Wake me up when it’s done….

This weeks wee morsel from the show is a cover of Jean Jacque Perrey and Gershon Kingsley’s classic ballon-du-fromage ‘Popcorn’ by new school operatives dealing in old school vibes, Chicha Libre. Originally chicha is sufferers music from deepest darkest Peru (and surrounds) that takes a little bit of surfy psychedelic twang, and whacks it on top of a shuffling cumbia beat to sizzling effect. ‘The Roots Of Chicha’ was one of 07’s utterly essential discoveries, and I’ve subsequently managed to track down a few other bits and pieces that only increase the fascination, but this modern take is so meticulously done and beautifully produced, it avoids the pitfalls that so often plague these kinds of projects. There’s going to be a full chicha post soon, but in the meantime check this, and give some serious thought to investing in ‘Sonido Amazonico’, it’s a stunner (NZ readers can find it at Marbecks).
(Buy) from the label direct, we love that, go on…
