Artist: ANTORCHA
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $16.00
“A terrific early 70s Mexican psych-rock album from Antorcha which never saw release in its day. Previously known as Las Antorchas, under that moniker the group played beat and garage rock whereas this album showcases their transformation into a sonically rich and often heavy psych-rock band. Its a guitar-driven record sung in Spanish with lots of fuzz, wah, and some electric 12-string. The album also features some great psychedelic organ sounds and a Latin-flavored beat is occasionally thrown into the mix for good measure. The lyrics sometimes feature anarchist themes among other more typical psychedelic subjects (see: "Grass"). Great stuff and its particularly interesting hearing this back to back with their work as Las Antorchas. Check it out!” - Vam.

Artist: DECIBEL
Title: El Poeta Del Ruido
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $16.00
"Recorded in 1978, the instrumental El Poeta Del Ruido by Decibel could be labeled a prog album but dont expect it to sound anything like Yes! This is more in the spirit of Art Zoyd, Univers Zero, Henry Cow, Faust, and Gong, which is to say, quite experimental, a bit dark, complex, and generally highly-structured (though its also sometimes deliberately disjointed). Classical instruments form an important part of the groups sound, but it is augmented by interesting sound effects and there are extended moments of space-y electronic exploration. Masterfully executed, this album is a compelling listen from beginning to end. Tracks include "El Poeta del Ruido," "Orgón Patafísico," "El Fin de los Dodos," "Manatí," and "El Titosco" and more."

Artist: MOLITOR, REINHOLD
Title: Reinhold
Format: CD
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $19.00
"Official reissue of this ultra-rare album (Discos Zave LPL 163, 1969). Globe-trotting artist Bodo Molitor may have been born in Germany, but hell forever be associated with the psychedelic scene in Mexico and South America. In addition to creating the zoomorphic art for his own bizarre album, Hits Internacionales, he also created the psychedelic art for the Kaleidoscope album, for La Libre Expresion, and for his brother Reinholds solo album. He had this to say about the Reinhold record: My Brother Reinhold came for a visit from Germany where he was playing with several bands. He was only 19. I knew Edghar Zamudio (from Peru) and one day he asked us to record that LP. Just acoustic guitars and a banjo played brilliantly by my brother. I think we recorded the whole album in three or four days. I played some guitars and did some vocals as well. Its folky and bluesy with originals, some covers, and traditional. My brother sings and plays guitar and banjo, on some of the songs he wrote. The Reinhold album is so rare, even with the connection to his more famous artist brother, no one seems to have discovered it, until now. Despite being from the end of the 1960s, Reinhold has more of an early-60s NYC Greenwich Village cafe wha?-ish folk underpinning. The best tracks have gravel-pated vocals in a vaguely Tom Waits/Joseph Spence sort of vein -- really syrupy and quite excellent. Overall, a dark and morose vibe dominates; and we can all use some minor key laments, now and then, right? Limited editions (both formats) of only 500 copies." - Vam

Artist: SIZE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Vam
Country: Mexico
Price: $23.00
"First time ever on LP, heres a collection of this Mexico City synth-pop/postpunk bands best tracks from the early 1980s. Made largely with 80s new wave dance clubs in mind, but with an urgency and directness straight from 70s punk rock plus a measure of postpunk darkness woven into the instrumentation, it comes out a bit like throwing SPIZZENGERY, DEPECHE MODE, CHROME, CABARET VOLTAIRE and FAD GADGET into a blender and turning it on high. About half the tracks are sung in Spanish, the other half in English (which comes off quite well since singer Illy Bleeding lived in Canada for several years previously). This is a very limited pressing of only 300 copies for the world, all on 160 gram red or purple color vinyl, and including a large, 2-sided, full color poster insert with brief liner notes in English and Spanish." -Vam.
