9 Dead Alive by Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Released: Apr 2014
Label: Ato Records
9 Dead Alive is a bare-bones return to basics for the flamenco-busker duo, after 2012's salsa-band-augmented Area 52. But give or take the downcast if tranquil "Megalopolis," it's got little of the minor-key doom the metal-inspired twosome has often displayed in the past. Harriet Tubman-dedicated "Misty Moses" hints at "Stairway to Heaven" and spaghetti westerns, while Dostoevsky homage "The Russian Messenger" moves from "Smoke on the Water" echoes to a Middle Eastern-tinged hard shuffle. The rest noodles in typically percussive fashion, with theological paradox crosstalk in "Sunday Neurosis."
