The dry winds streak across the landscape of the Pampas, as the gaucho rides forth towards the sunset on his faithful caballo, guitar strapped to his back. That is the atmosphere of this great album of spacey South American folk-tinged spaghetti western rock.
Favorite track: El Viento Y La Luz.
Where to begin with this?! Imagine a tribal Shaman writing the soundtrack to an imaginary spaghetti Western movie. Take a left from that, and keep on going. Once you see the little cactus button, eat it, and head towards the Sun.
Favorite track: Todo Lo Que Brilla.

A dense and mantric sound spits from Familia de Lobos, their first album, recorded in early 2016. A sound formed by the mix of valve amps and pre-columbian instruments, from the southern region of Latin America.
Throughout its sound is easy to perceive the influence of 70's rock/psychedelia going along with the sounds of 'bombo legüero', 'caja bagualera', ‘quenas', ‘zampoñas', 'palo de lluvia' and other aboriginal instruments, assembled over a thick synth atmosphere, contributing modernity and spatiality.
From their lyrics and aesthetic, Familia de Lobos intends to restore the bond between the human being, the earth and the living forms in it; the re-connection of himself and his most primitive emotions, sharing and restoring in that way, the spiritual world of the original people from south american, in the context of modern life.

Entrance is a beautiful opener. Nana literally has a sitar solo at the end which is insane... Nothing more needs to be said. Majupose has a sick bassline and it's in 7/4 which is cool, and Dripping Sun is a sonic experience that speeds up and down through multiple time signatures. This album is definitely the chillest thing they've released so far. Also the first vinyl I've bought on Bandcamp :)
CRAZY PSYCHEDELIC ALBUM!!! naakz
