Comment: let’s continue to make acquaintance with the discography of the Chilean imprint Pueblo Nuevo. Recently I commented on a quite brand new one, Guerra & Rammsy`s Torque EP from the year of 2016 of which core was concentrated on a house vibe with hints at electro and techno. Francisco Pinto`s magnum opus, 19-track originates from the year of 2008 and is a different case because of apparently loving poppy electronic music and indie evenly. Indeed, it is a sublime drift between shimmery guitars in the vein of dream pop and shoegaze on occasion, acidic keyboards and drum machine-led rigid yet catchy beats. For instance, listen to Metropolis, one of the most catchy composition within the whole. The same could be said about URL. However, the whole album is filled with ditties arousing your senses and sensations. Maldita Marisol is a bold electro pop example with rollicking yet intense synthesizers. El Arco de las Cosas starts off with sublime Cocteau Twins-esque loops and reverberations. In a word, it is a great issue and could freely be used as a visit card to get acquainted with the Chilean indie music. It is not a surprising fact altogether the southern hemisphere of American continent has also been a prolific terrain for new and intriguing guitar-based crossovers for a while.
