Federico Durand - La Linterna Magica
From El estanque esmeralda on Spekk. Bandcamp
For this album, I used different kinds of instruments, but I wanted to keep music very simple: little melodies and cassette tapes, some of them from 30 years ago that I found lying on the streets of my city, Buenos Aires. I hope you will enjoy this wander to the Emerald Pond.

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.
