Download//O Tortuga “Cool”

By / September 15, 2014  


It was last summer that we gushed about O Tortuga’s first  EP, a urgent riff-laden effortlessly rad effort that served as an introduction to the band and the new emerging sounds of Mexico City’s DIY movement. In the year since then O Tortuga have done well to keep the momentum gaining, the boys of Pantitlán have transitioned from blogger gem to the festival circuit. Even with the newly found recognition these kids don’t seem to shift from what made them so “cool” in the first place. Their first streaks with more surf goodness as punchy riffs spark another dillsouned youth anthem “A mi me da igual nunca voy a ser genial”. Another 2 minute snippet of a song and reminder why O Tortuga are still the coolest kids of the Mexican-“Rock” scene.

Usually when presenting a new band we usually dedicate the first few lines with some-what facetious info about bio y todo esa madre, but for the latest Lo-Fi newcomers Los Angreverbs well, honestly we don’t know shit about these guys backround except for a handful of tweets and a  tumblr post that mirrors the now defunct but once cultish following of Los Mipsters. With only three tracks under their belt there is enough to suggest this group has enough onda to break into the onda. Following peers O Tortuga and Los Blenders, Los Angreverbs punch with quick riffs,crass indie-self-awareness and humor to suggest we may have another blogger favorite on hand.Download below 

Listen///Ceci Bastida “This is my Home”

By / October 7, 2013  


While the news of the government shutdown been clogging news-airwaves and twitter feeds and once again put the Immigration reform on the backburner for the foreseeable future, there actually has been some positive news coming out of California as Undocumented citizens can now get their driver license. With that news and the October 5th marches that occurred all around the country, we felt sharing the Ceci Bastida song to be especially timely(although anytime is a good time to share a Ceci Bastida song).

Mp3: Selma Oxor “Que Salir”

By / August 6, 2012  


Luxor, the former member of the highly-lauded Mexican rock band Bam Bam has made a comeback of sorts, creating new songs for her solo project Selma Oxor. Her latest effort is “Quiero Salir”, a salacious dark pop-song that is catchy as it is erotic. Luxor’s Vixen-like vocals take you into a red-lighted, smoke-filled room where she tell’s you her sexually tormented story with  heavy industrial beats and playful xylophone notes, this song is bordering somewhere between creepy and just plain sexy.  Scratch that this is just plain sexy.. Oigo la música del sexo, pues para mí no hay nada más que eso”

MP3: Apache O’Raspi & Velva Room “Pasos”

By / August 3, 2012  

Last year’s collaboration between Apache O’Raspi and Collateral Soundtrack on the song “Me Enamoro Cuando….” was one of the most uplifting, blissful  and nostalgic songs of 2011. Apache O’Raspi s intimate kitschy folk songs are crafted with supreme delicateness that cuts right though you. In the new song he collaborates with psych-pop group Velva Room to create another slice of folk sweetness.  Pasos, a gorgeous dance tale of a couple effortlessly  swaying  to the movement of the waves;  warm classical instrumentals fill the background  providing more depth compared to previous Apache O’Raspi songs. However  just as it’s the waves that move you though the sea; ultimately it’s Apache’s haunting-melancholy filled voice that pulls you though this song and to an elated state of being..  “Tu en mi oreja y yo en el mar los movimientos se dan sin pensar…Las olas nos llevaran”….
