about

Lowrider soul heads for a south-of-the-border surf date on these two sizzling originals from Alba + the Mighty Lions. A perfect soundtrack for cruising with the bad girls in a drop-top or soothing a late night heartbreak, “La Verdad” and “Esperando” are your tough, no-nonsense friend with a heart of gold who always has your back. Soulful vocals paint a mood while the band’s nimble arrangements follow every move. Alba Ponce de León is a multi-talented artist who cut her teeth in the swirling scene of Brooklyn’s indie underground, backing up Daptone acts Charles Bradley & Naomi Shelton as well as playing a major role in the fearsome feminist freedom fighters, The Resistance Revival Chorus.
