I think I was high when I first ran across Fantasmas because I got it in my head that they were Peruvian for some strange reason. There is some early No Wave-y Sonic Youth tang to their work, mixed with some blues chops, so I thought, "Cool, some rando Peruvian indie band." But looking at their Facebook, they’re from Brooklyn, so eff that.

Maybe I thought they were Peruvian because their song "La Maga" has some Latino flavor, some Spanish language? I don’t know, homie. We’re all so multi culti these days — who knows where the hell they’re from.

The new S/T Fantasmas 7" sounds tight, so check it out. Not sure if it’s available hard copy, but you can definitely pick up the digital version at Bandcamp & find out more at Fuzzbook and the Tweeter. Peace!
