Very Be Careful "La Furgoneta"
Over the past two or three years, plenty of ink, and even more blog space, has been devoted to documenting the international explosion of cumbia, particularly the electronic and/or experimental variety. Yet not everyone riding the cumbia train is trying to put a modern twist on the classic Colombian rhythm—take Los Angeles quintet Very Be Careful, who actually specialize in vallenato, another Colombian folk rhythm that's something like cumbia's cousin. Labels aside, these boys always keep it old-school, even when they're cooking up original, accordion-powered jams like "La Furgoneta." The track comes from Escape Room, the band's latest album, which will be released on April 13.
