New single Available exclusively on Bandcamp!
Peace & Rhythm invites you to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos with Vancouver, Canada’s MNGWA! These pioneers of prog cumbia have crafted a sound all their own. Camino pa' tu Casa, the first of four songs on Crackadoom, comes out just in time for Dia De Los Muertos, capturing the vibe of the season and setting the tone for the musical journey to come.
Keep watch for the full EP coming in December!
“Crackadoom is MNGWA at their rawest and most instinctual. In the midst of a busy stretch of summer festivals, the eight core members of MNGWA carved out a period of 3 days in remote Williams Lake, central British Columbia, where the EP was recorded in its entirety. Vancouver-based veteran sonic alchemist Brandon Hoffman (Blocktreat) engineered and produced this record from the beginning to end (from the comfort of his own cabin), and his idiosyncratic approach to recording challenged MNGWA to set aside the maximalistic sheen of their previous records and embrace imperfection. Hoffman's choice to track the songs without a metronome gives Crackadoom a living, breathing and almost live quality. Crackadoom is MNGWA's most stripped-down and cohesive release yet, where the two worlds of psych rock and cumbia are integrated more than ever. Sung entirely in Spanish, the lyrics allude to topics as wide-ranging as modern political tyranny (plenty to go around!), media and technological mind control, and communing with ancestral spirits.”
