Every week, I round up new music I’ve come across via the YouTubes and Soundclouds my social media networks are sharing. The only criteria for this playlist is that the songs compel people to share them. It’s music the internet spits.
1. Mala Rodriguez
The Andalusian rapper just turned 33 but she is as angsty as ever.
2. Sister Rosetta Tharpe
My Facebook friend Carolina Gonzalez shared a video of Rosetta and she blew me away. Why hadn’t I heard of Rosetta before? She is everything (and influenced the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lewis).
3.Los Super Elegantes
Major personal #throwback. Everyone’s favorite original Latino hipsters released this pop gem 10 years ago. I’m old, thanks.
4. Arctic Monkeys
OK, no one is really sharing this now since it came out in August, but I like to blast it in my car.
