Alaska, single by Bunbury. Bunbury is back and he is mellow, happy, and deep in your ears and your heart. This is the second alt rock single released from the upcoming Greta Garbo album and it is an earworm that holds you with its soft beat and holds you again with the melodies. Spanish. Stream on Spotify.
Lost, single by Irene Diaz. Like all Irene Diaz songs you can only close your eyes and let the music and emotion flow over you. Her voice is seductive but almost sad and desperate as she soars on the wings of her notes through the heartbreak of loss. If you are a fan this will slide right into your Irene Diaz playlist; if you are not, you will be after you listened to Lost. Stream on Spotify.
AIRE , album by Magos Herrera. This Mexican composer and jazz singer releases her newest album AIRE (Air) on May 5. The title track is luminous and hints at the masterpiece to come.

Todo Fue por Amor, single by Carla Morrison. Morrison’s voice tiptoes through a flower field of music in Todo Fue por Amor and the result may be one of the best things Morrison has ever done.
