ANNO SENZA ESTATE: MMXVI: 7”

This eleven-track mini-album by Anno Senza Estate is tripping me out in the absolute best way possible. Audibly inspired by Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, and Dwarves, A.S.E. stays true to the dogma of their idols, lauding them with offerings of compact, catchy cuts. And though they sing solely in Italian, there’s an insert included in the 7” with all of their lyrics translated into English. Which is pretty sweet, because they read more like the tenets of Buddhist teaching than the trite, fuck-the-establishment diatribes we’ve all come to expect from unimaginative punk bands. Seriously worth checking out, and you can thank me later. Namaste. –Simone Carter (Punti Scena, [email protected], puntiscenarecords.wordpress.com / 1332, [email protected], 1332records.com)
