Third Chilean band of the day on the BYM Records vs Sacred Bones Furnace stage and a third approach to psychedelic music. Drawing considerably from the Seattle grunge scene, Spacemen 3 and Madchester music of the late eighties and nineties, Chicos De Nazca, a band that includes members of Föllakzoid, La Hell Gang and Delta 21, play a lovely series of languid songs that both honour and transcend these influences; and remind me to some extent of the Psychic Ills; particularly in terms of the way the band delivers the tunes.
Live they played a great set that was both alive and meditative with their layers of guitar and repetition which I found to be both visceral and beguiling. Playing on a sparsely lit stage with some great projections gave the whole set an etherial quality which enhanced the whole experience and gave it a really psychedelic edge.
