The songs on this record were born and developed just after the release of the astonishing Cheesy (2002). They were finally recorded and produced in the fall of 2003 in Etéreo, Schwarz’s own studio in Murcia. With Arty Party, Schwarz has definitely made its best and best sounding album to date.
After the release of the debut album Hard Listening, the trio Schwarz received the offer to join musical taste and enthousiasm with Manta Ray, one of the leading Spanish alternative rockbands. It resulted in the co-production Hept á gono (Astro, 2001). After that, Schwarz made a big leap forward with the release of Cheesy (Astro Discos / Sonic Rendezvous). This album has been released also on the Norwegian, Mexican and German market now.
What is Schwarz? Short description of style: a unique and personal blend of drones, pop songs, space rock, psychedelica, krautrock and guitar wave.
