The hotter-than-hot single by Latinx music collective Barracutanga erupts from the speakers with a super-funky rhythm twisted together with surfy guitar and a baritone sax line that slays with insistence. By the time the rest of the horn section drops in, sweetly and discretely, you’ve got a South-American-influenced dance tune buoyed by tight playing and a slow and slinky approach. What makes this tune radically different—and more listenable—are its lyrics. The tension of the night balanced against the story of a perilous journey into an unknown land speaks volumes about our world out West today.
