El Juidero by Rita Indiana
Released: Oct 2010
Label: Premium Latin Music
On her debut full-length, this Dominican artist fuses twitching, lightning-speed merengue rhythms to electro-disco, synth pop and older Afro-Latin forms like Dominican palos. She peppers it all with grittily politicized and sexy lyrics, all but obliterating merengue's staid, middle class rep. The formula has found favor with both stateside hipsters and pop fans in the Dominican Republic, where Indiana has become something of a serious star. Oh and did we mention she's also a super-tall former model and out-and-proud lesbian (a rarity in Latin music) whose nickname is "La Montra" (the monster)?
