Best of 2016 Pick 2

Dos Santos Anti-Beat Orquesta: Dos Santos (Self-released, 2015)

A rocking cumbia explosión out of Chicago.  Strong rhythm section, great guitar work and tones and you get the space organ for free.  Some tasty Carlos Santana-esque guitar shredding on the second tune, Los Discipulos.

Great records have not much to do with money.  They have to do with a group of musicians catching a vibe and making an interesting record.  Here is an example of a small tearing it up — these guys deserve ears and attention.  All you hipsters out there who are supposed to be open minded and hip and interesting should see how these guys roll.
