Y la Bamba drops LP “Lupon” + single “Juniper”

Y la Bamba – “Juniper” mp3

What if a female Thom Yorke had an epiphany while crossing the border between Mexico and a sort of Disney-fied Catholic heaven in the Salton Sea? You might find it sounds rather like this. A strange and wonderful record by Y la Bamba produced by The Decemberists’ Chris Funk. Mexico native singer-songwriter Luz Elena mined these songs from much travel and adventure in India, New Zealand, California and beyond. She finally landed in Portland, Oregon where she recorded them all. Out this month on the Tender Loving Empire label. Brilliant and courageous work.
