CHIQUITA Y CHATARRA - Ojos de Mirada LP
This LP proves that the band is still alive, a joy for all of us. The lyrics of the songs they have written, all in Spanish except one, "Dream", which is in English, claim to be the result of exploring the content of their dreams. They recorded at Delia Records in January 2017 and have managed to maintain the main essence of the best of the sound of previous works: galloping rhythms, dark resonances like the interior of a cave and a pinch of the joy of American folk. Theirs is still that kind of slowed down surf-garage as they gloat in the reverberations and echoes of their guitars, sometimes establishing lines of connection with the music of Fabuloso Combo Espectro or Terrier. To the usual formula they have added some detail of electronics and synthesizer that only enriches everything. What more could you ask for then?
