About 2 years ago I got the chance to interview Julian Casablancas with his band
Julian Casabalancas + the Voidz.
I must say, interviewing Julian and the boys is definitely in my Top 5 interviews!
Well, Julian is also the frontman of one of the most important rock bands of my era, I’m talking about
. The Strokes
The Strokes began in 1998 and they’re from New York City. They have 5 studio albums and will bring out an EP called
Future, Present, Past very soon.
They’ve released a few audios that’ll be featured on their upcoming EP.
Have a listen to them, here!
Threat of Joy
London post-punk band
White Lies (formerly known as Fear of Flying) released their first track off their 4th (upcoming) album; a few hours ago. Friends,
The song is called
Take It Out On Me and it’s fantastic!
Have a listen to it here first!
A few weeks ago
The Polyphonic Spree came to Mexico to perform at Festival Marvin.
I sat down with Tim DeLaughter and Jennie from the Dallas based band to talk about Mexico, life in Texas, music, performing with David Bowie – Tim and I both got very emotional – and lots more.

Thanks a million to both Tim and Jennie, you guys are fantastic!

One of my favourite solo female artists,
MØ, recently released the second single off her latest album, Kamikaze.
Final Song is the name of the electropop artists latest tune.
A few months ago we heard the Danish singers first single off her second studio album,
(the song and name of the album are the same), and I don’t know what your opinion on the tune was/is, but I absolutely loved it! Kamikaze
The album was produced by Diplo (DJ, co-creator and lead member of Major Lazer and
St. Paul and The Broken Bones are a 6 piece soul band from Birmingham, Alabama, USA formed in 2012.
The band have released two EP’s and in February 2014, the band released their first album called
Half The City.
Call Me (off
Half The City)
Paul, Jesse, Browan, Andrew, Al and Allen will release their second studio album
Sea of Noise in September.
The upcoming album is a mix of old R&B, soul, funk and rock.
I mean, with that description of sound and after the stuff I’ve heard from the Alabama based band, I can honestly say that
Sea of Noise is going to be mental.
Check out the trailer for
Sea of Noise, here!
British soul singer and songwriter
Laura Mvula from Birmingham released her debut album Sing to the Moon in 2013.
In March 2014, Mvula re-recorded an orchestral version of her debut album in collaboration with the Metropole Orkest and conducted by Jules Buckley.
Laura’s second album
The Dreaming Room will be released in a few days… Ready for this??? June 17 2016!!!
Since hearing her back in 2013, I fell for her vibe. You might remember
? <3 Green Garden
Laura once mentioned that her influences include Lauryn Hill, Nina Simone, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu.
Phenomenal Woman is the second song we’ve heard off Mvula’s upcoming album.

Sam Knowles AKA
Karma Kid is a 21 year old Brit electronic dance music record producer and DJ.
I had the chance to hang out and meet Karma Kid a few months ago in Mexico when he came to DJ at a festival in Morelos.
This might sound cringe, but, apart from Sam being a really talented, passionate and hard worker, he’s really sweet and deep.
Love meeting people like that!
Check out his latest track called
Thru The Tundra ft. Aminé, here!

The video is beautiful, the song is cool, too!
