The Heroine


1 - Café Tacuba
El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco
After five years, Mexico City's alternative kings returned with an album that ranks among their best.

2 - Gaby Moreno
Postales
Guatemala's top songstress and an album so great we even forgive her for singing with Ricardo Arjona.

3 - Natalia Lafourcade
Mujer Divina
Perhaps the best Agustín Lara tribute ever.

TOP 10 ALBUMS

1 - Mark Knopfler
Privateering
Unfairly ignored by most top 10 lists, this album solidifies the former Dire Straits leader's status as one of the most lucid songwriters out there, and one of the best guitarists.

2 - England in 1819
Alma

3 - Fiona Apple
The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do

4 - Metric
Synthetica

5 - Bat for Lashes
The Haunted Man

6 - Neil Young & CrazyHorse
Psychedelic Pill

7 - Bruce Springsteen
Wrecking Ball

8 - Bob Dylan
Tempest

9 - Cat Power
Sun

10 - Alejandro Escovedo
Big Station

TOP 6 SONGS

1 – Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife"
The sexiest track in Fiona's best album.

2 – Metric's "Speed the Collapse"

3 – England in 1819's "Waterfall"

4 - Amadou & Mariam's "Dougou Badia" (feat. Santigold)

5 - Café Tacuba's "Volcán"

6 - Gaby Moreno "Juegos y miedo"
