From the low key Netherlands based netlable, Rack&Ruin Records’ America Del Sur, Phil Cardona and Taylor Ross,two young kids in highschool from Jacksonville,Florida who decided to start a band bring you folky rocky “white boy Jazzpop” that will not leave your ears unsatisfied in their 2008 self-titled debut. Consisiting of 10 tracks that all flow into eachother ever so nicely, you’ll hardly notice the change of song,America Del Sur takes you into a summertime trance of long bikerides, lemonade and of course some summer romance too.Both Cardona and Ross manage to take their woeful tales and make them sound happy,leaving the listener in a (as I call it) “Wes Anderson”-y mood. Both happy and a little sad.
All in All America Del Sur sure is one of a kind in my eyes. Let’s not forget to mention their Art Rock project Witchporn….but we’ll read about that some other day folks.
