Mariachi Rock!

November 20, 2009

I’m in love with these Mariachi renditions of Marvin Gaye, The Cure, and Annie Lenox. This album is something else—a really good dream come true.

Oh, heck while we’ve featured Juana Molina‘s theme to film, Rudo Y Cursi, why not feature actor Gael Garcia Bernal‘s campy take on Cheap Trick‘s “I Want You To Want Me”? Bernal’s Latino hipster cumbia-norteño version is genius. Sure, Bernal can’t sing, but I swear I hear a little bit of Juan Gabriel. It’s not the first time Bernal has sung before, he dueted with Devendra Bernhart on the soundtrack to Michel Gondry’s The Science of Sleep. On “Queireo Que Me Quieras” Bernal is actually in character as Tato Verduzco, the talented soccer player who truly wants to be a music star. Below is the wonderful video featured in the film as well as the original Cheap Trick version. The Rudo Y Cursi soundtrack does boast an interesting English version of Cheap Trick’s tune by Los Odio and Juan Son (also below). Oh, enjoy.

Song of The Day: Juan Son’s “Las Hadas”

Who is Juan Son? Here’s what you need to know: Juan Son was the lead singer of experimental indie rock band Porter. From 2004-2008 the band released the 2005 EP, Donde Los Ponys Pastan and their full-length, 2007’s Atemahawke.  Both records garnered attention and a small following but the band called it quits after performing at Coachella Music Festival in 2008. Juan Son took the time to develop his own solo work resulting in a set of demos and this year’s Mermaid Sashimi. His debut record is already garnering rave reviews for its ethereal vocal-orchestral stylings. He’s collaborated with Latin Alternative legend Julieta Venegas and was most recently heard on Natalia Lafourcade‘s Hu Hu Hu as well as the Voy A Explotar and Rudo Y Cursi soundtracks. This guy is someone to watch. No, really, download the song and watch his music video for “Nada.”
