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.
