Yes, Aurelio falls directly into the world-music bin. But his Sub Pop/Next Ambiance release, Laru Beya, which hits stores Tuesday, transcends the Putumayo stereotype, and will not be remembered as a fetish property for those in search of the international sound/cause/taste du jour. It will be remembered as a pop record accessible to anyone with an appreciation for melody and strong hooks; for those who cannot dance, but like to shake it anyway.
Aurelio plays a 7:30 p.m. set at the Triple Door. Tickets to the all-ages show are $23.
