19-year-old Mexican-American artist Mauri Tapia, frequently known as Los Retros, has been experimenting with music since he was old enough to get his hands on his older brother’s guitar. Today he’s released his latest sonic offering, the incredibly smooth and serene Everlasting consisting of five tracks out now via Stones Throw Records.
Los Retros premiered the project last week with the first single “New Humanity” full of angelic choral echoes and vintage synths. The offering followed last year’s Retrospect EP before Mauri took some time off to craft this record. He stays true to his roots, floating through his influences of Latin American of the 1970s and 80s while throwing in hints of jazz and funk with just enough lingering moments of psychedelia throughout. There’s a vintage warmth on each track that showcases the depth of just how much of a music student Mauri Topia is. His name pays tribute to Chilean pop group Los Ángeles Negros.
