Good to jam when: Outdoors
Ocelote Rojo adds mastery to the chillwave genre without the helps of a label and with just about the most grounded influences you can have, the pure marvels of the simplistic nature. The influences are more than evident because they not only shine powerfully throughout his songs, but they also somehow make you feel as if any minute it would be completely normal to see a monkey swing by or a storm begin to brew.
Francisco Aravena, from Santiago, Chile, is the one and only main man behind the spanish name, which in english means red ocelot, a medium-sized wild cat that looks similar to a jaguar that is dispersed mostly throughout the jungles of South America, but can even be found all the way in some parts of Texas. Be sure to check out the new album Pacarina which was just released in March of this year and download a couple of his songs including today's feature for free here. With very little information on this group out there and with such a recent release of an obvious jammable track, jump on the jungle vines quick with this one so you can claim your scrumptious bananas when your friends are still lookin' at the clouds!
