Matias Aguayo - 'The Visitor'

A synth-blarting weird-world-party manifesto

Matias Aguayo - 'The Visitor'

Album Info

  • Release Date: June 24, 2013
  • Label: Comeme
8 / 10 2009’s ‘Ay Ay Ay’ revealed Chilean/German maverick Matias Aguayo as an adorably odd fish, bubbling through a psychedelic swamp of South American cumbia, proto-dance music, tropicália and post-punk’s odder corners. His profile raised further by ‘Ice Cream’, his collaboration with kindred freaks Battles, ‘The Visitor’ really stakes a claim. Right from the silly, scary opener ‘RRRR’, it’s daft, hypnotic, erotic, evil and unhinged all at once. ‘El Sucu Tucu’ blows rasperries and shakes its bits wildly in your face, and the romping ‘Una Fiesta Diferente’ provides a synth-blarting weird-world-party manifesto.
