When I first encountered El Americano I wondered why it sounded a bit familiar to me. Lo and behold this band was formally Pilots in Orbit! They enchanted me with their melodies years ago when I saw them @ Maxwell's in Hoboken. This album is full of the same energy and magic that captured back then, but with a much improved sound. Clearly the band has been honing their craft over the years. I eagerly await more, and am glad to have re-discovered their music.
Favorite track: 34 After Yesterday.
