After Chile’s WatchOut! received lots of love with very little exposure for their insanely limited debut album (previously only available on CD and super-ltd lathe cut), the record finally gets a proper vinyl release courtesy of the nice people at Permanent Records. I’m having terrible trouble pinning down exactly what it is they’re doing though...the press release describes it as “the lovechild proof that Os Mutantes and Popol Vuh had an elicit rendezvous in mid ‘70s Santiago”.
What that means for you the listener is a curious mixture of South American tropical rhythms, organ-drenched psychedelic pop and even warm, repetitive raga-influenced pieces like the epic title track. All the tones here are very organic, with droning organ, springy guitar tones and breezily physical, understated drumming, with repetition being a particularly key ingredient in the instrumental numbers. Really intriguing stuff - I hope to hear more from this band in the future!
