conquest

So once you’re at the top of the pops or gain a certain level of recognition, what’s left to conquer as an American band?
Sure you can have more and more radio hits and fan favorites. You can tour the world over and over. But what could a bigger challenge be?

Pan Caliente: Los Punsetes

Posted September 22, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 663 views]
la punsetes

I first became aware of Los Punsetes in 2010 when I was doing some research into the music scene in Spain. I’d come across a ton of bands attempting to continue the 80’s style electro-pop, popularized by bands like Alaska and Hombres G of the Movida Madrileña (the Madrilenian Scene).
While I understand it’s cultural significance and importance for the transition of the country, I’ve never been …

Pan Caliente Premiere: Sol Pereyra

sol pereyra by Silvana Pietronave

I first heard of Sol Pereyra in 2009, when I kept seeing @solsolito (her twitter handle) tagged by other musicians that I was currently listening to.
At a glance, there appeared to be yet another prominent, fan adored, female singer/ songwriter joining the ranks of Sariñana, Morrison, and Lafourcade.
Which at the time seemed great, but to be honest, the scene was saturated with songs about …

WC 20120602-1-650x291

It only comes around every four  years and the intrinsic pride for country that resonates with both the most passionate fanatics to the slightly fair-weathered of futbol fans… excuse me, soccer fans, is akin to, if not far more intense than the Olympics.
So in honor of the World Cup in Brazil getting under way today, we decided to curate a not so Pitbull/J-lo/Shakira-esque playlist …

On a random Friday night in February I end up at a 3rd floor walk up club in Mexico City, called Atlantico with 2 of my cousins. Toy Selectah of Control Machete fame is headlining this musky, vibed out, space deep in the middle of Mexico’s Centro Historico and kids are eagerly awaiting his presence. However, we are there to see my cousin’s friends …

Pan Caliente: Pedropiedra

Posted April 29, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,170 views]
pedro

Despite having graced stages like Vive Latino (twice) and Lollapalooza (Chile), Pedropiedra is that rare breed of musician that would rather spend his entire time recording in the studio than on tour performing for people.
However, his passive approach to performing and lack of interest in putting on a great show seem to have the opposite effect on massive crowds that I’ve seen gather to …
