Brownout: Aguilas & Cobras

Listen/Pre-Order Brownout - Aguilas and Cobras


I first saw the members of Brownout when they were performing under their other band identity of Grupo Fantasma at Yoshi's here in San Francisco. Six Degrees and the band share publishing partners and I had consistently heard that they were a "must see" live band from many people who I trust. I was also intrigued by the fact that Prince loved them and often jammed with them. After all, you don't win the admiration of the little purple one unless you can throw down some pretty serious heat. Sure enough, the group delivered the goods and put on a smoking performance of Latin jams. I was particularly impressed with the twin electric guitar attack of members, Adrian Quesada and Beto Martinez who kept sneaking in little flurries of psychedelia into the mix. I left the show very impressed but craving more trippy axe shredding.

So it was that I was immediately interested when I later heard from the group's manager that they were shopping a project that was the band's "hardcore, psychedelic Latin" side project. Basically an alter ego of Grupo that focused more on all that good weird funky stuff that I wanted to hear more of. Brownout's Aguilas & Cobras has enough intertwined guitar textures and authentically sweaty grooves to satisfy even the most hardened funk junkie. I love this record because it reeks of the real deal, original Latin funk vibes of old schoolers like Malo while managing to have a distinctly unique vibe all its own. There's a lot of retro psychedelic funk revivalism going around these days but to my ears, Brownout towers above the fray.

Check out the free "taster" download that we are offering today and mark your calendars for September 15th when the full length will be dropping and blowing minds everywhere.

Extreme heat for sure.

We continue to play the shit outta some Brownout, Grupo Fantasma & the Ocote Soul Sounds project on KRTU in San Antonio. Just like you said, "it reeks of the real deal, original Latin funk vibes of old schoolers like Malo while managing to have a distinctly unique vibe all its own."

I just heard the Chicken George mix as well & I cannot wait for this shit to drop in less than 2 weeks!

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics.
