Carlos Reyes has been blogging since he was 14. Exactly two years after his family migrated from Mexico to Phoenix, Arizona. There’s nothing coincidental about this — coming to America was an exercise in profound dislocation and loneliness. Blogging was his way forward.
Club Fonograma, the music site he founded six years ago, has become a digital mecca for Latino hipsters, Anglo hispanophiles, and music lovers. The blog features music exclusively in Spanish, but all reviews are written in English. In that way, his creative effort closely parallels his own life: half spent in Mexico, half in the United States.
