01: The Model – Sonido Gallo Negro
02: Cumbia De Las Plañideras – Sonido Gallo Negro
I do gravitate towards records i know nothing about. On the 1st listen i knew this was a winner with a quirky interpretation of an already quirky track ‘The Model’ by Kraftwerk.
Mexico’s Sonido Gallo Negro returns to Names You Can Trust for another 7-inch release of quintessential cumbias, this time plucked from their latest album, Paganismo. Aside from the original composition and B-side “Cumbia De Las Plañideras,” the standout single selection pays homage to a fitting icon in electronic pioneers Kraftwerk. SGN blends their signature sound of live cumbia rhythms and swelling synthesizers with the instantly recognizable melodies of “The Model.” It’s a perfect match and interpretation of a ubiquitous classic that has reached air waves the world over, now further immortalized in a blissed out cumbia.
