Los Amparito, a band from Guadalajara, is also the name of a sandwich thats sold on a particular ally there. Los Amparito is led by Carlos Pesina who’s creating wonderfully layers of synth over Spanish guitar. The song “Dicen” feels like hot wind blown in your face from a drive down the freeway (for us in southern California, to Mexico). The guitars maintain the distance from focusing on the song too much, and vocals act as a soft reminder that yes, you are actually listening to something. Although Los Amparito has plenty of songs via SoundCloud, there has yet to be an EP or LP available. Despite the simplicity of “Dicen”, more of their songs have deeper cultural roots too. For example, check out the video for “4500 millones de años de soledad” [45 million years of solitude] featuring home movies as well as civil and military footage. I personally don’t come across a lot of indie-electro-folk music from hispanic artists (not looking hard enough), but Los Amparito pulls it together beautifully. Hopeful for a debut LP soon.
