"Do you appreciate my company?" Ava Luna frontman Carlos Hernandez yelps at the onset of the NYC crew's latest, Infinite House. The answer, generally, is yes. Though prone to sonic tantrums, unpredictable asides and general art-rock weirdness, there's plenty to love in Ava Luna's musical outpouring, which combines elements of Captain Beefheart blues-rock, R&B and new-wave funk into something that exhibits a magnet-like pull on songs like "Tenderize" and the lilting, lovely "Roses and Cherries."
