When Los Angeles hardcore punks The Bronx announced that they would be recording two albums in April 2007, the news that they were recording a third eponymous album wasn’t much of a surprise to anyone. However, the news that they would be recording a mariachi album seemingly came out of left field for even the band’s most devoted fans. Five years later, Mariachi El Bronx seems to have become the quintet’s main focus, and it’s clear why. They’ve embraced the Mexican folk genre, trading power chords and circle pits for guitarróns and charro suits. Experience the grupo de gringos for yourself by watching video of their DJ El Toro-hosted stop by KEXP from last fall below.
