Rosalía and my mother’s cleaning music: influences of diaspora on the singer’s career

Sony Music, 2018

Boring, I thought. The first time I listened all the way through Rosalía’s debut album, Los Angeles, all I could think about was that, boring. 12 tracks and an hour later it felt like I had listened to the same song over and over again, the same guitar strum repeating itself with some off-beat vocals scratching on top of it.
