Description

We're excited to announce the record release show for our 7th studio album March 29th at Mohawk Austin!

Event Details

Austin’s Grupo Fantasma enters their 19th year as a band with an exciting new record and a fresh take on their unique sound. With six previous albums in their back catalog, plus collaborations and backing gigs with the likes of Prince, Spoon and Los Lobos, not to mention a GRAMMY award and a loyal fan base, they are ready to turn people’s heads again with their newest album (Blue Corn Music).

It’s been five years since they’ve been in the studio, and this time around they’re working with the multi-talented Carlos “El Loco” Bedoya, a highly regarded Miami-based Colombian producer, audio engineer, musician, and songwriter. His credits are extensive, having worked with artists as diverse and successful as Beyoncé, Weezer, and ChocQuibTown. According to the band, Bedoya “brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience as mixer and engineer as well as huge ears and skills as a musician and songwriter.” In addition, Grupo has changed recording facilities and composing scenarios, and are collaborating with special guests more extensively, as well as experimenting with a lot of new, interesting instrumentation, all of which contribute to the record’s familiar yet powerfully fresh vibe.

It’s important to stress that Grupo has always had a special polyglot flavor, an expansive and layered sound too, with two lead singers, multiple percussionists, a big brass section, prominent electric guitar, catchy bass lines, plenty of changes, and a whole plethora of influences. Thematically, the band’s lyrics range from the personal to the universal, the political to the social, from party tunes to down-tempo laments that carry the weight of romance gone wrong, loss and disappointment.

Though the half-decade since their last album "Problemas" was recorded has been full of touring and creatively enriching side projects like Brownout, Brown Sabbath and Money Chicha, the band feels that “the fact that we were able to regroup and rally around new inspiration for a whole new release as we enter our 19th year is a feat unto itself for us. We know many bands don’t make it this far and this long.” Thankfully for their old fans—and the many more newbies this album is sure to gain—Grupo Fantasma has not only survived with t
