A socially charged sonic ode to the dispossessed, the displaced, and the disenfranchised. Each song is a "mini documentary" that asks listeners to reflect on today's world by taking a glimpse at some of the most exploitative events of the 20th century. At the heart of each song is the reminder that because history is written by the winners we must remember not to overlook the stories of the oppressed.
Maquiladora is the debut album from Boston-based progressive rock band Killer Cortez, a two-piece ensemble that upends convention with its cavernous sound and ambitious psychedelic sonic-storytelling, bringing listeners on an dramatic journey through the beauty and tragedy of human experience.
