No wave Mexican art punks vent their spleens (or should I say..”bazos””) at the seemingly never ending Mexican Drug war. This LP is a frustrated, reflective anger fuelled slice of vinyl. Their previous albums seemed to be preoccupied with futures and possibilities. This record looks with a cynical, bitter eye at modern day Mexico and its narcotics problems. The songs retain Los Llamarardas edgy, claustrophobic sound, but the tracks on this LP sound even more unhinged and unsettled then before. It's an album where confusion kicks the ass of structure. Songs start then will veer off into panic filled motifs, then roar back again. The girl/boy vocals/chants are still evident, but on this record, the keyboards and drums are stronger and more insistent. This is a record that reminds me of 13th Floor Elevators or Red Krayola in its unrelenting intensity. It may even be the best reaction to war since Red Krayola's “War Sucks”. An angry reaction to living in a city that is under siege from drug dealers/D.E.As and one that is as reactionary as anything you'll hear this year. A very very good record...
