Experimental Music From Mexico

From Surround:

Since the mid 2000s the avant-garde jazz, electro-acoustic improvisation, sound art, and noise scenes in México have experienced a period of singular creative energy, and 2013 seems to have been the year in which something close to the whole breadth of these scenes was finally registered in documents that do it justice. An undeniable trait of the Mexican experimental scene is its raucous decentralization. Half of the discs in this list were made by musicians who do not live in the nation’s capital: Yair López lives in Puerto Vallarta; Mario Quiroga/Vulgar Disease in Puebla; Miguel Pérez/Wehrmacht Lombardo in Ciudad Juárez; both members of Xtul live in Mérida, and Angélica Castelló has lived in Austria for nearly two decades. Sergio Sánchez/Los Heraldos Negros, Remi Álvarez and the other two members of his trio, as well as the members of Generación Espontánea, Carlos Marks and Muz Muz, live in México City.
