Mondo Dromo Solipsismo Review




South America is on fire these days, there doesn’t seem a day goes by without some kick-ass band playing kick-ass grooves makes it away onto the music littered desk of
Desert Psychlist. Grooves coming from places like
Chile.
Brazil,
Peru and others are becoming as anticipated as those from the
USA and
European big hitters
Greece and
Sweden.

The latest band from
South America to assail
Desert Psychlist’s senses with their gnarly refrains is
Mondo Dromo, a quartet from
Buenos Aires, Argentina courtesy of their new EP ”
Solipsimo“(
Venado Records).

For those not familiar with listening to music coming from the
South American continent. or any other non-
English speaking nation/continent for that matter, the secret is not to translate every syllable via some internet translator but to allow the melodies and general flow of the vocals to wash over you as if you were listening to another instrument. This works especially well with the vocal deliveries on ”
Solipsismo“, where the gritty tonal qualities of vocalist/guitarist
Andrés Gargiulo are slightly buried within the mix allowing the immense stoner/psych grooves, which are the bands stock-in -trade, to dominate proceedings. Having said this those tonal qualities remain an integral component in
Mondo Dromo’s overall sonic attack.

Musically
Mondo Dromo are a tour-de-force of gnarly fuzzed riffage and hard driving rhythms enhanced by scorching guitar solo’s and psychedelic arpeggios.
Gargiulo and second guitarist
Francisco Badano lay down swathes of fuzz soaked guitar driven hard by
Sebastián Romani’s powerful percussion and
Martín Tarifeño’s bone rattling bass lines, all coloured by
Gargiulo’s powerful gritty/clean vocals.

The EP consists of four songs, ”
Aquas Negras“, a raucous mix of hard rock bluster and stoner/psych grit, ”
Solipsismo“, a hard driven acid laced rocker with a deliciously addictive groove, ”
Lava” a riff fuelled romp though desert territory on a Kyuss shaped camel and ”
Broken“, a nicely paced bluesy barnstormer that on its way to it’s droning conclusion takes in elements of space, psych and blistering hard rock.

If you don’t speak
Spanish but like your grooves molten hot with a touch of heavy psych colouring and an element of dusty desert swagger then ”
Solipsismo” is an EP that you should hear, it could open a whole new world to you.

Check it out …..
