Cumbia My Lord, Matias Aguayo.

Cumbia My Lord, Matias Aguayo.

Having recently reawakened our senses to his idiosyncratic take on hysterical Cumbia commotion, Chilean mainstay Matias Aguayo preludes the now imminent arrival of his landmark third LP The Visitor with another sprightly burst of ineffably hyper brilliance in the form of Levantate Diegors. Recently ditching his once hallmark minimal dance energies in favour of, well, stuffing his so-called ‘songs’ with as much carnivalesque vibrancy as is metaphysically possible, there’s a highly improvised feel to his latest endeavour – one which assumes the incantatory vibes of Brazilian Embolada and imbues them with a voodoo euphoria equivalently capable of incurring arm-aloft hedonism and sinister introspection as it shuffles almost whimsically between the spirited and the sinister. Although however it may well be perceived at any one point, it proves consummately produced throughout.

The Visitor is anticipated June 24th via Cómeme, ahead of a date at Plastic People June 27th.
