Looking for a way out of the valley of white bread, Coldplay are talking up their next album as “Hispanic themed,” which Spanish-speaking people everywhere should be pre-offended by. “No maracas or castanets but a vibrancy and colourfulness that owes much to the atmosphere of Buenos Aires and Barcelona,” the band posted on its Web site. Glad you could soak up a little color while lounging with the locals, Chris. Working with Brian Eno, weirdly idealizing foreign lands, hopped-up do-gooder shtick–all that’s left is a ritual blood sacrifice to Bono himself.
