If you have followed TNOP over the years, you know that Los Lobos is not "just another band from East L.A." The group's last release, The Town and The City, made our "best of" list in 2006. Now comes the long-awaited Tin Can Trust, which will be released on 3 August, along with a fully plugged-in tour starting with an appearance at Los Angeles' Greek Theatre tomorrow, 11 July.
Los Lobos member David Hidalgo, fresh off his noteable appearance on Bob Dylan's last album, once again wrote the music to bandmate Louis Perez's lyrics. Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times was witness to the songwriting process and files a profile in the paper's Sunday magazine section.
