Never mind the matching cowboy hats and monochromatic dress shirts, Grupo Montez de Durango turn out traditional norteño without the slightest trace of pop gloss or commercial pretense. On Borron y Cuenta Nueva, Grupo Montez ply their specialty: rancheras and corridos, with the occasional cumbia and polka thrown in for good measure. There isn't a synthesizer or contemporary production flourish anywhere on the disc to detract from the simple, authentic sound of horns and acoustic guitars.
