B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music the soundtrack of the barrio. Three decades, two more Grammys, the global success of La Bamba and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well -- and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973. They dont get in the studio as often as they did a few decades ago Tin Can Trust came four years after their previous album of all originals, The Town and the City but when they do, the results are every bit as culturally rich, musically rocking and lyrically provocative as they were back in the day.Its not always the easiest thing finding time away from our touring schedule and families to find time to make an album, says Berlin, but recording Gates of Gold, I have to say its great to be back in the proverbial saddle again. It reminds us of the fun we have had making new music over the years, and its nice to have the opportunity to create something of value.Perez adds, I find that the most interesting part of songwriting and tracking a new album is the differential between the way a song sounds to you at 2 a.m. and the way it may hit you when its 11 a.m. and it reaches the light of day. We may love it just as much or we may realize we can do better. Its always a process of discovering more about ourselves and the music we love to make. Its not always easy getting started again, but I love that moment in the process when the songs start to take on their own life and we can let the kid, so to speak, run out onto the street and start figuring things out for himself. The way songs reveal themselves to us during these periods of writing and recording is my favorite part of the Los Lobos recording experience.
