The New LoFi

Ten Years

Helado Negro Canta Lechuza

Helado Negro released an amazing follow up to to their 2009 release Awe Owl on Asthmatic Kitty today. The new album Canta Lechuza is a successful example of rich contradiction, juxtaposing the old and new, blips, bleeps, distortion and echoes against traditional sounding latin vocals and acoustic instruments all filtered through a lo-fi electrostatic dream maker machine.

This album is one of the most interesting and mysterious albums I’ve heard in a really long time. Do yourself a favor and check out the songs below, then snatch up the album on bandcamp for $8. It’ll be the best $8 you spend this year.
