Las Malas Amistades

Las Malas Amistades hail from Columbia. The group of art students, who prior to their recordings didn't really consider themselves musicians, have created music that is urgent and completely unrestrained. Their method is simple: write a song, record it and never mess with it again. The melodies are basic but have a sense of humor about them; not really joking but not completely serious. The arsenal above best speaks for how the record sounds. Four stringed guitars, casios and thrift shop finds butt up against each other in tape-experiment-folk-disco-fusion. The songs are snapshots. They are ideas; moments captured under glass and put on display. The audio accompaniment of visual art. Their last record Jardín Interior was recorded in Bogata and put out via Psych-o-path records. Apparently they are preparing more material for release later this year.

Hey Kristen. The 3x7" is out of print but the CD is stil available if you look around. You can get it as an import from Honest Jons: http://www.honestjons.com/label.php?pid=28203&LabelID=14815

Or it looks like there are some used copies on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000GPIF2E/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1248291579&sr=8-2&condition=all
