Listening to an album that is presently blowing my mind. If you have a chance, take a listen to Y La Bamba’s newest album “Court the Storm, ” which is featured on NPR Music’s First Listen page.
The band embraces traditional Mexican roots in combination with lyrical indie-folk orchestration. Y La Bamba manages to create a new brand of cultural-indie-folk that is exciting, whimsical and absolutely beautiful. When you think the album is going to take you in one direction, you are turned around to something completely unexpected. Y La Bamba balances harmonious voices with complex orchestration to create tracks that ring full choruses in your earbuds. This album is beautiful and dynamic, unique and surprising – a delightful listen.
