ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aliens of Extraordinary Ability

This album is the culmination of more than two years of musical work and carries in it the strong sense of brotherhood that unites us. It also embodies the creative energy of our native Veracruz, and our artistic life in New York City, where everyday our senses are flooded with music and art.

The album’s name makes reference to the Artist Visas that the three of us received before coming to the States. This is the actual (and hilariously descriptive) status given by the government to musicians like us.

Every arrangement and composition was carefully crafted, rehearsed and ripened through multiple shows at the 2011 Marble Hill Summer Concert Series. We then took the live concert to the world-class Carriage House Studios, and played once again for the mics and the attentive ear of Brendan Muldowney, a Grammy- nominated recording engineer.

From Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come we transition into La Iguana, a song from Veracruz, and in Larry Campbell’s brilliant Irish solo (via Richard Schindell’s Spring) we hear El Irish, our own rendition of this bucolic melody. As a counterpoint, Juan Kanagui’s poignantly urban spoken-word pieces thread the album and set the mood for the coming songs. By incorporating different genres and blending them with our roots, we hope to bridge the divide, inviting you to cross into our creative universe.

Aliens de Habilidades Extraordinarias

Este álbum es el resultado de más de dos años de trabajo y lleva consigo la fuerza del amor fraterno que nos une. Trabajando juntos, compusimos y arreglamos la música, ensayamos durante meses, y nos presentamos en conciertos. Finalmente, llevamos este proyecto tal como lo tocamos en vivo, al estudio de grabación. Una vez ahí, contamos con la invaluable ayuda de Brendan Muldowney, ingeniero de grabación nominado al Grammy.

El título del álbum proviene del nombre de la visa que los tres hermanos obtuvimos para venir a Estados Unidos: Aliens of Extraordinary Ability (Aliens de Habilidad Extraordinaria), es el nombre oficial que el gobierno da a músicos como nosotros.

Poco a poco, la ciudad de Nueva York se ha ido convirtiendo en parte de nuestro mundo. Nos ha inundado con su gran diversidad de recursos musicales y a la vez ha fortalecido nuestras raíces mexicanas. Con nuestra música, esperamos trascender fronteras, tanto culturales como ideológicas. Asimismo, esperamos abrir una ventana que nos permita compartir los sonidos que dan vida a nuestro universo creativo.

Ernesto, Alberto y Luis Villalobos
