California Brake

I’ve been MIA from here for the last two weeks, because I was in California visiting family, friends, and driving around the desert and the coast. I had a lot of fun while I was out, but I am back. During the break I realized that I seriously need to look into what is happening in the world of Latinamerican music. One of my uncles kept playing the station that he used to listen to while he lived in Los Angeles (about 17 years ago) and I bet they are still playing the same songs they played when he lived there (It’s K. Love, yo. It’s horrible.) And that got me thinking that I have no idea what is new, and most importantly, good in the work of La Música en Español. Granted, I’m not completely in the dark, I know who Pitbull is and I’m aware of how certain individuals have completely ruined bachata. But I have no idea what is going on with rock and pop in Latin America. So I will be doing some research on that.

Tomorrow I’m headed to Tulsa, OK for a WALK THE MOON show, so I will do a bit of a preview of the show later today. In the meantime I wanted to leave you with two songs that I kept replaying while in California.
