"Mixing the open atmospherics of the Southwest with the gritty feel of the Brooklyn art scene, the bilingual Ani Cordero, who has worked with Calexico and Giant Sand and her band make guitar rock that gives urban brashness some borderland mystery." - New York Times


"The band of indie-rock veterans switches easily between atmospheric Southwestern ballads and guitar-and-drum driven numbers, and Ani Cordero's moody vocals re-imagine the notion of Spanish rock." - The New Yorker


"...downright gorgeous Latin-tinged indie-rock. (Ani) sings like an angel crying into her drink. The band can surround and buoy her vocals with exquisite grace..." - The Chicago Reader


"Their marvelously rambunctious gigs usually wind up as street parties outside the venue." - The Village Voice

Bio

Cordero's music is an intoxicating amalgam of shake-your-hips rock and punk-ish abandon, tangled up in sensual Latin rhythms and verses. The songs are spiced with smoky, sultry vocals. Group leader and namesake, Ani Cordero, will have you weeping in your drink just as easily as she will snake-charm you out of mourning and straight past the velvet ropes onto the dance floor.

This powerful, Brooklyn-based quartet is equally at home amongst the New York art rock scene or the vibrant Rock en Espanol movement, pegging both with heaping amounts of sassy spontaneity and sexy Latin styling. Cordero's sound and aesthetic has nothing less than an undeniable romantic flair. With the gutsy sensibilities of a gatekeeper, Ani Cordero's fronts a dead-sexy rock band that can set the scene for a golden desert sunset or a lusty encounter with a complete stranger.

Before stepping to the front of the stage and settling down in Brooklyn with hubby Chris Verene (formerly of Rock*A*Teens), Ani played drums in the much acclaimed surf outfit, Man or Astroman?. Cordero has toured and recorded with a winding cast of notable characters, including Calexico (the fruit of a recorded, but never released collaborative album). They've also supported Neko Case on her 2004 Tiger Sessions Tour and have shared bills with everyone from Los Lobos to The Wailers, to Dengue Fever and Lucero.
