East Los homies Delinquent Habits made people pay attention with Tres Delinquentes, the music video for a song on their self-titled first studio album. This music video has it all! English, Spanish, Spanglish, hiphop, rap, mariachi, moshing, hynas, scratching, lowriding, little people, Blaxicans, and, of course, burros.


Los Angeles-based analogelectroclash blues band MADåPPLE — the insane lovechild of Stevie Wonder and Tom Waits — goes down to Mexico in this music video. Why Mexico? They’ve still got respect for the dead. New Orleans, too.

MADåPPLE is on the Fesibuk.


The perfectly pop-alicious Guapo is from Rafa Cuevas, a visual and musical artist in Mexico City. It’s from his new album The Mexican Way.
