With the release of La Bien Querida’s Romancero in the states (through Nacional Records) here comes another fanwave, we can hardly contain ourselves as we revision the album, an absolute masterpiece. As you might have heard, Julieta Venegas invited her to be the opening act at a few of her concerts in Mexico, where she has found a fan base of her own. Ana Fernandez-Villarde has also been announced as part of the Latin Alternative Music Conference to be celebrated in New York in a few weeks.
But let’s get into “Hoy Empieza Todo” (Sintonia para Hoy Empieza Todo), it’s a rare, virtually unknown song we got a few days ago and as expected, we’re digging it. Turns out this is part a series of compilations by Producciones Doradas (Tarantula, Internet2) that work around a concept, in this case to recreate and play homage to Radio 3, a well respected station in Spain that has been hit badly by the Internet. She shared the compilation with other Club Fonograma favorites including Joe Crepusculo, Extraperlo and Manos de Topo. Download the free compilation here.
