PYGMY LUSH/TURBOSLUT – Split LP

Pygmy Lush/Turboslut – "Split LP." Exotic Fever, 2009. It's a question worth considering: must a great band have ambition?

THE BRONX – Mariachi El Bronx

THE BRONX – Mariachi El Bronx

The Bronx - "Mariachi El Bronx".  August 25, 2009 on Swami Records. This record is one of my top 25 records of 2009. The Bronx have put English lyrics to traditional Mariachi music in their latest work, "Mariachi El Bronx". It's an unexpected move for a cranky punk band, and they have done quite well. This album makes mariachi music much [...]
