Y La Bamba, Vin Blanc/White Wine

BRANDON WIDDER
8 pm., Sunday June 16 | Free.

600 E Burnside St.
 
[SPANGLISH ROCK] There’s something intrinsically beautiful about a band that can fluidly switch between languages without alienating us monolingual folks. Luz Elena Mendoza and the rest of Portland’s Y La Bamba often do just that, melding distinctive elements of traditional Mexican music with the rain-soaked indie pop of the Pacific Northwest. Y La Bamba’s latest release, Oh February, showcases Mendoza’s quirky, operatic aptitude and the band’s use of Latin rhythms, subtle accordion and flowing guitar. It’s the percussive romps and dance-folk beats that snake their way through the EP’s haunting undertones that separate the six frenzied tracks from the hokey indie-rock rabble of an everyday Portland band. If only we could all speak Spanish. Opener Vin Blanc/White Wine is the latest project from Joe Haege of 31Knots and Tu Fawning, whose new album, In Every Way But One, comes out next month on upstart Portland label Party Damage Records.
