Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2017-04-25 
American-born (and raised in the Bay Area) Argentina-based and hard to describe. Part rock en espanol, part playful folk with a hint of cumbia. He’s got an easy-going style and his music is fun and engaging. So, so good. His voice can be either light and swinging or deep and sexy. Some in English, some in Spanish, some in both lots of puns and wordplay but no FCCs.
*1. Relaxed and dishy retro duet.
*2. Midtempo w/nicely edgy vocals, leads into Spanish hip-hop
3. Mid/downtempo bilingual folksy/country-ish/rock blend.
*4. Lightly bouncy bilingual fluff w/a catchy sound & good vocals.
5. Downtempo English love song.
*6. Spanish spoken word to .53, then light cumbia-esque romp, then more spoken word & music. Such a fun little thing.
7. Slow, dramatic ballad at first, picks up speed & energy.
*8. Mostly midtempo. In Span. w/Eng wordplay. (They say “folk you, folk me”) It’s not an FCC.
*9. Upbeat, spacey wiggle w/cool horns & catchy sway.
10. Stripped-down and lowkey in English
*11. Upbeat w/wacky vocals in English. Oddly fun.
*12. Quirky retro lounge laze in English.
13. Spanish ballad w/a light touch, good use of piano.
