"At the heart of it all are frontwoman Ani Cordero's enviable pipes, which are equally impressive carrying a breathy, spooky tune such as 'Close Your House Down' as a cooker like 'Heart in Me.'" —Econoculture

Cordero’s fourth album and Bloodshot debut is an intoxicating amalgam of shake-your-hips rock and punk-ish abandon, tangled up in sensual Latin rhythms and verses. With smoky, sultry vocals, group leader and namesake, Ani Cordero, will have you weeping in your drink just as easily as she will snake-charm you out of mourning and straight past the velvet ropes onto the dance floor.

It's an alluring concoction of gritty, rambunctious NYC garage rock and sexy southwestern stylings. Inspired, cross-cultural pollination that is both dead on sexy and full of punkish abandon. There's smoking guitar work that jangle the rafters and reference everything from rockabilly to Gang of Four, hair-raising trumpets at once mariachi-fied and full of longing, and percussion that'll animate the dead.


"...showcases Ani's powerful, sultry vocal chops while her band swings and rolls with a rare fusion of jazz, rock, and flamenco. The music explodes with passion and sincerity." —Bust

"...the ensemble miraculously manages to retain the basic characteristics of each of its influences, but as the sultry, Latin-tinged grooves collide with the ominiously swirling darkness of the group's proto-punk roots, the music mutates into something that is highly intoxicating." —The Music Box

"It is this persistent mixing and matching of inspiration, languages and vocal styles that keep the whole record so damn interesting. The ability to transform from track to track is probably the strongest card that Cordero holds... supurb." —Mike: The Magazine

"The band and the album are a unique and powerful combination of light and dark, Latin and American, as well as indie and commercial. That results in the most focused release yet from this intriguing band." —

"Eclectic and exotic, the band provides an outfit for all corners of the dance floor ...[it is] a sound intensely magical--a spontaneous , unprecedented affair. Cordero is dangerously exciting, wickedly entertaining, and they're going to make you dance." —Badger Daily Herald
