If only somebody out there was combining the sounds of latin and jazz with the ferociousness of metal into one musical vehicle ... but wait! It's Rodrigo y Gabriela! Their new album Area 52 arrives on Jan. 24 on ATO Records and includes the new song "Juan Loco." If this song can't get your day going, nothing can.
"For 'Juan Loco,' we decided to get Carles Benavent to play the bass as well as he did on 11:11 because it felt like he could just change the rhythm in terms of the bass line, in terms of making it a little bit less latin and more kind of his way - you know, which could be jazzy, could be more flamenco based style or whatever. And it goes well with the guitars because it's a very hyper-active track in terms of playability and he suits perfectly for these kinds of tracks," said Rodrigo.
