Witterings from an old indie kid
Well after being struck down with an ear infection since the weekend the first thing I have listened to all week is the new EP from Chilean band La Casa De Emma and it’s their first release proper following from the demos released earlier this year.
Four of the five songs here don’t top the 105 seconds mark being fast, frantic and damn good. It’s on the final and longest song Skolniks where the band excel mind. It sounds like a long long classic from the C86 era and even at 3m.15s it’s way too short as the vocalist sings (in their native Spanish as on the whole EP) of drowning in despair. A bit glum maybe given the upbeat music but this is definitely the sound of twee punk! More please.
Get it on a pay what you want basis from Chilean label Junko Records.
The band also contribute another new track to the Para Siempre compilation on Mexican label Stupid Decisions early next month.
