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.
