Norteño Rap 14 Caliber - Burning Bridges

This post reminds me of the back when I wrote about Grammy Categories and Favorites, and also back when I wrote about Bionic Jive.

So while I was searching for songs from the Norteño Genre of music, I happened to encounter one that was of Norteño rap.

When I think of Norteño music, I am more inclined to think of the semi-mariachi styles with lots of saxophones and trumpets. This is not the same thing.

Latin American or Chicano American Rap is something that I never listen to normally. However, this son really stood out.
It has a great classic horror movie sound that is mixed in with words that blend pretty damn well. I have become a fan.

This song is dedicated to AWM: The Useless Critic Ambassador to Rap.

AWM, would you like to dedicate a song to me?


  1. oh yeah,
    Cinco de Mayo

    Feliz Algo :)

  2. I dedicated a lot of songs to you in my jams section on the right, but they came out as plain white boxes.

  3. I saw that.(ursula and me right?)
    I wasn't sure what happened with the white boxes. i hate glitches. respect

  4. Yeah I faked everyone and their mother out with those white boxes.

    here's what it should show.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
