Patrón (pronounced with a Spanish accent and an "r" that rolls under the tongue like a jelly bean soaked in lysergic acid) could be the premonitory soundtrack to Roberto Rodriguez's next feature film, if it were set in a post-apocalyptic and degenerative Las Vegas where the only chance of salvation would be Barry White's resurrection.
While the guitars are choking on fuzz, the bass and the drums are fighting for the heavyweight championship title. The vocals are warm, velvety, and hypnotize like an old lady's snake charmer, and never give in to this thick wall of sound.
The album was produced by Alain Johannes (Eleven, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell Band) and also happens to be the last album ever recorded in his legendary studio 11AD, in Los Angeles. To play on the album, Patrón invited friends and not the least: Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, The Bronx...), Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator), Barrett Martin (Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Tuatara...), Monique St Walker (Blackbird Days) and others...
Powerful and sexy rock, heady melodies that will stick to your skin like a thirsty alcoholic tick.
