About Us:

Weird Fishes is a collective of people who share their passion for music with people from around the world, here is a little bit about our contributors:

Daniela @DanVelasco

Studied International Relations in Geneva and Mexico City. Music lover, I believe there can´t be life without music.  “Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.” Favorite Bands: The Cure, The Smiths, The Clash, Vampire Weekend, Bob Marley, David Bowie, Animal Collective, The Strokes, The Postal Service, Shout out Louds, The Shins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, Bon Iver. The best thing about music is the fact that it connects people, it connects souls, it connects the world.


Santiago @elorty

Endemic species of the mexico city area in danger of extinction loves Bacardi and music. Hates sunday drivers. Music: The Who, Strokes, Creedence Clearwater Revival. and so many others. Buy your own fucking road!

Mike @miguelautrey

He owes his nihilism to the fact that he was raised by wolves. His arrogance comes from a god-complex-narcissim. When asked about music, he scoffs. Life requires little effort for him because he can sum it all up with the phrase “I don’t give a shit”. Is there a deeper level of humanity in him? probably, however once the novelty wears off you can see a mono-dimensional allegory of decay. His only band t-shirts are of Metallica, Guns n Roses, the Strokes and Motley Crue, nobody knows if they are meant to be ironic or not. His dismissive attitude might label him a ‘hater’. He doesn’t care for labels or tags or genres for that matter. He feeds on perfection, or his delusional idea of perfection. delirious, mythomaniac, he is as full of himself as he is of shit. “And YES he refers to himself in the third person”

Roberto @bobclapes

Studied communication in Boston and now resides in Mexico City. Independent filmmaker and writer. Favorite Bands: Pink Floyd, Animal Collective, The Beatles, Arthur Russell, James Blake, Panda Bear, The Flaming Lips. Favorite Directors: Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Luis Buñuel, Jean-Luc Godard, Lars Von Trier, Alejandro Jodorowsky. Favorite Writers: Haruki Murakami, Aldous Huxley, Chuck Klosterman, Charles Bukowski, Steven Johnson.

Karla @karlassd

They say women talk an average of 7000 words a day, however I ´m working to reverse that bet. I love to travel, tweet and sleep, I like sushi, gossips and facts but I hate carrots, traffic and cats. I´m the world’s worst singer, nevertheless I´m convince that life without chocolates and music wouldn’t be such a feast. Music: Kings of Convenience, Passion Pit, Vampire Weekend, The XX and Lykke Li are some bands on top of my list.

Ana Sofia @naSofia

I study Chemical Engineering and have no idea what to do with my life, but I’ve always liked art and music- but I am not sure I have a defined musical taste, I consider myself quite ignorant in this matter sometimes. I like classical music, loud music, calm music, mostly I like music that succeeds in transmitting something, anything… I love medieval art, just before they got perspective right. I blabber a lot.

Xavier @SoyelNapo

I like music that takes me somewhere. Too optimistic. Hate pretentious people. Bands: Bon Iver, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, Vampire Weekend, Radiohead, The Postal Service, Bob Marley, Beach House, LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads, Daft Punk, Dave Matthews Band. Movies: Fifth Element, Great Expectations, Inception, Date Night. Books: The Godfather, Cain and Abel, Sons of Fortune, Life Expectancy.
