DAVILA 666: Self-titled: CD

Nov 16, 2008

So far as I can tell, these guys are a current band hailing from Puerto Rico, but found myself repeatedly searching through the meager information provided here just to make sure. What we’ve got here is a band steeped in equal parts, primal rock, ‘60s pop, trash rock, punk and minimalist stuff bands like the Cramps, Jesus And Mary Chain and the Scientists love so much, and they manage to serve it all up in ways that sound like they’re first, rather than reheated helpings. The delivery is subdued, but there is a strange bit of edge bubbling just underneath. Don’t let the fact that the lyrics are in Spanish deter you, ’cause one helluva band they is.
