One spin through “Imaginaries” should convince listeners that Quetzal is anything but a museum piece. The group’s first studio release since “Die Cowboy Die” in 2006, it’s a typically genre-agnostic mezcla of rock, cumbia, neo-’80s-style R&B, Cuban charanga, Brazilian pandeiroand the lilting son jarocho of Mexico’s Veracruz state, wrapped in lyrics that are both poetic and infused with political passion.
