Mariachi El Bronx — II

Reviewed by yewknee

You ever wonder why bands still make music videos, if they're just going to be shown on YouTube? Well, it can generate new fans and generate sales. Case in point, I saw the Funny or Die sponsored video for "48 Roses" and immediately pointed my browser to Amazon MP3 to get the whole album. It is, as expected, very much so in the realm of Calexico, DeVotchKa, etc. Fortunately, this isn't a genre I encounter too often, so it's a pleasant desert-tinged listen.
