You’ve been tangoed.Five years on from their stunning, passion-drenched debut, La Revancha Del Tango, Argentine guitarist Eduardo Makaroff and Parisian electronica producers Philippe Cohen Solal and Christoph H Müller are back and continuing the progression of the tango. Initial sessions for Lunático took place at Studio ION in Buenos Aires with a wide range of local musicians, including a full string section. The result is a warmer, less stark album – deeper, broader and richer. In places, the return to the Argentine roots is evident as it draws more heavily on tradition. Elsewhere, the tango genre’s limits are tested by drum loops and rap, but it always seems as fitting as a rose between the teeth. If you’re after dark, bloody romance with a twist, look no further.
Gotan Project – Lunático, released 17 April 06 on XL Recordings.
