2018 Countdown | La Pingo's Orquestra

Ropeadope Sur continues their selection of the finest progressive albums from Central and South America with the new release from La Pingo’s Orquestra. Their first album, Peregrino, was selected as one of the top albums of 2017 by the editorial board at Bandcamp, and now the band brings us Musica para Domar Monstruos, a complex interweaving of current and past elements of the Mexican Cosmovision. It started when the great Steve Albini offered to visit Mexico and record the band; the title means ‘Music To Tame Monsters’ , and the intent is to dominate the monsters that hover in the mind of the human being. On the cover is the photograph of the aquatic animal known by the ancient inhabitants as Axolotl (Water Monster) that lives in the lakes of Mexico and is currently in danger of extinction.
