Top 5 Artists You Should Be Listening To This Week
This is the weekly musical selection of AL DÍA
1. El Cuarteto de Nos - “Apocalipsis Zombie”
We had previously recommended a sample of this fabulous Uruguayan group's latest production, but the song that bears the name of their album, "Apocalipsis Zombie", is not only proof of its innovation but also an ode to the cybernetic revolution. "I sought in the composition to do something different, to stand from another perspective at a musical and thematic levels," said Roberto Musso, author and frontman of the band.
2. Cerati y Melero - Vuelta por el Universo
We have also decided to recommend some of those songs of yesterday that are indispensable jewels. Such is the case of the Colores Santos album (1992) written and composed by the Argentine musicians Gustavo Cerati and Daniel Melero, in collaboration with Flavio Etcheto and Carola Bony. This album was the first experimentation of the late Soda Stereo vocalist with electronic music and represents a milestone in Latin American musical history.
3. McEnroe - Un Rayo de Luz
McEnroe is one of the groups of Spanish-American music that you must keep an eye on. Formed in 2002 in Vizcaya (Spain) by Ricardo Lezón, Gonzalo Eizaga, Jaime Guzmán and Eduardo Guzmán, McEnroe is the voice of the current Spanish indie pop. "Un Rayo de Luz" was one of their singles that came to light in 2016.
4. Perotá Chingò - Seres Extraños
"Seres Extraños" is part of the last production of this Argentine duo that combines folklore with the music of the world, in a proposal of "journey" and fusion of all the shades that make up the southern cone, Venezuelan joropo and reggae.
5. Xoel López - Tierra
We rarely talk about how important the influence of Latin American music has been on European trends. This is the case of Xoel López (A Coruña, 1977), one of the most important artists of the new Spanish song, who left Spain to find a new style in America. After traveling much of the continent, he decided to take root in Buenos Aires. Lopez returned to Europe with an album and a "Caravan" of new sounds under his arm. "Tierra" is part of that production entitled "Atlántico".
