EDITORS’ NOTES

Austin singer/songwriter Carrie Rodriguez digs into her roots more deeply than ever before here. The album—mostly originals plus some classic ranchera covers—was inspired by the alt-country artist’s San Antonian great aunt, Tex-Mex singer Eva Garza. Rodriguez slips back and forth between Spanish and English throughout, as she paints a powerful tale of Mexican immigrants in Texas (“Llano Estacado”), gives her all on a reverent cover of ranchera tune “Si No Te Vas,” and offers up a sassy, autobiographical country-rocker about asserting her identity (“Z”).

Con Mucho Gusto

To fully breathe this album you need to see her sing it with her eyes closed and one hand covering her heart. Its pretty soulful I’m telling you. In any language.
