GranHotelBuenosAires - Federico Aubele

Eighteenth Street Lounge

Only good can come from the kind of role playing games Argentinean Federico Aubele and his buddy played when they were 11 years old. The lads decided to be Beatles ("you be John, I'll be George"). Music and guitar remained with Federico through pop, punk, classical, Brazilian flirtations. Eventually his sights focused back on his own backyard and the tango of Astor Piazzolla. His new album, GranHotelBuenosAires was produced by Thievery Corporation which should afford it instant critical ascent. Aubele's acoustic guitar provides the foundation for a dubby, trippy swirl of vocal, bandoneon and percussion textures. Some tracks sound very much like Thievery Corp. others could be bonus tracks on the Bajofondo Tango Club or Gotan Project recordings. Enjoy your stay at GranHotelBuenosAires.
