Migala is a Spanish band that plays delicate and old-fashioned instrumental and vocal folk-rock. Diciembre 3am (Acuarela, 1997) and Asi` Duele un Verano (Acuarela, 1998) were the early albums that established them in Spain.

Arde (Arde, 2000 - Subpop, 2001) is the album that introduced them to the audiences abroad. Surreal, noisy interludes (Primer tren de la manana , La noche ) pace tenderly subdued Leonard Cohen-ian elegies (especially Fortune's Show of Our Last and Times of Disaster ), nocturnal, Tom Waits-ian blues dirges like La Espera, and gentle, baroque, Donovan-ian odes like The Guilt. The recital is crowned by the epically waltzing accordion-driven hymn Last Fool Around. These are songs that come from the heart, but played with the humility of a zen monk.
This intriguing attitude also lends an existential depth to the instrumental compositions, whether through the nostalgic guitar theme of the instrumental Primera Parada or through the epic accordion melody of El Caballo Del Malo. The tragic Cuatro Estaciones juxtaposes funereal strings, mediterranean mandolin and accordion, a harpsichord-like renaissance-flavored fugue and dissonant sounds.
