Gotta thank our music-friends at Club Fonograma for this one here. Who knew Julieta Venegas had it in her to remix? Maybe it’s just that she likes and respects Hello Seahorse! as much as Mi Casa does. We don’t know, but she does a fine job remixing this track. Like the original, this remix of “Bestia” is a little dark, yet Julieta manages to bring some light into the song with hand claps and a few noise makers.
Hello Seahorse!–I Wont Say Anything (Video (Note: music starts at 12 seconds))
Today’s song of the day comes from an unsigned band from Mexico called Selma. While searching for a video of one of Spain’s most respected Indie-Rock bands, Los Planetas, I found this cover of “Cancion Para Ligar.” There’s nothing wrong with Los Planetas’ version, but Selma’s feels just right. The title of the song translates to something like, “song to get you to love me (or so you won’t leave me).” Well, Selma’s version sounds like a response—like a sweet voice at the other end of the phone—even though it’s just a cover. Selma give it a bit more of an edge, but still keep it a song to get someone to fall for you (or so that someone doesn’t leave you). We’re giving you Los Planeta’s version from their album, Unidad de Desplazamiento. Selma have only released this cover on YouTube, so take a listen below. And If you like them, visit their Myspace page for more. Mi Casa likes Selma, so we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything from them.
