Video: Y La Bamba - "My Love Is A Forest Fire"

The newest edition of Filter Magazine raved Y La Bamba’s new album Lupon (produced by The Decemberists’ Chris Funk), calling it “a collection of hazy, whispering ballads steeped in polarizing art-folk and sacred Mexican lore.” The band leaded by the beautiful (and very tall) Luz Elena Mendoza captivated our ears last year with her collection of home-recorded demos released as Alida St. Elena’s soulful voice and religious codified lyrics are especially shining in the band’s newest single “Juniper.” Here is a striking video of the band playing “My Love is a Forest Fire”, it’s beautifully painful. The new album includes two of our favorite songs from them, “Isla de Hierva Buena” and “Soy Capitan.”Lupon is technically, their debut album, out on September 28 through Tender Loving Empire.
