online For Free!

RostbiF (Mauricio Rode, Guido Quintela, Lukas Künzler and Pablo Gonzalez) with Andrés Gorlo.

My good friends from RostbiF have just issued a new EP. It is named “La Última Palabra” [The Last Word], and you can listen to its five songs for free here. You can also download the songs to your computer, bring them to any party you go and impress everybody with your knowledge of Uruguayan music. I don’t know if that will make you a big hit with the women at the party (let’s face, it probably won’t), but at least you will be singled out as the one with exotic tastes. That is always a good start…

This is the tracklist:

1- Derrumbe
2- Camino
3- Alice In Cocaineland
4- Paloma
5- Uniformes

This time around I wrote the lyrics to the song “Uniformes” [Uniforms] – I based it on a draft guitarist/vocalist Lukas Kunzer sent me. I have wanted to pen a song with that name ever since I listened to Ken Stringfellow’s song by the same name. And the Birdman has got a (terrific) song that is named like that, too. It is featured on the album “All The Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes”.

These are the full lyrics to the song (a part was not used on the final recording):


Dentro y fuera de la pantalla
Gente que lucha sin dar batalla
A todos ellos les faltan agallas
Y a este mundo le falta valor

Pronto conocerán mi pena
Quedarse callado fue mi condena
Aliviando solo penas ajenas
Buscando matices donde no hay color

Y llega la noche
Y llega un derroche
De emociones

No aceptaré tu derrota
No derramé hasta la última gota
De mi sangre sobre las más remotas
Heridas de tu integridad

Para que me digas que la vida
Más visible es la escondida
En las cosas que son parecidas
Al mantener su alteridad

Y llega la noche
Y llega un derroche
De emociones

Y llega la noche
Y llega un reproche
De sinrazones
