Los Ecos :: La Fuga Del Bandido

A mesmerizing slice of psychedelia from Peru, Los Ecos’ “La Fuga Del Bandido” appropriately brims with menace and simmering heat. The track’s dance music origins are vaguely hinted at in its percussive introduction, though that quickly gives way to a bed of organ and an assuming, yet knowing, Spaghetti western-inflected guitar. The band turns it up with ascending flute, slinky percussion, and a baroque downtempo organ waltz, before setting off into an alien synthscape, finding our bandit escaping more than just the law . . .
