These days it's not the Guatemalan countryside, the scenario changed, and Radio Zumbido found himself traveling between Los Angeles, California and Barcelona, while doing the music for a documentary. Lots of ideas, tapes and field recordings gathered on the way, and the result is this new album called: "pequeño transistor de feria" ("little fair transistor") The sights and sounds of a chaotic city like Los Angeles, where Latin culture seeps carefully but grows strongly into America's old Anglo dream, thanks to a denied mass of immigrants that cross the border illegally every day. All of this mixed with the similar vibe that goes out in Barcelona, where Radio Zumbido has been living the last years, The album was recorded with some analog tape machines and instruments, using fewer samplers, in favor of an accidentally more organic sound. Keys, kalimbas, guitars and different percussion were played live. This album is not a follow up to 'Los Ultimos Dias...', since places and views have been changing, it's the natural evolution of a sound that still has the Radio Zumbido trademark. Definitely a more filmic album!
