Politico by Mexican Institute of Sound
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Nacional Records
Camilo Lara's fourth album makes his project's politics explicit, but wow, does it still sound like an uber-hip party, complete with chic beats and kitschy-cool samples (check out the 007-ready "Más!"). Blip-fests like "Ceci N'est Pas Une Automate" are easy to get lost in, but "Es-Toy" shows the tribal punks how the OGs of alt-electronico do. "México"'s slippery, soused horns get kinda beer-teary, but ay, does that nostalgia go down salty-sweet. And "Revolucíon!" is like a sassy, brassy fiesta in the streets, dancing down the line between protest march and parade.
