Helado Negro Talks with Buscabulla on the Talkhouse Podcast

They discuss releasing music during quarantine, the tight community of “everybody in New York that makes weird music in Spanish,” and much more.

Today’s show opens with poet Yrsa Daley-Ward reading her new work “Making The End.”

Helado Negro and Buscabulla kicked off the Talkhouse Podcast Live on Insta series last month with this warm, thoughtful conversation. The old friends and regular collaborators each have wonderful new music out: Helado Negro recently dropped the single “I Fell In Love” featuring Xenia Rubinos, while Puerto Rican art-poppers Buscabulla just released their hotly tipped debut LP Regressa.

As flags from across Latin America and beyond were posted in the comments, they chopped it up on a lot: The experience of releasing music during quarantine; the tight community of “everybody in New York that makes weird music in Spanish”; why Nick Hakim is really Neo from The Matrix; and lots more.
