Looks like Carla Morrison has teamed up with my favorite San Antonio rocker, Nina Diaz of Girl in a Coma. On the tippy toes of that Gepe/Anwandter duet, these two lovely ladies have also teamed up with Le Butcherettes singer, Teri Gender Bender. This triumphant trio hit an LA studio earlier this week to re-record versions of “Déjenme Llorar” and “Hasta la Piel.” Since Carla JUST WON a Latin Grammy yesterday, she seems to be unstoppable. I think this collaboration is magical, and if you’re not a fan of Nina or Teri yet, you better join the bandwagon. Although some might prefer the original versions of these two tracks, this take offers up a somber note to an already stellar song. Much has been written about Morrison and Diaz, but it’s Bender’s career that offers a pleasant surprises. Her collaborations with Omar-Rodríguez-López and Deantoni Parks makes for an interesting contrast to the soft and frilly affects of this work with two of my favorite divas. Teri is a staunch feminists from stage actor parents, so it’s no surprise she’s found a place along side these fellow heroines of social change.
