*** 1/2 Aterciopelados, "Caribe Atomico," BMG. This record of bossa nova cloaked in velvety electronica finds the Colombian rock en espan~ol band trimmed down to its two key members: singer Andrea Echeverri and bassist Hector Buitrago. What surprises here is the growth shown by Aterciopelados in the two years since the release of their last album. The songs brim with ambiguous melodic lines and oblique loops and samples, with Echeverri's voice floating hypnotically over the quiet soundscapes.

Various Artists "Sounds Eclectico" (KCRW/Nacional Records) * * * * THIS disc of Latino-themed sessions from the "Morning Becomes Eclectic" show on KCRW-FM (89.9) could serve as a cool primer to Latin Alternative music and its many permutations -- from the lounge-rock of Los Amigos Invisibles and the haunting acoustic pop of Jorge Drexler to L.A. favorites Los Lobos and Ozomatli. But the collection is simply indispensable for serious Latin rock fans.

That was a possible reaction after witnessing Aterciopelados' powerhouse performance Thursday at the Palace, the veteran Colombian group's first L.A. concert since singer Andrea Echeverri gave birth to a baby girl last year.
