Our Christmas gift to you! A spontaneous 3-track release of all new songs inspired by the re-discovery of our song “La Luna” and the support from our friend Arturo Ulises who kindly asked us to release this song. Enjoy and expect more new music in 2013!
We were invited by our good friend Algodón Egipcio to remix one of his songs from his awesome debut album and we are so happy to let you know that the album “Los Remixes de La Lucha Constante” is out right now on Lefse Records.
Get our remix plus remixes by other awesome artists like Teen Daze, Los Pilotos (members of Los Planetas), Pacheko + more!
Mushroom Pillow (Spain) just released this collection of remixes of “Toro” by El Columpio Asesino. We were invited to this project along with other great acts/bands that we like such as Algodón Egipcio, María y José, and Rey Pila! You can find this digital EP on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify. We took a different route for this one. Stream the song (courtesy of our friends from Revista Plástica) and check it out!
The aptly named blog (ran by Club Fonograma contributor Pierre Lestruhaut) Sue Girl Talk asked us to submit a mixtape of whatever we wanted so we put up an hour of music featuring a lot of new and old music that we like and a bunch of super personal favorites. It’s like travelling around the world à la that 90′s video by Deep Forest. Remember that one?
Hey guys we have two interviews up for your reading pleasure. One for Revista Plástica (Spain) and another for the e-zine Mi Abuela es Jazzista (México). It’s a fun read and if you don’t know Spanish maybe this is the time to test that nifty googly translator you have lying around. Click on the images to download.
Two new songs for the spring. They are “El Medio Contenido” and “Catorce”. Both songs were written in Brooklyn and Paris during a very long summer that took us to many places and found is in between many spaces. The single is released by the awesome netlabel Beko DSL! You can download both songs at http://www.beko-dsl.com (also feel free to explore their discography; it’s packed with a lot of great music)
Our friends from the Sao Paulo based collective Si No Puedo Bailar just released this compilation where artists from all over Latin America pay tribute to great Brazillian singer-songwriter Adriana Calcanhotto. We were invited by Rodrigo Maceira to take one of her songs and make it our own. We went with “Sudoeste” and had a lot of fun recording and reimagining her song. A lot of other good friends appear in this compilation such as Mima who is also from Puerto Rico. You can download the compilation for free over at http://www.naomoromais.com (to find the link just keep scrolling to the right!) and if you are lucky and live in / or visit Brazil you may get the vinyl version of the album for free at one of their shows.
Live video of Camila at El Teatro en el El Museo del Barrio (NYC). The building used to be an orphanage decades before. Some say that you can still listen to children’s laughter at night. This was a special interactive Balún concert for children and adults that incorporated live visuals, instrument making and audience participation. For this song we were joined by Julio Cesar Morales from the experimental puppet theater company Y No Había Luz (http://http://www.ynohabialuz.com/). Thanks so much to Armando Croda for putting this video together!
Club Fonograma just recently released their 10th compilation of the Fonogramáticos series and it’s a very special one! Bands from all over Latin America and Spain covering each other. We fell in love with Pau y Sus Amigos’ “Fiesta Permanente” upon first listen and decided that this was a great chance to show them how much we liked their song. So we did! A lot of other great artists appear in this compilation and you can download it for free!
Also our song “Camila” has been reaching new ears and getting reviews. We are very happy that this song in particular is spreading out more as we feel it synthesizes the sound that we want to capture and that better defines the group as of now. The good people over at Life: Aquatic, International Tapes, Rocktantra, and Flashlight Tag had some beautiful words about the song and we can’t be more happy. And as a bonus Club Fonograma included the song in their Halloween Mixtape.
Our friend minusbaby (8bitpeoples) asked us to do a remix for him and it’s officially out! You can download for free the EP called “Left Remixes, Pt. 2″ from the Free Music Archive. Tim Koch (Ghostly) and Turing’s Apple also contributed remixes to this project. Show your 8-bit love and get this today.
