"I'll freely admit that I've always had a fascination with the ALT-Latino music scene. From MANU CHAO & MANO NEGRA to LOS LOBOS to SODA STEREO to OS MUTANTES to CAFE TACUBA to ATERCIOPELADOS...
so when local artist/multi-instrumentalist ABDIAS ERNESTO GARCIA walked into my record store & asked me to listen to his project, i was intrigued...after a listen, i was BLOWN away.
With a strong nod to his Latino-roots (& a little to Neil Young!), Abdias beautiful self-produced, self performed 10 song debut is authentic, emotional & thoroughly ORIGINAL...& sounds AMAZING on vinyl. THIS reporter can't wait to see Abdias & his band LIVE."
