Little Jesus

Little Jesus is a band from Mexico City formed by five friends who thanks to many songs and hundreds of live performances have managed to position themselves as one of the new rock references in Latin America.

It all started late 2012 when Little Jesus released their first single “Berlin”. A song that quickly began to being play in the main radio stations in Mexico City and grasped the attention of specialized music sites, thanks to a series of dance rhythms and an original melody defined at the time as tropipop.

At the end of 2013, Little Jesus presented their debut album Norte. A collection of nine songs that instantly positioned itself as one of the best albums of the year. After touring throughout the Mexican Republic, Europe, Chile, Argentina, Peru and Colombia in South America, cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin and San Francisco in the United States; Little Jesus presented their second album in 2016, Río Salvaje, a series of ten songs, with top singles “La Magia” and “TQM”, collaboration with Ximena Sariñana and Elsa Y Elmar from Colombia.

Little Jesus dropped on 2019 their third album, which was released via Sony Music. An album that took them to their first US tour in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, San Diego, among others.

When we talk about Latin indie, we talk about Little Jesus.

Divino Niño
Divino Niño are no strangers to bold reinvention. When Camilo Medina and Javier Forero—friends whose bond dates back to their childhoods in Bogotá, Colombia—moved to Chicago and recruited guitarist Guillermo Rodriguez to form a band, they were psych-pop outsiders playing live shows with a drum machine. With the addition of drummer Pierce Codina, their 2019 breakthrough and debut LP for Winspear, Foam, solidified their place as local indie rock mainstays. Soon after, multi-instrumentalist Justin Vittori joined to round out their lineup. Once again, with their masterful, unpredictable, and eminently danceable new album, the band has done something radical: They totally upended the way they write songs, eschewing practice room jams for unrelentingly collaborative beats, implied grooves for immersive dance floor heaters, and mellow vibes for frenetic doses of reggaeton, electropop, and trap on their most adventurous and ambitious work to date. Welcome to the Last Spa on Earth.
 
Written and recorded over the past two years, Last Spa on Earth deals in release and catharsis: confronting your darkest moments and coming out better for it. The album artwork, done by Medina, a longstanding visual artist, depicts a dreamy, yet graffiti-tagged spa, void of physical bodies so listeners can envision themselves in this unique environment. It represents the yin and yang approach Divino Niño took while creating the album: the serenity of the spa and the chaos of the party. Ultimately, the band’s desire is to provide healing in the same way one feels after sweating, shivering, stretching, and resting at the spa against the backdrop of the world’s darkness. Last Spa on Earth is the cathartic product of Divino Niño letting go of their musical preconceptions, past traumas, and future anxieties to embrace change, chaos, and each other’s contributions both to these songs and to each other.
