Texas-based troupe Intocable has gained a loyal following over the years thanks to its country-tinged brand of norteno, surprising arrangements and impeccable musicianship. Intocable's crunchy blend of twangy guitars and norteno accordion bring regional Mexican tradition together with country sensibility and more than a touch of rock and roll for a sound that is unique and distinctive in this realm.

The group's newest set, 2C, a play on numerals and letters that signifies 12 -- as in the group's 12th album -- is eminently romantic, more so than in recent albums. Of course, the trademark Intocable cumbia sound is here, but every song bears romantic lyrics and the tracks are all mid-tempo to slow, albeit always with a danceable beat.

In an interesting twist, 2C's beginning and end are flanked by instrumental interludes, traditional in sound to the point of almost sounding folkloric. The initial one is a peppy, danceable, accordion-based cumbia that then segues into "Que Facil Es Amarte," a romantic cumbia full of guitars and melodic lines. It is beautiful, lush fare that aptly blends romanticism with danceability and the mix appears again and again throughout the album.

There are also tracks that are more pop-inclined in tempo and arrangement. "Me Deje Caer," for example, begins with a synthesized intro that evokes traditional Latin pop, then evolves into a slow ballad whose light percussion has bachata tinges.

And of course, there's also Intocable's rock-leaning side, evidenced in the rock guitar intros to tracks like "Por Que No Le Dije," and also in the sudden appearance of rock interludes in unexpected places. "Quisiera," for example, is deceptively norteno until the bridge, where rock guitars appear in ounterpoint with rippling accordions.

There are departures here. "Me Marchare," for example, is a slow and rhythmic traditional ballad set in 6/8 time, with soulful, ranchera-infused vocals alternating with ponderous beat.

And, despite the album's decided norteno feel, Intocable can't resist delving more decidedly into pop. Here, unlike their previous album, however, they resist venturing into that arena until the very end, with "Duda Y Soledad." Whether or not you're a fan of pop or norteno, the track, with its persuasive vocals, rock/pop drums and evocative melody is worth the wait. This is a group that does not record throwaway material, in any genre. ~ By Leila Cobo
