Cordero's submission of the song "Close Your House Down" to Bloodshot Records 11 Year anniversary compilation CD, For A Decade of Sin,
so floored us that we gathered them up and begged to release their next
album. This powerful, Brooklyn-based quintet (horns, re-verby guitars
and a drummer that defies you to NOT get out of the chair and shake it)
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.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 Rosie Thomas and Lucero.(From Bloodshot Records, 5/27/09)
