Born in 2012 on the west side of Buenos Aires, Agrupación Ilegal Los Imparciales is a mix of traditional cumbia, Peruvian chicha and instrumental psychedelia. A full live act and often transcendental experience, the group utilizes the classic instrumentation of electric bass, electric guitar, farfisa organ and percussion - an homage to older times, without the crutch of electronic sounds and samples. It's a new generation of young and accomplished musicians bringing forward the sounds of a lost era and aesthetic, so relevant in today's modern music landscape. Already with two studio albums under their belt and a third on its way, it's high time the group is poised for a worldwide release sampler at the hands of Names You Can Trust.

The gods are Cabo Verdian astronauts and they are ready to wash the dance floor with your tears of joy!
Everything about this record is UNBELIEVABLE - these tunes groove HARD, the melodies will stay long in the ear (if you understand Portuguese, the lyrics are super great), and these musicians RIP on their instruments like there's no tomorrow.
Get this gem of a release, it fucking rules. Cosmographer

Why do you love this album? Well, it is the quality of ALL the Analog Africa releases , the astonishing presentation- artwork, AWESOME booklets, the mastering, the music first of all and the feeling you connect with it and the artists involved. Due to not earning enough I changed from vinyl to CDs, but I am glad for the high quality downloads of the vinyl only releases that you are able to burn to disc. Together with a chosen few others AA is a greater than great label. Period. Markus Bader
