Amoeba Review

Ray, Hollywood 03/31/2014

Arguably one of the greatest bands to emerge from LA’s underground to worldwide admiration. They are a direct reflection of the city’s eclecticism. Multicultural subgenre fusion with big catchy hooks that will be stuck in your head for days. Fun for the whole familia.


03/10/2014

Ozomatli’s eighth album is a truly uplifting affair. Their typically upbeat mix of rock, cumbia, hip-hop and just about every other genre continues to be updated and comes together remarkably well here. “Place in the Sun” is bright and cheery, pleasing enough to land on pretty much any radio station while still retaining their signature sound blend. “Brighter,” featuring The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, pulls reggae into the mix for a very SoCal song that makes you want to run outdoors and enjoy this early Summer weather we’re having. Those songs make for a great entry point for anyone new to the band, but longtime fans will be pleased to know they haven’t abandoned their strongly Latin roots, with the hip-shaking rhythms of “Paleta” and “Prendida” being clear album highlights, while their forays into party hip-hop are pretty irresistible, as on the Black Eyed Peas-ish “Ready to Go.” Place in the Sun once again proves Ozomatli are the rare band in which adding more and more ingredients to the stew don’t ruin it; rather, it’s a delicious blend of Southern California’s cultures and sounds.
