The wind may blow and the earth may shake but Songmess is still here!On this very special episode we are bringing you loads of [relatively] new music that will make your head explode.

This episode is packed with lit songs and some potentially controversial opinions about big pop names and rising music trends. Pero this is our show and our insight, and we invite conversation, so enjoy!Featured Artists: Boss In Drama, Cardi B + Messiah, Bomba Estéreo, Daniela Spalla, The Marías, Mula, Kali Uchis + Reykon, J. Balvin, Salt Cathedral, La Dama, Cuco, Ocean Lips, and Kali Mutsa + Imaabs + Tomasa del Real.Episode art by César Arias [IG @ariasariasarias] and don't forge to share, subscribe and find us on iTunes, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or contact us at songmessmusic@gmail.com.We also want to acknowledge the victims of the recent bout of hurricanes and earthquakes that have rocked the Caribbean, the southern US and Mexico. There is no shortage of people in need at the moment, so reach out to whichever organization you trust most and volunteer and donate however you can. These recent disasters hit close to home for us since many of our friends and show favorites hail from Mexico and Puerto Rico, and we feel for all who've lost homes, livelihoods and loved ones.
