Rock: Fobia

Next sunday, The Rolling Stones will rock Mexico City. Nothing spectacular, but it came to my attention that Mexican rock band Fobia will be opening the concert. Fobia was very popular in the nineties, and after a decade of silence they recently released a new album (Rosa Venus) produced by Gordon Raphael (The Strokes). Single "Dos Corazones" is conquering radio waves in South America now, but I'm still not sure if I like it or not. Fobia wants to sound very much like modern British rock bands, though they're not very good at that. On the other hand, the chorus is quite catchy, and the video is great (showing the true meaning of the line "Two hearts are beating inside me").
Sadly the album is very hard to acquire outside of Latin America, good luck finding a copy!
