Laura Camacho’s comments on the song: "This cover came up as a personal experiment to re- arrange the song in such a way that is recognizable , while incorporating tango elements such as chicharra, strapata, yumba, exaggerated vibrato in the violin , tempi changes, etc. I was inspired by artists like Mariano Mores and Astor Piazzolla . This is the most eclectic cover I’ve done so far, and I love to extrapolate the dramatic Argentine spirit with the trippy vibe of Will’s vocals, that resemble the original so much. I’m honored to have him in our recording !"
Will Cullen Hart contributing vocals

A few months ago we recorded a segment to the documentary film, Athens Georgia: 30 Years On in which we performed one of our original songs, an Astor Piazzolla song, and a cover of Athens, GA legends, Neutral Milk Hotel. The film is a sequel to the Athens, Georgia documentary Athens GA: Inside/Out. The original film chronicled the music of Athens, GA and featured the bands, REM, B-52's, Pylon, Kilkenny Cats, Flat Duo Jets, Time Toy, the Bar-B-Que Killers, Dreams So Real, and Love Tractor. We are honored to be part of Bill Cody's film and hope people enjoy the performance.
Bill also needs funding to help with his vision for the film. You can donate to his film at the following page:
Very proud to be working with James Preston ( and Taylor Chicoine of Pity Party) to realize his vision for a beautiful documentary on the arts in Athens, GA. Filmed a few songs including a tango by Jay Gonzalez(Drive-By Truckers), and a cover of REM.
Sicyon: Celebrating the Creative Class in the Classic City will be released in the next few months with a premiere at Athens Cine.
