Kronos's Nuevo, a panorama of south-of-the-border music, is one of the quartet's most adventurous outings to date. The disc is striking not only for its over-amped, firecracker sonics but the exhilarating arrangements, mostly by composer Oslvaldo Golijov. On this edition of New Sounds, hear highlights from the CD, including a cocktail pop tune by Esquivel, a chamber arrangement of Revueltas's sprawling "Sensemaya," and "12/12," perhaps the wildest cut, featuring sirens, parade noises, a melancholy tune, and blaring radios - all bound together by Rock en Espanol heroes Cafe Tacuba.
