Flaming hot acoustics that leave you in a trance..
Mexican guitar virtuosos Rodrigo y Gabriela are one of the modern instrumental guitar god/goddesses in the world. Most of the time you'll hear people complain there are no vocals, but in this instance, vocals would simply drown out the main talent at hand. There have only been a handful of acts I've seen live that have left me mouth open and simply amazed by what I was seeing and definitely in the list that includes Charles Bradley, James Blake, Florence + Machine and Dallas Green; Rodrigo y Gabriela surely are included. With their long-spanning 20 year career, the Mexican duo continue to impress with their magic hands that enthuse even the biggest music hater. Their upcoming album Mettavolution is scheduled for an April 26 release via ATO Records, but their title track and first single "Mettavolution" dropped yesterday. This will be their first album in 5 years since their 2014, 9 Dead Alive. Their world-wide tour kicks off in April including North American dates so be sure not to miss out on that.
