Psych Folk from Argentina’s Los Animales Superforros

By 17 September, 2011

Los Animales Superforros played at SESC Pompeia in Sao Paulo yesterday, supporting Cerebro Eletronico. They are clearly a band on the rise. Their music recalls Animal Collective with dashings of Fleet Foxes and Divididos, evoking the vast regions of Argentina and even incorporating elements of Andino and other traditional Argentine music.

Their current plan is to release a number of EPs, of which Coplas is the latest. Yet their most recent album was a set of 10 tracks for children, called Monona en la Calesita written for Proyecto Monona in Buenos Aires and which, although more basic in nature and exploring simpler melodies, has just as much allure as their “adult” material. [If you get the chance you should also check out Proyecto Monona itself – lots of great handmade goods and other items]
