If some 5 years ago, the wave of Chilean pop led by Javiera Mena, Gepe and Alex Anwandter was all the rage, the hype surrounding that so-called scene has quieted a little. Not that any of those artists has stopped making quality music.
But the Southern country's indie scene has many other surprises, as evidenced by the new compilation NMC: Pop de Guitarras en Chile.
Showcasing 14 bands from the Chilean underground, this document of the "new Chilean music" (NMC) shows a vibrant scene, led by names like Patio Solar, Trementina and Paracaidistas.
