New Sounds: La Mecánica Popular -Noche Triler/ Móntame En La Tormenta

Efrain Rozas

La Mecánica Popular takes to the night for a much-anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed, self-titled album. This special edition single features a natural modification of their signature psychedelic style – a time capsule of 1970s Afro-Peruvian roots gone American Rock and Soul. Noche Triler (Thriller) takes the form of an uptempo instrumental stunner, a unique combination of styles from guaracha and cumbión, and a refreshingly thrilling flip of Michael Jackson’s iconic masterpiece. Already a staple in the band’s live performances, Móntame En La Tormenta (Riders On The Storm) transforms the Doors’ cowboy-jazz road saga into a brilliantly versioned Amazonian cumbia, a beautifully dark and shadowy trip into the heart of la selva. Listen to “Noche Triler (Thriller)” and “Móntame en la Tormenta (Riders on the Storm)”  below. Head over to Bandcamp to purchase the 7-inch vinyl or digital download.
