You should listen to Go-Neko! because…Argentinos know their krautrock.

We can always trust the tastemakers at Argentine record label Discos Laptra to share some great tunes with us. The La Plata-based label is home to some of the country’s best new rock groups such as El Mató a un Policía Motorizado, Niño Elefante, Mi Pequeña Muerta, and, the subject of this blogpost, Go-Neko!

Go-Neko! is a music group from Buenos Aires with an affinity for beer, futbol, Maradona, and ping-pong that also happens to make great instrumental rock music à la Krautrock. Their latest is a tale of the fight against Los Malos De Verdad, which concludes with their latest two-song release, “Muerte A La Máquina Fantasma.” The epic, world-shattering conclusion can be downloaded free at the band’s Web site or listen to it below.
