Juan C. Marioni and Sebastián Rubin are the main characters in Los Andes, a powerpop band from Argentina. Following up their debut Obras Cumbres (2017) is their new mini-album Backgammonesque. Take that title as highly indicative of Los Andes’ sound: Los Andes are Argentina’s answer to Teenage Fanclub – fans of The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness should also take note. The eight songs on Backgammonesque are strummy, sunny and sugary sweet. The band had me at opener Julie which is a jangly powerpop hit that is as concise as it is effective. From there on out, Backgammonesque is smooth sailing. An easy band to like, Los Andes is!
