Pan Caliente: Kanaku y El Tigre

Posted May 14, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 1,238 views]

When the entire blog community all across South America, hails your debut as one of the best records of the year, it raises insurmountable expectations for a simple Peruvian band trying to play feel good American, folk music in Spanish.
One would assume that the “sophomore slump” or “curse” is pretty much inevitable unless… unless you’re incredibly grounded and have more to offer than just …

If you must belt out “salud señoritas,” and “gracias amigos” to commemorate a very small battle that happened in the state of Puebla in 1862 (all while consuming massive amounts of margaritas), then you might as well do it in style with a killer soundtrack in the background!
We celebrate Mexico’s once victory over French forces with this proper Cinco de Mayo – Party Playlist… …

60 tigres

New Music is pretty much what we live for over here at Pan Caliente.
And when it mysteriously comes from a band that was rumored to have split up back in 2012 it’s even more exciting.
60 Tigres, a band that formed in the musical mecca of Monterrey, Mexico, about 9 years back, returns with a new album and tour dates to boot.
“Hay Más”, the lead …

Pan Caliente: SXSW X Musica Indie (SXSW Preview)

Posted March 5, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 1,508 views]

Grab a pair of comfortable shoes, pack a light sweater, and schedule that industry lunch at Ironworks early in the week, so you can upload your BBQ pic hashtagged SXSW before the rest of the music industry shows up in Austin.
Cynicism aside, SXSW is one of my favorite music conferences, because the possibility of discovering and hearing new bands is virtually limitless.

With just the right …

Pan Caliente: Top 5 Albums You May Have Missed in 2014

Posted December 23, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,648 views]

1. Buscabulla – “Buscabulla” (EP)
Not exactly an album, but with 4 deliciously haunting tracks, this Nuyorican duo’s EP, is a standout that didn’t get the undivided attention it deserved.
If you think it sounds too much like Blood Orange in Spanish,  take it up with Dev Hynes, who actually produced the record for Buscabulla. A must listen.
RIYL: Blood Orange, Banks, Grimes

2. Florian Droids – “Osos …

The time for ghosts, ghouls and sexy anything & everything is here.
Ahhh yes… Halloween.
Of the “holidays” or celebrations, Halloween is one of the few, much like Christmas, that actually has a soundtrack.
For me, my playlists are peppered with tons of great music of the macabre.
Oingo Boingo, The Cramps, The Misfits, Rocky Horror cast recordings, and any other eerie sounding bands that inspire the candy …

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?
If bands that gain prominence singing in other languages are faced with the gut wrenching …

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 …
