Continuing to put their new spin on the banda sound, Banda los Recoditos’ 2010 album ¡Ando Bien Pedo! is another colorful effort from the 16-man crew. Kicking things off with a bang, the boisterous title cut is one of the more traditional numbers here, as the slick and innovative arrangements begin with the following, over-the-top song “Extráñame.” From there to the giddy closer, “Me Gusta Me Gusta,” the album is filled with life, humor, and slick songs of romance, plus plenty of those playful music tricks that alienate the banda purists. There’s little for them here past the title cut, but returning fans will have no problems with the polished and flashy ¡Ando Bien Pedo!
