Film director Robert Rodriguez is a busy man.

For starters there is Machete, his newest film out this week.

See the trailer:

This week he's also re-released the album Mexican Spaghetti Western from 2007 that was performed by his band Ching-n (the name is a Spanish slang word that cannot be published).

Over the weekend we offered the entire album as a preview stream. This week we're spotlighting the four tracks that were added to the original album and are used in the new film: "1-800 Hitman", "Cascabel", "El Rey" and "Machete Theme Deluxe" (featuring Tito and Tarantula).

Rodriguez’s cinematic vision is as unique his musical groove. With both a new film and new music we get a chance to experience both.
