¿Y Ahora Qué Hacemos?

¿Y Ahora Qué Hacemos? by Jarabe de Palo
Released: May 2011
Label: Nacional Records
Jarabedepolo seems to take the ambiguity of their umpteenth album's title as inspiration, answering the question posed with a wide variety of moods, from buoyant alt-pop to Manu Chao-esque mellow grooves. At the album's center are three resolutely pensive responses to "And now what are we going to do?": the introspective, darkly titled "La Quiero A Morir;" the almost melancholy title track; and the fierce, furious blues rocker "Fin." Rock variety has always been the spice of this Spanish outfit, but clearly someone in the band is working through something.
