In honor of the looming apocalypse I opened the show with “Adios Maldito Mundo” a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Goodbye Cruel World” by today’s featured artist, Helado Negro.

I followed that with another Helado Negro song, “Regresa“, from his new album Canta Lechuza — which is a great example of the rich juxtaposition of the old and new: blips, bleeps, distortion and echoes set against traditional sounding Latin vocals and acoustic instruments all filtered through subdued lo-fi electrostatic.  His label, Asthmatic Kitty, calls it Latin psyche-funk-folk; but truly, you have to hear it to understand.  Check out the video for “Regresa” below.

and you can download CantaLuchuza via his Bandcamp.
