Gauchito Gil contra Colo Colo
"Here is another odd but amazing compilation album from the Los Emes Del Oso netlabel. This one features music from Chile and Argentina. Unlike the previously featured Ulqutushuy which collected folk music from Peru and Bolivia, Gauchito Gil contra Colocolo has a hodgepodge of different styles and sounds from tradition to progressive rock to noise to rap to just plain strange. The tracks range from a harmonic folk gem titled “No Hay Choristas” to a weird Bauhaus influenced “Wendy Carlos” by Onda Bidon. There is also some interesting street-side rap by Manueljgrotesque and a garage rock track titled “Old Man” by Kellies. The album is a grab bag of sounds which is the way I like my compilations. Again the sound is inconsistent ranging from OK to field recording passable. Yet you are not going to hear very many collections like this anywhere else."
