The Forking.

art, Fun, Tunage

Dear friend, Cara, has been working on some art for this Mexico City musician Natalia Lafourcade for the past few months now. She sent me Lafourcade’s new jam and I loved it (though I’m not sure if I can post it here seeing as the album isn’t out yet and I don’t want to get my friend in trouble with Sony). Check out this jam that appears to be part of some sound track to a Mexican indie film:

This one’s pretty fun too:

She apparently started out doing nueva bossa nova type stuff, her new stuff sounds different though. Check out La 4 Estaciones del Amor (The 4 Seasons of Love), an instrumental EP. Very good, uplifting and, at times, sweetly sad stuff. Also, according to wiki, her name is French and means “the forking”, in reference to a road. If I were a music writer I’d point out how symbolic her name is in regard to her shifting musical styles. But I’m not. So I won’t.
