LOS AMIGOS INVISIBLES

Commercial

Los Amigos Invisibles ~ Commercial With their latest and sixth studio release titled Commercial, the party continues with a little something for everyone as the six-piece known as Los Amigos Invisibles conjure up another album of danceable tunes. As a brief description, their sound is a blend of quite a bit of different stuff including but not limited to disco, jazz, funk as well an expected assortment of Latin rhythms. "Mentiras," essentially the opener after a short prequel, is the first single and arguably one of the better tracks from the Amigos. "Dulce" and "Plastic Woman" are simply made for the dance floor - two songs that blend the funk of Rick James and the disco of the Bee Gees to make for a wonderful listen. "Vivire Para Ti" sounds like a revamped Love Boat theme song and features the vocals of the Mexican pop artist Natalia Lafourcade. One of the standout songs here is the only one that we find written in English. "In Luv With U" is really just a simple love song that incorporates a bit of jazz and funk all with the underlying layer of Latin percussion. The fast-paced "Como Lo Haces Tu" utilizes some nice keyboards and what appears to be sirens, to produce perhaps the closest thing to a classic "pop" song here. Overall, from a pure sound standpoint, there's a lot to like here. The downside might be the suggestive themes littered throughout. Aside from that, get on your dancing shoes and hit play! ~Reviewed by Jeff Bouma
