Civilizado Como Los Animales is a new release from Catalan artist, Macaco. The title essentially means “Civilized Like Animals.” Dani Macaco’s musical fundamentals are very strong, as is the production. While containing elements of rumba and reggae, the songs are also very avant garde and experimental. Macaco is not afraid to go a little wild and push the envelope in terms of structure and predictability. There’s synth, slick beats and even some spoken word mixed in. No Nos Pararan is one of the more memorable jams for me. It has a catchy intro and some really cool synth sounds I’ve never even heard before. My other favorite track is De Serie which features numerous guest artists and collaborators. It has a Mediterranean quality to it. The album as a whole is a nice blend of traditional and experimental music that hits just the right balance.
