ROLANDO BRUNO: Bailazo: CD

In a surprising shift from their usual noisy blues/garage noise, Voodoo Rhythm has unleashed this fantastic album of Latin Cumbia music. Apparently, Rolando Bruno is in the garage punk band Los Peyotes, so the label connection makes a little more sense, but this is just killer Cumbia with a real psychedelic bent. A real surprise to be sure, but a pleasant one. Anyone with an open mind and any interest at all in psychedelic music will likely love this release from Rolando Bruno. I am looking forward to hearing more because this disc is unbelievably good.
