Natalia Lafourcade Oficial is an unconventional Mexican pop star—a pixie-voiced presence with expansive musical roots that run through her new album, Musas, an homage to the legends of Latin music. Vagabon, the project of Cameroon-born New Yorker Lætitia Tamko, is “an indie rock game changer” (Pitchfork). Each is a fearless triple-threat singer/instrumentalist/songwriter whose popular appeal matches her critical acclaim. While they come from different worlds, they both create lucid magic, with disarmingly candid lyrics folded into expertly crafted cadences that know exactly when to build and recede.
“Casts a spell with deep feeling, and melodies and lyrics that linger in the mind.” – Village Voice on Natalia Lafourcade
“One of indie rock's rising stars…in full possession of the infinity that comes from introspection.” – NPR on Vagabon
