Remember way back when in the year 2000 when Mala Rodriguez burst onto the scene with hard core hip hop and sharp social lyrics? Then not so long afterwards, the spitfire Spaniard came at us with an alternative beat in the company of the like of Julieta Venegas in her album Malamarismo in 2007.

Enrique Bunbury just released a new album called Las Consecuencias, and he’s taking it on the road.

The Spaniard has announced more than 20 tour dates across the United States, starting April 24th in El Paso, Texas and ending June 8th in Tucson Arizona.

According to the rock god himself, Las Consecuencias is the darkest and most down tempo he has ever recorded. Indeed, we’ve been blasting it in the Remezcla Headquarterz and we’ve fallen under a mysterious, acoustic, Bunburesque… READ MORE
