On their 13th album, Texas' biggest regional Mexican band pays tribute to '60s norteno legends Los Relampagos del Norte. That duo's accordionist, Ramon Ayala, produced the album, and 14 of the 17 songs are Relampagos covers. Updates of "Rogante" and "De Que Es Tu Corazon" make for sprightly cowboy polkas. But towering over all else are two of 2010's most irresistible singles in any genre: the super-hooky shout-along "Hay Ojitos" and, at album's end, "Estamos En Algo": a stop-and-start pastiche of group yells, sustained squeezebox and impossibly soulful singing; a party with dread in it.
