Produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, with guest appearances from Hurray for the Riff Raff and members of Tennis and Ozomatli, "I Am Another You" is Making Movies' second LP. It's a bold mix of sounds: psychedelia, experimental rock, son cubano, cumbia and various rhythms descended from Yoruba music, an African tradition that slaves carried to the New World as part of religious rites that evolved into Santería.

“We are all immigrants” is a catchphrase used by genre-flexible rock and rollers Making Movies to describe both their fluidic, multi-genre sound as well as their attachment to social justice issues. Their new album, I Am Another You, uses a plethora of influences and sounds, from Panamanian mejorana to zapateados, to straight ahead rocanrol, to entrance listeners with an appealing, synthesized and heartfelt version of what music in the Americas can aspire to become. Combined with a narrative that speaks to current immigration issues, the new work evokes narratives of suffering and redemption filtered through groovy, soulful musical substance. Led by singer and guitarist Enrique Chi and his brother Diego, the Kansas City outfit also includes a tremendously taut rhythm section comprised of two other brothers, percussionist Juan-Carlos Chaurand and drummer Andres Chaurand. These dudes will be playing at the Cooperage (7220 Lomas Blvd. NE) on Sunday Nov. 12; check this quartet out if you want to know not only where we’ve all been, but also where we are all going, culturally and musically. 7:30pm • $15 • 21+
