"Residente", is the first solo album by Residente, aka René Pérez Joglar, a Puerto Rican singer/songwriter/producer who has been scooping up awards for years as frontman of his band, Calle 13. His self-titled album seems to be hot off the presses; Amazon has the release date as 31st March 2017.
Am I really that cutting edge for once? Anyway, here are two excellent tracks:-

......

Spoiler for Guerra lyrics:


Gregorian bit, then:-

Yo te miro y mi rabia te toca
Cuando grito sin usar la boca
Y mi furia se come a la gente
Porque muerde aunque no tenga dientes
El dolor no me causa problema
Hoy los dolores recitan poemas
El mundo me lo como sin plato
El miedo a mí me limpia los zapatos

El fuego lo derretí
Hoy las pesadillas no duermen
Porque piensan en mí
Hoy puedo ver lo que el otro no vio
Y los pongo a rezar aunque no crean en dios

Hoy las lagrimas lloran antes morir
Y a los libros de historia los pongo a escribir
Que le tiemblen las piernas al planeta tierra
Hoy yo vine a ganar
Y estoy hecho de guerra
Hecho de guerra

(Los pongo a rezar)

Soy el boquete
Que dejó la bomba que cayó
Lo que fecundó la madre que me parió
Desde que nací soy parte de este menú
Porque yo llegué al ovulo antes que tú

Soy la selva que corre descalza
En el medio del mar sobrevivo sin balsa
Soy el caudal que mueve la corriente
Los batallones que chocan de frente
Mis rivales que vengan de a dos
Hoy, ni siquiera los truenos me alzan la voz

Soy tu derrota, tus dos piernas rotas
El clavo en el pie que traspasó la bota
Soy la estrategia de cualquier combate
Hoy se gana o se pierde
No existe el empate
Soy las penas de tus alegrías
La guerra de noche y la guerra de día
Guerra de noche y la guerra de día

(Los pongo a rezar)

La guerra la mato sin darle un balazo
A la guerra le da miedo los abrazos
La guerra con camuflaje se viste
Así nadie ve cuando se pone triste
La guerra pierde todas sus luchas
Cuando los enemigos se escuchan
La guerra es más débil que fuerte
No aguanta la vida por eso se esconde en la muerte

......
Spoiler for Desencuentro lyrics:
Todas mis mañanas amanecen arropadas con tu atardecer,
Tú te duermes en mi hoy, yo despierto en tu ayer,
Cuando tengo que bajar, te dan ganas de subir,
Yo quiero llegar, cuando tú te quieres ir.

Todos los descubrimientos tienen muchas ganas de encontrarte,
Hasta las estrellas usan telescopios pa´ buscarte,
Dentro de los accidentes imprevistos y las posibilidades, eventualidades, choques estelares.

La casualidad de poder vernos se escapa,
Somos diferentes cielos en un mismo mapa,
Échale sal al café, no está mal ir a probar,
Tenemos la misma sed, con distinto paladar.

Y tú aquí y yo allá,
Y yo aquí y tú allá.
(French bit).

Nuestra coordenada no es lo único que va girando,
(French bit),
Si caminamos al revés, (French bit),
Nos estaremos encontrando.

(French bit)

No hay señal de mis satélites, ni de tus astros,
Tú pierdes mi rumbo, cuando yo pierdo tu rastro,
Y aunque perder tus pasos sea parte de mi rutina,
El suelo sonríe cada vez que tú caminas.

Oh snaps, I need to get that. I love Calle 13. Their sister won a Grammy for her solo album this year.

Move your 37 year old blond haired, blue eyed, sorry ass from Northeast Boston to San Diego 20 years ago and try not to get addicted to the hypnotic, rhythmic grooves of Hispanic music. Not gonna happen.

I love "Sweet Home Alabama", but come on now.



Carlos was tripping his ass off during this entire performance.

Most of this is instrumental, but there are some vocals, so I gues it counts.

It's Marc freaking Ribot, so it's a given that it's awesome.

^ Well, I'm arriving late to the party as I don't know much about Calle 13. Any specific recs, dj ? (that are light on the rap, please)

That Marc Ribot sounds really great, grindy; lots of cool guitar
Looks like MR is following in Ry Cooder's footsteps; another guitarist seduced by the sounds of Cuba.

I was 20 mins into the Marc Ribot album before I heard a word of Spanish, which is perfect by me; but let's see if you (and Chula with his instrumental offering) get into trouble when Zaqarbal comes back!

Somehing more vocal-centric, again featuring Ribot.

I think we could consider it a minor sin. In fact, right now I feel like sinning a little too:

► Leño: La nana (The Lullaby, 1979) and Castigo (Punishment, 1979).

Since the group is apparently from Brazil, it must be Portugese.

Non-lexical vocables in this tune, but, still, a good album:
