LOS FANCY FREE -  This Mexico City based band fronted by Swedish transplant Martin Thulin recently wowed New York City at the LAMC in July. Huge in their homeland Mexico, Los Fancy Free are beginning to brake through anglo culture with their releases Nevergreens Vol 1 and 2.  Both Fader Magazine and RCDLBL have recently embraced the band as have UK bloggers Subba-Cultcha and NewNoise.net.  You can view their most recent hit singles: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=26129337 and http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfmfuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=40203971 
You can also listen to their English and Spanish sung songs at www.myspace.com/losfancyfree

NUURO - NYU student Alex Ghersi has been composing since a young age, creating music for television spots in his home Venesuela at only 15 years old!  Here as Nuuro, Alex mixes sweet electro-pop and indie rock not unlike the Postal Service.  Check out "256 Megabyte of Love" on his myspace page - www.myspace.com/nuuro or download his full eps at www.ponirepublic.blogspot.com/search/label/nuuro

Photobucket
TODOSANTOS - Another group of young Venezuelans currently residing and creating in New York City, Todosantos combine party music with stimulating visuals and an all around fiesta vibe.  Check out their music and visuals at www.myspace.com/todosantos or download their EP at www.ponirepublic.blogspot.com/search/label/todosantos

Photobucket
MANIQUI LAZER - From the border town of Mexicali, Mexico comes this group self described as "Lazer Punk."  They have toured with the Locust and played with American bands like Xiu Xiu, xbxrx, Erase Errata, and Numbers to name a few. You can watch the video for their recent single http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exiBtQmDOQs

Photobucket
TIGER! SH*T! TIGER! TIGER! - Recently featured as a band to watch in Spin Magazine, these Italians play jittery post punk not unlike the Rapture or Bloc Party but give the sound a Mediterranean vibe.  You can watch their latest video and hear their music at www.myspace.com/tigershittigertiger

Photobucket
HEIST AT HAND - Hailing from Houston, TX, these kids survived Hurricane Ike and are ready to head to New York.  Singer Bianca will also be doing some guest vocals on an upcoming Trail of Dead recording while she is here. Their Escucha EP has sold out but is now available on iTunes! You can check them out at www.myspace.com/heistathand

ARI UP is the legendary front woman of the Slits, one of the pioneering girl punk bands on the late 70s UK punk scene.  Their influence on rock and modern music is immense.  Joined by fellow Slits member Hollie Cook, the ladies will rip it up freestyle much like they have done before in LA at the Part Time Punks parties last Spring.
