Porcelana

Porcelana-02BPorcelana is a female-fronted alternative rock band form Monterrey, Mexico, formed in 2006. The members, currently, are Joselyn “Joss” Paulette (vocals), Marcelo (guitar), Manolo (guitar), Berny (bass), and Pato (drums). Joss replaces the band’s original vocalist Marcela Chao. Porcelana plays addictive alternative rock similar to American indie alt-rockersPorcelana-08 Faces of March, or Colombia’s V For Volume (whose singer María José Camargo is the sister of Mateo Camargo of Madina Lake). Porcelana‘s self-titled debut, with Marcela on vocals, was released in 2010, and, the follow-up Perverso Deseo, with Joss on vocals, will be released, hopefully, in 2013.

Porcelana (2010) is filled with ten excellent tracks like “Reflector”, “Viaje al Sur” and “Carta a un Ciego”, all with videos, as well as others like “Lo vi Venir” “Fantasmas en la Nieve” and “Escape”. But, my favorite track is “Entre Rosas y Café”. Sadly, there’s no official video for this song, but, it should have been a hit on Mexican rock radio if it wasn’t. “Porcelana”, a tuneful ballad, is another favorite, too. Porcelana is an awesome debut that makes me wish I would have taken Spanish in high school to truly appreciate it’s earnest alternative rock! Watch the videos from this album here:



And, watch the video for “Cielos del Noche” which plays over the ending credits of the Mexican sci-fi film Seres: Genesis (2010):

Finally, watch the video for the first single, “No Soy Tan Fuerte”, from Porcelana‘s soon to be released second album, Perverso Deseo, here:

  1. Porcelana es el mejor grupo de todo el mundo… punto!!!… amo a Marcelo Chao pero Joss no lo hace mal su voz suena muy bien en el segundo disco y el estilo rocker sigue presente en cada una de sus canciones. Mi canción preferida de ellos es Porcelana.
