DAVILA 666: Tan Bajo: LP

May 13, 2011

I continue to be amazed by the machine that is Davila 666. These guys tour for months at a time, play every show as if it’s their last, and consistently put out great records. They are a breath of fresh air in a sometimes stale garage rock scene. Tan Bajo has the same production sound, catchy hooks, and group sing alongs as their previous records. The differences are slight; I’d say the solos are less James Williamson/Stooges-y and are a little more chaotic and noisy. I don’t know how Davila can use so much reverb on everything and not have the sound go to complete shit—maybe compression on the overall mix? If I had to complain (and I always do), I’d say the low end should be more present.
