MIXTAPE: Grant from The Myrrors Picks His Favorite Latin Psych

Slammin' Latin PsychA good while ago I asked Grant, guitar player with Arizona ethno-psychedelic band The Myrrors, to pick his favorite psych music from South America, which I then put together into a downloadable mix.

I did up a version for 8tracks and it’s proven to be a bit of a hit with 450 listens so far, so thought I’d share it here as well.

The mix covers a heap of terrain from classic ’70s rock to tribal instrumental pieces to more contemporary music and includes music from well-known artists as well as some that are pretty obscure. Grant says:

“I threw this together to hip Beige to some Latin American stuff. There’s definitely some range here, from psyched-out Cumbias to Gato’s wailing sax to Pan Del Indio’s drone meditations.

“Another modern group that wasn’t included (but should have been) is O+yn (Omasin) from Argentina.”
