Court the Storm

Y La Bamba

Music Format
  • Listen to the song "Bendito"

    Y La Bamba's Court The Storm creates a musical landscape that walks a musical line between alt-latino and indie-folk. With veteran Grammy winning producer Steve Berlin at the album’s helm and a guest appearance from beloved Tacoma native Neko Case, Court The Storm is anything but a disappointing follow up to 2010's critically-acclaimed Lupon. Bursting with raw, sincere energy, the album manages to be as exciting as the band’s famously spirited live performances.

  • Y La BambaY La Bamba Formed in 2008, Y La Bamba is the project of songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza. Upon listening to Mendoza’s music it’s clear that she draws from a myriad of influences--from Mexican 30’s tunes to Devendra Banhart. Mendoza’s distinctive voice, poetic and honest lyrics, and melding of disparate genres has earned the project fans across the country and has perked the ears of journalists at the likes of NPR, Vice, and Rolling Stone. Always open to exploration and hungry for further musical development, Y La Bamba is an exciting band to watch grow and consistently keeps fans wondering and anxious to see what they will put out next.
