Now on their third album, Acho Brother -- singer/guitarist Hector Mayoral and drummer Zak Byrd -- prove as adventurous as ever, blending Mayoral's breathy, impassioned vocals and aggressive acoustic six-string work with myriad found sounds, ambient washes and superb saxophone work from Jeremy Powell, as well as jazzy piano courtesy of Fay Olan. The Puerto Rico-born, Florida-raised Mayoral alternate between singing in English and Spanish; there are melodic ballads and experimental noise excursions. Few other Tampa Bay acts are making music this challenging, varied and rewarding.

The DJ was actually The Castle's very own DJ Tom Gold :)
Fabulous review Gabe! Too bad I missed it.
