Europe is starting to check out Lost Angelino! Check out the following:
After Midnight Radio with Noel Casey in Dublin, Ireland
"Lost Angelino is the third release and scores points with its consistently consistent sound and stylistic nuances across music history, cleverly integrated into the overall picture"....MUSIK an sich GERMANY!
"Lost Angelino...these sounds will particularly talk to the generation that listened to the West Coast Sounds..and the excellent vocals remind us of this golden era...so good on several tracks".....RADIO I.S.A. FM FRANCE!
Is this the king of America? The resident of Los Angeles absorbed the entire pop history and spit it out again in the form of eleven strong songs on Lost Angelino. The multi-instrumentalist takes care of the choirs behind his nasal vocals. He does a lot himself anyway, but if necessary, he also relies on the contributions of others. For example, organist Jeremy Long on Blue Light Follow also provides a nice piece of steel guitar. On Beatle Boots they walk around with cowboy hats and on the number is notable that besides Costello also Graham Parker is an important influence. And when Valerie comes along, you can also think of Don Dixon. Songs about good times, bad times and slow times. Very nice songs.......ALT COUNTRY NETHERLANDS!!
"Lost Angelino" the third album in the very long musical career of L.A. based singer-songwriter Mario Rojas, reflects the nostalgic sound of the 70's. We would like to compare these songs with the work of people like Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne and John Hiatt. may that sound like a very promising reference to Mario Rojas......ROOTSTIME MAGAZINE BELGIUM!!!
With 'Lost Angelino' the third album of this American songwriter appeared we are not sorry because this disc will not go unnoticed, we are convinced. At the end of the seventies Mario Rojas was already active in a pop-punk band (Shake Shakes) and undoubtedly he must have been influenced by one Elvis Costello. Also his voice is, as it were, a copy of the grandmaster, at least the Costello in his initial period. But it was also the period of Graham Parker, Jackson Brown and Springsteen. That is noticeable. Multi-instrumentalist Rojas plays a lot of instruments on this album: from guitar to bass, piano, horn, synthesizer, percussion and tambourine. He also takes care of all the vocal parts. A daring piece anyway. Mario Rojas has certainly made a varied album, which was also released in-house. All songs were made in the same studio, except 'Red Dress'. 'Beatle Boots' is a pop gem that jumps out, but also the title track 'Lost Angelino' stands as a house as well as the swinging 'Blue Light Folow'. The danceable 'Everythings Right' (beautiful organ) and 'Cryin' also sound rootsy and a bit poppy. 'Valerie' is a sing-along song and 'Cryin' starts very rhythmically and ends with a slow kadance, a special song. This is definitely an album that should not be missing in your music collection. Especially if you are fond of music from the sixties / seventies.......KEYS AND CHORDS MAZAZINE BELGIUM!!!
"With the production of his friend Ed Tree, "Lost Angelino" is presented as an electro-acoustic album with warm and enveloping tones, since the initial "Temporary Crown", perfect pop-song interpreted with the typical look of the Californians of the seventies . "Beatle Boots" is instead full of an extremely fresh and stimulating soul, a song that could easily be an outtake of a record by Mr. Costello, "Lost Angelino" is flowing and crystalline, melodically among the best of this selection composed of eleven originals that highlight the good vein and talent of Mario Rojas. On this track you can enter "Blue Light Follow" with the beautiful pedal steel of Jeremy Long, "Valerie" with all the baggage of the most classic pop melodies of the sixties, a baggage that Mario has put to good use even in the beautiful "Red Dress "And" Everything ""....LONESTAR TIME ITALY!!!!
