Los Punsetes – Alferez Provisional: A playful and minimalist video from our fav Spanish Punk outfit. It’s the first single from their forthcoming album and makes our anticipation of the new album grow even greater. Quick little production note: Pablo Diaz-Reixa aka El Guincho produced the video. Thanks to Leah for bringing it to our attention.
“Like we always do about this time!” Francisca Valenzuela – Esta soy yo: Another stand out video from this Chilean songstress! She rocked Austin last week, Los Angeles the week before at our Pre-SXSW showcase, and this weekend she will mesmerize audiences in Mexico City at Vive Latino.
”Like we always do about this time!“ Móveis Colonias de Acaju – O Tempo: Unbeknownst to us, this Brazilian ensemble makes some real clever videos!… oh and great music too. We’ve got to send huge thanks to listener Lucas for turning us on to this killer band… muito obrigado!
”Like we always do about this time!” Muchachito Bombo Infierno – La quiero a morir: The big news this week was that we finalized our lineup for SXSW. The even bigger news is that we secured one of our favorite acts from Spain! We’re not quite sure how many of the MBI will be present [...]
“Like we always do about this time!” Banda de Turistas – Cada dia: Our favorite gaucho, psychedelic rockers are back at it again!

”Like we always do about this time!” Hello Seahorse! – Un año quebrado (Vetiver Bong Remix feat Jessy Bulbo): There’s just something about HS! songs that makes them great remix subjects. In this case, “electroguapachoso” outfit Veriber Bong out of Mexico City took this moody, pop song and cumbia-tized it. “pi Pi Pi PI pi” Thanks [...]
“Like we always do about this time!” Anita Tijoux – Shock: We lead off this weekend with one of our favorite chilean mcs. Shock is a protest video in it’s rawest form. It features students and their supporters who are fighting for reforms of the chilean education system. It’s powerful and thought provoking. La educacion [...]
”Like we always do about this time!” Carla Morrison – Dejenme Llorar: A very literal interpretation of this beautiful ballad. Raw and intense… purging away 2011 with some tears and starting fresh in 2012.
Every weekend for the past two years, we’ve been recommending 3-4 music videos that we like on our “Banda Sonora for the weekend…” feature. It’s one of the more popular features on the blog and it’s personally my favorite. In 2011 we saw quite a growth of exploration in the visual arts from bands on [...]
“Like we always do about this time.” Francisca Valenzuela – En mi memoria: This tender ballad is the third single off her sophomore release, Buen Soldado. This video treatment is a perfect match for the lamentful lyrics. Perfect offering for reflecting this Holiday Season.
