mucha música Monday

The Black Angels: Don't Play with Guns
New album releases in April. Cannot. Wait.

Patti Smith covers Nirvana: Smells like Teen Spirit
I feel stupid. And contagious.
Smells Like Teen Spirit by Patti Smith on Grooveshark

Iron Butterfly: Manhunter Came across this interview with John Cale of the Velvet Underground. Thought I'd share. "Whoever wants to sing a Nico song has to approach it from the right point of view. There’s a lot of love for Nico on that stage, they all really appreciated her for being a songwriter, not because she was the gorgeous member of the Velvet Underground. It’s a different approach."

Salt Cathedral (formerly Il Abanico) : Take Me to the Sea
Bill Yonson: Tropical This Chihuahua-born musicias brings a sunny-electro-trop pop dose of an upcoming summer. Beach sunset optional.

Milkman ft. Gil Cerezo & Billy Mendez: Oro In the late 90's I was pretty crazy about the latin/techno-music Kinky from Monterrey, México. The frontman of the band collaborated with a few other well known dudes for this single. Gil used to date Mexican music goddess Ely Guerra awhile back and he was at her show at the Red Devil Lounge on Polk street in 2005. Not sure what the style of this new project is, a bit wacky and the lyrics are rather silly but fun.
Here is the beautiful Ely. I took this foto at her show at the Independent, in 2010: Sweet & sour, hot y spicy

    1. Glad to hear that. And to hear from you, as always <3

  2. Okay, now I feel REALLY old... 45 years ago, when I was mere lad of about 20 I had just arrived in Marin from Monterey and my uncle poured me a tall gin and tonic and played all 10 minutes of the Iron Butterfly piece for me. I didn't know WHAT to think. It took a while but I quickly learned how to loosen up a bit. Eventually I learned to loosen up a whole lot. Some pieces of me, like my brain, just floated away, never to be seen again.

    1. Donald, this makes me smile so much. That's an awesome story +thanks so much for sharing -- I super love hearing moments like that.
      Now your uncle wasn't Alan Watts.. was it?
