Taken from last year's album Injustica, New York fusionists Peliroja wear their influences on their collective sleeve. Afrobeat, rare and NY Latin funk and Cuban roots all get mixed up. With a tightness and authenticity in delivery, the only thing that separates this from the originals is the recording quality. "Situaciones" nods neatly at the Heliocentrics-style of contrast as Ethiopian instrumentation melts into big Cuban chorus and heel-clicking horn refrains. "Ciudad De Nadie" is more of an upbeat funk work-out with a carnivalesque motifs on the dynamic builds. Cause a situation today.
