Love it! This is from one of the Brazilian Nuggets comps, which are, for the most part, completely awesome.
If this were an American band covering this in English, I'd probably find it predictably "alternative." But Brazilian rockers are cuter, so this is much better.
Sigh. Nothing good can come from the mediocre covering the mediocre. Even in a foreign tongue.
Even though I've read what it was all supposed to mean, I still don't really get it.
This is freaky, It starts off with a Mexican Scott Walker/Rufus Wainwright vibe and jumps into garage psych. Que sorpresa!
This has more a sense of immediacy to me than the original. Or maybe I've just had too much tequila. (This track as well as the one above are from Mexican Rock and Roll Psych-Out, which rules.)
Apparently Latin American and/or Spanish grupos love Iggy. And who can blame them?
Yay for glitchy funk from Germany sung in Spanish!
Speaking of Selena, she is not above reproach! Chilean/Los Angelean post-punkers rework one of her big hits (the sole track today that was originally performed in Spanish) so you can mosh to it. Or do whatever dance people at Blink-182 concerts do.
*All songs featured today are not solely by Mexican performers, but there are a couple.
