Los Amigos Invisibles The Venezuelan Zinga Son Vol. 1
- Words: Jonathan Zwickel
- Label: Luaka Bop
With an album title that translates to "Venezuelan fuckfest," you know what these guys have on their mind. The six horndogs of Los Amigos Invisibles-a few years older but hardly all grown up-return with their third release on David Byrnes globe-spanning Luaka Bop imprint. This time their trademark sweaty Latin funk is polished silvery smooth by original Nuyoricans Masters At Work, whose production influence shines within the album's glistening keys, snappy boogaloo breaks, and subtle electronic hum. Like a good party, the album teases initially with loungy atmospherics, but by the end of the last track you'll need a cold shower and a slap in the face.
