September 30, 2009

this is another follow-up post, of sorts. side b of discos tormento’s new comp, wow 2009, features many of the artists from may’s “la super cumbia futurista” post. i am currently mourning the impending denouement of nacotheque and will be on hand for the final hurrah featuring pint-sized powerhouse amandititita on oct.. 24th, but there is something in the hipster electropop of side a that has never appealed to me. i’ll stick to the warm and familiar minimal tropical vibes of side b for now. (thanks claire! and @djrupture for the heads up).

speaking of amandititita though, this is an amazing and informative article about the current state of women in cumbia. thanks, juan data (and monika’s fabulous google reader)! by contrast, this is an annoying blurb featuring so-called girly girl cumbia from the often reliable generation bass. having a dude introduce you to music because he thinks you’d be into that girly shit is a definite dealbreaker.
