A terrific early '70s Mexican psych-rock album from Antorcha which never saw release in its day. Previously known as Las Antorchas, under that moniker the group played beat and garage rock whereas this album showcases their transformation into a sonically rich and often heavy psych-rock band. It's a guitar-driven record sung in Spanish with lots of fuzz, wah, and some electric 12-string. The album also features some great psychedelic organ sounds and a Latin-flavored beat is occasionally thrown into the mix for good measure. The lyrics sometimes feature anarchist themes among other more typical psychedelic subjects (see: "Grass"). Great stuff and it's particularly interesting hearing this back to back with their work as Las Antorchas. Check it out!
