Naked dancing butts of all descriptions shake it and don’t break it in this music video from Chilean synthpop band Astro. We don’t know about the Panda part, they just shout “panda” a lot. (Potentially NSFW semi-nudity, depending.)[Mas…]
POCHO’s crew of slackers, surfers, skaters and all-around SoCal party peeps missed this video when it came out in March, but when we started going through the tunes on the excellent new FREE Nacional Records Sampler, this track perked up our ears and made us look for a video.

Monterrey technorock superstars Kinky and an illuminated robot amigo shot this new video in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. (Despues Del After = After the After.)

Roots rock singer/guitar slinger and East Los homie (Downey) Dave Alvin sings a classic ode to America, folky roots, broken hearts, independence and Mexican kids shooting fireworks. Hey, baby, it’s the Fourth of July!
Girl In A Coma, the all-chica metal power trio from Texas, just released this surprisingly pop track One Eyed Fool. Girl in A Coma is sisters Nina (vocals/guitar) and Phanie Diaz (drums) and long-time friend, Jenn Alva (bass). Check it out! And if that’s not enough, we ran a cool video from the band in [...]
TGIF Music Video: Madness – Uno paso adelante. When La Chata skanks at the office, this is what she skanks to! Veteran English ska/2tone band Madness also recorded One Step Beyond, from their 1979 debut album, in Spanish, and here’s the proof. Rock esteady, Teddy! Original English version here:
People you know, situations you recognize, stuff you resemble, calles you cruise, stories you live — they’re all here in De la Calle, the super Spanglish new alt.cumbia video from San Antonio band Bombasta.
