Digital music makes singles accessible, but the
art of writing an album you could listen to in
its entirety is fading. Thankfully there’s a rock
band keen on keeping the tradition alive.

La Oreja De Van Gogh (Van Gogh’s Ear) are 5 musicians giving
life to the practice of crafting a record you can listen to from
cover to cover. Experts at shaping sonnets into soundtracks,
their skill has won them MTV’s “Best Spanish Artist” and a
Latin Grammy for “Best Pop Album.” Their career has spun 20
years and succeeded in selling nearly 10 million albums, but
that doesn’t mean the band is stopping anytime soon. Their
tour of South America ends just as their U.S. one begins. Catch
them live next month on Mar. 14 at the Fillmore Miami Beach;
