Kick Your Weekend Off Right With Café Tacvba’s First New Song In 4 Years

This is the band’s first new song in four years.

The argument can–and should–be made that Café Tacvba is the greatest Latin American rock band of all time. One such reason why they more than deserve that distinction is that despite being older than a lot of you (they formed in 1989), the band is constantly reinventing their sound. They’re not in the habit of putting out the same recycled songs over and over, which is more than you can say for their counterparts.

That willingness to try something fresh is certainly present in “Un Par De Lugares,” the group’s first single in more than four years. The song is synthy and upbeat, which makes sense given that it was mixed by Mick Guzauki, who’s worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Prince and Daft Punk.

And what’s the tune about?

“This is a song that talks about the feeling of absence and how we go to a pair of places–our mind and our heart– to recover the thoughts and feelings that help us alleviate the pain,” lead vocalist Rubén Albarrán said in a statement.

Dope.

She is 90 years old, and she bikes more than you.

Elena Galvez is a 90-year-old Chilean abuelita who’s melting hearts all over the world with her determination. Galvez has been making a living for herself for the last 43 years by selling her chickens’ eggs around her town of Rengo, Chile. She bikes 18 miles a day to get to town to sell her eggs. Galvez, who has been using the same bike since she first started selling eggs, considers her bike her best friend and companion.

“It’s my companion, my friend,” Galvez told Reuters. “I am nothing without her.”

We should all try to be as active and determined as this viejita.
