Empanadas Ilegales - "Tobogan"

Photo by Patricio Cartas

Vancouver cumbia psych-rockers Empanadas Ilegales just released a new single off their upcoming album, and if you liked "La Danza Del Vampiro,' you're going to love "Tobogan." This new song is a cover of Los Benfords' "El Tobogan," which was the first salsa song Empanadas Ilegales learned to play. They've added psych-rock elements to make the song sound more like themselves, and the results are infectious. It's a fusion of psychedelic music, salsa, and jazz. It's a smooth and trippy sound that demands the listener dance in some form. If you can sit through all of "Tobogan" and fight the urge to move even a little, you might not have a soul. 

Guitarist and vocalist Ricardo Perez says of his band's latest single:

“We go and go and go, and then we blow your mind.”

You can watch the video for "Tobogan" below. Creepy Mambo: Rooftop Sessions is due out April 12 on We Are Time Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Empanadas Ilegales, check out the band on Instagram and Facebook.
