Y La Bamba
Luz Elena Mendoza returns to themes of searching, metamorphosis, shared humanity, and a faith that is greater than just religion.
Born in San Francisco as a first generation daughter of immigrant parents from Michoacan Mexico, she spent her childhood raised by the melodies and stories that were being told through traditional Mexican folk songs.
From the intimate, contemplative verses in her native-language, to the revelations of the history in her roots, her story is delivered with poise. Mendoza finds the intricate space between creation and growth to keep her poetic expression emotionally raw and ever evolving.
These songs are a soundtrack built for coming to grips with, not just one’s own mortality, but the fragility of the world, presenting sounds that carry the realness of ancestral trauma and the search of identity.
Multi-instrumentalist producer-songwriters wife and husband duo Jen O’Connor and Eric Krans are fearless in their willingness to explore new sound palettes for their intimate brand of art-pop. Throughout their progression from indie-folk, to stomp and clap trance-folk, to “campfire disco” -as Pitchfork described their sophomore release, Wahzu Wahzu -The Parlor continues to experiment with new instrumentation and blend their set of genre and stylistic songwriting influences. Their deeply personal concept record ‘Kiku’ is set for release on April 13, 2018.
