Mundo 10: The Guilty Pleasures of Stone Cold Fox

We have long stated that we would not share the music of immensely popular artist with two exceptions – a) they were part of a great compilation created in memory of a great artist or band or b) they collaborated with other artists to form a super-group worth everyone’s attention.

Mundo: Ten Songs Filled with Stardust (by Sounds of Sputnik)

We pride ourselves in discovering and uncovering great music, wherever on the planet it may be found.

Mundo: Five Late-Night Specialties (by Twin Haus)

One of the unforeseen developments in music since the turn of the century is the rise of post-rock. While the genre has its originals in the mid-90s, the combination of guitar-driven rock, electronica, ambient, and prog-rock started become “trendy” in the early 2000s with the emergence of bands like Sigur Rós, The Amazing, Explosions in the Sky, etc. The post-rock […]

Mundo: They’re Not From There?

“What? They’re not from there?” Ever ask that question to a friend or even mutter it to yourself when learning a band isn’t from the city or country in their name? Where you really believed the band was from that European country but actually is in a far-off corner of the United States? Or you were thought this great band […]

Mundo – Perfect Harmony

Mundo – Perfect Harmony

Do you ever daydream about musical combinations that could be just magical? We’re not talking Donny & Marie type pairings (those two are siblings) or Beyonce and Jay-Z (they’re married), but collaborations that would just be like perfect harmony yet have not happened yet. We often think about it when listening to a song or an album and say to ourselves, […]

Each month, we’ll be looking at group of albums celebrating a watermark anniversary. Last month, we looked at albums celebrating their 50th anniversary.

The year marked the start of the era of polyester and hippies in bell-bottoms […]

The Who are in the middle of their 50th anniversary tour, and that had us thinking about some of the more landmark records celebrating major anniversaries this year. 1965 was a very interesting year for music – The Beatles were at the height of their popularity, and bands like The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones started making names for […]

Mundo Special – UK Invasion Edition

Today marks the start of the long weekend in Canada. For some reason, Canadians still celebrate Victoria Day in honour of Queen Victoria, who was born on May 24. For ease, every third Monday of May her birthday is celebrated, which this year is quite early (May 18). Canadians also call it May 2-4 long weekend for obvious reasons. To […]

Mundo Musique: Puna

Mundo Musique: Puna

Since it’s World Cup time, Ben and I want to feature more bands from outside North America, and today I’m featuring the dreamy and hypnotic Puna from Lima, Peru.  Their instrumental shoegaze is ambient, experimental, and truly captivating. And since it’s mostly instrumental, you won’t miss out on anything because of a language difference. They released a single in 2013 […]
