Domestic reissue of Chilean group's debut LP.  WatchOut! is the lovechild proof that Os Mutantes and Popol Vuh had an elicit rendezvous in mid-70s Santiago.  This group blends krauty synth textures with a Tropicalian style not so successfully crafted since the 70s.  Latin rhythms, fuzzy, wah-wah guitar leads, and melodic organ patterns are sewn sweetly together to create a quilt of psychedelic pop that would comfort even the coldest Brazilian psych aficionado.  Their "Flashbacker" LP was one of the best unheard records of 2011.  It's seven tracks of 60s Brazilian psych, 70s German hypnotism, 80s UK fuzz pop, and Indian raga influenced jams are seemlessly and brilliantly woven together.
