Launchpad [Issue #23]
By Mandana Beigi
Oye (CD Nacional)

After nearly five years of silence, the platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Columbian rockers are back with Oye, their first studio album after Gozo Poderoso (2001). In the past few years, Andrea Echeverri (vocals, guitars) and Hector Buitrago (bass, arrangements) were both dedicated to their solo projects, which were well-received by fans and critiques equally.

Echeverri released her self-titled solo debut in 2005. The album, which was also produced by band mate Buitrago, reflected a new phase in Echeverri’s life as a mother - emotional lyrics, simple arrangements, and folky vocals. Buitrago, on the other hand, took on a different approach for his solo release, Conector, which was a collage of sound bites and electronic beats. Their latest release, Oye, represents not only the union of the two founding members, but also a return to a more organic, rock sound reminiscent of the band’s earlier tunes. Over the past five years, they have become better musicians, more in sync and more determined as a duo. “Complemento.” is a modest up-beat love declaration, and something that they clearly were not going for in Gozo Poderoso! Oye will certainly please those who were into the rock elements of the band’s music. And lyrically, they are still very much the socio-politically aware rockers that they were before. They are proud to demonstrate their opposition to the war in “Cancion Protesta” and their mockery of mass consumerism in “Don Dinero.” Other favorites on the album include, “Paces,” “Oye Mujer,” and “Cruz de Sal.” The band was formed in Bogota, Columbia in the early 90s and rose to fame with their debut album, Con El Corazon en La Mano, in 1994. Aterciopelados has become one of the major forces in introducing the Latin alternative sound to the non-Spanish speaking audience. They are now among the favorites and most played artists on KCRW.
