Las Corregidoras

Las Corregidoras

Las Corregidoras (Amandititita, Aurora y La Academia, Cecilia Toussaint, Ely Guerra, Natalia Lafourcade, Regina Orozco and Susana Zabaleta) were on tour together in Mexico, sharing the same stage in a public transportation bus. Yes, they performed in a street bus that was fully decked out with the same lighting and sound that you’d get at one of their concerts. We’re mad we missed that bus, but their performances are now up on Las Corregidoras’ Youtube Channel. Here are some of our favorites:

Julieta Venegas Remixes Hello Seahorse!

August 8, 2009

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!

Hello Seahorse!

Maybe Julieta doesn’t want us to forget about Hello Seahorse! too fast in this music culture with attention deficit disorder. We sure don’t want you to. So to refresh your memory, we’re throwing in some extra tracks by Hello Seahorse!

Song(s) of the Day: Selma’s Cover of Los Planetas’ “Cancion Para Ligar (O Para Que No Me Dejes)”

July 15, 2009

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.
