The Mavericks are back. The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer that had emerged from Miami in 1989 is back. With a sultry debut that was equal parts innocence, intensity and vintage influences has reunited after a hiatus. Two decades have passed since The Mavericks’ poly-rhythmic brand of post-modern country gave the world “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down,” “Here Comes The Rain,” and “Dance The Night Away.” Getting back to being what they are underscores everything about The Mavericks’ return to form, from the ferocity of their playing, the singularity of their intent, and, the copious sense of exuberance that infuses every note of their music.
