Classes started this week. My god, I'm studying marketing and yet, I feel so tired... what a shameful person I've become... I need to start jogging or doing some physical activities.
This is post number 100th (I'm woohooing behind the screen). Didn't thought we were going to make it this far, I'm deeply grateful. Thank you.

There's two new members at the blog: Squashed, whom you've already met and who sometimes writes for this blog. And Gil, a friend from Sonora who hasn't posted yet but he's very supportive of the mexican indie scene and I like that. He'll be probably writing in spanish... and well, he hasn't told me that much of the material he'll be posting around here but thrust me, he has a fine ear, and sometimes, he makes music so I guess he's as obsessed about good tunes as anyone around here.

I'm off to the coffeeshop, see you tomorrow. If your gypsy heart is on fire I think you'll enjoy the next selections:

Lhasa de sela - la celestina
Devotchka - such a lovely thing
Devendra Banhart - luna de margarita
Paul Duncan - you look like an animal
Laura Veirs - fire snakes
Jolie Holland - sascha
Bia - coeur vagabond
Coralie Clement - samba de mon coeur qui bat

    Yay! A track from hometapes. I was asking Eagle about posting something from his label on his post. As far as exercise, walk everywhere, that's what I do. Then you can tell people you're opposed to the use of petroleum like Mark Wahlberg's character in I Heart Huckabees!

    If anybody still awake,

    I've been trying to listen to this girl song. But apparently her server is misconfigured, and I keep being dropped half way.

    from the pieces I got, She sounds VERY good. (she is a new comer. She sounds a little like Lucinda williams mized with Hope Sandoval

    Try downloading "Singing Brigade" (if somebody got it down in one whole piece, please share...)


    Her and Jenny Lewis. They both will make it big sooner or later. Incredible voice, amazing phrasing and... sexy. (okay the last one has nothing to do with music.. but)

    Hey squashed I didn't got any problems while downloading... cool songs, it does sound like lucinda and Sandoval at some points. What do you mean by share, do you want me to upload them?

    Kahlo, me alegra muchisimo! No les digas a los que hablan ingles pero de este lado del blog eres la que mejor me cae, pero shh...
