iTunes Selects CAFÉ TACVBA “El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco” As The “BEST LATIN ALBUM OF 2012”

The First New Release In Five Years From The Legendary Mexican Alternative Group Has Been Widely Hailed As “ambitious, groundbreaking and quite simply, superb…another masterpiece… forty minutes of pure musical bliss… Five Solid Stars!”

“El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco” (The Object Previously Called An Album)” Was Also Recently Selected By NPR As One Of Their Favorite Albums of the Year:

“This is a band that has never rested on its laurels — which is ironic, because if any Latin rock band gets to gloat, it’s Café Tacvba. It’s outlived all other rock en Español icons from the ’90s, and its music is truly the soundtrack of an era. The new record is synth-heavy, with nods to Andean and Mexican folk melodies. Part of Café Tacvba’s success can be attributed to the honesty with which it writes. No marketing ploys here: The new album does not contain much in the way of drugs, sex, romance or rock ‘n’ roll, but instead engages in earnest introspection about life, aging, loss and living in a country ridden by violence. The band has proved that it consistently evolves with each record, but one thing always remains the same — a desire to just keep making good music.” – NPR –“best music of 2012”

“Cafe Tacvba hits new mark with ‘El Objeto’: Cafe Tacvba may be one of the most important rock bands alive…The new album from Mexico’s fantastic quartet is ambitious, groundbreaking and quite simply, superb. The album has the depth, breadth and exploration of the later works of The Beatles, with touches of progressive rock and the band’s own unique recipe of electronica combined with Mexican folkloric sounds and pre-Colombian rhythms. …the best moment to discover one of the most remarkable artistic collectives of our time.”

“With a new disc, the kings of Mexican art rock get back to where they once belonged. Latin-rock historians take note: 2012 is the year when the genre’s most transcendent band made a triumphant [return]… Café Tacvba are the Mexican equivalent of the Beatles or Radiohead depending on your generation. Now the quartet are releasing their most daring experiment to date” – Rolling Stone

“★★★★ – Café Tacuba celebrates the art of creative meandering… Café Tacuba doesn’t chase fads…But the band displays its mastery of 21st century electronic intertextuality  …”Objeto” [is] an object of obscure desire, filled with tantalizing possibilities about where rock may be headed, and how, and why.”  – Los Angeles Times

“It’s good to have [Café Tacva] back. Rubén Albarrán, an astonishing singer, brings his full game …But what really seems new on “El Objeto” is its degree of introspection. Also, while its lyrics can be as fractured and imagistic as ever, emotionally it’s the warmest album Café Tacvba has made.”- New York Times

 

“★★★★ ½ – Mexico’s favorite indie rock heroes Café Tacuba reinvent their own crazy wheel with El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco. Since the band has always recorded infrequently, each recording is an event. … at the very threshold of 21st century indie pop – these ten songs prove that they are, quite literally, one of the finest and most adventurous rock bands in the world.” – ALL MUSIC

 

“The group’s first new record in five years pulls off a remarkable feat: Coming two decades into Café Tacvba’s career, it’s as honest, humble and refreshing as the band’s debut. …El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco is fantastic: Reflective and lyrically gripping, Café Tacvba perfects its mix of Mexican folk, rock and electronica. …By releasing such a personal and introspective album — about universal issues like getting older, lusting after someone who isn’t good for you, and seeking joy — they’ve created a record that captures and mirrors much of what Mexico faces today.” –NPR Music

 

“★★★★ – Mexico’s Café Tacuba [is] back with a vengeance …the Tacubos deliver one of their strongest albums ever. …great melodies, tasteful arrangements, and lyrics that simultaneously live in sublime and mundane worlds. It is a personal, ambitious album that experiments without ever losing its pop sensibility and accessibility. It grooves it rocks, and it makes you want to go back to it over and over again.”

– San Antonio Current

 

“This is their 7th studio album in their 20 years of making groundbreaking music that seamlessly fuses sounds and genres, and without fail, this is another masterpiece …Their vast repertoire only seems to get better with every new album they release. El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco is a manifestation of Café Tacvba’s evolution and maturation that excites the listener with each track — they remain fresh and energetic which is impressive considering their longstanding career as pioneers of Mexican rock. If this is what aging gracefully sounds like then it makes me look forward to the future.” – Remezcla Music

 

“The first single taken from Tacvba’s new album, “De Este Lado Del Camino”, is simply stunning. It is extremely melancholic and uplifting but different from anything else you have heard before. And that’s Café Tacvba … the album sounds huge, detailed, clear and compact without being digitally unlistenable. There are a lot of electronic elements, noises and textures that constantly come and go… Here, we just have forty minutes of pure musical bliss …El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco is a unique album in their discography that is challenging and rewarding for those who are interested in diving into Café Tacvba’s musical world.”- SoCal Music today

 

“★★★★★- /Five solid stars! – one of the most anticipated Latin music albums of the year.  The Bottom Line: Cafe Tacvba’s new album is remarkable. …If you are looking for something ‘outside of the box,’ Cafe Tacvba’s new album is your best shot right now.”-About.com:“Latin Music”
