More info about the Argentinian Los Alamos:
In less than one year since their debut album No se menciona la soga en casa del ahorcado (Cuatrereo Records, 2005), Los Alamos has been chosen as the revelatory band of 2005 by the readers and critics alike of Rolling Stone (Argentina). The space-country sound that characterizes the band has awakened laudatory praises in neighboring countries. In August of this year, Los Alamos put out their second cd, Emboscada, an EP of covers and live recordings. Originally, Los Alamos was formed as an instrumental band in 2003 with two guitars and drums. Soon after they began adding more members and the band became tighter and Peter started, first in English and later in Spanish, to write lyrics. Together with the arrival of North American Jonah Schwartz and his mandolin, the current formation was reached and the band turned its musical visions towards country and folk landscapes while maintaining their identity as a rock band. Like this, the music of Los Alamos both spurs and breaks through the local self-dubbed narco-country scene. Soon after self-releasing their debut album No se menciona la soga en casa del ahorcado en October 2005, the band began generating a whirlwind of positive commentaries and enthusiastic followers, culminating with the naming of the group as the Revelatory Band of 2005 by Argentina´s Rolling Stone.
