Back with a bevy of new foot stomping, finger plucking, heavy-metal flamenco style madness, Rodrigo y Gabriela will be releasing their new album 9 Dead Alive on April 28th. This masterful Mexican duo are sharing a new album that is “extremely stripped down and minimalistic, a treat both for those who’ve been following the duo since the beginning, and also for those who recently discovered them: letting listeners eavesdrop on a private conversation spoken between two friends, in the universal language of the guitar.” – NPR.

The release posted here is for the Deluxe Package, which includes a load of goodies, listed below. But if you’re not in the mood to shell out a hefty $80 for this package, they are selling the vinyl itself, in a pretty Gatefold sleeve, for $27.

The album is currently available to stream on NPR’s First Listen: https://www.npr.org/2014/04/20/303388443/first-listen-rodrigo-y-gabriela-9-dead-alive

 

P.S. I have no clue which genre to tag this album with, so I am going with my gut instinct of metal!
