Album Review

Reviewed 2016-06-18
Spanish-language dance-inspired grooves are Alex Anwandter’s game. This Chilean singer-songwriter excels at a variety of sounds, including typical 4-on-the-floor but also Latin-influenced, instrumental-backed synthy tracks. His pop sound comes through loud and clear, but it’s slightly more complex than what’s played on all the other stations.

FCC clean, although some dirty words en español
Recommended tracks: 1, 2, 3, 7

1. (3:39) Siempre es viernes en mi corazón - Catchy chorus with a violin line. Dancey like Friday night!
2. (4:23) Cordillera - Piano chords punctuated by the drum machine complement heartfelt harmonies in this ode to Chile.
3. (4:16) Traición - Groovy guitar line and cowbell plus crooning about betrayal with female backup vocals.
4. (3:34) Amiga - A bit of a K-pop synth vibe on this one.
5. (4:22) Mujer - Mid-tempo head-bobber with twangy guitar, whistles, and light synth and a feminist bent.
6. (3:29) Manifiesto - A kitschy, heartfelt piano ballad.
7. (4:28) Intentarlo todo de nuevo - Bachata sound with saxophone, but a little bit like Margaritaville.
8. (4:12) El sonido de los corazones que se quiebran - Castanets complement piano in this strained love song.
9. (2:59) Caminando a la fábrica - Lighter, softer, pleasant vocals with piano, strings, horns, and acoustic guitar.
10. (2:59) Qué será de ti mañana? - Acoustic guitar, vocals, and that’s it.
11. (4:02) Te enamoraste - Barry Manilow-esque ballad with vocal swells.
