Tropical Punk 12'


Slum Dunk Music presents Tropical Punk 12' EP featuring 4 warm & wild dance punk numbers taken from their latest album From A Forest Near You.

The opener Tropical Punk (Mutant edit) comes with a brand new mutant funk re-edit with more percussion, more analog synths, warm drum machines, and a funky bassline.

Yr Daughter Lies is a cosmic, experimental/new wave piece with plenty of old school synths, processed vocals, percussive drum machine & spooky live electronics
flying around in the mix. It marks Tetine's collaboration with L.A. minimalists Howard Amb.

On the B side, Shiva comes as a percussive dance punk number led by a simple groovy bassline & Eliete Mejorado's distinct post-feminist spoken word vocals
set against organic drum beats, dissonant soundscapes, a lost trumpet & some great interplay of raw guitars.

O Espa├žo is a relaxed 6-minute cosmic piece of Brazilian tropical punk funk on the dangers & delights of being lost in the jungle - sang in Portuguese & permeated by a
discordant interplay of ultra-funky guitars, abstract synth-bass plus all sorts of FX & live electronics.
The result is a mid-tempo non-obvious South American cannibalistic disco-pop with catchy lyrics & beautiful half-sang/half-spoken melodies.
