Los Siquicos Litoraleños - Medianos Éxitos Subtropicales Vol. 2: El Relincho Del Tiempo

HMRLP008

Vinyl LP & Digital

Los Siquicos Litoraleños invite you to take a leap into their world in which the sounds of the future and the past blur into one, where the music of the whole planet is digested and spat out in new shapes, where the noise is joyful.

The unique and magical sound of Los Siquicos Litoraleños (The Psychics of El Litoral), fermented in the rural north of Argentina, land of gauchos (Argentine cowboys), mate tea,  chamamé folk music and Psilocybe Cubensis. In this remote region, cut off from the fashions of the city, Los Siquicos were able to nurture their obsessions, hone their craft, and develop a singular style that takes the traditional chamamé folk music of rural Argentina, then throws it in a blender with Latin-American cumbia and chicha, the tropicalia of Os Mutantes and Tom Ze, the free music of Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart, The Residents, UFO conspiracies, radical philosophy, and a strong dose of the absurd.

 

Out in the hinterlands, they fully embraced the spirit and ethic of DIY punk, gaining a reputation for wild, open air shows on the backs of flatbed trucks, or from makeshift set-ups in village squares and at local fêtes and fairs, where confused locals half recognise the twisted sound of a chamamé  beamed in from another planet.

...a unique triumph of homegrown rural psychedelia, standing alone on the edge of an unchartered vanguard….Los Siquicos Litoraleños are the contemporary group you keep hoping exist, but can never find. If you were to reach for spiritual comparisons, you wouldn't be forgetting the most spirited moments from Sun City Girls, Butthole Surfers, Faust, Os Mutantes, Captain Beefheart or The Residents.”  Mark Gergis, (Forced Exposure)


Riotously odd psychedelic gloop from Corrientes, Argentina. The instigators of Chipadelia, Los Siquicos Litoraleños (The Psychics of Litoral) have their collective third eye wide open.”  Stewart Smith (The List)
"These guys are wonky enough to make The Meridian Brothers look like The Everly Brothers -my advice is to get to know them straight away
."  Tristan Bath (The Quietus)
