Chicago group Dos Santos have an excellent approach, working with South American styles like cumbia and caminante and working them in with touches of psychedelia and tightly textural post-rock. Really it's a rich and forward-looking sound that makes all the combinations sound entirely natural. Logos is released by International Anthem.

8/10 Robin Staff review, 13 June 2018

Blending the Colombian dance sound of Cumbia with a frenetic and well-calibrated post-rock, Dos Santos will offer shades of recognition before departing for an entirely different sound. On “Arc Bame”, the opener to their new record ‘Logos’, their tapping rhythms mix with the kind of sleep-then-wake guitars of Tortoise; on “C rdvda”, their half-pace prog goes from sounding like Ariel M to half-built party tune. If ever a band fit into International Anthem’s mission statement -- to defy traditional, nationalistic boundaries set in place by the music industry -- it’s Dos Santos, who take two sounds and make them sound like one.

It flows, and how. I want to go back to “Arc Bame” again, because this song enacts new understandings on its listener: at first it might sound clunky, its two parts stitched together but coming apart. As it goes on, it sounds invigorating, moreish, the organ synth and bass riff bringing together the song’s constituent parts like thread. The record’s pace is unfamiliar but it becomes an integral part of Dos Santos efforts building songs: the record’s title track seems slow, at first, but its use of horns, psychedelic guitar distortion and hand drumming makes for a track of bluster and bombast. Whether you’re into post-rock, improvised jamming or danceable rock music, this record is a winner.
