Mariachi El Bronx: II
Buy! - (ATO)
Mariachi El Bronx is the mariachi side-project of LA hardcore-punk band The Bronx with a now-expanded lineup including Vincent Hidalgo (son of Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo). Their second album is a shockingly gorgeous, beautifully executed set of original mariachi songs combining the rhythmic acoustic guitars, blaring horns, swelling strings and various Latin percussion of mariachi with Matt Caughthran’s plaintive vocals and heartfelt lyrics. 8/5/2011 - Don Yates
