“El Sabor Exotica” five member combo rocking the roots of surf/sci-fi from around this vast global multicultural milieu. Equatorial. Extraterrestrial. Extemporaneous. Exquisite.
Alewife begins with spiritual access to the lunar pull of tides and sand, fueled by the swinging equatorial sounds of Santo & Johnny, sparked along the way by the midcentury soundtrack giants like Yma Sumac, Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota and Antonio Carlos Jobim, while slurping hungrily on a shot of loamy adrenaline from the surf guitar wizardry of Ventures after they'd dosed on Hawaii Five O, then seasoned with the seductive classic melodies and rhythms of Puerto Rico, Colombia and Cuba ... fill to the rim with ice, shake vigorously, and pour out a cool cocktail.
