It’s the weekend after the Democratic Primary election, so, of course, you need new material on your playlist for those weekend cookouts.
Ricardo Castillon y La Diferenzia – Para Que – From the metropolis of La Pryor, TX, Ricardo Castillon drops this new tune after quite a few years without new material. He’s my FB friend, so, I know he’s been looking for opportunities to produce new material with some of the best out there. Castillon still has that unique voice which he is not afraid to punch up at just the right time on a song–and he does it on this one. FYI – Known for his ability to switch genres at the drop of a hat, he also does this tune in a mariachi format. I’m looking forward to more from Castillon.
David Lee Garza y Los Musicales – Brindo y Me Rio – DLG finally released his latest album after riding on a couple of singles for a year or so. Fronted by Cezar Martinez, they offer up a bold production, including this tune. With an old school Tejano organ base combined with the traditional DLG sound, this one keeps one on their toes. I don’t know if this is the latest single, but I found it on the tube. One thing is for sure, this album is available at the DLG website and store. I’m not allowed to post it on here, but you can listen to it here.
Irma Aguilar f/ Los Texmaniacs – Arrepentido – This one came across the radar this week and I liked it. Check it out.
Chavela Chapa – Homenaje a Ruben Ramos – It’s about time someone wrote an homage to El Gato Negro Ruben Ramos. The Grammy winner, a Sugar Land original, is still kickin’ ass. A few years ago, he went through some health issues, but came roaring back. I like this tune.
