Album Review
Reviewed 2023-03-20
Incredible ambient cumbia compositions from Colombian Nicolás Vallejo, recorded in isolation in a DIY studio and later mixed/mastered with the help of Daniel Lofredo Rota, who runs the top-notch +ambién cassette label out of Quito, Ecuador. Inspired by self-introspection, misty nature recordings, and Vallenato Columbian folk music (and aided by YouTube meditation videos). All tracks are awesome, but start with 8, 2, 7, or 10.

RIYL: Quixosis, Nicola Cruz, Lagartijeando, Zoroxxe

1. Wandering, ghostly layers of panpipes and a slow-building beat
*2. Deep and resonating with echoed flutes and vocal snippets
3. Chugging half speed cumbia
4. Chopped and screwed accordion/acoustic guitar. Nice sunny swell at the song’s end
5. Free-fall ambient with heavily distorted washed-out vocals
6. Peaceful midtempo with steady drums and synth
*7. Vaporwave-tinged cumbia with slow-mo vocal samples and a distinctly retro feel. Brings Macintosh Plus and Ferraro to mind
*8. Rumbly “eléctrica selvática” (jungle electronic) music. A gyrating cumbia beat with bird calls and other animal shenanigans. Really awesome dense sound
9. Misty fuzzed-out ambient with bleary flutes and subtle percussion
*10. Beautiful ambient swells with foundsounds and watery percussion
