Cordero To Release First All-Spanish Album
Published May 13, 2009

De Donde Eres is Cordero’s second album on Bloodshot Records. Set for release on August 26, it is the band’s first album which contains exclusively Spanish songs, written by Ani Cordero on her mother’s guitar after an unfortunate string of personal crises.

 

Earlier this year, Cordero has performed with the likes of Dengue Fever. They plan on spanning the U.S. to promote the release of their new effort—New York-area fans can see them open for Firewater at their CD release party May 24th at Brooklyn’s Southpaw.

 

 Ani and husband Chris Verene have, with past efforts such as En Este Momento or Lamb Lost in the City, recorded music which was anxious and riddled with tension. With De Donde Eres, the twosome take a break from convention to further explore the rhythmic intricacies of Latin music while turning down the guitar amps for a much more quiet and inward set of songs. Their mysterious, gentle melodies pay tribute to forebears such as Nick Drake, Belle and Sebastian, and Os Mutantes.

 

Cordero is led by a woman of Puerto Rican descent who calls Brooklyn her home, but still finds a kinship with many other places—Tucson, Atlanta, and other points on the map where she has lived or performed.  The album title translates as "where are you from?" Indeed, "Where is she from?" has been the primary question from audiences and press alike.
