Coque Malla

A Revolution with a Name of its Own

A natural stage animal, Coque Malla is also the author of some of the best songs in Spanish recorded in recent decades. Although he doesn’t believe in it, his latest album is touched by what is commonly known as maturity.

La Bien Querida

Spells of Love and Music

La Bien Querida is back with ‘Brujería’, an album that works as a magic spell in many ways. One of the leading figures in the Spanish alternative scene –she also has a cameo in the 3rd season of Spanish TV series ‘Paquita Salas’—, with this album she is celebrating her first decade in music.

People First

Their new album, 'Salto al color', is out today, and it comes with their usual gifts—coherence, quality and love for life.

Limón Jr.

Music in His Genes

About to release 'Solid', his debut album and probably one of the hits this season, Javier Limón Jr. is as scant with words as he is lavish with creativity. Because, as he says: "I would rather give people lots of music to listen to than plenty to talk about.” Like father, like son.

Rodrigo Cuevas

The Unusual Folkie

He calls himself an agitator. What Asturian Rodrigo Cuevas wants and works for is a reappraisal of the values transmitted by Spanish folklore. And he does so sporting a provocative look combining tights, suspenders and his inseparable wooden shoes. Who said folklore has to be boring?
