Grupo Fantasma. Brownout. Black Pumas. Glorietta. Ocote Soul Sounds. No matter what outfit you know him from the best, it’s adequately clear that Adrian Quesada has a near-unquenchable artistic appetite. And on the verge of his upcoming instrumental LP Jaguar Sound – the visionary’s second full-length for 2022 – Quesada and his Boleros Psicodélicos crew are eager to put their passions on display 2:15PM this Saturday on the Honda stage at Austin City Limits Music Festival and 8PM this Sunday for an official ACL taping.
Quesada’s promised a “nasty-ass backing band” and “lush orchestration” plus his international roster of vocalists for these two performances, none of which have been heard in-person since their live debut in Studio 1A this past June. And with just a week and a half left, Boleros Psicodélicos is an ideal countercultural companion piece to Hispanic Heritage Month. So toss on the record and find your personal favorite among the features, like the Angélica Garcia-graced “Ídolo”.
