More new music came on my radar this last week. Go find it on your platform, buy it, download it, and enjoy a nice drive or some patio-sitting while staying safe at home.
Jaime de Anda y Los Furiosos – JDA teamed up with Grammy-winning producer AB Quintanilla, III to unleash a hard-core conjunto tune, Vete A Volar. I was particularly excited about this tune when I saw drummer Aaron Holler working on this tune in his studio knowing that it would be a hard-driving, heavily drummed hit. The band that backs de Anda was also christened, Los Furiosos. And the name matches the musical style. The tune itself is a brush-off song that could be dedicated to a failed love, or even former bandmates. Enjoy it!
Tortilla Factory f/ Lia G – The legendary Tortilla Factory continues to produce good quality stuff and Enseñame featuring Lia G on vocals caught my attention. A powerful horn section backs up some strong vocals by Lia Gallardo, a Cubana, on this ranchera produced by Gabe Zavala. Check it out. According to Tejano Nation, this tune is taking over the charts in Mexico. Read TNs post to find out more about Tortilla Factory.
Mike Gonzalez and Iconiczz – Also known as Jimmy Gonzalez’s son and drummer, Mike Gonzalez has set off to produce some new music with a band whose name pays tribute to his iconic dad. Si Me Tenias sounds like something Jimmy G would produce for himself, so, the apple doesn’t seem to fall far from the tree. I don’t know who the vocalist is, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon as this tune gains popularity.
