If you missed any of the past week’s Tunes du Jour, fear not, they’re all here in one playlist: new releases from Le Parody, Bomba Estéreo, Quixosis, Sr Ortegon, and Communions.
You can also catch up here with the month’s best selections on this Soundcloud playlist. Easy access. I’m here for you. Enjoy.
The photo? Part of a small marching band that took part in in an anti-government May Day Parade in Quito last month. Great masks, no?
Monday June 22 –Le Parody – “Saetas En El Aire”
Mildly complex, thoughtful, and dreamy – the perfect soundtrack for a long dreamy bus ride.
Tuesday June 23 – Bomba Estéreo – “Mar (Lo Que Siento)”
Wednesday June 24 – Quixosis – “Aguas”
Pleasant intoxication for a summer’s day.
Thursday June 25 – Sr Ortegon – “My Island” (ft Pana Black)
Beats from the Cali streets.
Friday June 26 – Communions – “Summer’s Oath”
This one took back with a fresh look at a summer 32 years ago.
Attention musicians, record labels or fans: Do you have a suggestions for a Tune du Jour?
Each weekday at noon Eastern Time Piran Café spotlights a new or recently released song from smaller or independent labels. Suggestions are most welcome and encouraged – get in touch. Please include press info about the song /album /artist, and links to video, audio or both.
CURRENT FOCUS: Since I’ll be based in Colombia through the latter half of August, I’d love to focus as much as I can during that time on artists from South America. As is obvious from this list, exceptions will always be made. Just trying to keep it local. Thanks!
