Los Goutos (from the album Mighty available as a self-release)
Musically, the sound of Los Goutos is a celebration. The players raise a joyful ruckus, teetering and swaying near the edge of the melody while joining gathering together in a sonic cacophony, the audio equivalent of a tent show selling salvation for the recent Los Goutos release, Mighty. Community vocals shout in harmony as “Can’t Hurt” sends out a plea to the heavens for a clearer understanding of the world we live in while Los Goutos hushes the Country backing to make a request in “Killing Me Kindly” and turns “Over Easy” on a slowly circulating rhythm wheel,
Mighty counts to four as they light a ska beat blaze to give sizzle for “Tequila Set the House on Fire” while the accordion of Los Goutos hops between Tex Mex (“Dawn”) and Cajun (“Down to the Studs”) as it adds flavor and flash to the tunes. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Los Goutos proudly claim three songwriters within the five core members. A south of the border melody opens the album as Mighty suggests “Steal It, Pawn It, Buy Another” in a mixed language story line, weathers “Blizzard” with assertive chord strums, and kickstarts a rock’n’roll beat for the honky tonk disclosures in “If You’re Gonna Miss Me (You Must Be Pretty Lonely)”. Los Goutos strut alongside “Moscow Mule” as they knock back the brew with a touch of downhome Folk and bring the Blues for a musical come-on to “Louise” as Mighty borders “Rat in a Trap” on a noir mood and hits the floor, creating a new dance step using 60’s sunshine 60’s for “The Corkscrew”.
