Yesterday we featured new music from L.A. so only fair we check in on N.Y. and listen in on some more new indie latin music—specifically Latin-psych music that seems to have resurged lately. This new group out of N.Y., Combo Chimbita has my interest with this tropical-punk sound rooted in traditional Colombian rhythms. This is one of the more chill tunes, while the rest of the album goes even further into a psyched out frenzy. Let us know if you’re feeling this new wave.
Remember those old movies where the square middle-aged dude reluctantly attends a party of young far-out non-conformists who get him high AF, minutes later dude is life of the party and doing crazy shit like painting a baby elephant, which then segues into the scene where he’s suddenly alone with the chic who was eyeing him earlier on? Straight from Lima, Los Pakines wrote the song for that scene just as everything goes kaleidoscope.
