ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Despite their sleepy Spanish name, initially just a derelict inscription on the wall of the band’s rehearsal space, the music of Boston band, Muy Cansado is energetic and awake. 2013 brings Muy Cansado’s third release, a nine song LP titled, Let It Go. Muy Cansado’s self-released debut album, Stars & Garters (2008), inspired comparisons to ‘90s acts like the Pixies, Lemonheads, and Letters to Cleo. With their 2010 EP, Love & Fear, founders Chris Mulvey (vocals and guitars) and Lisa Libera (vocals and bass) teamed with Jon Ulman (drums) to further develop their sound. Let It Go, a product of the band’s evolution, sees the band exploring broader and richer dimensions only hinted at in previous releases.

Let It Go’s lyrical themes are anxiety and release (letting go), but the poppy, upbeat nature of the music makes it easy to dance along before diving into the words. The call and response between Mulvey and Libera in “Predisposed” highlights the connection between the two musicians and Libera’s bass line beckons you to move along. The lead single, “Not For Nothing,” has been described by The Boston Herald as “a little slice of rock ’n’ roll heaven.” “Sara Lee” spotlights Mulvey’s strong vocals and guitar with a Chris Isaak-esque reverb-drenched tremolo. The album’s title track, “Let It Go,” takes the band out of its normal element into a more atmospheric, orchestral realm.

"These songs are all stellar; plus Chris and Lisa’s harmonies are simply magical. I was going to call out the songs that I loved, but in all honesty I loved every track."
- Debbie Catalano, The Noise

"Lead single “Not For Nothing” is a little slice of rock ’n’ roll heaven."
- Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

"The album is more of the same from Muy Cansado, which is to say that it’s built around incredible songwriting, big, beefy bass lines, and hooky indie rock guitars. It’s more of the same, but improved, and saying things like “definitely worth the wait” may seem cliche, but it is."
- Richard Bouchard, Boston Band Crush
