New Music: Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra's 'Last Odyssey'
Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra's 'Last Odyssey'
There's something geographically astounding about aCosta Mesa
-based record label putting putting out a band fromFrance
who specializes in the fiery polyrhythms ofEthio
funk. That's pretty much the situation when it comes toUbiquity Record's
latest signee,Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra
. Aside from packing every almost every awesome musical adjective they could muster into one band name, ALVO is equally adept at the kind of rhythmic alchemy that fits more flavors of the world into one one song than most bands could do in an entire album. Having already heard their debut Ubiquity releaseLast Odyssey
(released today), we can say that those in need of hot, sticky percussion and jam band virtuosity from half way around the globe have enough conga-fied goodness here to keep them satiated for a while.
