Hola amigos,
Aquí les hablo un poco de mi nuevo video Amor de Alta Mar. El concepto del video fue creada por Carlos Lopez Estrada quien también fue el director. Como la letra de la canción es visualmente tan fuerte no queríamos algo obvio en lo visual. Entonces Carlos tuvo la idea de usar a los pájaros como un símbolo del cambio mostrando que lo que tuviste en el pasado no lo tendrás en el futuro o se transformara en algo mas. Capturando así los temas generales de la canción. También como buenos estudiantes del cine y literatura latino americana, esta el uso del realismo mágico que toma cosas del mundo real como pájaros, edificios, personas y les pone en otra dimensión donde los pájaros salen de cajas y edificios, que en verdad se ven muy cool pero que sirve para abrir el símbolo metafórico que ayuda a combinar lo visual con lo musical. (espera un momento……..Lights up joint and takes a big hit) cough, cough, de que estábamos hablando? Ah si… Bueno para concluir fue un video muy divertido hacer y para mi muestra el poder de lo que puedes hacer cuando combinas una buena idea con gente con ganas porque fue un labor de mucho amor de parte del director y su crew. Cuenta también con la presencia de mis dorados que ayudaron a aportar la energía apropiada al video.
Bueno amigos espero que siguen disfrutando del video y si tienen preguntas o sus propias interpretaciones me encantaría saber lo que tienen que decir.
Amor y música,
Gustavo

I’ve been a bad neglectful tumblr updater.

Since we have twitter and facebook to update about the current things going on in my world I’m going to use the tumblr to update you on songs that are being written and practiced on with the band. Asi pueden estar conectados a lo que esta pasando mientras no estoy de gira.

Two songs that we are currently working on are called Desierto de Leones and In the Deep.
I’m always amused the way songs come to me in Spanish or in English and these two came about very organically and when I brought them into the band it became obvious that they felt as good about them as I did. O si no pa’fuera!

So here is a sample of both songs so you can get a taste for them. Obviously the recording is from a rehearsal space and not the best. The idea is there but the songs still need work which is why its only a sample. No hay que darles pastel si todavia se esta cocinando el pan.

As the boys and I plug away at new songs I will do my best to keep you guys updated with video and recordings so you can hear whats fresh and new.

Enjoy and I hope to see you all soon!

1) Desierto de Leones

Bajo el cielo de un desierto
Con mi hermano voy caminando
Contra el viento y la arena
El sol golpea sin piedad
Con cada paso vamos dejando
A nuestras pieles, nuestros pasados

En el desierto de los leones
Vamos sembrando sueños
En el desierto de los leones
Vamos cambiando dueños

2) In the deep

Give me love
Give me time
Give me a place
That I know is mine

Give me hope
Give me change
Give me an answer
So I can explain

Pull this heart under
And find me falling

In the deep
Where my love I go
Searching for all the dreams I know
And I leave you hanging on
I leave on the surface
Of the deep

Entre La Ciudad y El Mar Album Release + Party

March 8: Entre La Ciudad Y El Mar - Album release!
Plus!
Album release Party!

Mis queridos amigos,

Hace dos años empece, con la ayuda de Adrian Sosa, Anibal Kerpel y Gustavo Santaolalla, a grabar las canciones de mi primer disco “Entre La Ciudad y El Mar”. El proceso de haber escrito estas canciones con mi guitarra y un cuaderno y despues ver como fueron tomando vida en los diferentes estudios en donde grabamos, fue para mi una de las experiencias hasta ahora mas lindas de mi vida.

Quiero darles a ustedes, algunos que hace mas de dos años me han estado apoyando, las gracias por todo su apoyo y paciencia. Gracias por postear en facebook, twitter, por venir a verme tocar en vivo, por ver los videos y por toda su buena onda. Espero verlos el 8 de marzo en la noche para agradecerles en persona. Si no puedes estar ahi porque te encuentres en otra ciudad o pais lo bonito de la musica es que no tiene fronteras o sabe de distancias y espero algun dia llegar en donde esten y darles un fuerte abrazo de las mas sinceras gracias.

Amor y Musica,

Gustavo
My dear friends,

More than two years ago, with the help of Adrian Sosa, Anibal Kerpel and Gustavo Santaolalla, we began recording the songs for my first album “Entre La Ciudad y El Mar”. Having written these songs with just my guitar and a notepad, and watching them come to life in the different studios where we recorded has been for me one of the most incredible experiences in my 28 years on this planet.

I would like to thank you for all your support and patience over these past two years. Thanks for coming to the shows, posting on facebook and twitter, watching the videos — and for your good vibes in general. I hope to be able to thank some of you in person on March 8th at our album launch party, but for those of you that can’t make it due to distance or time, know that I hope to one day be able to see you in person and give you a big hug and the most sincere thanks.

Love and music,

Gustavo

Finally to the wait is over! The album Entre La Ciudad y El Mar is coming out March 8! Its been a long year since we first finished the album and now that its finally coming out I cant hardly believe it.

To celebrate we will be holding a release party at the House of Blues on Sunset also on March 8 that is going to a whole lot of fun. If you cant join us in LA you could join us spiritually and have a small CD listening party with friends, pets, zombie lovers or imaginary vampires and a great sound system.

I feel strongly that this album should be listened to as one piece of work. Each song leads into the next and although they each have there own body and sound there spirit is the same which is something rare in today’s landscape of singles sensations. In the end though the music will speak for itself and all I can ask is that people listen with an open heart.

Si hablas español chequen esta entrevista que hice para la revista de alborde.com

Abrazo grande,

Wheels of Thunder

Here is are the lyrics to a new song that I wrote with the help of the boys of “El Dorado” and was produced by Josh Sonntag, Adrian Sosa and Anibal Kerpel. There is an alternate acoustic version that we will post soon as well.

Aqui esta la letra de una nueva cancion que escribi con los chicos de “El Dorado”. Fue producida por Josh Sonntag, Adrian Sosa y Anibal Kerpel. Estamos tambien trabajando en una version acustica que subiremos despues.

http://soundcloud.com/gustavo-galindo/wheels-of-thunder

There’s a killer in the night
His eyes are shining bright
Driving down the freeway
In the pale moonlight

Keeps his headlights straight ahead
Never thinks about the dead
Or the things that they said
When his knife was running red

And he rolls on the wheels of thunder

Run as fast as you can
Save your heart from his hands
Run as fast a you can
From the wheels of thunder

There’s a little place he goes
Way down in Mexico
Where he goes to lay low
Where he goes to take it slow

He dreams about the end
All the lives he’s taken in
All the hearts that he’s stopped
All the bodies he’s dropped

And he rolls on the wheels of thunder

Run as fast as you can
Save your heart from his hands
Run as fast a you can
From the wheels of thunder

Dia de ensayo acústico en preparación para unos shows y grabe una canción que no habia hecho antes que se llama Amor de Alta Mar. La cancion se trata del precios que pagas cuando intentas ir por tus sueños y dejas el amor atras.

Getting ready for some acoustic shows and thought I would record one song I have not done acoustic before. This one is called Amor de Alta Mar. Its about what happens when you go for your dreams and leave love behind.

Here are the lyrics

Que,
Que quieren de mi?
Los últimos recuerdos de ti
Y con la tormenta que viene
En este alta mar
Por el peso de mis sueños
Que no supe dejar
Y ahora voy caminando
Sobre el tablón
Amarrado a un ancla
Con todo me temor

Este amor de Alta Mar
Que no supe dejar

Son los últimos momentos
Y miro sobre este mar
Y mis ultimas palabras?
Quizas te quería mas
De lo que pensabas
De lo que supieras

Esta amor de alta mar
Que no supe dejar
Este amor de alta mar
Que no supe dejar

Doy un paso y me tiro
Tragando este mar
De azules y verdes
Que en el fondo cambiaran
Y con mis respiros finales
Dejo todo atras
Excepto todas tus memorias
Que no se dejar
Que no se dejar

Este amor de alta mar
Que no supe dejar

Barco de Papel - Letra

En un barco de papel
Estamos tu y yo
Solos con el mar
Y con cartas de amor
Construimos el timon
Pero se nos olvido…

Navegando sin saber
A donde el viento nos llevara

Solo que sera de mi amor
Solo que sera de ti amor

Tratamos de cruzar
El desierto de azul
Sin saber porque llegar
Olvidamos la razon
Sin estrellas ni mapas
Solo el amor va
A la merced del mar

Navegando sin saber
A donde el viento nos llevara

Solo que sera de mi amor
Solo que sera de ti amor
Solo que sera de mi amor
Solo que sera de ti amor

Si la tormenta llega
Atras de las mil cosas
Que yo no supe decir
Usa las cartas que escribi
Con todo mi amor
Para construir
El barco de papel

Solo que sera de mi amor
Solo que sera de ti amor
Solo que sera de mi amor
Solo que sera de ti amor

 


Today! Barco de Papel video premiere!

Today! - January 26: Barco de Papel - Video release
photo by: Jonathan Yi
via Flickr
With the second single, "Barco de Papel", we wanted the video to be less about a storyline and be more visually atmospheric, and show more live performance as I explored one of my favorite cities in the world, New York, and in the wintertime when the landscape takes on almost an empty, but very clear feeling. The director, Victor Lau, chose to shoot with 16mm film to make the video look raw and homemade, to reflect on the song’s looser and more contemplative narrative.
In certain cases a video will outshine a song with big special effects but I think in our case the song matches the video and even helps it along. This video is definitely a different feel than my first, but I hope you guys enjoy it and I’m looking forward to hearing what you think!
