We’ve seen a spike of activity from beloved Mexican quartet Café Tacvba in the last few months, as they gain momentum before the release of their forthcoming studio album. So far, we have heard the pristine pop number “Un Par De Lugares,” as well as the darker “Futuro.” Now we’re getting more new material, another piece of the puzzle that is their next LP.
Demonstrating their trademark eclecticism, “Disolviéndonos” is a slower composition, in which Café Tacvba takes classic rock to beautiful places, thanks in no small part to Joselo Rangel’s excellent guitar work. Most of the musical movements in this Rubén Albarrán-written number feature shimmering arpeggios and compelling arrangements, with some shades of 90s alternative rock, before taking flight in the last section of the track. “Disolviéndonos” demonstrates a brand of psych pop they have quietly transformed into their signature sound over the years.
Cafeta made headlines recently after announcing they’d reconsider playing one of their most popular songs live in solidarity against femicide. But the real concern is that fans still don’t know the name of their Gustavo Santaolalla-produced album, and the band has only hinted at a spring release. Since it’s already March, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for news of a proper release date soon.
