EDITORS’ NOTES

Take a little of George Clinton's psychedelic funk, season with manic rap-metal, and cook it up with a lot of raging hormones, and you've got this wild Buenos Aires outfit. Here they prove their old-school cred by working with Bootsy Collins on the slinky, springy "DJ Droga," and pound some Chili Peppers-style funk metal on "Robot." Lyrically, tracks like "Guerrilla Sexua" and "Apocalipsis Wow!" outline their B-movie world of sex and danger. "Jennifer del Estero" is an R-rated mash note addressed to Jennifer Lopez, who understandably never responded.
