Mexicans with Guns' Tetris-like track flirts with digital cumbia, but characteristically teeters, threatening to shapeshift into some kind of deconstructionist booty bass mushroom cloud. Marquitos Garcia aka Chico Mann is its leveling factor, his lullaby voice a breeze in the chaos, like he's wandering aimlessly, gaze reaching skyward. We'll ask Garcia about all of this when the Chico Mann band guest DJs our show at East Village Radio May 14, but until then, you should cop the "Me Gusto" 12-inch, out now on Friends of Friends.
