When they were signed to Tummy Touch, Los Chicharrons were a boisterous two-man party, inclined towards funky shenanigans and cheeky Latin licks. With this third LP on their own label, they've seemingly transformed into an introspective downtempo act. The elongated arrangements, soulfully slick grooves and warm, supine vibes they've embraced here aren't original enough to stand up as staggering works of genius, but the beats and songwriting are of a decent caliber. Fans may be relieved when the second half of the LP reverts back to their usual madcap antics.
