Threads* sub_ʇxǝʇ Curatorial Presents: Early Labyrinth
Capas de ritmo: Subversive pop songs from Latin America, Volume I.
Early Labyrinth presents a small collection of Spanish-language songs from Latin America which touch on social issues, whether through overtly political lyrics or more obscured messages hidden in Cuban rhythms, merengue beats, funk riffs, or 80s pop music. For non-Spanish speakers most of the songs sound like Caribbean party music (which they also often are), but lyrically they contain further socio-political layers beyond the much more typical topics of longing and heartbreak.
[Early Labyrinth is a Berlin-based band, thematically punk, sonically elsewhere.]
