Four albums in, the meeting of the minds helmed by Antibalas's Martín Perna and Grupo Fantasma's Adrian Quesada have the pattern of their distinctive groove down pat: Interweave Afrobeat, funk, psychedelic rock from all over the Americas and Latin dance for one trippy tapestry. In patches, the weave is tighter than ever; this is a jam band, but one that isn't about losing its head entirely. Still, experimentation's always been a big part of this project, which can result in both highs (Latin psych waltz "Tumba del Pasayo") and maybe a little too high (lite jazzish "Contigo Jamas").
