With the first listen to Salsipuedes, with its mix of barroom weepers, Spanish-language ballads, and funked-up country-rockers like Claudine and La Mexicana, we immediately knew they were back in the same cool East L.A. groove that made Dulcinea so great.

Album Notes
The new release from L.A.’s Mexican-Americana roots collective Tony Zamora & TREMOLOCO is titled “Salsipuedes”.
This album of all new original songs is a West Coast/Los Angeles album to be sure but also features some of their Texas regulars from both Houston and San Antonio who also play in the band on the road.

Produced by David Raven and recorded primarily in California (and Texas), it features a collective of talented men and women both young and upcoming and older well established players all of whom play with the band. They have worked with some of the most respected and well known artists in the world.

As an added bonus two of the new songs including the single "Claudine" and the bluesy rocker "The Riverside" feature scorching guitar performances by Dave Alvin.

Salsipuedes translates to, “Leave If You Can” One listen to this album of clever well written bi-lingual songs, steeped in traditional forms but with an unmistakable originality to them and you’ll be as hooked as the title suggests. Another fascinating musical journey traversing different locales from the West to the Southern States to Old Mexico with as many styles, stories and people one can imagine.

Tremoloco does it again!
It was worth the wait. Tony Zamora and some of the very best "Roots, Tex-Mex, Gulf Coast, Country-Ass, Mexican-Americana" musicians on this particular planet just made a smokin record. Tremoloco's "Salsipuedes" is a stone gas. And words can't even begin to do justice to the brilliant cover art..

Richard Clayton

What a great record..... I loved Dulcinea but this one (Salsipuedes) is quite a bit richer and deeper

New CD
Your new CD is amazing! So much variety and so much talent, all on one incredible disc. Mil gracias from Minnesota.

I received Salsipuedes about a month ago and it has yet to leave my car. I love the music, I love the artists and I love this album. Salsipuedes definitely makes my deserted island list. Thank you Tony Zamora for creating another exceptional album!


At Last!!!!
This cd is fabulous. Covers a number of musical genres, grown up lyrics that make you laugh, cry, relate and tap your toes. I listen at work, home and play. And, if you haven't already got Dulcinea, Get it! The two go hand in hand. An absolute must have for the self-professed music lover/collector. They both are really off the beaten trail, fresh and a relief from the mundane. Throw them on at your next dinner party, bbq, or house party! Your guests will thank-you. It's just fun.

L.A.’s Tremoloco Drops Smokin’ New CD "Salsipuedes"
Nothing gets Lonesome, Onry and Mean’s blood pumping like opening the mail and finding a long overdue
album from Los Angeles roots outfit Tremoloco. The band’s previous release, 2008′s Dulcinea, was in heavy rotation on the jukebox at our local water hole for several years, and the album seldom left our truck. The band supported the album with a stupidly funny video of opening track “Mi Novela” (the Spanish term for soap opera). But with the first listen to 16-track Salsipuedes, with its mix of barroom weepers, Spanish-language ballads, and funked-up country-rockers like “Claudine” and “La Mexicana,” we immediately knew that Tony Zamora, Bob Robles, Cougar Estrada, Mike Tovar, Johnny “Vatos” Hernandez Jason Lozano, Juan Chacon were back in the same cool East L.A. groove that made Dulcinea so great.
The album also spotlights the always clean playing of longtime Dave Alvin sideman Rick Shea, who co-wrote a couple of the tunes.
From a local standpoint, the best news was the utility players the band brought in. Not only does former Blaster Dave Alvin add star power and rip his guitar on “Claudine” and “The Riverside,” but down in the fine print, we discovered two local names: Accordionist Roberto Rodriguez and vocalist Karina Nistal.
Rodriguez has done two tours of the Northwest with the band since first meeting them here in Houston at a Tremoloco gig at Under the Volcano in 2009, and, according to Zamora, Rodriguez was instrumental in bringing Nistal, the popular Houston vocalist who decided to try her luck in Los Angeles last year, into the recording mix.
Rodriguez spent a couple of weeks with Zamora preparing for last year’s tour and Zamora took the opportunity to add Rodriguez’s accordion to four tracks.
According to Rodriguez, “I was staying with Tony and he wanted a female vocalist, so I told him about Karina.
Once he saw her show, he liked her and asked her to duet on the album,” he says. “I think he’s also had her open some shows for them.”
Nistal absolutely nails it on her duet with Zamora on the brassy “Misión de San Fernando.” Zamora notes, “She really worked hard on her stuff. We were very impressed with her effort and her work ethic.”

According to Zamora, the album title has several meanings.

“The best translation is ‘leave if you can.’ It was originally three words, sal si puedes,” he says. “There’s a Salsipuedes Creek in California, a point break in Baja, and a town in Mexico. But it has now morphed into just one word.

“The original connotation was a place that is so beautiful you simply couldn’t leave. It’s a bit darker with us, of course, like at this point, for better or worse, we are who we are,” adds Zamora. “We may love it and/or hate it but we ain’t changin’, just lying in the bed we made. We’re just a bunch of old-ass writers, musicians and artists who don’t know anything different.”
