Description

Three years after Chicana singer-songwriter SLV (Sandra Lilia Velasquez) released the personally reflective English-language album This Kind—named one of NPR’s “Best of 2015”—she returns with Piece of Mind, a bilingual, politically conscious, and sonically mature album that blends the warmth of old-school hip-hop with electronic worldbeat and sultry, downtempo grooves. For this second solo album Velasquez, the founder of the groundbreaking Latin Alternative band Pistolera, once again sings in Spanish, and, for the first time ever, adds spoken word and rapping to her arsenal.

Originally slated for release in 2017, Piece of Mind was in the final stages of production when the presidential election hit, prompting Velasquez to rewrite and re-record the album’s lyrics to reflect her feelings about the state of the world.
