Have you heard of Toca? They are a band from Los Angeles. I wish I could accurately describe what kind of music they play...the best I have to offer is indie/experimental/rock/hip hop/mexican folk/psychedelic. It is truly creative music and to me, there is nothing more inspiring than people who aren't afraid to express their creativity, even if it is light-years ahead of what is out there. You won't be hearing Toca on the radio anytime soon, and that's how I like it.
One of the vocalists is none other than Danny, also known as Xololanxinxo from Of Mexican Descent. He just happens to be my husband's compadre. They grew up together. When I met Michael, he and Danny were roommates. They slept in the same room and used clean laundry to cover themselves as blankets. They didn't even own a refrigerator. They would stay up in the wee hours of the morning and record themselves talking, laughing, singing, rapping, vibing. Danny is one of the most original and creative people I have ever met (second to my sweetcheeks). He is funny as hell and is full of game. On the night Michael and I progressed from friends to soul lovers, Danny was his wing-man. He kept my best friend entertained as he nibbled on her ankle in a very funny, non-sexual way. I am totally serious. Game, I tell you! One interesting fact, Danny didn't care for the idea of Michael and I being together. He was pulling for the ex, since they already had a baby together. Ha...that is hilarious. He said there was something about my eyes. Mwahahahahahahahaha. It's all good, no hard feelings Danny, as you can see I have let that all go. Ahem. It's all love.
So lend them your ear. They're dope.
