New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with Mexican Singer/Songwriter Natalia Lafourcade

Posted by Amoebite, November 16, 2015 05:59pm | Post a Comment

Natalia Lafourcade at Amoeba

Natalia Lafourcade is a Mexican pop/rock singer and songwriter from Coatepec. While growing up, she performed in a mariachi band and in an all-girl trio called Twist before going solo at age seventeen. Her self-titled debut album was released in 2002, garnering her a GRAMMY nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. Three years later, she released her followup, Casa, as Natalia y La Forquetina, which was the name of her band at the time. In 2006, she announced she would be leaving the band to perform as a solo artist once again.

Natalia LaFourcade Hasta la Raiz

Lafourcade continued to release solo albums, with her 2009 release, Hu Hu Hu, becoming a Top 10 album in Mexico and receiving nominations for Best Latin Pop Album at the GRAMMYs and Best Female Pop Vocal Album at the Latin GRAMMY Awards. Her 2015 release, Hasta La Rai­z, and its single of the same name have been nominated for five awards at this year's Latin GRAMMYs. Watch her perform live on the awards show, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Thursday, November 19th.

Get to know Lafourcade a little deeper as she shares many of the albums that influenced her during a recent chat with our "What's In My Bag?" crew at Amoeba Hollywood. She starts with Joni Mitchell's classic Blue, the biggest musical inspiration for her current album. She also talks about Erykah Badu's seminal Mama's Gun, Edith Piaf's Je Ne Regrette Rien, and delves into the catalog of Nick Drake.

PPL MVR at Amoeba Hollywood

PPL MVR are a mysterious band of musically-inclined non-people. Are they Space Yetis? Regular Yetis? Distant Chewbacca cousins? Long-extinct hominid cousins thawed out by the shifting of the polar icecaps? Whatever they are, it really doesn't matter, because as "the one and only PPL MVR," these one-of-a-kind rockers don't pose much of a threat to humanity--unless it's to our eardrums. Because once PPL MVR take the stage, things are gonna get heavy.

PPL MVR Record

That's exactly what happened when the three masterminds behind PPL MVR-- SNWBLL (the white one), Q (the brown one) and K-PO (the black one)--took to the stage at Amoeba Hollywood along with a few human friends backing them up live. Check out video from their epic performance below, and stop by our Hollywood store to pick up their record, The One and Only PPL MVR. 

If you happen to be in the New York area, you can catch PPL MVR live at the Highline Ballroom with Cerebral Ballzy and Oil Boom on November 11th.

Ghost What's In My Bag? at Amoeba Hollywood

Swedish heavy metal band Ghost are known for their theatrical appearance onstage and their anonymity offstage. Fronted by Papa Emeritus, an "anti-Pope" figure in skull makeup and cardinal robes, and backed by masked members who call themselves Nameless Ghouls, the band formed in 2006. Their debut full-length came in 2010 with the release of Opus Eponymous.

Ghost MeloriaThe followup came in 2013 with Infestissumam, which generated controversy when it was recorded in Nashville, TN, due to the album's satanic lyrical content. Ghost's third album, Meliora, was released in August 2015 and debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 chart. You can watch Ghost make their U.S. television debut this Friday, October 30 with a live performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

In support of Meliora, Ghost recently performed a special acoustic set at Amoeba Hollywood. Over 700 fans showed up for the free show and a lucky 300 were also able to meet the band and get the new record signed. Check out the video below featuring some of the amazing, loyal fans who turned up early for the in-store performance. A Nameless Ghoul from Ghost took some time to talk with our What's in My Bag? crew about some of his favorite albums by KISS and Candlemass, and give us some insight into the black metal concepts in Ghost.
