Description

Argentina's Agrupacion Ilegal Los Imparciales makes their triumphant return to Names You Can Trust! This time around the group has set out to record the definitive chicha version of the Beatles' world renown and oft-covered Norwegian Wood composition. An uptempo rambunctious cumbia riff, the instanty recognizable melody is transformed with a smattering of fuzzed out electric guitar and farfisa. The band's playful chorus echos the original's folksy disposition with a much needed frenzy of psychedelic bliss. On the flipside, in a true international collaborative effort, the band's chicha version is slowed down and given a bizarro rock-steady rebajada twist. Featuring drummer extraordinaire Rich Terrana from The Frightnrs and a touch of engineering expertise from NYCT / Daptone fam Victor Axelrod aka Ticklah, this alternate reality dub version imagines what it would have sounded like if the canonized Jamaican version of Norwegian Wood (aka Darker Shade of Black) was influenced from the popular sonidero systems of yesteryear.
