Making Movies' song “Cuna de Vida” - from the band’s brand new album A La Deriva (released March 5 and produced by Steve Berlin) - was recently featured on AOL Spinner. Now, the young Kansas City-based band hits the road for a Spring Tour that winds through parts of the Midwest, south, and west - including a stop at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre for Los Lobos’ Cinco de Mayo Festival.
Good Panamanian acid-jazz-fusion by way of Kansas City can be hard to come by these days. Well, at least there’s Making Movies.On the whole, the prog-Latino quartet’s self-released second album, A La Deriva, is strange South American psychedelia; in moments, it’s overwhelming or simple, radical or routine. Consistent? No.
