Compilation Week – El Sonido Del Río Hablador (Vol​.​1)

El Sonido Del Río Hablador (Vol​.​1) is a twenty track compilation of Peruvian indiepop recordings from 2000-2009 which is well worth investigating. Some of these tracks are pretty raw, some are too bloody twee and some may not even meet the purists idea of what indiepop actually is.

However, the further we head into the track listing the quality gets better and there is much to enjoy such as the Field Mice inspired Moon Over Soho, Numen’s excellent Losing You, Ambarina’s dreamy Tambourine and the instrumental Noodles At Bingo’s by Callahan. Highlight for me though is Agnes dice by Subterráneos which goes from a lovely girl group inspired song into thrashing fuzzy guitars in the space of just over two minutes.

It would be good to hear bands who are currently around in Lima and the rest of Peru. So here’s to volume two! El Sonido Del Río Hablador (Vol​.​1) is available on CD or digital formats. Get it from the label Impermeable Records.
