Buscabulla
"Kitsune
"
mp3

"Debut EP ""Kitsuné"" by Puerto Rico/Brooklyn band Buscabulla (Spanish slang for 'troublemaker'), is one of the most beautiful and intriguing records to catch our ears in quite some time. In its four tracks, the band effortlessly blends electro, industrial, world music and dream/pop into a very enjoyable final product. Opening track ""Caer"" alternates gritty guitar loops with liquid synths, while singer Raquel Berrios' voice charms and soothes with minimal pop melodies sung in Spanish, but that seem to bear some kind of Japanese influence. Metelé is a more traditional electronic, atmospheric ballad reminiscent of Air but still dominated by an Eastern sounding melody, while ""Temporal"" - the most experimental track in the EP - blends the clanging of a mechanical loop with what sounds like a synchopated, finger piano sample, while distorted guitars swells drive the song through its tension and release cycles. Final track ""Sono"" - one of the strongest on the record - recycles an idyllic, 60s sounding flute sample and surrounds it with a funky drum pattern and all sorts of distorted and percussive sounds - all very organic sounding - while Raquel indulges in a simple melody that seems inspired by nursery rhymes. Buscabulla's ""Kitsuné,"" with its incredible array of ethnic influences filtered through a Western musical lens, represents as close as it gets how today's NYC music should sound."

FOR LOCAL ARTISTS


Sign Up to enter The Deli's Charts HERE (free)

The Deli Charts (see example on the left column) are a database of artists organized by region, genre and, of course, popularity.

Rather than just a popularity contest, our charts are thought as a service to allow bands, live show promoters and also music fans to find new promising acts. In this DIY musical era, the Deli's Charts provide an easy and fun way for emerging artists to find like-minded bands to network with.

Unlike similar charts implemented by other websites, The Deli's ones are extremely reliable in terms of rankings, which are calculated using data from the outside world - not internal artist profile counting. Also, they include not only subscribers but also bigger acts, therefore reflecting the local scenes in its entirety. - Sign Up here.
