Felix Contreras always jokes that every time we do a show full of new music, one song in the mix has become my obsession. This week is different: I'm infatuated with single song we play. Our eclectic mix includes Brazilian beats, Latin metal and Uruguayan hip-hop, and we close the show with a brand-new song from Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux. (As well as a big announcement.)

As always, tune in and leave your comments: What songs and records have become your obsession these days?
