Age old Bay Area Ohlone songs last recorded on 78 RPM shift to hot August night backyard quinceañera cumbia grooves and hard rock boogaloo, hand tailored for the Chicano/Native Rock group, ALMAS FRONTERIZAS. Bridging a sound that is as much for the Oakland/San Francisco back streets as the ceremonial prayer houses to the glow of LA and back to the people of the rural tribal reservations across the Mexico/United States border. Political underpinnings grace the album as in "California Shame," lyrically devoted to the Golden State water crisis and the disastrous effects of water sales and proposed twin tunnel projects that would further divert the Sacramento River for corporate agri-business. Closing track "Means Ballad" pays homage to American Indian Movement leader Russell Means. Pressed on 200-gram vinyl.
