Peruvian purveyors of naive but charming acid psych, my post of El Alamo comes with the following caveat: there’s a definite Santana edge to some of the cuts here. If thats sufficient to send you scurrying for cover so be it, though you’d be missing out on an otherwise choice slab of psychedelic exotica. A first glance might suggest the that dominant influence at play here is Crosby, Stills and Nash, given that the first track here (“Candy”) is the Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo DOO DOO doo doo doo doo” bit from Suite: Judy Blue Eyes, but thereafter, things take a liquidly acidic turn with the very Traffic Sound-like psychotropic swoon of “Can You See Me”. From there on out it’s a mixed bag of the beautifully tripped and the slight and disposable, the former fortunately outweighing the latter, particularly on the completely fried title track, a pinnacle of South American psych
