Pan Caliente: Los Punsetes

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 …

Fresh from the summertime festival circuit, including the acclaimed Bestival on the Isle of Wight, the …

hozier

Jason Bentley has his eye on Irish singer-songwriter Hozier before SXSW, when he seemingly started taking the world by storm.
Early in the year, he included the 24-year-old artist in a list for Wired about 10 bands he expected to blow up in 2014 and then hosted his U.S. live radio debut immediately following his breakout performances at the famed Austin music festival.
In anticipation of …

Four Songs You Should Hear Right Now: Sondre Lerche, Christian Gregory, Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Barr Brothers

The Barr Brothers – “Love Ain’t Enough”
This one is a doozy – it’s so beautifully dreamy.
The song is so good I don’t want to write too much but, man, that falsetto right before the chorus really just cuts through.
Proving once again that love is the best songwriting topic of all time.

The Montreal-based band (which we first wrote about back in 2011!) recorded some of …

The Afghan Whigs Cover the Police “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic”

AfghanWhigs-2014-2ndShot

It’s not surprising that when the Afghan Whigs take on the Police, the results are sexy and a little dangerous.
They played their version of the 1981 hit “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” during their Morning Becomes Eclectic session and it was everything a cover should be –a really inspired interpretation with a dark twist that is pure Afghan Whigs.
I’ve seen versions of …

I may be a little late to the game as I’m just discovering Hiss Golden Messenger on their 5th album, “The Lateness of Dancers”, out now on Merge Records. It’s the band’s first record for the famed label and I fell fast and hard on my first listen.
The fact that I warmed to it so quickly doesn’t surprise me since it features Phil and …
