An appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert at the tail end of 2014 tossed Making Movies into heavy Spotify indie rotation, and they’ve been riding the wave ever since. Founding band members, Panama-born brothers Enrique and Diego, grew up in Kansas City, Mo. and sought to create a sound that reflected their own varied influences and diversity. The group’s Afro-Latino rhythms meld with bilingual rock (occasionally psychedelic) vocals to create a sound that’s beautifully miscellaneous. (If you haven’t heard them yet, check out “Pendulum Swing.”) Their latest single, “Spinning Out,” dropped on Cinco de Mayo this year and is well worth a listen. Making Movies last shared a stage in San Antonio at 502 Bar to celebrate the release of Migrant Kids’ latest album last year (there is a video somewhere in the land of social media that captures both groups majestically covering of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U”). During Making Movies’ set, the group memorably transitioned from stage to floor to play a few acoustic tunes in the middle of the crowd. Safe to say Making Movies puts on shows you’ll remember.
