Another fine release from our friends at Lion Productions. Miguel y el Comité is a crate-digger’s dream, mixing South American candombe rhythm with beat music in an unusual and aggressive (oft-times funky, break-beat) way. Percussion plays a key role in the band’s sound, although the guitar playing is most distinctive: sometimes melodic, at other times carving a path through the mix, with a hard and acid distorted fuzz guitar sound, as on the title track and the fabulous cover of El Kinto’s ‘Qué me importa.’ Dynamite! Comes with a 28-page booklet, printed on FSCrecycled, chlorine-free, 100% post-consumer fiber paper manufactured using biogas energy, with band history, photos, and bi-lingual lyrics.
