Mariachi El Bronx 'Mariachi El Bronx (II)' (album stream)
On August 2, the Bronx's party-starting mariachi rock offshoot Mariachi El Bronx will release their second album, fittingly titled Mariachi El Bronx (II), via their own White Drugs imprint. Rather than make you wait, however, we've arranged a stream of the whole thing right now.

As a press release explains, the album "bristles with intensity, drama and emotion –- hallmarks of both mariachi and punk music. The 12-song collection contemplates the nature of love –- a traditional topic in mariachi music, as men often hire bands to serenade the women they are courting –- but Mariachi El Bronx brings a unique sensibility to the subject."

Form your own opinion on the album by checking out the full stream below. Mariachi El Bronx will also join Foo Fighters on an upcoming North American tour, the dates of which can be viewed here.
