Album: Helado Negro, Canta Lechuza (Asthmatic Kitty)

The impeccably hip credentials of HN's Roberto Carlos Lange (exotic Ecuador to Florida to Brooklyn background; he's an artist doing a "project"; album recorded in the middle of a field in Connecticut, etc) are rather at odds with the wonderfully gloopy Latin-cheese of this Spanish language, old school synth-session's best tracks.

Opener "Globitos" is a catchy piece of somnambulistic ear candy. On "20 Dia" he croons like Bryan Ferry. Download them now for a retro summer.
