Presente by Bajofondo
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Masterworks
Making tango sexier is a daunting task, but Bajofondo have made a career out of it. Presente finds the hipster crew opening up the lounge chic and hip-hop cool of previous releases to dalliances with jazz, rock, pop and even bhangra. (Check those rolling drums on the majestic "Patras.") On many tracks, the tango of it all is more an essence: an accordion creeping around here, some strings swelling there, a general aura of intrigue. "A Repechaje," for instance, pairs hip-hop percussion with sultry accordion, while "Milongon" stages a TV-superhero brass breakdown at its center.
