Alan Parsons records Buenos Aires alternative rock band Vaqueros Paganos in a single day, from tracking to a mix, in a purpose-built live studio at BA’s Universidad Nacional de Lanús.
Buenos Aires alternative / grunge band Vaqueros Paganos grew out of a collaboration between musicians and singers Diego Pagan and Clara V with tone-bending keyboard player Perry, Coco on bass and violin, and Bocking on drums.
Their intriguing influences range from Sonny & Cher and Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood to Nirvana and Alice in Chains (via Leonardo Favio, obviously).
Their evocative lo-fi sound blends acoustic folk attitude and male and female vocals with electronic and ambient textures.
