Rodrigo y Gabriela

The title of Rodrigo y Gabriela's new release, 9 Dead Alive, serves a dual purpose, reflecting the intimacy of tracks that sound as if they were performed "in your living room," as guitarist Gabriela Quintero says, and also honoring the spirits of influential figures such as Harriet Tubman and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Quintero and her musical partner, Rodrigo Sanchez, insist that 9 Dead Alive is a more rock-influenced set of acoustic instrumentals, although the album's first single, "The Soundmaker," evokes the Mexican duo's traditional Spanish inspirations. Whether they're busking on the streets of Dublin, where they were discovered by Damien Rice, or making music for big-budget films, the pair always stirs up exotic whirlwinds of intricate interplay. Also at the Palladium, Wednesday, May 7.
