“In their newest album, 9 Dead Alive, Rodrigo y Gabriela return to their roots,” writes NPR Music, reminding listeners why they fell in love with the Mexican duo in the first place. The album finds them at the peak of their musical flexibility.” Consequence Of Soundpraised their “remarkable guitar chops and their outright refusal to rest on their laurels.” While Relixnoted that “production of the album lets their guitars have full effect, with each note hitting a nerve.”
Recorded at their Pacific Coast hideaway in Ixtapa, Mexico, 9 Dead Alivecaptures the warmth and spontaneity of two great musicians riffing and jamming together; perfectly distilled into nine new songs teeming with desire, elegance and gusto. Representing their first collection of new material in 5 years, each of the songs on the album are a personal celebration of individuals who have passed on, but through their deeds and words still resonate in the 21st century. Going as far back as Eleanor of Acquitaine (1122 – 1204) to Viktor Frankl (1905 – 1997), and including a tribute to one of Rod and Gab’s enduring touchstones – animals and nature.
