Most bands fascinated with pop music of the 1960s and '70s approach their material with a light touch, but the men of Hacienda thankfully aren't afraid to put some muscle behind this sort of music, even as they celebrate its beauty and emotional power. Hacienda sounded precociously talented on their debut album, 2008's Loud Is the Night, and their sophomore release, Big Red and Barbacoa, confirms that two years of touring and writing new material have only sharpened their skills. Hacienda's fascination with the Beach Boys hasn't faded, and they can conjure up silky, heartstring-tugging four-part harmonies while working out arrangements that would do Brian Wilson proud during his sandbox period (cue up "Hound Dog" and "I Keep Waiting"), but as songwriters Hacienda are gradually growing into a voice of their own, and these 12 tracks are noticeably tougher, stronger, and more impressive than the stuff on Loud Is the Night. Hacienda are learning what to do with this material, and the arrangements behind the tunes are more imaginative just as the band sounds happy to have a real recording schedule for a change. As befits a band from Texas, Hacienda show a stronger Tex-Mex influence on Big Red and Barbacoa; "Barbacoa" sounds like a lost Sir Douglas Quintet track and "Got to Get Back Home" is a graceful Lone Star 2-step, while Dante Schwebel shows off some tough Link Wray-influenced licks on the rumbling instrumental "Big Red." This group also sound great on the tight, snappy rock & roll of "As You Like It" and the barrelhouse stomp of "Mama's Cookin'," demonstrating these guys know there's a big world beyond pop. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys once again produced these recordings, and he brings a natural, organic sound to the proceedings that suits this band's thoughtful approach. If anyone needed proof that the pleasures of Hacienda's first album were not a fluke, Big Red and Barbacoa has all the evidence you need, and from the sound of this album, the Villanueva brothers should be making more fine music for years to come.

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.

Nebraska: When Bruce Springsteen Laid Himself Bare

In 1982, at the height of his glory, the Boss surprised the world with “Nebraska,” a stripped back and entirely acoustic album. A timeless masterpiece bathed in echoes and reflections. An album that describes an America from the margins, and that many consider his best.
