Descargas de la Onda (DDLO) have released a sweet, soulful new EP, Sueños de Luna y Mar, which translates to Dreams of Moon and Sea. The four tracks—”El Mundo Fosforescente”, “El Día que Llegó el Payaso”, “El Pulpo y la Luna”, and “Nostalgia Majestuoso”—are surefire tracks that will definitely get you up dancing.
Mixing in traditional Latin sounds with more modern touches, Sueños de Luna y Mar is all Latin all the way. Each of the tracks deliver a unique sound, but all blend together really well. “El Dia que Llego el Payaso” has a really nice Spanish guitar sound that carries this track. “El Pulpo y la Luna” takes things to an eerie world but it is strangely hypnotic and will keep you listening. It’s a bit out of place here, but mysteriously, the track works with the rest of the EP.
If you love Latin music then Sueños de Luna y Mar is definitely an album you need in your collection.
