Chikita Violenta On Blogotheque

One of our favorite finds of the year, Mexican band Chikita Violenta, recently appeared on the incredible La Blogotheque website.  The guys play intimate versions of songs from their recently released LP TRE3S which is currently streaming on Spinner BTW.  So check out the awesome live video/interview and see why we’ve jumped on this band’s fan wagon this year.

New Tunes from Chikita Violenta

Typically we think of Arts & Crafts as the label of Canada, but it seems that they’re really into NAFTA, as they’ve just picked up Mexican band Chikita Violenta.  In preparation for a crazy January, A&C has added Chikita’s release of TRE3S to the slot for January 25th.  Listening to this first single, it definitely has the feel of early Broken Social Scene, with spastic vocal bursts working diligently over spliced guitar lines and crazy hooks.  We’re super excited about this release, and we hope that once you hear them, you’ll follow our lead with the band.  You can check the band’s SITE for a 2 song mini-single, one which is kicking off the jams below.
