Todas las Malas Amistades (which means “the Bad Close friends) are an indie music group from Colombia whose music incorporates folk instrumentation, indie electronic beats, no-budget keyboards, a lo-fi creation sensibility and influences which range from Colombian folk music to Tropicalia to create punk to pop. Founded in 1994 by several university college students in Bogota, Colombia, the music group produced its full-length recording with La Música de las Malas Amistades (1999), an unbiased release that is clearly a compilation of house recordings from 1994-1999. Many years later, following the bandmembers acquired dispersed, they reunited in Bogota to record their second record, Jardín Interior (2005). The record premiered by the brand new York-based indie label Psych-o-Path Information, which also re-released the band’s debut; on the other hand, it had been released a season later in European countries with the London-based label Honest Jon’s Information. Todas las Malas Amistades eventually released Veranda Bonito in (2007), via Honest Jon’s Information in European countries and independently independent label, Todas las Malas Grabaciones, in Colombia. It had taken the music group another four years to record Maleza, and another half a year to combine it. The record was finally released in the summertime of 2012.
