Andrés Calamaro just debuted his newest album, Cargar la Suerte, which was recorded in Los Angeles and includes 12 tracks. It was produced by Gustavo Borner, Germán Wiedemer and Calamaro himself, and highlights the Argentine’s signature classic rock sounds. 

Non-musical References

The album alludes to non-musical references that include the Bible, Nietzsche, special herbs, Maradona, friends and even Los Tigres del Norte. The lyricism dives into sedentary nomads, the left aesthetic, and never-ending travels.

Interpret as you will. 

12 Songs

The artist refers to the sound as a cathedral of rock. It was recorded in four sessions at times with up to 10 musicians.

Opinión

“Un inmenso honor haber escuchado el disco mucho antes, las primeras letras, cuando la música era algo inasible. Un disco que es la suma de todos los Calamarosque te habitaron. Más la suma de los días y de los que no están y los que están y el acompañamiento de tu ejército. Como dice Lynch: es hermoso ver a alguien salir de la oscuridad.” Rodolfo Palacios
