Tribal guarachero is such a new genre that, on the one hand, there's room for plenty of artists but, on the other, they're going to have to work to prove themselves both distinctive and worthy of fans' attention. This Chicago-based tribal outfit sets itself apart a few ways. First, it plays with the borders of its genre, working and reworking bits of booty rap ("Menealo") and country-fried accordion, hip-hop (the echoing "Rikyboom") and thumping club cuts in tribal's shuffling fashion. Second? Some serious comedy, a la the LOL-worthy "Chuck Norris."
