The creative inspiration for last release “Mil Mascaras” comes from growing up in 1970’s Monterrey, Mexico.
Hot summer Saturdays were spent sitting in the middle seat, next to dad, in his blue Impala headed to see movies like “Santo Contra las Momias” at the Rio 70 theater downtown. On special occasions, Sunday evenings were spent cruising to the Coliseo to experience Lucha Libre.
For their 9th release and to the surprise of some fans, the group takes a danceable detour into Funk and Afro Beat. The rhythms and lyrics pay soulful homage to 1970’s pop culture from both sides of the border with enough appeal for millennials and Gen Xers alike. But, those of us with enough salt in our pepper will be reminded of how it felt to look out the windshield of Starsky and Hutch’s ’75 Gran Torino looking for Huggy Bear on the streets of LA , or how the Tias all looked with their Farah Fawcett feathered hair. Maybe we’ll remember what it was like for our 11-year-old selves to roam the streets on our bikes, just being kids, or arguing with our cousins over who’s turn it was to try to break Stretch Armstrong.
“Mil Mascaras” is a well-blended mix of nostalgia and modern appeal. It won’t be out in 8 track anytime soon, but look for it on all digital platforms.
