Colombia-originating four-piece delves into ancient cosmology via psych-rock and synthesizers

On Ahomale, Combo Chimbita's second full-length (and first for Anti-), the New York-via-Colombia quartet explores mythology and cosmology. Singer Carolina Oliveros inhabits the role of the album's protagonist, Ahomale (a Yoruba term meaning adorer of ancestors), who hands down wisdom from of old. The record is a search for spirituality that's both modern and ancient — a duality reflected in the music, with traditional percussion instruments like the guacharaca finding a home next to synthesizers and psych-rock guitars. (Safe bet)
