KCRW is exclusively premiering “Leymah Contra Los Diablos” by LA-based bilingual indie rockers Wait. Think. Fast. as “Today’s Top Tune.” The song, a duet by frontwoman Jacqueline Santillan with special guest Ceci Bastida (ex-member of iconic Mexican punk band Tijuana No and formerly of Julieta Venegas’s band), is culled from the band’s forthcoming LP, Luces del Sur, which will be available digitally this Tuesday August 10 with a physical release following on September 7.
“Leymah Contra Los Diablos” will be played throughout the day on 89.9 FM in LA and can be downloaded for free on KCRW.com HERE.
Luces del Sur made a strong debut at specialty radio last week coming in at #9 on the FMQB album chart where it tied with Admiral Radley (ex-Grandaddy + Earlimart) and trumped R.E.M., Jenny and Johnny and Suckers. The LP was produced in Tucson by Craig Schumacher, best known for his work with Neko Case, Calexico and Iron & Wine.
Existing at the intersection between two vibrant Angeleno music communities, the well-entrenched indie rock scene and the burgeoning Latino scene, Wait. Think. Fast. is a unique hybrid of these two distinct worlds, playing inspired, big-hearted indie rock with a South American twist.
