New music video: "Como Quisiera (Pulsar)" by Monte Negro
Monte Negro is one of my all time favorite bands, Latin and non.Their sound is completely original but comfortably familiar. They are indie, but edgier. Even better, they are Latino. Well, Jason (guitar) is Japanese but that makes the group's make up even cooler. He's also one of the best guitarists I've seen. Monte Negro are semi-big in the Latin Alternative world and are certainly ready to blow up in the mainstream indie world. Take notice folks. Watch this new video from their latest album, Cosmic Twins.
