Money Chicha - The Mexican / Enfermera 7"
Peace & Rhythm and Estereo are proud to release a special 70gr. edition two track 7” 45 from renowned Austin, Texas psychedelic cumbia band, Money Chicha (featuring members of Grupo Fantasma and Brownout). Side A is a highly danceable chichadelic instrumental version of the breakbeat classic, Babe Ruth's “The Mexican”, cut live in the studio at Lechehouse. Trippy guitar and organ float atop swaths of tropical rhythm and deep bass. The iconic Spaghetti Western cowboy surf riffs are epic and come to an ecstatic crescendo, shimmering notes border-hopping through an imaginary southwestern Mexican-American desert by way of the Amazon. Side B, “Enfermera” (Nurse), is a thrilling and gritty cover version of the lesser-known 1970s cumbia beat track by Peru’s Los Ilusionistas with urgent vocals by the multi-talented Alex Chávez of Chicago’s alt-Latinx band Dos Santos. Two classic tunes covered with a fresh, invigorating take on the tropical psychedelia of 1970s Peru.
NOTE: Due to a small pressing fault, there is a slight dishwarp to side A that does not affect play at all - but we are selling remaining stock at $2.00 off the regular 10.00 price to offset this minor issue.
