Pacha Massive All Good Things
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Nacional
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
After last year's slightly poppy, upbeat single "Don't Let Go," Pacha Massive has turned their debut album into something rather special. The NYC-based team of multi-instrumentalist/producer Nova and vocalist/bassist Maya relies on a pastiche of sliced, nicely punctuated beats and a host of folksy guitars and flutes. Recalling an older Aterciopelados, Maya's voice is more R&B-smooth than Andrea Echeverri's, though it is equally tempered by soulful inquisitiveness. Sung in rapid flourishes of Spanglish and exquisitely produced, All Good Things indicates that many good things are to come from this boogie-down Dominican/Colombian team.
