Rock: Inmigrantes, El Cuarteto de Nos

Two latin rock tracks for the young and trendy!

Inmigrantes - Golpe de Suerte - Turistas en el Paraiso - Argentina Latin Rock
Inmigrantes consists of twin brothers Carlos and Pablo Silberberg, Argentinean youngsters who have been playing music together since they were 11 years old. They have a lot of live experience, playing in the (huge) bar scene of Buenos Aires, but "Golpe de Suerte" is their very first single. Energetic and enthusiastic are the first words that come to mind, with that catchy bass riff opening the song. What follows is flawless guitar/drum interaction, revealing the boys' talent. Maybe their voices lack some maturity, but their youthful spontaneity is very contagious indeed!

El Cuarteto De Nos - Ya No Se Que Hacer Conmigo -  Raro - Uruguay Latin Rock
The always interesting Crisol de Musicas put me on to El Cuarteto De Nos, a latin rock band from Uruguay that's been around for 27 years already. Guitarists Roberto and Ricardo Musso are brothers - get the link with Inmigrantes? ;)
"Ya No Sé Que Hacer Conmigo" is the latest example of their complexless funrock: witty lyrics are alternately supported by a southern-sounding acoustic guitar and tearing distortion. They rock like 20-year olds, only the theme of the song (changes in life) gives away their true age. And the way they still try to rhyme every sentence is just priceless. Be sure to check out the very 'designer' video too (below)!
