Interlude with Rodrigo y Gabriela

New album by Dublin-based Rodrigo y Gabriela. That's Rodrigo Sánchez and Gabriela Quintero, originally form Mexico City. 11:11 (2009) includes homages to Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd, making them both clever and a bit unusual. Their twists on more traditional forms of guitar playing has brought them to global notice.

Today's Rune: Gateway.

I am of opposing opinion with Charles, that was wonderfully performed.


Try this pop star on for size.
