KARAMELO SANTO: Hacienda Bulla: CD

A decent enough slice of rock en Español, which means that this is up to its eyeballs in post-Two Tone ska stylings, with some salsa, cumbia, and other Latino rhythms added for good measure. While this genre has been ravaged by the uninspired, the creatively challenged, and the just plain lousy nearly as much as your average U.S. mainstream rock genre, this wasn’t all that bad. They ain’t Café Tacuba or anything, but they hold their own quite nicely.
