The charmingly cute Spanish indie pop group Papa Topo began in 2008 as the vehicle for the songs of Adrià Arbona Orero. Recording at first directly into his computer microphone and using toy instruments, then posting songs on MySpace, he caught the ear of Elefant recording artist Guille Milkyway of La Casa Azul. After putting together a group to help expand the sound, Orero met up with producer Alberto Lozano in 2009 and recorded a few songs, including the sunny singalong "Oso Panda." Papa Topo soon signed up with Elefant and released a partially re-recorded (by Milkyway) version of "Oso Panda" as their first single. The punk-inspired "La Chica Vampire" was released in 2011, and their mini-LP Rotación y Traslación followed in 2012. ~ Tim Sendra
