Los twang! marvels - guitars in orbit

No wait, don't let us enter the jungle yet. Before the band ventures into the aural underbrush they erect with their percussion thickets and guitar rhizomes, they reside on the coast, enjoying the Surf Rock extravaganza on the first two tunes: the mighty Sea Of Glory merges Alex Anthony Faide’s distantly sitar-evoking acid-coated lead melody with gorgeous polyphonies in the right moments and sees Bisfer’s rapidly firing saltwater hi-hats gyrating around Tom’s bass billows, whereas Kaha Huna (The Goddess Of Surfing) exchanges the cinematography of the opener with guitar licks that are as warped as they are sun-fueled, uniting the saccharine 60’s vibe with the rougher post-millennial edges in favor of the former amicability. Somos Los Twang! Marvels puts Yolanda into the spotlight, a position she is used to in the band’s legendary live performances, but not necessarily on their album material. Here, she sings the lyrics in Chilean Spanish and remains encapsulated in both gorgeously malleable-elasticized power saw-resembling guitar shards from another world and the well-known dualism of benignancy and coolness, making this artifact the clearest -ship anthem of friendship, comradeship and partnership. Up next are two highlights for vintage Exotica fans, as they are renditions of classic material.
