Fonocast #6: It's Not Me, It's You

Fonocast #6: It's Not Me, It's You
by Blanca Méndez and Andrew Casillas

Not to be a total downer, but I want you to think back to your last breakup. Or, better yet, your worst breakup – the one that redefined and intensified your definition of heartbreak, the one that made you feel as if the sky was literally falling and the universe was slowly closing in on you and there was nothing you could do but wait for that crushing end in the bathtub in the dark with a bottle of Malbec and Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” on loop. (I don’t want to be all by myself either, Celine!) Breakups can be rough, but out of that pain we have gotten some of the best, most honest music. Like Alex Anwandter says in “Que se acabe el mundo,” “se me parte un poco el corazon, pero es gasolina para hacer canciones.” For this podcast, we brave that dangerous territory of past heartaches with Franny Glass, Carla Morrison, and Pepe Aguilar.
