Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DESOL

ON MY WAY

2007-09-11

Sounding at times like Santana’s last couple of discs, which mixed Latin American rhythms and percussion grooves with glossy pop and mainstream rock, this release should find favor amongst those who like a Southwestern twist with their rock. Like vermouth in a dry martini the Latin American/Tex Mex sound is there but it doesn’t dominate the mix. Think the Mavericks bashing it out with Nick Lowe’s Cowboy outfit doing Eagles covers. Stand out tracks include the funky "On My Way" and the percussion fueled "Ghost in the House of Texas". The band gets real close to the mainstream with such tracks as the soaring "Sing It All Night" and the big pop ballad "Teardrops" which features guest vocalist Carmireli who does her best Sheryl Crow tribute.
