I really love the Brooklyn alt rock/Latino hybrid band Cordero, led by singer Ani Cordero. I reviewed their live show and first record here. If anything, the band’s secod album – Somos Cordero, which delves more deeply still into Latin rhythms and Spanish language songs – is even better than the first with highlights like the firmly alt rock “Had You Fallen Away” (think Throwing Muses, Juliana Hatfield), the swanky Latinate “Soltera” and “You Could Have Been Mine,” the wistful “Traveler” (see video here) and “Hardly Stand the World.” It’s a thing of beauty.
Ani and Chris, the drummer from the band will be playing in Brooklyn tonight:
- Want to hang out in Brooklyn, eat BBQ in a cute garden, have some drinks with friends, support an indie rock documentary, see the debut of the newest Cordero songs, performances by Wheatus, an acoustic show by Walt Mink AND be part of the documentary?
Come to Pete’s Candy Store this Fri. July 16, 6pm for the Walt Mink the Movie Benefit: Pete’s Candy Store: 709 Lorimer St. Brooklyn
DETAILS and DIRECTIONS here
Cordero will be playing as a duo around 8pm, but come early for the BBQ and
Happy Hour specials!
And that’s an invite direct from Ani – too bad I’m about 450 miles away.
