Amores Perros [Original Soundtrack]

Amores Perros [Original Soundtrack]

by Gustavo Santaolalla



Filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu complements his movie Amores Perros with this mammoth double-disc set that reads like a roll call of late-'90s Latin alternative heroes. The first disc alternates between a compilation of well-known favorites and scored material by Argentine alt-producer par excellence Gustavo Santaolalla; his plaintive, multilayered strains of vibrato guitar, violin, and other strings make for dreamlike, evocative interludes. The compiled highlights: the fearsome, shadowy hip-hop of Control Machete's "Si Señor"; the fried-chicken funk of Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas' infamous ode to rump-shakin', "Coolo"; and Mexico's Banda Espuela de Oro's droll, ska-tinged petition for political power on "Dame el Poder."

The second disc, meanwhile, is devoted to previously unreleased brilliance by Julieta Venegas, Café Tacuba, and others, written specifically for the film. Tacuba's Emmanuel del Real settles into a soft bossa nova with acoustic guitar and strings on "Aviétame," and Julieta digs into some futuristic mood-pop on "Me Van a Matar." Fiebre whip up a torrent of hard-pounding rant-rock with "Tienen el Odio Enjaulado," while Zurdok lend their tuneful psychedelia to "Una Vez Más." Argentina's auteurs of the bizarre, Bersuit weave a sinister web of spiraling organ, accordion, and harmonized guitar on "Perro Amor Explota." For sheer breadth of personnel and style alone, Amores Perros is easily the most significant collective alt-Latin project of 2000.
