One of our first originals, this tune is Jeff's nod to psych cumbia ("chicha"). In his words: I woke up one morning with a vision of people in Mexico or Peru having partied all day, eating tasty barbacoa slow-cooked in a hole in the ground, and staggering around completely trashed after the sunset. I knew in a few moments that it was only because I'd watched this very scene in one of those food/travel TV shows the previous night, but I immediately felt Drew's guitar and Kamala's obbligato were perfect for it. This recording of the song is featured in a TV spot for Citibank: youtu.be/KehbjuiNA0g
