EDITORS’ NOTES

By 2013, fans knew to expect surprises from pop maverick Natalia LaFourcade, but her tribute album to Mexico's beloved bolero composer Agustín Lara was something else entirely. The arrangements are as eclectic as the guest list would suggest. She and Devendra Banhart make a sexy tango out of "Amor, Amor de Mis Amores." Meanwhile, Meme, of rock band Café Tacvba, helps turn "Limosna" into quirky ukulele pop. And with Brazilian master Gilberto Gil, LaFourcade spins "Farolito" into an old 78 record, complete with scratches.

An absolute treat!

This is, perhaps, one of the best "tribute albums" I've listened to in quite a while. LaFourcade's voice engenders a particular innocence and purity that nicely complements the various male artists featured artists on this album. The songs are neither trite, nor stylized-- honoring the music of Agustin Lara, while updating them for a 21st century ausidence (think ukelele, and simple piano hooks). Overall, a wonderful addition to your iTunes library!

Bueno pero incompleto

Lo que decepciona de iTunes Estados Unidos es que no pongan los álbumes completos. Ahora que estoy en México, el cd de Natalia Incluye un DVD… es mejor adquirirlo entonces en una tienda que de manera digital.
Por otra parte el álbum de Miguel Bosé "PapiTwo" versión digital pero en iTunes México, incluye más canciones y dos video, lo que no trae la versión de iTunes Estados Unidos.
