This beloved band of hard-rockin’ gypsies is back with a wild new album featuring the spirited playing of Thomas Bobena, whose mixed bag includes rock, mariachi, and a dash of polka. Just when you think you’ve nailed his root-fifth MO after a song like “Dig Deep Enough,” Bobena will throw down a grooving, busy riff like the one in “Amen,” making Pura Vida Conspiracy full of fun surprises.
