If you are into Latin Rock and Alternative music, I have a couple of things to share with you. I recently came across an article from Rhapsody with a list of the top 10 Latin albums of Spring 2011. The list includes very interesting works by legendary artists like Mana and Jarabedepalo as well as rising stars such as Gaby Moreno and Helado Negro. The following are their top 10 Latin albums:
- Babasonicos - A Proposito.
- Zoe - Musica De Fondo (MTV Unplugged).
- Gaby Moreno - Illustrated Songs.
- Mana - Drama Y Luz.
- Helado Negro - Canta Lechuza.
- Jarabedepalo - ¿Y Ahora Qué Hacemos?.
- Hello Seahorse! - Lejos No Tan Lejos.
- La Vida Bohème - Nuestra.
- Le Butcherettes - Sin Sin Sin.
- Diego Garcia - Laura.
Also, if you are into this kind of music, NPR's Alt.Latino is a wonderful source to keep up with the new trends of Latin Alternative sounds. Alt.Latino offers a blog and a radio program where you can listen to all kinds of artists in this genre.
