Marifé de Triana – Dolores, la de Valverde (1971)

Spectacularly glossy track from the sevillana Marifé de Triana, a copla singer and actress. Starts out sounding like ‘Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da’… then the horns come in, recalling a Herb-Alpert-style jam, and then BAM!!… Marifé arrives with a show-stopping vocal performance.

This track comes via a Mallorca-based music blog, Pick Up: Colección de discos. Don’t miss it if you like mid-century Spanish music!

MKRNI – Humedad

from Jumper (2011)

Watch the Chilean kids behind psychedelic electro group MKRNI (as in mac & cheese) bounce and gyrate to their garage organs. This is the stuff tropical dreams (and nightmares) are made of…

Keep an eye out for their new full length coming out in Diciembre, Playa Futuro. Til then, gorge yerself on MKRNI at their soundcloud.

Buscabulla | Caer

“ On the streets of Puerto Rico, buscabulla is slang for troublemaker. The two people behind the Brooklyn-based band Buscabulla, however, are rabble-rousers in name only. Together, girlfriend-boyfriend team Raquel Berrios and Luis Alfredo Del Valle make music that is 100% appealing: slinky, sexy, Spanish-language. They’ve been perfecting their signature sound—an irresistible, retro-tinged mix of psych, soul, Caribbean music and everything in between—for about three years.

The band won a contest to have their new EP produced by the artist also known as Blood Orange. Self-titled and out on Kitsuné, Buscabulla is the fateful combination of Dev Hynes’s deft touch and the band’s already developed, super-silky sound.”

La Muralla Verde by Enanitos Verdes

Today, I’m very nostalgic. I’ve been listening to non-stop Spanish rock, the kind that I was into when I was into middle school before I moved to the US. The good ol’ days of Spanish music. There was real rock and alternative, not only that pseudo rock songs that are really just over produced cheesy ballads. There was real substance and that “in your face”, DIY type of attitude that was so iconic of the music in the 90’s.  This is one of those fantastic songs, from those amazing bands. 

If you want the lyrics translated, hit me up and I’ll do a post.

Aurita Castillo y Su Conjunto – Si Me Quieres (Puya Guamalera)

from Festival con Aurita

This is like every little kid’s dream–to dance around, singing your favorite song, and then out of nowhere a band of grown-ups start playing along. In this case, they took the fantasy even further–they put it to record. And little Aurita really holds her own!

“1,2,3,4,5,6 
07:30 
Otro dia 
Misma feria 
Y no he dormido nada 
Pa’ variar 

Puro taxi ocupado 
Miro al cielo esta nublado 
Yo con prisa y sin bocado 
Y murphy me ha burlado 
Una vez mas 

Aqui voy, 
De malas pero voy 
Haciendo malabares pa’ pagar la renta de hoy 
Que venga mas, 
Yo aguanto mucho mas 
Cansada con hambre 
De buenas o malas 
Yo llego hasta el final 

Y si, resulta que si 
Que ahora cantan 
Tan afinaditos 
Cortesia de auto tune 

¿y que pasa si yo 
Olvido el tono 
De esta cancion? 
¿me querrias todavia o 
Cambiarias la estacion? 

Aqui voy, 
Algo insegura pero voy 
Haciendo malabares 
Pa’ pagar la renta de hoy 
Que venga mas 
Yo aguanto eso y mas 
Perdida, afinada 
Aunque desubicada 
Yo llego hasta el final 

(pa pa pa papa parara) [x2]
Y si me olvido de la letra 
Yo lo arreglo con un: 
(pa pa pa papa parara) [x2]
Ow ow uh uh uh 

Todo mundo mira 
En el espejo 
No les gusta su reflejo 
Y no les queda nada mas 
Que criticar a los demas 

¿y que pasa si hoy 
Buscamos un poco 
De comprension? 

Por lo que resta de este dia 
No habria discriminacion 

Aqui voy, 
Ingenua pero voy 
Haciendo malabares 
Pa’ pagar la renta de hoy 
Que venga mas 
Yo aguanto mucho mas 
Cansada con hambre 
De buenas o malas 
Perdida, afinada 
Aunque desubicada 
He llegado hasta el final.”
