Ghetto Blastin' MP3's and Ogg's
If you have a problem with the promotion of music I like on this site, please let me know before you sic your lawyers on me. I don't mean to step on your toes.
I've been neglecting this little bit of audio sharing space, apologies all around. Here's an oldie but goodie, a punk tune that I think encapsulates the punk sound perfectly: an important social message wrapped around some killer punk rhythms. It's called Tube Disaster by Flux of Pink Indians. Click here to download it. It's one of my favorites.
Many of the songs linked here can be found in a gmail account. You'll have to login using the account “quieromasmusica” and the password “download”. Find the title you are looking for, click on the email, and download the song.
We try to put up some different mp3's every once in awhile so we can share some of the great music that is out there.
Another flamenco tune to go with a recent blog post. By Chiqui de Jerez, titled Te Como La Cara.
Next up is an intriguing and mesmerizing song that I can't get out of my head: it's from the movie Vengo and is sung by Remedios Silva Pisa. It's quite difficult finding info on her but supposedly she was 14 when she sang for this recording and not much else is known. It's a song from the Gypsy tradition, which speaks about having no place to call your homeland, a theme that many an anarchist might appreciate! Click here to download "Naci en Alamo"!
around, we are heading way down south to Chile,
home of Makiza
an exceptional hip-hop
band with some interesting lyrics to boot. They seemed to have
disappeared for awhile but it turns out they just released a new album
last year with a new incarnation of the band. The song that has been
uploaded is one of their best hits "La Rosa de los Vientos", which is
overall a really together song, you can download the huge video from
their site as well. To get the mp3 you'll have to
to the account using "quieromasmusica" and "download", as mentioned
This following local band has been around for a little while but I've yet to mention them. They be called 8 bit, and though they currently live around Highland Park, they be robots from another planet! They have some funny ass songs that are on the cutting edge of technology, some are available from their website. I suggest you download Not Workin' or Eatin' Cat
You want something different? Then checkout the stuff from Inch Erectionists, an LA based consortium that puts out some odd and interesting songs on all types of subjects. I suggest you tune yer ears to Asshole Car, Stop Having Babies, or Psycho, which are my current faves. Though you'd do well to check out the other songs as well, it's a crazy grab bag of free crazy songs!
Okay, this time I'm putting up a personal favorite, a slow and meloncholy song by the master accordionist and all around musical genius Ramon Ayala and this song, “Tragos de Amargo Licor” is my all-time favorite, not just in it's genre, but across all music styles! Yes, sir, it's that good. It's a drinking song with the usual story of longing for a lost love, but the plaintive sincerity in which it's expressed can really bring tears to your eyes (assuming you understand spanish) but not to me, I'm strong and don't cry so easily! (*sniff, sniff*) You can download the mp3 HERE. And if you have an interest, check out the LYRICS HERE
This time we are putting up two new mp3's since they complement each other. They both deal with the concept and image of "Hollywood", a symbol which is more powerful then the actual geographic location. On the one hand we have Felix da Housecat with a song that touches on the myths of fame and fortune that the image of Hollywood conjures. Download "Madame Hollywood" HERE. Then we have Jurassic 5 with "LAUSD" which describes a much more realistic assessment of the sad place with the big famous sign. Dowload it HERE
This next supplement to our list of recommended mp3's is an entertaining and informative "song" by Cheech Marin, known for his tag-team comedy films with Tommy Chong. "Mexican-Americans" is a song that gives a tiny and odd, yet accurate, glimpse into the Chicano life, it ain't much but it's funny. Download the song HERE.
There is also another local band that may be of interest: they call themselves SLOWRIDER. You can check out what they sound like by downloading the "Don Ramon" Ogg at this link HERE I like the fact that they play on the EL CHAVO! theme (you know, the tv show) and their live stage show is a mix of all the characters. Chingones to the Max!
Some more Flamenco stuff, check out La vida es un rutina by Capullo de Jerez, one of my favorite songs right now. This is in Ogg Vorbis format, an open source equivalent to mp3 which is smaller and sounds better, in my opinion. Windows users can download the latest winamp, it supports ogg vorbis
Don't know what MP3 is? Yer fucked!
