Wolf People - “Fain” album mini-mix
Teaser of the new Wolf People album “Fain”, released 29 April 2013 on Jagjaguwar.
Throughout Fain - the band’s second album - folk melodies meet visceral fuzz-rock, never sounding quite like anyone else specifically, but a unique blend that never coalesced at the time. Led Zeppelin weren’t miles away, but their folk tendencies were more of a detour from the pursuit of swaggering rock & roll stardom. Wolf People take both routes in equal measure, counting influences from the psychedelic Mighty Baby to the delicate tones of Fairport Convention. The Quietus

Meridian Brothers - Guaracha U.F.O (Versión Rebajada)
The best album I’ve listened to this year is by Bogota’s Meridian Brothers.
Straddling the line between new and old, Meridian Brothers’ mischievous blend of Latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves is the creation of Eblis Álvarez, one of the key figures of the experimental music scene in Bogota.
