El Muchacho by Roberto Tapia
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Fonovisa
Like any corrido singer worth his sal, Roberto Tapia makes narrative songs that also sound like stories. Every track on El Muchacho (ay, what a title!) rolls with the flow of a narrative: Tubas and accordions merrily push the action along as Tapia's sometimes salty, sometimes surly, always almost sweet tenor animatedly spits out thrilling plot twists like he's spinning yarns around a campfire. But these tall tales also make you feel like dancing. Check out the rollicking gallop of "La Carta Fuerte" or "El Mini Lic," a topsy-turvy dance with the accordion.
