We’re pleased to announce the upcoming release of our new album El Mirador!
In the summer of 2021, we reunited in Tucson and began writing and recording tracks at our keyboardist Sergio Mendoza’s home studio. It felt so good to play and write music in person again. For our band members and friends that couldn’t record in Tucson, we sent tracks around the globe — from the States to Mexico, Spain, Germany and Italy — giving the album a special spark. The final results made their way to Portland, OR, where our friend Tucker Martine mixed the majority of what came to be El Mirador.
We’re releasing the title track today, which is a slow cumbia about transformation and finding one’s way back home to their heart. It features Gaby Moreno on backing vocals, Tom Hagerman of Devotchka on solo violin & strings, and Stefana Alessandro on electric guitar, banjo and lap steel.
The album is available to be pre-ordered now on a variety of formats — there’s a mixture vinyl variants, CD, and digital options. You can also pre-save the album on your preferred streaming service.
Much of the new album was inspired by the enthusiasm and energy we feel at our live shows. We can’t wait to be touring again soon. We will be performing these new songs on tour this April and May in Europe and the UK. Tickets for all upcoming shows are on sale now!
Welcome to El Mirador, please dive on in.
