This spring the Austin-based Latin funk orchestra celebrated their tenth anniversary as a band with the release of their fifth and newest album El Existential. There's a reason why Prince has been known to tap the 11-piece group to perform as his backing band, and you can hear it on this track. "Telaraña," which means spider web, grooves with an upbeat, rocky vibe thanks to bouncy rhythm and some fiery guitar work courtesy of Curt Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets.
