On a recent evening, we had the pleasure of attending the sold-out concert by Hermanos Gutiérrez at the Pico Union Project. Once again, Sid The Cat was behind the booking of the concert; they have a track record of organizing exceptional events featuring both up-and-coming artists at venues like Genghis Cohen and Gold Diggers, as well as established acts at the Hollywood Bowl. They proved again that they are the best in town.
As we entered the venue, it was clear that the audience was filled with fans of Hermanos Gutiérrez. Throughout the evening, Hermanos Gutiérrez delivered an impressive performance that captivated the audience. The energy in the room was electric, and it felt like we were witness to the creation of a live soundtrack. Their music, which blends traditional Mexican folk music with modern rock influences, was brought to life in a way that was truly breathtaking.
Overall, it was an unforgettable experience to see Hermanos Gutiérrez live, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for this talented group. If you haven't already, be sure to check them out – you won't be disappointed.
Hermanos Gutiérrez is a guitar duo made up of brothers Estevan and Alejandro Gutiérrez. The two have a special bond and their music reflects their close relationship – when they play together, it's like they are "driving a car" on a road trip through beautiful landscapes. Each album they make is its own journey, and they let the music guide them and trust in themselves to see where it takes them.
Their latest album, El Bueno Y El Malo, is their most epic journey yet. It was recorded at the Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville with the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, and showcases the brothers' intimate guitar playing. Estevan's rhythms and Alejandro's melodies intertwine and create a "deeper, darker energy" with complex arrangements and sophisticated playing. Despite having different personalities and approaches, the brothers have a strong balance due to their close relationship as siblings and their love for each other.
The recording process for the album was a special experience for Hermanos Gutiérrez. They arrived at the studio and immediately started recording, not even realizing that the sessions had begun. The brothers were able to completely immerse themselves in the music, with Auerbach acting as a guide rather than a producer. The resulting album is a true collaboration between Hermanos Gutiérrez and Auerbach, with a unique sound that blends the brothers' Latin American roots with Auerbach's rock influences.
El Bueno Y El Malo is a stunning album that showcases Hermanos Gutiérrez's talent and the power of their close relationship. It's a must-listen for fans of guitar-driven music and Latin American influences.
