"One of the better performances I saw at Upstream Music Fest was Tres Leches at the Central Saloon.
The trio composed of Alaia D’Alessandro, Zander Yates, and Ulises Mariscal would tear through a song, then stop, float to different instruments—the guitarist becomes the drummer, the drummer the bassist, etc.—and rip right through the next one. All three swapped yelping vocals and the whole thing took on the fun and frenzy of a game of musical chairs.
Tres Leches started about three years ago and released an EP in 2016, garnering praise from local bands like Spesh and Tacocat, but this year Tres Leches gained momentum. They played Folklife and Upstream on back-to-back weekends, caught mentions in City Arts and The Stranger.
That slippery sense of classification with instruments manifests on the record too. On their EP the band already hopped genres. But on Amorfo they’ve both expanded and refined, clarifying their eclectic influences and the connections between them. Here they invoke the Clash, there Yo La Tengo. Soon they’re clamoring through folk punk like X, and lyrically veering between Spanish and English, and revamping Leadbelly’s children’s song “Ha Ha This-A-Way” as a punk romp, and the back-to-back Folklife and Upstream performances make sense."
