Album Review Federico Aubele - Berlin 13
Argentina's Federico Aubele released his newest album "Berlin 13" one month ago on Thievery Corporation's ESL Music label. Federico's 3rd album is a finely tuned mix of smooth Latin guitar, Spanish/English vocals that bear similarities to Yello's German vocalist then pressed through Thievery Corps' more dubby global influences. The first time I heard it, my son had put iTunes on repeat single track mode, but it wasn't until the fourth time through Berlin that we noticed that the song couldn't possibly be over 15 minutes long. This is a testament to how smooth the album flows, which may be a detriment to its poignancy in your music collection in the future. The definite keepers are Berlin, No One, Bohemian Rhapsody in Blue, Efemara, and 13.
