Mañana – the label founded by Gotan Project's Eduardo Makaroff – should be given some kind of award for its packaging alone: this compilation of contemporary tango opens up into an atmospheric 3D illustration of startling complexity.

From bar-room rowdy to heartachingly lyrical it's effectively a best-of introduction to the label's output so far. There are tunes by Melingo, Di Giusto and Makaroff, among others, which are by turns edgy, classy, steeped in tradition and elegantly modern.
