On the heels of a steady rising, break out year in New York City, which has seen La Mecanica Popular perform & refine their "Psychedelic Salsa" sound in numerous venues throughout the area, as well as advance to become one of just 3 national finalists in Dewar's "Dewaristas: The Search for the Next Great Latin Sound," Names You Can Trust presents their debut long-player to a worldwide audience for the first time. Led off by the lead single and official video which dropped earlier in the year on NYCT, La Paz Del Freak, the album weaves it's way around the traditional stylings of Salsa & Bolero, with a heavy dose of electrico, incorporating a blend of Peruvian guitars & experimental synths, sounds and textures. They've been praised for their live performances and recordings alike, receiving endorsments and spins from notables such as Juanes, Quantic, Gilles Peterson & Bobbito to name a few.

The 9-track album of original compositions was recorded between NYC & Peru, written by band-leader Efrain Rozas and co-produced alongside Xuxi Lazzaro (Rita Indiana) & Manuel Garcia Orozco. Featuring a melting pot of musicians from New York, Colombia, Peru & Venezuela, as well as the core 8-piece ensemble that performs live, this debut album serves as a welcome connection between the roots, rhythms, and future possibilities of Tropical music and culture.
