Smugglin' diasporadical sounds across borders
Astro

Hailing from the high altitudes of Chile, Astro has been making this spacey synth-rock that sounds like the soundtrack if Alice found herself high in the Andes rather than Oz

Their new album "Chicos De La Luz" has many of the playful synths found in their self titled sophomore album "Astro" as well as the drug induced euphoric lyrics found in their first album titled "Le Disc de Astrou."



I feature a few select cuts from "Chicos De La Luz" to demonstrate that you need to own this album and then we continue on with new music by Disco Ruido, Empress Of, Y La Bamba, and Branko from Buraka Son Sistema PLUS two hours of music inspired by the Latin diaspora.
