ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pistolera's accordion-driven melodies invite you to a dance party at the Brooklyn-Mexico border. Fans around the world are dancing cumbias to the group's socially conscious songs--en español--about immigrants' rights, war, racism, feminism, and life on the border. Pistolera's two albums, Siempre Hay Salida (2006) and En Este Camino (2008), were produced by Grammy-winner Charlie Dos Santos. The band has toured in the U.S., Belgium, Holland, Portugal, and Mexico, and has shared the stage with Los Lobos, Lila Downs, The Mexican Institute of Sound, Kinky, Ely Guerra, Los Amigos Invisibles, Vieux Farka Toure, and Ozomatli, among others.Tour dates are available at www.pistolera.net

The artwork for the album was done by DC Wallin.

(En Español)
Pistolera es una banda basada en Brooklyn poseedora de un original sonido de pop-latino folclórico. Partiendo de la música tradicional mexicana y con una sensibilidad roquera, este electrificante cuarteto consiste de la cantautora y guitarrista Sandra Lilia Velásquez, la fuerza melódica de Maria Elena en el acordeón, el ritmo irresistible del bajista Inca B, Satz y la baterista Ani Cordero. La agrupación toco su primer show a principios del 2005 y de inmediato tuvo un exitoso recibimiento e invitaciones a tocar en los mejores lugares de Nueva York. Con solo cuatro meses de existencia grabaron su primer demo, el cual obtuvo excelentes reseñas por parte de la crítica especializada y el cual se escucha en la rotación de varias estaciones del underground nacional. Su primer disco fue producido y grabado por Charlie Dos Santos y tiene musicos invitados de Si Se, Grupo Fantasma, Antibalas, y Slavic Soul Party!

Pistolera es fuerte. Pistolera es peligrosa. Pistolera es roquerota y rancherota
Pistolera es fuerte. Pistolera es peligrosa. Pistolera es roquerota y rancherota a la vez. La banda neoyorquino..bien podría estar tocando toda la noche en una cantina de mala muerte o bien podría convertirse en la banda mas popular del canal MTV

The New Yorker


The local group Pistolera favors the fashions of the Mexican revolution and has a foot-stomping sound that's one part ranchera and one part indie pop.

La to Nashvile - Bob Saldana

Sizzling untruncated sounds sampled from the Worlds most famous Barrios!
First thing you will notice is this ain't your daddy's conjunto band. I grew up listening to 45's my dad would bring home of local South Tex-Mex Valley artist usually merchandised at the local; god bless em, beer joints. Have a beer talent comes in hawks a record and then back out into oblivion. Pistolera continues this tradition except in New York people raise their heads and take notice when they hear something that catches their ears. They revel in being the first to say at their block parties have you head Pistolera? Well it is spreading to California home of the singing migrant worker, already you can almost hear them singing Mi Gusta Tomar! In fact I'm singing it and I haven't farm worked in years why? I still drink! Pistoleras' sound is bright clear and heart pounding. I have to admit they don't sound like any Latin recording I have heard. Pristine but raw. I keep looking over to my stereo speakers to make sure the band hasn't TRIPPED over into my crowded living room floor. It was very smart to record the band with a live uncompressed feel. The bands CD Siempre Hay Salida sounds like they are there in your living room, the louder the better. Producer Charlie Dos Santos was able to keep their tempos passionate but not rushed, heartfelt without sounding like La Yorona. Like the guitar driven urgency the Clash conveyed with London calling, Pistoleras Cazador is calling to faraway towns! Hope they can make it to my town, Los Angeles real sooon!..
