Charli XCX and Rosalía in the record news of the week

The British Charli XCX publishes Crash, a fifth album with which she continues How I’m feeling now (2020), an album with which she was nominated for the Mercury Prize. It featured collaborations with Rina Sawayama on ‘Beg for you’ and Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek on ‘New shapes’, two of the previews. We stay to present it with Baby, a good example of a work that revolves around sex, and among whose credits we also find AG Cook, Oscar Holter, Digital Farm Animals, Ian Kirkpatrik, Jason Evigan, Ariel Rechtshaid and Oneohtrix Point Never, among others. .It is curious because Charli XCX and Rosalía have been the last two musical protagonists of the American television program Saturday Night Live. The Spanish singer publishes her third album, Motomami, surrounded by great expectation. Created from the objective of abstracting from the commercial side or fashions, as an evolutionary and perfectionist process, recording the voices many times, with few first takes remaining in the final result. The Weeknd collaborated on the first single, ‘La Fama’, although for the playlist we chose Saoko, which is a nod to the song of the same title by Wisin with the collaboration of Daddy Yankee. A great Spanish pop-rock talent, Marcos Cao, known especially for being the leader of Julia’s smile, and with other musical projects such as the Billy Boom Band and DIVA Banda, although the bulk of the musicians that accompany him is the same. Tomorrow Better is his second solo album, an album produced together with Carlos Ares (Roi Méndez, Paula Cendejas). Marcos: “I have lived the whole process with the illusion of a child who sings and records for the first time at the limit of his possibilities”. Among the advances we are left with La rompiente, one more example of the sensitivity and genius of the musician. A new path for Juanito Makandé in Synthetic Folklore, a title in which he already gives clues about his research work with synthesizers. “It hasn’t been easy to rescue those eighties sounds and mix them with the language of the drawers, the clapping and the flamenco guitar”, he commented. The first preview was El tango de las ratas with Eddie Coopermen. Also in circulation these days are new records by Peter Doherty with Frédéric Lo, GAYLE (EP), Cypress Hill, Brad Mehldau, Midlake, Walls, Feeder and Weezer (EP); and reissues by Becky Hill, Keith Richards and Boney M..
