Rolando Bruno y su Orquestra Midi "Cumbia Reaction"

(Voodoo Rhythm, 2016) Enchanting cumbia covers of garage rock classics like "Five Years Ahead of My Time" and "The People in Me" by this Argentinian one man orquestra. Not a novelty like the pseudo-lounge cheezy punk covers we heard a few years back, these sound like the kind of orchestrated takes of 60s rock that would be on swinging soundtracks and feels sincere and loving, recognizing unjustly obscure tracks as worthy canon fodder. Five years after it's time this is just hitting streaming services now so those not hip to the 7" can have their own swinging soundtrack!
