Los Fabulosos Cadillacs - 'El Arte de la Elegancia de LFC'

LFCArgentina’s Los Fabulosos Cadillacs took a decade-long hiatus only to return this year with two strong albums, including its most recent release, “El Arte de la Elegancia de LFC,” the follow-up to March’s return-to-form of “La Luz Del Ritmo.”

“El Arte” finds the Buenos Aires sextet firing on all cylinders as it reworks, rediscovers, and rerecords band rarities and B-sides along with two new tunes and a killer, worth-the-price-of-the-record-alone version of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up,” now known as “Vamos Ya.”

Led by bassist/songwriter  “El Senor” Flavio Cianciarullo and Gabriel Fernandez “Vicentico” Capello,   the internationally popular group sounds energized, tight and punchy as it rocks its way through its patented ska-funk-pop-rock sound. Here, as on other recordings, the band transcends its South American base, making it a darn good group no matter the language. For those looking for a fresh, inventive rock sound, look no further than Argentina’s veteran Fab Caddies.
