Boomkat Product Review:
The Sublime Frequencies audio colonialism carrack docks into South America, having fully exhausted Asia's musical resources. The focus of this latest compilation is Latin America's psychedelic rock and pop music, mainly from the '60s and '70s. The tracks have been collected from a host of lost and discarded LPs sourced from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile and Isle De Pascua (Easter Island) and vary wildly in style and genre, at times sounding rather folksy and traditional while at others coming across as downright loopy, shifting from organ drones to kitsch exotica, with a helping of tropicalia influenced pop thrown into the bargain. While the disc manages to maintain a unified, mixtape type sound, the sources are fairly disparate, with recordings of children's songs following on from loungey jazz LP excerpts. Inevitably it's the more obscure material that proves the most compelling: take for example Los Hermanos Bustus who come up with an uplifting, accordion-based Chilean oompah jaunt or the funky Hank Marvin manoeuvres of Peruvian instrumentalists Los Destellos. Some more great 'discoveries' here from the Sublime Frequencies gang, who've come up with a tantalising first volume to a series that's bound to run and run. ESSENTIAL PURCHASE.
