Ride This: The Covers E.P.

Earlier this year, Los Lobos were joined by a gaggle of impressive guest artists and admirers on The Ride. On Ride This, they return the favor by covering seven of their favorite tracks by said friends, including pieces from Tom Waits, Richard Thompson, Elvis Costello and others. The band deftly rearranges the dynamics of each song — at one high point supersizing the main riff of Thompson's "Shoot Out the Lights"; the often exquisite results reveal new dimensions in every cut.
