Malaysia's Lust certainly takes cues from different sources, but just like the album cover (which seems like an obvious nod to Battles' La Di Da Di), chingichanga is a colourful, offbeat debut, brimming with personality from a band we know little about.
At once conjuring a psychedelic freak out on the appropriately-titled 'Psychokillah', while sorting out freakish melodies all over the first three tracks, smothering them in deranged pop structures, and ending off with a groovy and euphoric closer in 'Clapsong', chingichanga pulls out many surprises throughout its 22-minute runtime.
A heady and rewarding trip, listen to chingichanga in full below:
