RIYL: Chicano Batman, Santana

Label: Empty Cellar Records

Do you need something hot and sexy to put on at the end of your next party? Do you need something driving and danceable to put on while you make dinner?

Well do I have the record for you!

This album is a bit of everything that is California. It’s Chicano Soul and R&B, but you keep going and you’ll run into some legit surf rock guitars and monster drum beats that lead to an at times psychedelic trance sound.

But most of all this record grooves! It’s hot. I’m doing a little chair dance right now as I type this while it plays in the background.

Limited to only 500 copies on a hand-numbered Stoughton Tip-On Gatefold jacket it also comes with a full color trilingual OBI strip. Summer might be just about over, but Gilberto Rodriguez can help you bring the heat.
