Plastilina Mosh

Another post in the series of Rock en Español. Plastilina Mosh is a duet from the northern city of Monterrey in Mexico. Their style has been described as alternative rock (I think it's anything but) and they tend to mix Spanish, English and other languages in the same song. They are usually associated with the "Nintendo generation" as that is how both band members met. I bought one of their CDs in Japan, of all places. Some examples of their music below.

Children of Men

We saw this movie during the weekend, and I have to say, it really got me thinking. I won't spoil it for you, but it had a lot of relevance to me given that I'm a person who has been living abroad almost one quarter of my life. Absolutely recommendable.
