Featured: Carla Morrison – “No Viniste” (Natalia Lafourcade Cover)
Unreleased, Independiente

Carla Morrison just had a big boost in popularity as her song “Esta Soledad” from her recently digitally-released debut Aprendiendo a Aprender was selected as iTunes’ Free Download of the Week in both iTunes Mexico and iTunes Latino. She has received raves from just about any corner of the blogosphere, which can also be said from the amount of artists who have expressed their admiration towards the ‘new girl on town.’ Recently, she opened a show for Natalia Lafourcade and like most of us, Lafourcade became an instant fan. Later on we had them singing Lykke Li’s “Dance Dance Dance” together and collaborating at Teatro Fru Fru for Natalia’s official presentation of Hu Hu Hu.

Their friendship has endured so much that Natalia is helming Carla’s next album as a producer. We’re probably not supposed to say this but we’ve heard the first finished song from it, and it took our breath away. The album will be titled Mientras Tu Dormías and although it was originally planned as an EP, it has naturally extended into a full length feature. The album will also get a helping hand from Leon Polar, the ex-Sin Bandera singer who is winning our hearts with his support towards new emerging talent, from Pedro Piedra to Torreblanca. But enough said, let’s get to our feature.

On her recent visit to Phoenix, Carla Morrison decided to record Natalia Lafourcade’s “No Viniste”, and it sounds great. Perhaps the cover is a bit too loyal to the original, but it’s so beautiful it gives us goose bumps. Natalia just turned 26 years old, we’re sure this cover is one of the most precious gifts she received this year.

I'm a huge Lafourcade fan, and this popped up through a google alert,

Carla, i'm your fan now!!

honestamente creo que no aporta nada,
carla tiene una voz hermnosa
pero demasiado engolosinada,
demasiado como Natalia
sin tener esa naturalidad =(

agree with ángel, yo no soy tan sensible para decirlo por eso mejor no digo nada, pero sí agree.

hacer un cóver es algo tan polémico e imposible como traducir un poema...

muchos tratan (o tratamos) de alejarse ló más posible del original... un poco para tratar de adaptar la canción (o tema) a su propio estilo, cambiarla... agregar o aportar algo, como dicen... otro poco, pues justo porque el riesgo de hacerlo muy parecido es grande... es el riesgo de ponerse en el terreno de las comparaciones, de irritar susceptibilidades de quien ama demasiado las versiones originales...

vamos

es algo que yo nunca haría, por que me daría mucho miedo...

carlita tiene muchos pantalones (además de esa voz prodigiosa que me da una envidia de la piorrr)

y creo que si lo hizo muy cercano al original, fue también por respeto y por cariño (tanto a la canción como a natalia misma)...

aplaudo su versión...

y creo que escucharemos MUCHO de carla en esta década! :)

A D O R O esta canción!!! De hecho, me gusta mucho más con la voz de Morrison, aunke OBVIO es una de las mejores canciones ke Lafourcade ha grabado. Creo ke la palabra para describirla es: D U L C E !!!

...HOT GOSSIP!
