Your Daily Lick: Mucho Axé

Time Is Art (self-released)



The third album from this eight-year-old paragon of progressive Bay Area Latin music is a fresh, mid-tempo assemblage of reggaetón, cumbia, mambo, samba, salsa, rock, and more. Using the cover art to equate their music to a slow drag from a cigarette was bold, but smart; like the two-minute guitar solo in "Seductor," it bolsters the band's laid-back vibe and the philosophy Time Is Art.
