New Music: Los Alamos, Perrosky, Leo Quinteros, Tladic & Stefanovski

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

I can't remember how I first heard about Los Alamos - maybe I heard a
track on the Radio when they came over - but I have been looking for their
album for some time.  When I emailed them asking if it was for sale here
(they're Argentinan) they pointed me to http://www.armonica.cl and about a
week back I clicked through their site picking out some goodies, which
arrived today (you select online then they send someone round with the CDs
and you pay).

Here's some notes after a quick first listen:

Los Alamos - No se menciona la soga en casa del ahorcado (don't mention
the rope in the house of the hanged man).  The vocals seem a bit lost in
the mix - I think this will sound better with headphones - but this has a
great steel guitar sound.  Got better as I listened to more of the album. 
Really want to listen to this again.

Perrosky - El ritmo y la Calle.  Much more variety than Los Alamos, and
better production (I think), but heading in a similar direction.  An
attempt to make blues "relevant", I guess.  A very long disc.  I imagine
there'll be some tracks on here I end up loving (and also some that are
not so good).  Interesting.  Looking forwards to tomorrow when I have more
time.

Leo Quinteros - Ahora!  Hmmm.  Maybe a bit slicker than "1A" and without a
killer track like "Inundandonos".  I suspect this will grow on me (as the
rest of 1A did), but I'm not in that much of a hurry to try.  I suspect
listening more carefully to the lyrics might help.  Judgement reserved on
this one.

Also, a bonus CD that we found in the car we just bought (don't ask):
Kruschevo.  Excellent guitar playing.  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00000IJG3

PD Just started up Perrosky again on the headphones (got it ripped). 
Sweeet... :o)
