Damas Gratis Para Los Pibes (DBN 2003).
Don't be distracted by the anemic synth leads, the repetive guitar skank or lyrics like Laura, your thong is showing. Cumbia villera inventor Pablo Lescano's songwriting skills reveal true pop genius, all deep hooks and street-slang poetry that's often brilliant but never too clever. In a genre dominated by cover versions, Damas Gratis make originality look easy, yet still deliver quick two bar references to classic Colombian cumbias, adding a sip of fine old wine to Lescano's addictively synthetic cocktails.
