Various – America Invertida

Various Artists
América Invertida
Label: Vampi Soul
Catalog Number: VAMPI 205
Released: 2019, 80's
Stream:

A brilliant, slightly under the radar, new compilation of Urugauyan 80’s new wave pop, fusion, ambient folk and electronics, compiled by Spanish DJ and collector Javi Bayo. Similar in approach to Music from Memory’s critically-acclaimed Outro Tempo, América Invertida explores the more experimental side of Uruguay’s underground music scene in the 80’s where traditional Candombe & Latin American instruments and melodies met drum machines and synthesizers. There’s a timeless quality to the music and listening through you might wonder how these songs have gone largely unheard outside of Uruguay for so long… Thankfully, we have record diggers like Javi Bayo to unearth these hidden gems and bring new life to a lost scene. One of our favorite records of 2019, highly recommended!

Available to listen/purchase at Munster Records.
