Six Degrees Releases Brownout Tomorrow
|Todd "Limon" Wolfson|
|Latin Funk-Rock Revival: Brownout|
While nueva cumbia continues to enrapture hipsters in SF (and everywhere), the progressive arm of contemporary Latin music doesn't begin and end there. Case in point: Brownout's Aguilas and Cobras, a new project by members of Grupo Fantasma and Ocote Soul Sounds, which flips the script with funky, electric Latin fusion with a psychedelic rock tinge. The album officially drops tomorrow on SF's Six Degrees Records, and the record release party happens Friday Sept. 18 at the Elbo Room. A free download of "Olvidalo" is here and a video for "Slinky" is here.
