Seven man Argentine band exiled France. Lagrima plays a leisurely and thoughtful progressive folk with bandoneon with an abundance of traditional wind instruments and on the other (at the same time) traditional pianos, vibraphones, saxes, flute, guitars, bass and synths. Reminds me of some of the folkier moments of Arco Iris, MIA and Rodolfo Mederos y Generacion Cero (Gubitsch also played on one of his albums) Recommended listening!

If you find it, buy it, even if it's only for the gorgeous cover art by Argentinean illustrator and tarot card designer Napo!
