Animales Blancos (White Animals) is a Bogotá collective that puts Spanish poems to experimental Salsa Erótica, the more sexually frank offshoot of the U.S. friendly version of salsa music, Salsa Romántica. The group maintains a genreless description, but you can hear the soft variation of salsa music growing as layers of distortion and voices build on top of a steady rhythm. It’s a compelling listen, even if you can’t understand what anyone is saying.
“El Aguijón,” off the La Vaca (The Cow) EP, is a mush of Colombian folk, distorted electronic and acoustic sounds, and animal noises. Trust me, it’s actually quite pleasant.
