EXCLUSIVE: Sin Mucho Sentido – A Latino Tribute to Talking Heads

By 17 November, 2014

This week we are bringing you the exclusive stream of Sin Mucho Sentido, a brand new Latin tribute to the massively-influential New York band Talking Heads, and more specifically their landmark 1984 live album/film Stop Making Sense, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

The album has been put together by Ponk Records, a Brooklyn based record label, who chose a diverse group of Latin musicians to cover the tracks that originally appeared on Stop Making Sense, an album that included classic tracks like “Psycho Killer”, “Burning Down The House” and “Once In A Lifetime”. The results are often surprising and never less than enthralling, with artists including Chile’s electronic maestro El Sueño de la Casa Propia, his compatriots Miss Garrison, Protistas and Entrópica, Mexico’s Torreblanca, Coronel and Sonido San Francisco, the multinational Brooklyn-based Balancer, Ponk Records’ label boss Sokio and Venezuela’s Ulises Hadjis and Presidente all offering inspired reinventions of the originals.

Sin Mucho Sentido: A Tribute to Talking Heads will be released on Friday 21st November. For the duration of this week you can listen exclusively to the album below:
