Maldita Vecindad + The Pinker Tones + Ocote Soul Sounds

  • Recommended

Time Out says

Latin Alternative Music Conference. Vibrant, eclectic, socially engaged and punky, Mexico City’s Maldita Vecindad (“damned neighborhood”) was among the seminal acts of the 1980s alterna-Latino revolution. The brash combo faded from view around the turn of the century, but a newly released studio album, Circular Colectivo, shows the band continuing to break ground while forsaking none of its vintage spirit. Barcelona’s the Pinker Tones star a pair of DJs, but you wouldn’t necessarily guess it upon hearing the band's work, which includes prominent singing by the duo, who occasionally use processed android voices but often croon convincingly, like pop stars.
