For more than 20 years Eblis Alvarez (Meridian Brothers), Mario Galeano (Frente Cumbiero, Ondatropica) and Pedro Ojeda (Romperayo, Sidestepper) have been exposed to latinamerican tropical types of music that for many years (and still these days) have been relegated to the last place of good taste. Vallenato, peruvian chicha, colombian raspa, champeta, some african sounds and cumbia in its different genres (sabanera, rabajada, sonidera) make part of the new style that Los Pirañas expose in the agitated Colombian music scene. Their debut album "Toma Tu Jabón Kapax" is deliberately strident and still, you can easily dance to it. In 2013 they released the 7“ single "Salvemos Nuestro Folclor“ and a video directed by artists Mateo Rivano and Santiago Mora. Their second LP "La Diversión Que Hacía Falta En Mi País" was recorded in June 2014 in collaboration with Quantic (Will Hollland) recording on analogue tape and mixed live. listen on soundcloud

Out now: Brigitte Fontaine meets monsieuRdurand on a split 7"
Cougouyou Music is proud to present on a limited 7" single Brigitte Fontaine’s masterpiece "Lettre À Monsieur Le Chef De Gare De La Tour De Carol", originally released on her legendary album "Comme À La Radio" in 1969. Fontaine is NOT an artist from Perpignan/Catalonia, but this beautiful track about the station master of the train station Latour-de-Carol, 1200 meters high in the Pyrenees, is emblematic for this region in the South of France. Nothing is known about concrete music composer monsieuRdurand. Based in Perpignan, Durand presents two compositions and two surprises based on field recordings and found sounds. listen on soundcloud
