From the NYC Submissions: Altopalo plays Radio Bushwick on 07.16

The cyber world which we inherently occupy has developed a uniqe quality of randomness. Something that has continued to quantify into an amalgamation of genres, styles and information in general.  Brooklyn-based, Altopalo, is a perfect example of this.  Their debut single, "Picchu Machu", is a wonderful experiment of genre-mashing; the song is incredibly hard to explain, yet exists in an oddly familiar world.  Listening to "Picchu Machu" feels like riding a pogo stick through RnB vocals over down-tempo, house beats with breakdowns that border on ambience.  Most impressive is that they're a live band, combining live drums and guitar with samples and synths providing a surreal analog vs. digital landscape.  You can catch them live this Wednesday July 16 at Radio Bushwick. - Jake Saunders
