Mexican Pshychedelic Music, Vol 7 (2003)
Y seguimos con las colaboraciones:
Aqui un compilado de esta serie de Música Psicodélica y lo que se le parezca, esta ocasión es el turno de México.
Throning in the center of the track list is La Revolución de Emiliano Zapata’s eight-minute piece “En Medio de la Lluvia,” a stunning progressive psychedelic song that integrates traditional Mexican elements in a way that almost announces the flamenco-prog of Carmen (Fandangos in Space came out a couple years later). Another highlight is La Fachada de Piedra’s “Roaming,” a song that steals a bit from the guitar riff and groove of Jimi Hendrix’s “Highway Child,” and throws it in the Santana blender. Grupo Ciruela’s singer tries too hard to emulate The Jefferson Airplane’s Marty Balin, but their song, “Nada Nos Detendra,” works out nicely nonetheless. La Vida’s heavy “Touch Me,” and Nahuatl’s acoustic camp song “Volvere” (judiciously used as the album closer) are also worth note. The other tracks are a bit more generic, but still make for an enjoyable album that can be taken as a springboard for further discovery (which will imply costly internet hunting), or more simply, as a self-contained introduction.
