Songs From The Land is a new album from Luis Mojica. This is another one of those releases that falls somewhere between folk rock, country, and Americana. Dynamic vocals drive much of the action, as Luis really has a unique vocal style. He squeezes an impressive amount of melodic juice out of every word, giving a performance that goes above and beyond what anyone would expect. His lyrical delivery is poetic and skillful. When he really gets on a roll, you wonder how he swims through it so continuously without ever needing to stop and come up for air.
The backing music has a deliberate beat and maintains a certain intensity, even it its unassuming, melodic form. There’s real energy and suspense here, particularly on tracks like Colonized. The music itself is quite good, but Songs From The Land also has personality.
